Happy Birthday, ArtfullyMegan.com!

Happy birthday, ArtfullyMegan.com! Last Saturday marked my blog’s 3rd birthday, the anniversary of when I decided to take the plunge and start my own blog. As a teenager and young adult, I dabbled in forum administration/moderation and blogging, but this is the first time I decided to own something and really go for it.

I posted frequently in 2015, but things slowed down andΒ I took a two-year hiatus to get my life situated. I always felt a calling to come back, and I think that is what kept me from shutting it down while I was away. I’m grateful, because ArtfullyMegan.com was still here, waiting for me.

What’s Next?

I’m excited for the learning opportunity, the people I will meet, and the doors it may open. There’s so much to learn when it comes to running a website. I know that immersing myself in it will help me to appreciate the process and learn new skills.

Maintaining the blog also means a lot to me on a personal level. In some ways, I feel like I need to discover who I am and understand what my purpose is in the world. I’m looking forward to chronicling my journey through creative, meaningful living.

Lastly, I’m reminded of a quote that I posted on my personal Instagram years ago:

I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say ‘Because of you, I didn’t give up.’

If anything about this process can serve as someone’s inspiration or motivation, then it will have been worth it.

I don’t know who is out there reading this, if anyone. But for everyone reading now and everyone that is to come, you are appreciated and thank you for your support!
