Hi everyone!! Today is a very exciting day for Label Me Merrit, because my little blog is officially 3 years old! I can’t believe I have been writing and sharing with you guys for 3 whole years, and I truly cannot believe I am lucky enough to be able to call this my job!
Every year I share a couple of blog related posts to celebrate another year of blogging under my belt. I like keeping track of how my blog has grown and changed over the years, and you guys seem to like getting a peak into the back-end of Label Me Merrit! You can see all of the posts I’ve shared for previous Blogiversaries here.
One of the posts I like to share every year is a look at some of the numbers that make up this little blog. You can find my stats from year 1 here and year 2 here. I just think it is the coolest thing seeing how different areas of my blog have grown, and watching the numbers change through the years. So this is definitely one of my favorite posts to put together each year.
Another funny little habit I’ve started developing over the last couple years is being away on vacation during my blogiversary, which is never planned. Last year Melissa and I were up in Cape Cod. This year, I am writing this post while off the coast of Mykonos in the middle of a Mediterranean cruise. I’ll just throw it out there that this is a trend I wouldn’t mind perpetuating in future years 😉
Now let’s get to some fun numbers that make up Label Me Merrit, shall we?!
This Year’s Stats
218 total published posts (125 – over half the total – in this past year alone)
