Five Year Blog Anniversary

November 8, 2017

Hello blog friends.

Today is my 5th Year Blog Anniversary!

5 Year Blog Anniversary at Julie's Creative Lifestyle

I can't believe how fast the time has gone by and that it is already five years.  I remember when I first started this blog, and I had no idea what blogging was or how to write a blog post.  

I got started with this blog by the help of my teenager and she encouraged me to share my recipes and crocheting with you.  I am so happy that she suggested that I start a blog and I thank her for introducing me to the blogging world!

I have learned so much and I'm still learning a lot about blogging.  I have enjoyed finding and reading such nice blogs and making wonderful blog friends from all over the world.

I am also inspired by all of your talents and I enjoy looking at your crafts, recipes, homes, household and decorating tips, and travel vacations.  I just wish I had more time to make your recipes and crafts!

One thing that has really made me happy, is that some of you have even made my crochet projects and recipes.  I do hope that I continue to inspire all of you.

You also make me so happy by your support and sharing your projects each week, at the blog party I co-host with Jess from Plucky's Second Thought.  You guys are so awesome!

I even had the opportunity to meet some of you in person, and that was such an awesome experience for me.  I love meeting blog friends and I hope to meet more of you in person, as I continue to blog.

Thank you for the fun five years of blogging, support, and friendship.  I have loved all of your visits to my blog, and your lovely comments throughout the years.

I look forward to another fun year of blogging with you!  😀👍

  1. Five years, wow! That is a long time. I started in 2013 and I think you are one of the first bloggers I met, Julie. I'm so glad we've become friends and one of these days, thanks to your inspiration, I will learn to crochet! Congratulations my friend! ❤️

  2. Congratulations on five years, Julie. I have never done any of your crochet projects(because I don't know how to crochet) but I have tried some of your wonderful recipes.

    I hope you stick around a long, long time in blogland, Julie. xo Diana

  3. Happy Blogiversary!!! I'm so glad you started blogging too !!!

  4. Happy Blogiversary Julie, doesn't the time fly! your post encouraged me to look back and see when my first post was, I can't believe it was January 2011! I love your blog and I hope that you stick around for the next five years and more, so many bloggers seem to have disappeared such a shame. :) xx

  5. Happy Blog Anniversary! I love reading your posts every week and hope you keep blogging for many years. :-)

  12. Happy Blogaversary Julie!! And thank you for hosting every week, I know that's a lot of extra work! Funny coincidence, when I was thinking about starting a blog I ran the idea by my daughter who surprised me by saying "you should do it Mom!" I started my blog in Aug 2012, so we are sort of blog sisters!

  13. Congratulations, Julie! I'm thrilled to count myself among the blog friends you have met in person! Thanks for all of your creativity and inspiration! I hope you keep at it for many more years, as long as it continues to make you happy!
