Happy Birthday to The Girl Upstairs

One year ago, I registered The Girl Upstairs with WordPress.
Little did I know how far this blog would go, the friendships I would make, and the experience I would gain.
In just one year, I’ve come farther than I ever thought possible. I’ve met & interacted with thousands of other bloggers, reached over 200 followers, and have – I hope – been able to make the blogging world even better with my light and love.

๐ŸŽ‰ Let’s celebrate!ย ๐ŸŽ‰


(There are a lot of popular posts, so I just picked a selection of them. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

*jaw drops* WOW. I cannot believeย that many people fromย that many countries have visited my blog! That makes me so incredibly happy and overwhelmed to know that my blog has reached so many people. O_o ๐Ÿ˜€
Thank you all so much for spreading my blog and helping me reach all of these people! ๐Ÿ˜€

202 Followers, 150 Posts, experience gained, and aย boatload of wonderful blogging friends.

Look at where we are, and look at where we started.
I started my WordPress journey excited to explore the world of WP, but with noย real clue about the “mechanics” of blogging. And in just one year, look at what has been accomplished.

I couldn’t have done it withoutย you, my wonderful, fantastic, amazingly supportive follower. Thanks for making my blogging experience the best it can be, and for reading & liking my posts, leaving me comments, and making me feel at home here in the blogosphere.

Where will The Girl Upstairs go from here? Only God knows. Butย for know, all I can do is keep doin’ what I’m doin’ and begin to fan this spark into a flame.ย ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Can you believe it’s beenย one whole year since The Girl Upstairs began?
How long have you been with The Girl Upstairs? Are you excited for the future ofย this blog?

I’ll see you in the comments! ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. OH MY GOODNESS GRACE! *tackles Grace in giant hug* Happy blogiversary! I’m so happy that I discovered your blog those months ago, and I love every aspect of it — your writing, photography, having random Hamilton lyric exchanges in the comments with you (and flailing about Hamilton in general!), and most of all, your sweet and kind personality. Thank you for being one of the nicest, most supportive blogging friends ever!
