It is cause for celebration around these parts…wit & whimsy turns 10 today!
I say this every year but when I started this blog on a whim in college, blogging was nowhere near what it is today. It was more so a version of a public journal where you could share your thoughts whenever you pleased. There was no affiliate marketing, no sponsored blog posts, no blogging networks, no Instagram, no Pinterest, no Twitter…it was a completely different world!
I never imagined that my blog would lead me to so many exciting opportunities, to new friends and even to a new business but as I look back on the past decade, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for everything that wit & whimsy has given me.
Today I thought I would share some reflections and lessons I’ve learned from these past 10 years. Blogging has enriched my life in so many ways from starting as a hobby to developing into a business to working with brands I have long admired and provided me relationships I’d not have otherwise. Read on for my thoughts + also an exciting giveaway as a small token of my gratitude to all of you have followed along over the years – you guys make all of this worthwhile!
