Happy Thursday Y'all! My Glittery Heart is celebrating EIGHT years of blogging today!! 

I thought it would be fun to share my top E I G H T post from 2023...

1. All Time Amazon Favorites. We sure do love a good Prime Post. 

2. Prime Purchases | December 2022.  What did we do before Amazon?? 

3. What's Up Wednesday | January 2023. I sure do miss these post? 

4. Our Week with Watching Brett at Area, Lunch all by myself, and Taylor Swift. I think this recap had more to do with Taylor Swift in the name. Ha 

5. A Few Things I am Loving.  Still loving most of these items. 

6. Prime Purchases | October 2023. Amazon Post are always my favorite too. 

8. Our Week with 4th of July, A Pool Date, and A Date Night. One of my favorite weeks of 2023. 

8 Reasons I Continue to Blog... (the first 7 are from last year and still hold true.) 

1. I love preserving my families memories on this little space.

2. I love the friendships I have made from blogging.

3. I love sharing products that I love and find helpful.

4. It's still a creative outlet for me.

5. I love helping others. Even if it is just sharing our everyday life, it may help someone else in their everyday routine. 

6. I love being inspired from other bloggers. I love seeing their everyday lives, their favorites on Fridays, their Prime Purchases, their vacations, etc. Y'all make me what to be better for myself. 

7. Because there are still good people in this world and they show up for every blog post to leave comments. THANK YOU! 

8. I share my everyday life. There are very few things that I don't share in this space because of confidentiality. For the most part, what you see is what you get from me on this space. Just ask LA! 

8 Things I have Learned from Blogging... (the first 7 are from last year and still hold true.) 

1. Blogging is very time consuming 😉from planning content, photographing content, to writing content. It takes a lot of time.

2. Readers enjoy everyday real life experiences over all the sponsored post. Now, don't get me wrong I love the income of a sponsored post but I don't want my entire blog to be built around that.

3. It's hard work to get noticed in the "blog world" just getting readers is a full time job but one I am working hard on because I love the interaction.

4. Everyday I question if I should just "throw in the towel" and then I will get the sweetest comment and remember why I started this little space in the first place!

5. It's ok to take breaks. It's ok to step away for a bit and then come back when you are ready. 

I can't thank y'all enough for reading this little space of mine and watching my family grow! 

6. I have learned new skills. I have learned how to create graphics, embed videos, add links, website hosting. Things I would never have learned if I didn't start this little space. 

7. I get out what I put into this little space. 

8. I have gotten more page views from link ups then I thought I did. Linking up for Prime Purchases, What's Up Wednesdays, and Let's Look guided a lot of my traffic last year. 

Cheers to year 7! Can't wait to watch this little space GROW!!
