My blog has screwed up. Majorly.

I spent a lot of time writing a blog post that I was pretty proud of. I published it, shared it on my Facebook, and received some positive feedback. I go back on my blog today, and much to my confusion, I see that the post was never technically published and what I shared on Facebook was only a draft. None of my work was actually published and now for some reason over half of the post is missing from the draft so basically all of my work is gone 😦 So, sorry readers if you wanted to read about my fame dreams, YA CAN’T. NO ONE FREAKING CAN. Damn WordPress.

I hate the feeling of hard work going to waste. I spent a long time working on that post and now its just gone with nothing to show for it! I mean, yeah I got my feelings out and whatever, but this isn’t a freaking journal its a blog and I wanted people to read it! Plus it makes me look lazy because now I haven’t posted since Monday… Wait is was actually SUNDAY! Ugh. Damn you WordPress!

Not going to lie I’ve gotten used to the feeling of hard work going to waste. You’ve read about my running woes numerous times. I’ve been working my ass off trying to get back into running but I always end up getting sick or hurt and have to stop. I’m used to that happy feeling of hard work being sucked away in one quick moment of vulnerability.

But, what I have learned is that you have to find positivity in those low moments. It may be cliche, but its true. So tonight, I may be pissed that my blog f***ed up, but I’m not gonna let it bring me down! I’m gonna finish this whiny blog post, and write another, 10X BETTER post! Plus, times where you are knocked down are the best times to whip out a good quote. And boy, do I love a good quote. I find this one appropriate…

Every setback is a setup for a comeback. God wants to bring you out better than you were before.

Okay, you may be thinking that the trashed blog post is not that big of a setback. Get over it. I’m dramatic and pissed.

Alright enough of this negativity, it’s time to write a new kickass post! I’m not gonna let this one glitch bring me down.

Until next time! (And by next time, I mean like an hour from now…)

P.S. To make this whiny post just a little bit brighter, here is an adorable picture of my dogs 🙂



One Month of Blogging!

As of today, I have officially been blogging for one month! And what a month it has been! When I first began, I had a goal of reaching 1,000 blog views in my first month. Well as I write this, I am standing at 2,576 views! I far exceeded my goal, and I owe that to those of you who have been consistently reading my posts. I have been absolutely overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and encouragement  I have received from everyone. Not only my from family; but friends, acquaintances, and complete strangers. I have received so many nice comments and I am extremely thankful for that…it makes me proud of what I’ve done so far, and more motivated to keep on writing.

I had wanted to start a blog for years, but I always put it off because I never knew what to write about. I never knew what should be the central theme of my blog… Running? Sports? Music? Etc, etc? Well, I never really picked one particular thing; and I just decided to write about my life, my stories, and my thoughts. This blog really has no identity; its just a big bunch of randomness. I didn’t really think people would be interested in reading my stories, but I guess some people are, based on my success this month. It really means a lot to me that people enjoy reading my stories and can relate to them in their own right. That’s all I’m really trying to do… Write about things that will make people smile, think, and reflect.

I’m going to keep writing about whatever the heck is on my mind that particular day. BUT I would like to accommodate my readers. I am posting a poll, and I want to know which topics you would like to see more of. I’m featuring the topics that have been popular, based on views, likes, and comments. Anyway, I would really appreciate your feedback! Let me know what you want to see more of!

Again, thank you all so much for joining me and supporting me on this ride! You all have made this such an enjoyable experience for me. Blogging has become my biggest hobby, writing is the highlight of my day, and most importantly this has become an outlet for me to express myself. I can’t wait for many, many more months of blogging! I hope they are all as great as the first!

All my love…

xoxo Katie
