this is a funny question for me to answer because i am not really sure when that happened/ if it has happened! i became passionate about blogging right when i started! it was fun for me and i enjoyed grabbing my laptop and posting my random thoughts. it wasn’t long before i started thinking in blog posts.
but that passion has changed over the years. as i began spending time in the blog world i found blogs like Today’s Letters and A Beautiful Mess and i started to look into blog design. i googled html. i took pictures on my phone for blog posts. i started organizing my thoughts and posts. i learned from these great big blogs that i looked up to and emailed them my blog questions!
i would go through blogging seasons where i blogged all the time to summers of silence (i worked at summer camp. no internet for the mountaineers). i started to hit made a big leap forward in the blog world when i had Maiedae create my first professional design in january 2012 – it looked like this (i had a really hard time finding this!!). i took another lull, got engaged, began wedding planning and started blogging again. i read Blog Inc over the summer of 2013 and that is when i revamped/ redesigned/ branded the blog Oak + Oats. that was probably my most serious move yet.
currently… my goal is to continue learning and growing. i would love this place to be my full time job so that i can stay at home with my babies (which is a long term goal because i don’t have any babies now). but i would also like to guest post on some online magazines and get more involved in the writing online world. as well as continue connecting with my readers on a personal level and providing them with awesome giveaways and opportunities!
