My Life as a Blogger

My first foray into the world of online publishing was back in 2000. A high school friend with mad computer skillz had his own website and he gave me a message board which was housed on it, Kate’s Fabulous Fashion Forum. I remember how excited I would get each night as I wrote the next day’s post. Only a handful of people even knew about it and the site is not in service anymore.

In 2009, I created a blogger account and titled my blog “Small Town, Big Dreams.” My big dreams never became reality and I didn’t write a single post. Finally, late in 2009, I arrived at the new name, Southern Belle Simple. This journey has been an adventure for me…full of learning and meeting wonderful new folks.

Last week I attended the blogger conference Blissdom and it was quite the experience. The best way I can describe it is “Sorority Rush: Grown-up Style.” Like sorority rush, it was hectic, stressful and overwhelming. Also like rush, it ended with some fabulous friendships being made and learning so much about myself and the world of blogging. I would definitely do it again, although next time I’ll know what to do differently.

I want this blog to be amazing. It’s not about having a huge number of fans or followers, although I love you all. I just want SBS to be a bright spot in your day. And if you have ideas or thoughts on how to make it a little brighter, please share them! Your opinion matters here. I have already made a couple of small edits in the hope of improving this community, including adding a program called Disqus to the comment section so that you can reply to specific comments instead of just in a chronological line. I also updated the reader poll if you have a chance to take it.

I thank you for reading and look forward to our next adventure together!

P.S. Nashville’s Channel 4 did a story on Blissdom and here’s a link…you might just see a familiar face!
