Fearless Creative: One Year Later

Hello wonderful readers!

First of all, I just want to say THANK YOU to each and every one of you for being here. Some of you I know IRL (in real life), some of you I don’t, but all of you mean the world to me. When I started this blog, I had no clue what I was doing – let’s face it, I still don’t – and while I hoped people would read it, I didn’t really expect it. But here I am, and here you are, and I hope you’re enjoying this as much as I am.

I’m nearing my 1 year blogiversary in a couple weeks (did I just make up a word??), which is insane and wonderful and terrifying all at the same time. I kinda feel like I’m starting to get the hang of this whole blogging thing – or at least, the writing part of it. A year ago I was worried I wouldn’t have enough to say. Now I’m worried I’ll have too much to say, and that I’ll overwhelm you with posts.

On that note….

Last month I decided to try branching out the blog to include a beauty blog (Fearless Creative Beauty) because I didn’t want to bog this blog down with product reviews. Sigh. It was a good idea – but frankly….I just don’t have the energy to keep up with two blogs. Or grow two blogs. So….I’m not going to shut it down just yet, but I have a feeling FCB isn’t going to go anywhere. I’m good with that. Truthfully I should have given it more thought before trying it. In a way, too, it felt a little….dishonest? I’m not sure that’s the right word, but it felt like I was censoring myself here – and that’s┬ákind of not the point of my whole Fearless Creative thing.

So what does that mean?

That means that you’re going to continue to see a hodge-podge of posts, but you’re going to see more of them. I’m going to keep sharing product reviews – some beauty, some not – and subscription boxes and other random stuff I like and think everyone should know about. You’re going to continue to see health and fitness and yoga. Some crafting/DIY. Some food. Some home improvement stuff (that’s been sitting on the back burner FOREVER). Books, music, travel. Probably some ranting. And of course, there will still be the life lesson/introspection/general musings you know and love.

In short, this is my life…and I’m sharing more of it. That’s exciting, no?

I’m not going to set a blogging goal or anything like that, but I will promise that you won’t see new posts more than every couple of days (unless there’s something crazy like the Bugsy’s Box thing that’s time sensitive). Well, except for my Birthday Week. You’ll probably see posts every day that week, because I’m turning 30 and that’s going to be a lot of fun. More on Birthday Week later.

If there’s something you’re curious about, or something you hate hearing about, let me know in the comments below. This is as much for you as it is for me, believe it or not – your feedback is what keeps me writing!


  1. I’m so glad you’re going to continue to post beauty stuff here. I love the randomness of your subject matter and somehow your taking a part away from here would be kind of like only getting part of you. I’m selfish. I want all of you in one place and love the pace of all things happening in your life right here so I can be a part of it! Your blog is wonderful. It always makes me happy even when you’re not. You’re a marvelous writer and a fantabulous blogger. I’m thrilled that you’re so fearless about sharing your life with us! Hugs, Pat

    1. Pat, you have given me the most beautiful compliment. Thank you so much for your encouragement, support, and friendship!
