    I’ve never thought about blogging. It seems like a lot of work only to have to deal with crazy or mean commenters on Facebook or the blog, lol. You have more gumption than I do!

  2. This is very good information to know. Thank you for your honesty.

  3. Wow, ten years. That’s a long time for any blog. I’m curious what your blog names were before? I wonder if I’ve bumped into them before. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I’ve had a few.. Sweetie’s Studio, Natalie Made It, The Layout Site.. lol I would never think of myself as a popular blog though, nor do I really try. I’m a no name blogger, lol

  4. A bloggers support group sounds like it’d be very helpful. I’ve mulled around for a few years to start a blog but decided I didn’t have the time and energy for it. I’m happy with being a blog reader 🙂

  5. I have been blogging just as long as you! I took a break for about a year because we moved twice last year and I’m now settled and wanting to dive back in again…but really I’m kind of scared. Like you said, everyone has a blog so finding something unique to say that everyone else isn’t saying is hard. I’m hoping 2018 is my year, but I know I HAVE to put in the hard work!!

    1. I feel if I had more free time to dedicate to my blog, but my passion is food and as a chef, that takes all of my time really.

  6. Yes, yes, and yes! A real post!
    I’ve been blogging for eight years. I always have people asking me to help with starting a blog or thinking it’s the funnest and easiest thing in the world to do. A lot of people don’t understand that it takes a TON of work and dedication. Even after eight years, I’m just an average blogger (no big name here).

    I wish I had started 10 yrs ago now too, but I still haven’t.

  10. I have a lot of respect for bloggers because I know that I could not do it.

  11. Very good to know, lots of new blogs now

  12. TO each their own.

    If its what makes you happy.

    Make the most of each and every day.
