GETTING TO KNOW YOU, GETTING TO KNOW ALL ABOUT YOU

 


Hi, friends!

Hope you’re all doing well! I’m sorry I’ve been MIA lately, it’s been a pretty hectic and busy couple of weeks at work (working almost 3 and a half weeks straight and being a walking zombie does not mix well with blogging!) and life has been pretty interesting to say, that I needed sometime to myself – to adjust, cope, catch up on some sleep and see my loved ones. I’ve been working on a few blog series for the blog – “Working in Sports” and Career posts to Toronto travel guides etc., I am in the editing process and will get that published once they are good to go!

Before I get into the actual post, I just wanted to thank everyone for reading A Life She Loved! It means SOOOO much to me! Thank you to my loved ones for their love and support, and thank you to you guys, my new internet friends, for joining me in this new adventure! I’m still reading some of the messages people have sent in (don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about you!) and it warms my heart to know that people love the blog! That means so much to me! I have gotten a few messages from you guys who said they wanted to start their own blog, go for it! It’s a very fulfilling experience, and you learn so much from it! For those that did ask about blogging tips, I am not an expert myself, and I am still learning through blog #2, but I will definitely be doing a “blogging tips and tricks” posts series in the future – stay tuned! Also, I got a few questions asking about the quotes I post on snapchat (@lifesheloved) or Instagram stories (@harmonicagellerbing), I will make a separate post for that. It makes me happy that some of you guys like the inspiration stuff, and I will definitely post that more often!
