Hello to my lovely readers,

I’m rolling 3 thoughts into one, as this post is an anniversary, thank-you and a reflection on one year of blogging 😄

Today, this day, one year ago is when I started blogging…blogging for real.

I started in 2014 but didn’t have the gumption to blog regurally. It was 1x a month at the time, if that.

May 17th, 2017 I decided to make my first post: Pregnancy, Parenting and God’s Grace. It was about my long (16-month) absence on the blog and what motherhood is like with a baby and a toddler…and how God’s plans aren’t always my plans, but they turn out to be the BEST plans anyways 😉

I was unsure of where this blog would take me. I was nervous that people wouldn’t like what I had to say. That people would never like my posts or think that my blog was worth reading.

But I was wrong. People did want to hear. People did care. You, my fellow bloggers, were kind. You cared. I was a newbie and you took the time to read my stuff.

So thank-you to all of you. To my readers on and off WordPress. I’m honored. I’m blessed. Thank-you for following my blog. Thank-you for taking the time to read. It means so much to me 🌞❤

I’ve been going through my blog stats, looking at my most-loved posts. Seeing what you guys like so I can improve the blog.

In my reminesce, here are the top 5 posts that you guys loved most on The Buttercup Lamb.

 

Top 5 Posts

1. When Grace Doesn’t Seem Like Enough {5 things to remember}

2. The pain in the quiet, healing flow

3. 5 Favorite Things {on our FL vacation}

4. Nourishing Lentil Stew with Daikon and Sweet Potato

5. Crockpot Calico Beans

Going through these helped me realize what kind of content interests people, which turned out to be the posts that I most enjoyed writing 😯😝

It’s another year. Of learning, growing and writing. I’ve written 100+ posts and have been slowly gaining followers (but pushing closer to the big 200!)

I’ll be brainstorming new ideas for posts, new designs and new ways to mesh my visions and goals with the stuff I love writing about.

Thanks again everyone!

What kinds of topics would you like to see on the blog? Do you enjoy the recipes and food? The poems? Reflections posts? Or maybe something else? Let me know in the comments, it would be such a big help to me 😊
