It’s hard to believe that I began blogging two years ago. It has been such an exciting adventure and I love seeing how my blog has grown as I re-read old posts.
This past year has been one of immense change for me as I transitioned from a job in higher education and became a full-time blogger and freelance writer. There has yet to be a day where I have regretted my decision, but that doesn’t mean it’s been without challenges. Through it all, my love of the written word and your kind comments have guided me.
I am continually inspired by the wonderful network of bloggers who are always willing to offer their advice and expertise, and who have become friends. From my early days reaching out to Jessi at The Darling Detail, to my coffee meetings in New York City with Elana at Elana Lyn, and being invited to fashion shows for NYFW by Kate at Taffeta and Tulips, I am honored to be among such a supportive group of women.
As I embark on this next year of blogging, I am hopeful and grateful. Hopeful that fruitful opportunities will continue to present themselves and grateful about all that this creative outlet has brought into my life.
But what makes blogging so rewarding at the end of the day is when you, the reader, comment to say that a post resonated with or inspired you. As a writer, that is the greatest praise I could receive.
So as this next year unfolds, you can count on seeing more posts about fashion, style, career, beauty, health, and wellness. But I would also like to hear if there is anything else you want to see Living in Steil cover. Because you are the reason for this site. Please leave any thoughts or suggestions in the comments below!
Thank you for two wonderful years. Wishing you all a happy Friday and a wonderful Valentine’s Day. I’m looking forward to indulging in some decadent crêpes on Sunday from my favorite crêperie, Sweet ‘n’ Savory.
P.S. I am now on Snapchat! You can find me at livinginsteil. I’d love to connect with you there.
Here’s a look back at my very first post!
