One Year of [S]iW.



Can you believe I started this blog a year ago today? I sure can't.

[Savannah] in Wonderland has been such a fun ride so far. I started this blog while on vacation in Disneyworld because I wanted a more grown-up space to share my thoughts and passions, and I've had a blast with it ever since. Also, today is my dad's birthday. (Happy Birthday, Dad!)

This blog has surprised me in so many great ways:
  • My audience has grown in number and in demographic. I started this blog as a way to document my thoughts and for my faraway friends to keep track of me, but I expected the demographic beyond that to be young women between the ages of 16-25. Now, I have folks of all ages reading [S]iW, both male and female. That means I've had to expand my range of topics, but it's been so fun hearing feedback from everyone, whether in person or online, near or far (I love talking to my international/faraway readers in the comments!).
  • Some of the topics I've posted about have inspired me in my other writing adventures. In fact, I actually adapted a couple of my posts into full-blown magazine articles this past year. Yay!
  • I discovered that I have a hard time sticking to one color scheme for a long period of time, but that's a-ok. Tastes change sometimes. The content will still be the same, though (and so will the gold glitter bunny logo).
  • Working on the blog has helped me with my writing in general. I can tell that my writing has improved over the past year just from reading through past posts. Writing something every day and getting thoughts out to the internet is so much fun, too, and practice makes perfect, especially as an aspiring author.
  • I've shared a lot with you, dear reader. I shared the story of how I became a Christian. I shared my first time visiting Italy. I shared my college graduation. And I intend to take you along with me for even more stories and adventures.

Truly, I just wanted to say thank you.

Thank you for visiting my corner of the internet, whether you just started following me or have been reading my ramblings for a while now. Thank you for your nice comments and feedback, whether it's been in the comment boxes or in real life. You guys are awesome, and I can't wait to share new posts with you into 2015 and beyond. I also can't wait to see where God leads me through this blog, too. :)

So, here's to a whole second year of [Savannah] in Wonderland! :)
