100 Violet Roots but Only 1 Blog

Two hundred and forty-six, one hundred and eight. Those are the numbers that represent my time with Violet Roots. Earlier this week and late last week I mentioned that I had officially posted 100 times on Violet Roots. That number just kind of snuck up on me.

I didn’t think about doing anything special for this milestone since I didn’t even think about it until it actually happened. Don’t worry, you won’t hear me shouting about every 100 posts or every small step that I take but I think that during the first year of blogging you should celebrate the little achievements that you make along the way.

It’s kind of like having a baby. You make a big deal when they reach 1 month, 6 months, 10 months every time they learn something new within that first year it’s heavily documented. Of course, having a child is an enormous endeavor but you get the point.

During the first year of this blog, I’m going to celebrate the small steps because time moves too quickly and before I know it blogging will be an old hat for me.

So that brings me back to those numbers. . .


246 days

100 posts

8 months

I can guarantee you than there hasn’t been a single one of those 246 days where I didn’t work on Violet Roots in some way shape or form. Even the days where I needed to take a break I still checked emails, made sure my tweets were scheduled and I probably still posted something on Instagram.

By the way, if you’re up for a snoop you can see exactly how my blog has impacted the way I post on Instagram if you just scroll down toward anything before February of this year.

There are still plenty of things that I would like to do both within and outside of this blog but I think that Instagram is a good example of how my approach to things has changed and been shaped by the time I’ve spent blogging. I’ve become so immersed in it that I didn’t even realize that I had written 100 posts!

So what’s next? Well, that’s for another post later this month! I’m starting a new series and I’m pretty stoked about it so keep a look out for that. In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to share some of the most popular posts from the past several weeks. I did a round-up like this during my 6-month anniversary post but I’m going to exclude all of those articles and just focus on the content that has been published since then.

Have an idea which violet roots (see what I did there?) resonated the most with you guys? See if you guessed which 10 recent posts topped the list!
