This past week, I celebrated my six-year “blogiversary.” Six full years of blogging! Six years of testing recipes, photographing food, writing stories, and sharing it all with you here… I know it’s cliché, but time really does fly when you’re having fun!
When I first contemplated creating a website of my own in October 2010, I called my brother about a hundred times, asking him to re-explain the concept of a blog and how to get started over and over again. As patient as a saint, he walked me through the different steps and options, answering all of my frantic texts and emails about the process.
For the past three years, my blog has been my full-time job and full source of income, and I still think to myself every day, “Is this actually happening? Is this really my life?” I get to work from home… I get to set my own hours… I get to bake sweet treats and take pictures… As my job. For a living.
And you helped make that all possible. Your interest and support has enabled me to turn Amy’s Healthy Baking into my full-time job, and I’m truly grateful!
Every time you visit my website… Every time you pin my recipes on Pinterest… Every time you share something I’ve posted on Facebook… Every time you tag me in your pictures of my recipes on Instagram… Every time you try one of my treats, give some of those goodies to your family and friends, and tell them where you found the recipe…
Those little actions are exactly what have allowed me to turn my blog into my career and income source. From the bottom of my heart… Thank you SO much!
So to express my gratitude, I’m putting the spotlight back on you today! Here are some of the recipes that you’ve tried and pictures that you’ve shared on Instagram. I truly appreciate each and every time you do that; it really means the world to me! ♥
If you’re interested in starting a blog too, I have an easy step-by-step guide on how you can start your own blog here. I wish I had this guide when I first started my blog! (And it takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish!)
I can’t wait to see what you try next! ♥
Would you like to see your picture in my next Sunday Spotlight? Then share it with me on Instagram using #amyshealthybaking and tag @amyshealthybaking IN the photo itself. (That guarantees I’ll see your picture! ?) I can’t wait to see what recipes you make!
