This week marks a milestone in the life of Joy Unspeakable. It’s been 6 months since the start of my blog! It’s been a long journey to get to where we are today, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been worth it.
There are so many things that go into running a blog. Planning, writing, designing, commenting, sharing, social media, interacting with the readers and community… the list goes on (and on!). Although it can be frustrating at times, it’s SO worth it in the end.
In honor of 6 months, let’s take a look at some statistics, give some shout outs, and share some memories!
