six years blogging

August 10, 2016

Do you know what today is?

Today marks the 6th year that I’ve been a blogger. In 2010 I hit send on my first ever blog post. Every year I do these posts and I feel as if I sound like a broken record. This is the first year that I can’t say its an actual blog anniversary due to the fact that I announced the  rebrand from Lipgloss and Binky to Unlikely Martha on this day 1 year ago.

I will say THANK YOU to all of you for taking the time out of your day to read, comment and connect with me. Some of you since 2010 some of you since yesterday but my appreciation for you is the same. I’ve looked back at some of my blog anniversary posts over the years and I am reminded why I overshare and document my life.


Seeing photos from 2011 and first day of schools makes me feel confident that I don’t see an end to blogging anytime soon. So you if you decide to journey back down memory lane with me just remember, my photography wasn’t too good back then, I’ve transferred platforms a few times so there are some missing photos etc. but the words are still there, and I have changed a lot in these past 6 years!!
