Me in the Middle of My Third Year Anniversary

An Introduction

That’s Me in the Middle with my two brothers, J. and R.  I’m the official middle child in my family of five siblings.  This is the story of my journey in the middle of my awesome and challenging life and you can read more by going to my “About” page”.

~ And that was the beginning ~



Three years later and I’m amazed at how much satisfaction I’ve gotten from blogging and how much my posts have expanded into wonderful experiences and meeting wonderful bloggers.

My initial intention was to put my life story down in writing, the good and the bad, and from it to see all the life lessons along the way.  I did that!  I wrote and I wrote and I wrote until I had Eight Chapters.

One Year Anniversary

What a Difference a Year Makes (Here)

Looking over the first year really gave me confidence.  One of the major influences in making the transition from Pages to Blog was the A to Z Challenge 2016.  I used it as a way to bring together all the lessons learned through my life.  It was a real purging and letting go of the past.  So, what a difference a year makes!

And then my blogging became a once a week commitment for the 2nd and 3rd year.  Along with following my favorites on WordPress Reader, I also took on mini-challenges.  A few of those challenges are included here:

  3. While my blogging journey began in 2009, my efforts were sporadic. I’m hopeful this new midlife direction will help me maintain a consistent writing/sharing life. I do love this community!

    • I agree Molly! This #MLSTL community has really helped me to focus on what I want my posts to say that will uplift and support those in Midlife and Beyond. 🙂


  4. Congratulations on three years of blogging. I will celebrate three years in Jan. I go back and forth as to if I want to continue with blogging but then an idea on something I want to write about comes to mind so I write.

  5. Hi Mary Lou, I have been blogging for 3.5 years and like you I never thought it would be as enjoyable as it is. I love the connections with readers and other bloggers and it has proven to me that I can be creative. I love the photo of you and your brothers, I’m a middle child as well and I now know where your blog name came from. Congratulations and thank you for sharing your anniversary with us at #MLSTL. have a lovely week. 🙂

  6. Hi Mary Lou – congratulations on 3 years of blogging – I’m fast heading towards 4 years and the time seems to have flown by! Over 700 posts and still going – but I think I’ll be cutting back to one post a week next year to give myself some head space and room to do other things. Thanks so much for mentioning #MLSTL and I’ve shared this on my SM xx
