Putting this post together is one the hardest things that I have ever done, because I am so awed at what has happened within two years, and if I were to go on and on, I would feel some words rolling down my cheeks. Before writing this, I took a look at my archives and at my Blogiversary post in 2016 from the previous site, then I drew a progress table and it is totally terrific!
Blogiversary Progress Report
|Year One||Year Two|
|Search Engine Referrals (number of times referred)||124||2,416|
The best way I can explain the progress to you is making you see it for yourself. I am so so grateful to God and so so grateful to you! You know, how would I have pulled this off if you had not been behind your screens reading, sharing and leaving comments! I am so thankful and I really pray that God will enlarge your coasts and bless your kind hearts in Jesus name.
And yes, the blog is 2 today! (Obvious right?) I really wish I could meet each one of you in person and have a long chat with you, over some really nice meal. Would be amazing innit?
The blog plans for this past year were accomplished to a large extent, one of which included sending newsletters to subscribers. Yes, I finally got a hang of it and I hoped you enjoyed every word of my first letter.

There are definitely some new goals for the new year and others to come within the year. Some of them include more lifestyle posts. This year, I hope to strike a balance between the inspirational posts and the lifestyle posts. I hope to send you more and more newsletters (no, I won’t over bother your mailboxes). I’m just talking about better consistency. It’s the year to work with brands too! Thanks to a better readership and follower base, and it’s the year for advertisements. Let me know what else you would like to see here on the blog in the comment section or in my mailbox: email@example.com
