4 Years of Blogging: Looking Back and Looking Forward

4 Years of Blogging: Looking Back and Looking Forward

Pop the champagne and toss up the confetti – today, Snuggly Oranges is 4 years old!!! Holy crap guys. I am simultaneously impressed and shocked, and at the same time, I’m shrugging this off because it’s not really a big deal. I don’t have trouble sticking with hobbies, and I was blogging long before I ended up here. So it makes sense that I’d still be here. I’ve never really celebrated a “blogiversary” before, but with four years… this blog is a college graduate! It seems like the right time to do some reflecting. In four years I… Posted 756 times.

Top Reason I Love Being A Blogger/Reader

Top Reason I Love Being A Blogger/Reader

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here.
