I honestly can’t believe it, but today marks my blogging one year anniversary! On this day last year, I started travisthegrimm.wordpress.com. I wrote my first post, which can be viewed here, talking about starting my blog and how The Clone Wars had been cancelled. I can’t believe, one year ago today, that I was writing about The Clone Wars being cancelled. Fast forward a year and we finally got our sixth and final season. Crazy!

TTG1YEAR

I began writing everyday! I’ve kept this up pretty good except a few weeks here and there where I was sucked in by Netflix. I honestly didn’t know if I’d keep up blogging. I just started it to start! I needed an outlet to share all my favorite things. This past year has been the best year of my life. HANDS DOWN. I got to cover HeroesCon, Dragon*Con, Charlotte MiniCon, go to my very first San Diego Comic Con, and so much more! I can’t believe what luck I’ve had with this past year. Blogging has brought me nothing but joy! Yes, sometimes it can get stressful especially when you try to blog every single day, but it’s so much fun! Throughout my first year of blogging, I also learned A LOT about WordPress. Whether it be designing, domains, header sizes, you name it, I’ve tried to become fluent in it. I think my next step will be moving up to WordPress.org.

My blog has changed SO much since I first started! My design actually looks OK. Before, it was plain and boring, but now it kinda feels like a comic book. I also started interviewing people!Β That was such a big step for me! I’m so glad I took it though. I’ve interviewed the most amazing people!

I also have made a ton of new friends thanks to this here blog (plus Twitter)! My life wouldn’t have nearly as enough excitement if it wasn’t for them. Some I’ve only talked to online, while others I met during SDCC 2013. Then you have that one friend who you met because of Tom Hiddleston and Nerd HQ. πŸ˜‰

  1. Oh, crud, I forgot to mention the song….with good reason….because *gasp* I haven’t seen Frozen. Which is exactly why I need to win it. πŸ™‚

  2. Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary. My favourite song is do you want to build a snow man but it always makes me cry. πŸ™‚

  3. Congrats on your one year anniversary! Our website’s one year anniversary is also coming up in a couple of days! I actually have not seen Frozen yet, though I have been wanting to, so I cannot exactly pick a favorite song. In fact, I have been avoiding all those “Let It Go” covers and parodies because I want to see the movie first!

  4. Congratulations on your one year anniversary!! May many more blessings follow you in the future!:) my favorite song from Frozen is the For The First Time In Forever (reprise) where Elsa sings in the castle. So much emotion, it gets me to tears every time…

  5. Congrats! My favorite song would have to be Let it Go <33 so many songs to choose from they are all amazing πŸ™‚
