My friend Cassie at Primitive and Proper shared a really fun post yesterday and challenged us to share a similar one called “Me in Numbers.” It’s essentially a challenge to back away from the stats and figures of our blog and get to the numbers that really matter to us and make us who we are. So I thought I’d play along. I will say she was much more sharing than I will be… bra sizes and weight will probably not be published on this blog… EVER.
I am 30 years old. I had a hard time with it at first but I’ve adjusted and I think it’s going to be a pretty great decade.
I have 1 Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
I have been married for 4 years and 9 months. My husband John is the greatest gift that God has ever given me.
I am currently 20 weeks pregnant (half way!!!!) That is the second greatest gift.
I technically attended 4 colleges and received just 1 degree, which was not in the plans but each college allowed me to meet some of the greatest people that I am proud to call friends.
I have had over about 250 stitches over the course of my life. I am accident prone to say the least.
I’ve been blogging for 1 year and 6 months now. I have no idea why I started. It was definitely a whim. Sometimes I’m glad I did it and other times, I struggle with the pressure of it.
I currently have about 40 game pieces for McDonald’s Monopoly. I’m addicted to it every year. I don’t know why. I know I’ll never win.
I have worked at my current job for 5 years and 6 months.
I read 52 blogs regularly but I subscribe to over 300.
I have around 650 followers. My goal was 500 by the end of this year and I’ve definitely accomplished that.
Last month, I had 42,000 hits. It’s nothing compared to some blogs and it’s a ton compared to others. I try not to compare my blog to others anymore, only to myself and what I want to accomplish. That was my best month ever and I’m happy with it.
My most popular post ever is my Burlap Wreath tutorial with 26,600 hits.
This is what Cassie said yesterday:
“I am more than a number. You are more than a number. You are more than facebook fans, followers, pageviews, or pins. Do not let numbers define you.”I think this is such an important reminder. My blog is a big part of my life, but it also has very little to do with what makes me… me.
