February 22, 2016 is Growing Up KaterTot's first birthday! One year ago, I published my very first blog post, Frozen Yogurt Snacks for Kids, and I haven't looked back since! It's hard to believe that a year has passed, and I'm thrilled with how far my blog has come and all of the amazing experiences I've had, wonderful people I've met, and opportunities I've been offered through this blog.
When I launched Growing Up KaterTot, I had absolutely no knowledge of what it takes to run a successful blog. I literally dove in head first and learned as I went along. Through my interactions with other amazing and helpful bloggers, tons of time spent researching, and lots of trial and error, I've gained valuable knowledge about blogging, which has helped me to build a supportive and wonderful group of followers. I couldn't ask for any more than that!
I've also had some amazing product review opportunities, and I'm happy to have developed positive professional relationships (and some meaningful friendships) with fantastic brand representatives and creative entrepreneurs. Who knew that writing reviews would be so much fun?!
This past year has been phenomenal, and I wouldn't trade my experiences for the world. Blogging has actually made me a better person. Strange as this may sound, writing for my blog has boosted my confidence. My blog has been a springboard for me to express myself from both a parenting and personal standpoint. Growing Up KaterTot is a true representation of me, and I'm proud that I had the courage to take the first step share my thoughts and ideas with the world.
So, here's to one very successful year blogging! *Clink!* And to many more to come! Thank you, my loyal followers, for all of your support and expression of kindness and love. Growing Up KaterTot would not be successful without you!
