Today marks one year since my little space here has been up! I can’t believe it has already been a year since I started my journey in the blogging world. I can definitely say that I have absolutely loved every part of it and I’m so excited that I finally decided to start Miss Southern!
I never imagined that I would truly love blogging as much as I do. When I began this page I said I would be happy if just one person read and if I touched just one person in some way. I chose my launch date based on my trip to Haiti last summer. I traveled to Haiti at the end of May first of June last summer to share God’s love with the kids and people of Haiti. I knew, without a doubt, that I wanted to be able to document my experience and also share it with as many people as I could. So three of my first few posts were Haiti recaps found here, here and here. To this day those three posts are still a few of my favorite posts I have written.
I was blown away by the blogging world before I had even launched my page. I began following Bri at Swashbuckle & Flow after being paired with her for a blogging Christmas ornament exchange and then we began following each other on twitter. This is where she saw that I was going to Haiti and taking any donations of new socks and underwear for the kids when she contacted me. She used this as a teaching lesson for her kids and they colored pictures and mailed me donations for me to deliver to Haiti. I was in awe that all the way from Minnesota donations were arriving to Oklahoma for children is so much need in Haiti…all because of blogging! I received the package from Bri and her kids and thought wow, I haven’t even started truly blogging and felt that already several were going to be touched because of the blog world.
The first blogger I started following:
Jessica at Little Baby Garvin- I started following her page a few years ago and have been hooked ever since! It is kind of funny because Jessica now is mostly a mommy blogger and I have no kids, not even a dog, but I absolutely love her page!
A Few of My Favorite Bloggers Include:
Jessica at Little Baby Garvin also doubles as my favorite blogger along with Sarah at Venus Trapped in Mars, April at A. Liz Adventures and Lauren McMullen. Of course I have so many more but these are just a few.
