Ten Years of Blogging | Lovely Whatsoevers Turns Three!

Today, Lovely Whatsoevers turns three! *throws confetti*

It’s a little hard to believe that I’ve been blogging for a decade! I wanted to do something a little different and fun to celebrate, so I went on a treasure hunt.

Some treasure is only found in the Comic Sans archives
of one’s old blogs...

I did not expect to find my very first blog post, however. So behold! An internet snapshot of thirteen-year-old Jameson:

Hi & Welcome To My Blog!
Hi and welcome to [my blog]! I guess since this is my first entry I should tell a little bit about the things I like. I like reading, writing in my journal, watching tv and hangin' out with my friends. I'm also a huge fan of POTC & LOTR too. I guess you could tell that though by looking at the name of my blog, my icon(can you guess who my fave character is?) and the POTC:AWE trailer I've posted. I think POTC:AWE is gonna be awesome judging by the trailer. Well, hope you enjoyed reading my first entry and hope you enjoy the POTC trailer if you're a fan.  Later! ~Baby Girl

(Note: The background of my blog was a picture of the Black Pearl, my profile icon was Will Turner, and I was, obviously, at the height of my Pirates of the Caribbean obsession. I also wasn’t allowed to use my real name on the internet at the time, so I used one of my nicknames instead.)

So, yeah. I think there’s been some improvement in my blogging skills over the years. :)

I’ve made some really great friends through blogging, and had a fun way of chronicling life as a way to connect with others. It’s interesting to look back and see just how much my own blogging style has shifted over time, as well as the changes in blogging itself! Things are rather different than they were in 2007…

But I’m not only waxing nostalgic here today—I’m also having a little giveaway!

My apologies for the weird colors in the photo.
The journals really are green and orange! :)

  1. Congrats! *throws confetti and chocolate* Oh wait...I shouldn't ~throw~ the chocolate, that's a present. Haha.

    Happy blogaversary! 10 years? That's impressive! I don't think I remember how long I've been blogging for...there have been so many blogs over the years! As for my favorite part of blogging, definitely getting to "meet" new people through it! I hope you have another excellent 10 years of blogging! <3

  2. AAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY!!!! *throws confetti and glitter everywhere* You've been blogging for a DECADE??? :O JAMESON. THAT IS EPIC. And how special LW is turning 3. ^_^ I love how our blogoversaries land on the same month, and nearly the same day! Too fun!

    Your first ever blog post is so cute. XD I'm totally loving the POTC obsession. That's too great!

    EEP. Those notebooks you're giving away are adorable. This is too fun! What's my favorite thing about blogging? Goodness. There are so many great things! One of my top favorite things is definitely the community and making such wonderful blogging buddies. I can't imagine life now without all my blogging friends! My other favorite thing is just being able to have a space to let all my thoughts run free. It's really freeing to be able to let loose all the many, many things that pop in my head, and therapeutic at that. I just love blogging!

    Happy blogoversary again! I cannot wait for many, many more years of delightful Jameson posts. ^_^

  3. Yay! Congrats on three years for this blog and tens years overall! That's quite an achievement. And you've definitely come far with writing and blogging, so awesome!

    My favorite thing about blogging is that it's just a place where you can write whatever and sometimes people read it, sometimes they don't, but it doesn't matter because it's a personalized space on the internet just for you.

  4. Congrats!! Doesn't ever fail to bring back good memories when you stumble upon something from the past like that, eh? That's adorable! Happy Bday to LW!!!

    I LOVE blogging and try to every week. But what I enjoy most is WRITING. About anything! I just love to write and blogging seems to be a good outlet. :]

    What a cute giveaway! Thanks for sharing, dearie. Have a lovely week!


    Hee your first blogpost is the adorablest omw.

    Hmm...favorite thing about blogging? Getting to rant everywhere and forcing everyone to watch (since hey, it's their own will to read). :P Also all the awesome people I get to 'meet' and the books I get 'forced' to read.

  6. HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY! *confetti and cupcakes for you* Wow, 10 years is AMAZING! :O That's so awesome! Your first post is so cute and I love your Pirates obsession. XD (Will Turner's the best, yes. ;)) My favorite thing about blogging... goodness, I don't know! I just love getting to post things and see them all shiny on my blog and get to talk with other people about stuff in comments. :) Best wishes for another decade of awesome blogging!!

  7. Happy blogoversary, Jameson! And WHOA, I think you're the only blogger I know who has been blogging for TEN YEARS - gracious! That's seems like a wonderfully long time to me ;). Congratulations! I'm looking forward to another year of Jameson-posts <3 <3 <3.
