Celebrating My One Year Blogiversary!

by - January 19, 2016

It sounds so weird saying this, but my blog has officially turned one year old today. I've been having so much fun with blogging that I didn't even notice how much time had passed. I was actually scheduling posts to go up this week which is when it struck me that this huge milestone was coming up.

What a year 2015 was!!!

To recap for you, my blog has gone through various changes over the past year, not only aesthetically, but also in niche. But I don't want to get too ahead of myself, so let's start with the aesthetics.

If you've followed me from the very beginning, then you are probably very aware of the numerous theme changes, lol. What can I say.... I'm a perfectionist. I can happily say though, that their won't be any changes in the foreseeable future because I'm in love with the look I have now.

Secondly, about half way through the year last year I changed niches. If you're a blogger, then you know that when you first start blogging, you're just getting your footing and figuring out what works for you and what you're passionate about. This was the case with me.

I liked blogging about the things I was blogging about because I felt I had a lot of insight into what I was saying, but realized it was making me happy. After much thought, I decided to change my niche to lifestyle because that's what I was passionate about and those were the types of blogs I enjoyed reading.

I'm looking forward to the year to come and with a new blog camera and exciting things planned, I feel this will be the best year yet for Echanning! Hope you'll stay along for the ride!

To celebrate this milestone, I've decided to compile a list of my most popular posts as sort of a "look back" at last year. Hope you enjoy!
