This month marks the fifth anniversary of my blog. I seriously cannot believe it has been that long! When I started this blog, I had no idea it would turn into such a long-term endeavor. I figured that I just loved sugar more than anyone I knew, and I might as well as get something from it. I am so glad I chose to do this because it has taught me so much including:
– You can channel creativity with baking, and people will like it
– You can gain loyal followers, who are equally as passionate about food as you are.
– Social Media is key
– There are so many different strategies you can use to market your blog.
– No many how times you mess up your recipe, the end result is only what matters.
– Good lighting is your best friend!
– If you do so in ”moderation”, you can eat all the recipes on the blog, without gainingweight. I assure you.
If you are thinking about starting a blog, I highly suggest that you do. I’m not going to lie, it is work, but it is completely worth it. You will learn so much more in your first year of blogging than you will at most jobs.
I am so thankful for all of you, who have followed my journey throughout the past 5 years. It has been an amazing ride so far!
