35 Ways to Celebrate Your Blogoversary

Hello December! This is an exciting month for PFL!

Save the Date - Rx Fitness Lady

I launched this blog the day after Christmas last year in 2012. I’ve been fortunate enough to read several blogs that have celebrated anniversaries in my short journey of blogging. After reading Kita’s anniversary post last week, I thought I’d start this month off with a list post.

  1. Thank you for the shout. You have done wonders with your blog and I know you will go far in your journey. I am going to go back through your list and make sure I didn’t miss anything. I have been on a week vacation from blogging and commenting and I know I am behind.
    Kita recently posted…It’s my anniversaryMy Profile

    • I followed suit Kita and took the rest of last week off as well. I did browse through the blogs but I credit you for reminding me to take time out to enjoy family! Thanks hun!

  2. Great ideas. Though I’m in my 3rd year (I think), I don’t have a date date. I’ve never blog consistently so I need to pick a date. I did changed over to self-hosted on a December date though and moved from blogger to squarespace. That’s documented. Maybe I’ll make my January 1st. You given me some ideas. I’m printing this (actually sending the post to my Kindle). Beautiful picture of you. You know I’m totally jealous of your hair.

      • Yeah I don’t think that date counts. I guess an anniversary is an anniversary huh? Duh. But my first post is June I think and I wrote maybe three post the rest of the year. Going to look – hold on – June 26, 2010 and I wrote 10 post for the whole year. Okay that’s my blogoversary. Puttin’ in on the calendar.

    • Hey Dana, we’ve been at it about the same amount of time. I’ll be looking forward to see how your 1 year unfolds!

  3. I am ROTFL over here because I was just asking myself yesterday, “What should I do for my 1 year blog anniversary next month?” Ha! Great ideas and tips. I’ll be snagging one of them. Can’t wait to see which ones you choose. Congratulations my friend!

    I am looking forward to the anticipation of Christmas through Deuce’s eyes. He encountered his first “Santa is not real” comment from a friend and told him, “That’s not true. You don’t know what you are talking about.” Drop mic.

    • Leave it to me sis to read your mind, lol! I hate that little bad arses choose to try to ruin it for other children. Parents should teach kids to keep their mouthes shut till high school, lol!

    • Thanks in advance Allie! I appreciate your blog friendship. I love finally having a fellow Les Mills informant on the scene 🙂 !

  4. Hey Joi!!!!! It’s sooo good to be back, I’ve missed you guys!! Awww….thank you for the S.O. girl. I really appreciate it! 🙂 Wow, a whole year…you’ve done a great job!! I remember how I met you too! Don’t know how you found me(glad you did though), but you came by in January and commented on the post I wrote about my 24th wedding anniversary. From that day on, we’ve been bloggy buddies!!:-) I can’t think of anything to add to your list(as always, you’ve outdone yourself). So excited to see all the goodies you’ve got in store! My Thanksgiving was tiring, but oh so FUN!! Hope yours was too!! 🙂
    Michell recently posted…Mastering YOU Monday….free yourselfMy Profile

    • It was nice Michell! Ah, light years ago. So much has changed since that day. I remember it well. I am not sure where I found you. Back in those days, I was all over the place trying to find my own circle of blog friends. I’m so glad I did find you. There was so much wisdom in that post, but then again…all of your posts are like that! Thank you for being you and sharing it with the world!

  5. So proud of all you’ve accomplished in one year, Joi! I’m looking forward to going home this month and spending Christmas and my birthday in some hot sun! My blogaversary is in June, so I have some time to implement some of your great suggestions,

  6. Happy Bloggyversary upcoming! How exciting 🙂 Feels like I have totally known you for more than a year!! These are great ideas to celebrate, I can’t wait to see what you do! I don’t think I have ever celebrated, maybe that will change in 2014!

  7. 35 great tips. I changed my header and moved to self hosting for my blogoversary. I love that little count down button. Congrats on having such a wonderfully encouraging blog. I’m super excited to see what the rest of your anniversary celebration will entail.

    • Hey! I remember that Hope! I remember your SITS feature day too. So glad we crossed paths! You have blessed my life in so many ways! Thank you!

    • You are so busy just being a super mom and wife Leslie! Congrats though. I admire that you are very comfortable in your blogging journey and knowing where your priorities are.

    • Yes ma’am Shrelle! I keep pondering on how it’s a natural part of my life now. I am always thinking…Hey, what does everyone else do with their spare time, lol!

    • Hey Kennie! Been missing you darling! Now you know, I must turn this into a post 🙂 ! In general, I never thought I’d connect to people like this. When I’d see blogs with lots of comments, I kind of thought they were blogging celebrities, lol. I didn’t realize how much time people take fostering their blog relationships…it’s priceless. It was hard adjusting to the time commitment in the beginning but now I’m in a flow and I realize I can’t do it all. Thanks for the question darling!

  8. You listed so many amazing ideas, my eyes started twirling around in my head. LMHO!! I can’t believe you’ve had this blog for less than a year. I don’t know how many subscribers you have, but it appears you have garnered QUITE the following. What an accomplishment in such a short time!! XOXO
    Meredith recently posted…Are You Wearing These Yet?!My Profile

    • Hey Meredith! I think we connected very soon after I launched through DYWW! I’m so glad we did! Thank you for the support!

  9. These are some great ideas. I’ve seen a lot of them in the blogosphere so far. I have a while to go before mine comes especially since I didn’t start Homemaking With Style until August so I have a lot of time. I just hope I will be able to do it big. All of my supporters like you would really deserve to see something huge. 🙂

    • Whatever you do, I’m sure readers will be appreciative! I am thinking you will have much more important things on your mind around that time :)!

  10. Congrats! Never thought of celebrating my Blogoversary! Hmm…I am a terrible blogger though. Not consistent at ALL! lol
    Plus, I kinda started all over again because over the last 6 months or so I finally got the hang of what I really want to write about. Great ideas you posted above! Just might have to try this.

    • Thanks Sonya! I know it feels good to have a direction in blogging. Congrats on that! I’ll look forward to whenever you choose to celebrate your blogging journey!

  11. Happy “Almost” Blog-o-versary!!! Hope you’ve enjoyed your last year and made a lot of lasting connections. It’s been fun getting to know you through your blog.

  12. I love your blog and would have never thought that you have only had this blog for a year. You’re site is awesome and so inspiring. this post is so timely for me.. i am celebrating my 5 year blogoversary on December 29. I am working on my plans now and you have definitely given me some other ideas to think about.. thanks as always for the thorough and informative posts!
