2 Years of Blogging

Today marks two full years of blogging for me. Blogging has been a great outlet for me throughout college.  It has given me the creativity that college often times doesn't have.  It allows me to express myself while also developing my writing skills. Each day I learn something new about how to become a better blogger and develop The Shore Life According to M into a bigger/better blog than it was the day before. 

Last year I set some goals for year 2 of blogging:
One: Host a blog giveaway
I have yet to do this.  Hopefully during year three I can accomplish this.
Two: Participate in more link ups
I participated in several link ups this year.  The thing I like about link ups is that they are great for inspiration and networking with other bloggers. 
Three: Reach 350 posts
This past year, blogging took a bit of a back burner as life got busier.  Needless to say I only reached 256 published posts. 
Four: Connect with more bloggers
I've definitely become closer with Lindsey and Miss ALK, but I would still love to connect with more bloggers. 
Five: Plan posts ahead of time
I definitely did not do this, but this month I have become much better about this.  This is definitely a year three goal. 

Since I only achieved two of the five goals I set, I have decided to keep the same goals for year two.  The only difference will be that I will actually achieve them this year. 

Year 3:
In the upcoming year I intend to spend more time working on this little blog of mine.  I will plan posts out ahead of time, allowing for more time to add pictures and proofread.  Like anything the more advanced planning that is done the better the results will be.  I'm looking forward to dedicating more time to The Shore Life According to M and seeing where it takes me. Here's to another year of blogging!



  1. Congrats to two years! I look forward to reading more in the upcoming year.

  2. Congrats lady! These are big milestones. Good luck with your goals too! I have such a hard time planning my posts ahead.
