I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I started this blog. Sure I was a bad blogger at first, only posting whenever I wasn’t too lazy, but that was basically because I didn’t have anything to write about! Now that I’ve been home for over 4 months I’ve recently restarted blogging here again and it’s great. I really fell in love with it again and I’ll definitely do my best to keep up with all the personal pieces (I have to keep up this pregnancy diary for BG2 & post family memories of course!), reviews, giveaways, & whatever else pops into my head. It also started out as just a regular blog that I thought no one would read, I originally separated all my blogs so my Mommy Blog was at a different website, but I joined it all together and decided to build on this original one and I couldn’t be happier.
Since I started this blog up again in October, I’ve joined great communities such as BloggyMoms.com, Theta Mom, and TwitterMoms.com. I’ve also increased my GFC following and I can’t believe it’s over 200 strong now & growing, I couldn’t be more happy and I only hope my readers get something special out of each of my posts. I love all the comments I receive everyday and I’m even more happy that my subscribers list is slowly but surely growing!
When I first started this blog, I just named it Vi3tI3abe, which is “Vietbabe”, which 3’s for E’s & the B is spelled with an I & a 3 (it was a thing back in the day with people I knew, haha) and it worked for me but then I figured I should change it to make it more people-friendly and give the blog some kind of substance so I changed it to Confessions of a Vi3tBabe because that’s basically what the blog is about. I know the whole “Confessions of a…” is a tired cliche, but after hearing it over and over and trying out other names, I like this the best and it stuck. Also, the design of the blog is pretty generic and I know it’s a template that probably many other bloggers out there use, but I’m quite the frugal gal, so I wasn’t really up to paying for a custom blog design, at least not at first. I suppose I will eventually get a custom made blog design as things here progress and I find my niche. I’m hoping I won’t hate my blog name or this template too soon later on since I do tend to change my mind easily, but we’ll see what the future holds.
Now for the BEST part…
