2 Year Blog-Aversary!

Today is my two Year Blog-Aversary!
www.godkinphoto.com
Quite a lot has happened since I started "Saying 'I do'" two years ago. For one...I got married...obviously. But it's crazy to me the road that has led me here. I have blogged for Theknot.com, Get Married's Blogger Brides, and Weddzilla. Former Editor-in-Chief of the Weddzilla blog, Heather Walrath, asked me along for her interview with Blog Talk Radio, Our Save-the-dates were featured on Weddingoftheseason.com, as well as on Weddingbee.com's "Bio of the Week". I have over 100 followers, and 150 subscribers...a far cry from my initial reader which was, well...mom. I've done a few giveaways, have recapped 7 other weddings we've been to (and I have 5 more coming up next year!) I've met fabulous bloggers who are just as into weddings and planning their weddings as I am, and have build up quite a community of over 100 brides on my Blogging Brides page. What started as an outlet to share my wedding planning with my parents in Pennsylvania grew into so much more.

So where am I going from here? Blogging has slowed for the summer, but I swear I'm still here talking away about weddings and everything that comes with them. I have over 35 wedding recaps that I'm currently working on so get ready! Between recapping my own wedding and all the other weddings we have coming up...I have quite a lot of material that I still wish to share. I'm sure I'll pepper in some newlywed things here and there, and we'll see where things go in the next year. But for now, I'm here still loving weddings and everything that goes with them, and still eager to write about them!
Yay Weddings!

Tomorrow I have an AMAZING Giveaway from Mixbook.com in honor of the blog's birthday. Please be sure to visit back and enter to win!

Also: I got our pictures and now wedding recaps start on MONDAY!

Happy blog-aversary, Laura! I also never imagined when I started Bicoastal Bride how much blogging would honestly change my life for the better, opening the door to some amazing friendships and opportunities. I'm super excited about getting back with the swing of things on my new blog, and can't wait to read your recaps!

Happy Blogger-versary!!!! What a ride these 2 years! Congrats on all of your successes! I wish you many more to come! Bring on the recaps!

Happy 2 years! :) So exciting!

Thanks for all your sweet comments on my recaps! As for the "saw 'em off," here's the story. Matt & I both graduated from Texas A&M and our fight song (or as we call it the War Hymn) centers around our rivalry with University of Texas. Since their mascot is the longhorn, we say we're sawing their horns off. Hope that makes since! :P

Looking forward to reading the rest of your recaps! Hope you are doing well and still enjoying being a newlywed!
