6 Things I’ve Learned About Blogging

Friends, guess what today is? It’s my first blogoversay! That’s right, Three Chatty Cats got its start one year ago today on January 20, 2016.

That date seems like so long ago, yet also just yesterday. First off, I can’t believe that it’s already 2017. And that a whole year has gone by with my blog is amazing (to me, anyway).

While I still have a lot to learn about blogging, I thought I’d take this time to share what I’ve learned this past year. So, if you’re new to blogging or an old pro, I hope something from this list speaks to you. Continue reading “6 Things I’ve Learned About Blogging”

Of course you don’t have to “accept” the nomination and follow the outlined steps. But for me, why not? It’s a good way to get to know my fellow bloggers, and I by no means will hold it against any of my nominees if they choose to ignore it. The hardest part about this for me will be sharing 11 interesting facts. I don’t talk about myself often; I’d rather talk about cats! But here goes… Continue reading “Liebster Award Nomination”
