It absolutely shocks me that this little blog of mine was started 5 years ago this summer. I could never have imagined that I would keep blogging after years of doing it. I just ended up falling in love with it and becoming addicted to learning more and more. I also love reading other blogs and loved this post over on Coffee with Summer where she shared past posts that will hep new readers get to know her.
I thought it was such a great idea and given the fact that I have been blogging for awhile now I wanted to create a similar post to share some of my past posts. I’m sure that many of the people who read my blog, in the beginning, may not be who is reading it now and new followers probably have not read these posts I wrote years ago. I hope this gives everyone reading this a chance to read posts of mine they haven’t seen before.
My Stroke of Luck // One of the reasons I started blogging was because I had a stroke.

The best advice I’ve ever been given // This is still some of the best advice I’ve received. I have shared it with lots of people because I think it’s really important.
Questions I get asked when I say I’m a blogger and my answers//I’ve written a lot of posts about blogging but this one really stands out to me because when you are a blogger people in your real life don’t always understand what it is that you do.
I hope you get the chance to check out some of these past posts. I have really enjoyed putting together this post. After blogging for so long now there are a lot of posts that I had forgotten about doing. I’m also going to be updating a bunch of old posts.
I forgot how much more I use to write about my life in the first couple years of blogging. I realize I miss doing that so I’m going to make the effort to do a personal post on my life every few weeks or so. They are fun to look back on after you’ve forgotten about them. Let me know in a comment if you have any questions for me and if there are any posts you’d like me to write about.
