Happy Blogiversary to Maelese Joy Blog!


Today, my website has been up and running for exactly ONE YEAR! I cannot believe I have been doing this for a year. I know that may not sound like that long but I've got to be honest, I had no idea if I could keep this up for that long haha

When I launched this blog, my husband and I decided that I would try my hardest to keep this up for at least a year and then I would reevaluate if this was something I still loved doing. Well, the day has come and I can honestly say that I still love it and plan to continue with it. When I first launched, I was scared, probably insecure a little bit, and the whole thing felt awkward. I didn't like taking pictures of myself and kept getting in my own head about launching. I would ask myself who would actually want to read what I put out there? Blogging is already over saturated so what makes me so special? I am so glad I pushed through those thoughts that were holding me back and did this for ME. :)

Thank you to everyone who "likes" and comments on my social media and to those of you who are reading this now. You guys mean the world!

I'm so excited to share a few upcoming holiday collaborations with you guys. I feel so motivated for this upcoming season.

So cheers to one year...and hopefully many more!
