2 Years of A Little Bit of Sunshine

Hello everyone! 2 years. 2 yEaRs. Can you believe it? I can't!



2 years ago on February 5th, 2014, I published my first post, not knowing where I was going or if I was even going to keep this blog. I did. and it was one of the best things I've ever done.

Back then, I was Adventures of a Wonder Kid. A 9 year old girl, a 5th grader, trying to make her voice. I found Kids' Blog Club, did a guest post and it all went good from there.

I met new friends, experimented with new things, improved my writing and grew my blog! I learned how to computer code and designed my own blog!

Then I changed it to My Amazing Life Being 10, as I was 10 years old at the time. And my blog grew even more! I started using a proper camera, and put more time into my posts and blogging.

1 year of blogging came along, with my 40 followers in hand I switched to A Little Bit of Sunshine and that's when I got serious about blogging. I knew it was something I loved to do and would work to not give it up.

A couple months later I hit 100 followers, one of the biggest milestones in my blogging career.  It was amazing and I remember how wowed I felt.

Now I'm sitting here, 2 years later, and 2 years (almost 3 ;0) older, writing my two year blogiversary post. And wow, in 2014, I couldn't even dream about getting 132 followers, or getting 100 pageviews, MUCH less 62,000. But here I am. And it's thanks to you guys.

A lot of people in our blogging world kept me going, and it would take the whole post to list them all. But if you've ever commented, read a post, or even if I've commented on your blog, you are part of this list for sure :D

Thank you for joining me on this wild ride, and I hope you'll still be here for the third year. In this year of blogging, I really hope to expand my blog and help it grow even more, there's still a long way to go :)

Anyway, in honor of this occasion, I'm having a little 'challenge' ;)

We all love Harry Potter. So in honor, starting Sunday, I'm dedicating an ENTIRE week to Harry Potter! Next post, you all will be sorted into your houses and for the whole week, I'm posting stuff relating to Harry Potter and in each post will be a challenge where you can earn 'points' for your House. It's really simple and I think it's going to be loads of fun. I'm super excited to get this started! I'm sure you guys will have lots of fun too :D

But here's to another year of A Little Bit of Sunshine, I hope it keeps going, and I hope all of your blogs do too :)

Thanks for reading,
Noor

  17. TWO YEARS? THAT IS SO, SO, SO EXCITING. *flails for you* I've ALMOST been blogging for 1 1/2 years now (in a few months) which is crazy to think about. Good for you for sticking to it! :D

    Also, the Harry Potter thing sounds like so much fun. :D

  18. Congratulations, Noor! I absolutely adore your blog and I celebrate the fact that it has been around for two years. Can't wait for this Harry Potter thing, it sounds so exciting! (I'm a Gryffindor just to let you know but I think every house is beautiful and valuable and we should honor them equally ok bye)

  19. Kudos to you, Noor! I've been a loyal subscriber for a few months, reading everyone of your posts, and it's true, you've obviously put so much thought into your posts - it's evident just in how popular your blog has become in our blogging community :) Haha Potterheads all the way but also yes, I'm a Gryffindor, just for the record. If I end up with some descendant of Malfoy or something in Slytherin I will NOT be a happy camper... Haha I'm just kidding but congrats again and I love the idea! xx

    Shine on,
