One Year Later

Ok, I lie. 
It hasn't been 365 days of blogging, its technically been three years of blogging.

'10: 8 posts. LAME 
'11: 15 posts. Better
'12: 172 post. Now THATS the stuff. 

After much thought, ok a little thought, I decided that my blogs birthday will be December 23. 
There are 3 reasons. 

1. It was my SECOND High Five for Friday post. Aka I actually followed through with something on this here blog. 
2. It was the first day that Jessica commented and our Blogger Bestieship was born.
(Coincidentally I am actually meeting her TODAY in PERSON)


3. Because it's my blog and I can cry decided its birthday if I want to 


One year later I have

83,754 page views
377 Friends 
and LOTS OF LOVE. 

Now this brings me to some other news. 
I am changing my blog name. 
 I know, I know. weird. 

Starting sometime in January my blog will now be called 

Meg Everyday. 

I will be writing more about this when all the changes come about, but I hope you will continue along for the ride!

In the mean time, lets talk about the last year... On Thursday night Reese and I went out to celebrate one year of blogging... Well really we just went out to dinner and I decided half way though the dinner  it was celebratory, handed him the phone and made him take a picture.

I feel like this picture does an EXCELLENT job of showing exactly what blogging has done for me in the past year...


1. Work Out Clothes: Blogging has really inspired me to focus on my health. If I am going to have to take all these selfies to post on the internet I HAVE TO BE LOOKIN GOOOOOOD. I mean why else would I need to work out? 

2. Trendy Hair Style: If the rise of the SOCK BUN is any indication blogging has a signifiant impact on hairstyles across the board. My hair, as shown here, always is in the best trendy (HA NOT), but I will say I know at least know where to go to figure out what to do with this mop on top of my head (Thanks KATE!)

3. Healthy Food: Despite pintrest trying to lul me into their sugar coma inducing traps I HAVE prevailed and continued to started to eat significantly healthier! Much like looking all trim for my selfies I have started to eat a whole lot better because my food has to look good while instagraming it... I mean there is no way to make a Big Mac look good... even with the amaro filter :)

4.  Brunch:Obviously if one is going to blog one must brunch. Hubble and Hudson, it normally is our brunch spot but it seemed appropriate for a celebration as well! As for the two forks I don't really have an explanation or a connection to blogging... lame. 

Thanks friends for sticking with my ramblings, I appreciate and LOVE all of you.
Here's to the next year and bigger and better things for this little blog!

Happy Birthday to Meg's blog!

So so fun that you get to meet Jessica! How weird that it's on the same day that she first commented on your blog. =)

Happy Blogiversary, love! I'm excited to see your new blog unveiling next month. I think I saw on Twitter that Aubrey is redesigning for you, and I can't wait to see it! Your new name makes me think of Kendi Everyday -- but with more humor and sass. ;) (No offense to Kendi.) I hope you and J had fun today! Love you!

Whitney said...

Love you!
