18DBC #9) Story Behind the Blog

Ever wanted to learn about the story behind my blog? It’s a long one! Well, if you do, then read on!

So, about December 2016 I was like, obsessed with baby names. One person from the baby names thingy had a blog and I checked it out and was intrigued. I started a couple little blogs (never actually posted much on them though). All I can remember is one crafty blog (on Wix). Anyways I then signed up for a WordPress account, and started a baby name blog. That’s why my original username was something like, “babynamelover”. It’s deleted now, but in March 2017 I came across several other blogs and decided to start my own, Anything In The Wonderful Life. I quit posting on it and totally forgot about it until about September, when I got an email that someone followed my blog! From then on, I started posting on it. Then it became Thoughts of a Fangirl, and now Sparks of Ara.

I don’t remember who that follower was, but whoever I was made me start blogging! XD

This was my original, homemade button! And yes, I forgot the ‘r’ in wonderful.

This was my Thoughts of a Fangirl header, I really like it. πŸ˜€

I had lots of Sparks of Ara headers, and the one below is probably a favorite of mine:

Another one would have to be this one…

And obviously, I adore the one I’ve got as well. Which is your favorite of the Sparks of Ara headers I showed you?

So what do you think of my crazy story? How did you end up blogging?

  1. One of my first blogs was a craft blog, too! πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ I started blogging because I joined a homeschool website in 2010 called HomeschoolBloggers, and from there, I never stopped blogging. haha I’ve had so many different blogs over the years!

    1. Haha that’s so cool! I have too, but most of them I never blogged on regularly. My best friend and I did have a blog at one point, it wasn’t on wordpress, it was Edu blogs, and we made it all about our life! We did post for a couple weeks, it was flooded with posts but stopped after that. πŸ˜€


    1. Thanks Rhi! I think I do too, I’ll probably switch back to that, as it had to have nbeen my favorite and it looked more put-together. πŸ˜€
      I started this blog in March 2017, the 19th I think, so my 2nd blogiversary is coming up! Well not really but it’s soon I guess?
      Thanks for reading!


  2. I like baby names too. Though when someone grows up, it is no longer a ‘baby’ name. I love finding names for my story characters.πŸŒΈβ˜€οΈπŸŒΈ A writer’s hobby.🌻
