PB&J Year One

It’s Groundhog Day – again – and that means it’s my blogiversary. One year ago today, I sat down to write my first blog post (ICYMI: https://wordpress.com/post/peanut-butter-and-julie.com/57). On that chilly February morning, I didn’t yet have a clear idea of what my format would be. When I realized it was Groundhog Day, the format instantly became obvious.

I’d thought about writing a blog for as long as blogs have been a thing. As my reward for surviving 2020, I decided the time was right. No more excuses. I was so nervous about anyone actually reading it that I didn’t even tell my family what I was doing until I’d written a few posts. I worried whether people would be interested in what I had to say. I wondered how much of myself I should reveal.

I’ve learned a lot in the past year. I’ve learned I am a much better writer than I ever gave myself credit for. I’ve learned that my posts are actually better when I reveal more of myself. I’ve learned that I still have so much more to say.

To that end, some personal news: Friday was my last day at the part-time job where I’ve worked for the past seven years. I’m going to devote myself to my writing and perhaps make some money doing the thing that I love the most. I’m exploring other options for building my brand. Podcast? Perhaps. YouTube channel? Maybe. A book? Hell yes. In the meantime, I’ll continue to create interesting content for you right here at the OG PB&J.

I want to thank you all, dear readers, and ask you a huge favor: if you are enjoying Peanut Butter & Julie, please like, subscribe, comment and share, share, share. Here’s to year two!
