🍾Happy one year anniversary!🍾
Time flies when you’re having fun!
It’s been an entire year since I gave birth to this site and what a year it has been. Between Nashville, Disney World, unraveling a long lost confidence and pumping posts for this website, I’ve been a busy bee and I realize how much I love sharing my life with people.
When I created this site a year ago, its original purpose was to be an outlet to share product reviews and maybe dabble in other aspects of daily living. I never thought of myself as someone who led an “interesting” life, but to me, it didn’t matter if other people read what I posted (though it certainly helps!). I discovered how much I have grown over the course of the year and realized that this was the best tool to document said growth.
Finding a consistent posting schedule became easier once I realized what kind of content I wanted to generate on the site. Even though I wish I posted more over the year, I realize how much of a time commitment running a lifestyle blog really is and I fully respect the hustle of those who dedicate their lives to it!
I find myself etching time out daily to work on posts and future projects and with establishing a semi-normal routine, I often find myself saying ‘oh I could do a blog post about this or that!’. It’s become a part of my life that I couldn’t imagine not wanting to continue to do even if there are days that I get frustrated with finding the time. Sometimes there’s truly not enough hours in a day!
With my 2017 Resolutions post, I decided to make the year all about accountability. I was sick of making excuses for myself and accepting things just as they were. 2016 was a year of complacency and I hated how when I reflected on the year, I couldn’t recall any outstanding memories. I am proud to say while reflecting on 2017, I felt an incredible sense of accomplishment and truly felt like I grew as a person.
Because I proved to myself that I am able to etch out time and create content on a consistent basis, I decided to give myself a little gift: sarahhlokk.com!
That’s right, ya girl stopped being frugal and bought herself a domain! It’s been an idea I’ve been toying around for a while, but I wanted to prove more to myself that I was able to commit to something, like a lifestyle blog.
All of the content will still be the same (with some additions!), but I’m excited to take the next step and share another year of accountability, growth and consistency with you!
A major shoutout is needed for those who have taken the time to read my content or watch my videos and share this site. I cannot express my gratitude enough. 💞
So cheers to new beginnings and closing out 2017 on a high note. And may 2018 be another year of memories, growth and learning a thing or two about my/our selves!
