LET’S CELEBRATE! // JU is 1 Year Old #ju1year


Today marks a special day. Today marks a milestone. Today is Joy Unspeakable’s 1 year blogiversary!

One year ago today, this blog was born. It was the dawning of a new age. And thus…oops, am I starting to sound like… a fantasy author? Yep, heh. It’s the jet lag, right?!*

Seriously though, It’s crazy how far this blog has come from June 8th, 2017 — as you can see from my first cringe-worthy post to now. You may ask me, “what is the biggest thing you’ve learned through blogging?” To that I’ll answer with one phrase: Be Real.

Before we start, please remember that this post isn’t a way to brag about anything. It’s simply a way of visiting the past and also looking forward to the future. I’m extremely thankful to everyone who has helped me through this journey. Let’s do this thing, guys!

Reminder: it’s not all about stats. It’s not about how many views you get or how many followers you have. It’s about the people you reach and change the lives of. Because when your life goal is to glorify your King, none of the stats matter. Please remember that.

thank you

To those of you who have been with me from the beginning — thank you. To those who are stopping by for the first time — thank you. To those of you who have helped me along the way — thank you. To those of you who have left a comment or a follow — thank you. To those of you who have liked a post — thank you.

q & a

The way things worked out, I didn’t have time to plan or create a giveaway of any sort. Seeing as question and answers are fun, I’m doing another. And soooo I’m blaming jet lag …but whether it was that or not… I (accidentally?) deleted the answers to the first q&a I sent out to you guys in my last post. 😳 I hate to do this to you guys, but I have to. If you already asked questions, they will not be there, so please re-send them. Thank you for bearing with me πŸ˜‰

This concludes today’s post. Thank you so so so much for reading and supporting my blog. Your support means everything, and I wouldn’t be here without you. Your comments, your emails, and your views are what keeps me going. So here’s to year two, my friends!Β πŸ’–


When did you start reading my blog, and what made you do so?


*Apologies on the late post, we woke up at 4 AM today to catch our flight home from (an amazing) vacation. I’ve been up for 13 hrs and it’s only mid afternoon here. And nope, I’m not yet in the normal flow of things… the 2 hr time difference plus the thrown off eating and sleeping schedules are taking their toll. πŸ˜‚Β So, if there are any errors in today’s post, my apologies!
