It’s My Blogging Anniversary! Link Up Your First Post!

by Carrie with Children with 37 comments

Yesterday marked my one year blogging anniversary.  I think it’s technically referred to as my “blogiversary”… but you get the point.

My first post, one year ago was all about naming my girls, Maggie and Molly.  I thought we had picked such strong and powerful Irish names, little did I know that their names would also be recognized for something else too…..The most popular dog names!   Haha!

If you have your own blog, I’d love to read your very first post.  Check out the linky below to join in on the fun! We all started somewhere – so no worries if you don’t think it’s “good” – this is all in good fun.  I’ve had fun the last few days looking back at some of my first posts. I’ve done a lot of growing – in terms of my site and as a person too!

My friend, Nicole over at By Word of Mouth Musings came up with this idea a few months ago for her own blogiversary and I thought it would be fun to do here too!

So….what are you waiting for?   Link up your first post!
