I can hardly believe I’m saying this, but today is my six year blog anniversary!
To celebrate, I think I’ll eat A.Cookie (har har).
Last year on my five year I had a lot to say about the path my blog had taken up to that point, but it’s pretty amazing how much things ramped up in the year that has gone by since then!
This year, participating in blogger events like Vegan MoFo and Virtual Vegan Potluck really got me to step out of my comfort zone and start interacting more with the incredible and vast community out there. I discovered so many new blogs and friends (just check out the size of that list in the righthand toolbar!) and this really helped to keep me motivated to post regularly (something with which I had majorly struggled in the past).
I finally found the confidence to create and post some of my own recipes (and now have enough of them [though still a very modest amount!] to share on their own page). I hosted my first (and second and third!) giveaway. I had a guest blogger. I got awesome free stuff to review (woo hoo!).

I also began to branch out past my own little corner of the Internet by contributing blogs at Chic Vegan. I created a Facebook page and Instagram account, and became much more active on Twitter.

AND I finally purchased my domain name acookinthemaking.com!!!
Needless to say, I am very excited about everything that has happened in the last year and want to say thanks to all the awesome bloggers and other visitors who make this such a fun thing to do 🙂 Here’s to the next six!!
