Musings of an Elf’s 6th Birthday!



Why yes, my Monday post is a day late. But that was on purpose becaaause…


TODAY IS MY 6 YEAR BLOGOVERSARY!!!


Yep! On March 14th, 2011, I published the first post here on Musings of an Elf, and thus my blogging obsession began.


It’s a bit surreal to realize I’ve been blogging for 6 full years. THAT’S A LONG TIME. But it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long. Honestly, in my head, this blog is still a little baby blog and I’m an amateur blogger. And yet, on the other hand, I can’t imagine a time I wasn’t blogging. Blogging is such an integral part of my life now, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.


This year I had hoped to actually do something special for my blogoversary since I never have before. Which is shameful! Buuuut I didn’t even remember my anniversary was coming up until the beginning of March, and my brain has been so scattered, I didn’t feel equipped, or in the right mentality, to come up with something fun. ONE OF THESE DAYS, GUYS. I’ve been meaning to do a giveaway or party or something on my blogging anniversary since my first one AND I STILL HAVEN’T. I’ve just got a lot going on in life right now occupying my mind (all good things, do not fear) and was scared to commit to a giveaway or something. So, as I tell myself every year, maybe next year… This year you’ll just have to put up with some reminiscing. *cackles*



I first decided to start a blog when I was getting very serious about writing. I’ve been writing since I was 9, but I didn’t really get serious about it until my first NaNoWriMo in 2010. After that amazing experience, I knew for a fact writing was what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. And thus I jumped into actually learning the craft (which is something I had failed to do before…let’s not talk about my early novels), poking around writing blogs, and actually, *gasp* WRITING. As I saw other writers blogging and talking about the importance of having a platform if one wants to be published, it occurred to me: Hey, I should make a blog!


And thus Musings of an Elf was born.


This blog has come a long, long way since that March day I finally took the plunge and created it. I’ve grown a lot in the past 6 years—in life, in writing, in blogging (thank goodness). In those first couple of years, there was a whole lotta random nonsense posted on this here blog. (Okay, I still totally post random nonsense, but at least it’s a biiit higher quality random nonsense…? Maybe? Perhaps? Anybody?? Ahem.) I also posted extremely irregularly, with loooong amounts of time between posts. It wasn’t until 2013 was about to roll around that I up and made a New Year’s resolution to post every single week, and I’ve stuck to that schedule since. I think a blogging schedule is very important, annnd it’s the only way I’ll ever get around to posting. I gotta have that accountability. *grins*


Once I started posting weekly, I think my content grew in quality as I got the hang of things. I also became way more open about my writing, something I normally hid in the deep recesses of my laptop from all eyes but my own. I mean, if I was building a platform of readers I prooobably needed to actually, ya know, talk about my writing. Originally, this blog was kinda meant to be an ALL THE THINGS blog. Just about life and randomness and anything on my mind. But, slowly but surely, it became a full on writing blog. And that’s when I found my niche. I don’t know why I didn’t see it before. This blog was meant to gain readership, so of course its main focus should be on my writing! Duh, Christine. #Blonde


I think by 2014 I was really finding the type of things I liked to blog about, and the blog grew a lot as well. I had developed the habit of writing a post for every Monday, and settling into the types of posts that suited me and the blog.


Though, I don’t think I really found my niche until just a couple of years ago. And I’m still learning. I don’t think I’ll ever stop. But that’s the thing about writing, you never “make it”. It’s a continuous quest for improvement. But I think that’s a pretty exciting realization. The journey is the fun part, and writing is forever an adventurous journey.



My favorite part about the writing/blogging journey is the community. YOU GUYS. I would have probably given up on this blogging endeavor a long time ago if not for the continuous support and encouragement of all my dear blogging buddies. This circle of bloggers I’ve joined is full of the nicest, most fun, creative, encouraging people I’ve ever known.


I would not be nearly as far along with my writing if not for all of you. I’m blown away every. single. time. when one of you shows enthusiasm and interest in one of my stories. Each and every comment I receive gives me a thrill. I adore reading your brilliant posts and getting to interact with each of you. You all push me to keep going. Sometimes (most of the time…) this writing journey is uphill and tiring and just downright discouraging. But you guys are like a fresh spring of water on that uphill hike, refreshing and refueling me to keep moving forward. Before I started blogging and befriended all my amazing writing/blogging friends, writing was just a hobby. Now it’s my life, and I have all of you to thank for that.


THANK YOU for reading Musings of an Elf.


THANK YOU for putting up with my rambles and nonsense.


THANK YOU for showing interest in my novels and supporting me through this hard journey.


THANK YOU for being YOU. You’re all amazing, talented, beautiful people, and I wish I could give each and every one of you a ginormous hug.

I love you guys! *passes around cake* Here’s to many more years of blogging to come!

  1. OH MY WORD. HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY!!!!

    AAAHHHHH.

    MY CHRISTINE HAS BEEN BLOGGING FOR SIX YEARS?! Whaaaaaat. That is insane! In some ways, it feels like you've been blogging forever--especially in comparison to my one year of blogging. XD But gosh, six years is a loooong time.

    Your blog was honestly one of the first blogs that really made me want to start my own. I found yours from Tracey's blog (way back when it started...almost two years ago now! :O), and I just fell in love with it. (Seriously though, who wouldn't? You're such a sweet, hilarious gal. <3) It was the first blog I followed and the first one I really commented on. I can honestly say that Musings of an Elf changed my life. I realized that I could actually offer something to people through my own blogging platform, and I found endless love and encouragement from you and this amazing circle of bloggers.

    All this to say, I'M SO DARN GRATEFUL FOR YOU AND YOUR BLOG. I love you sooooo much, Christine. You're a constant source of encouragement, and I really feel blessed to know you. <333 I know I don't comment very often anymore (BECAUSE LIFE IS RUDE *glares at it*), but that doesn't mean I love your blog any less. If anything, I love it more every time I read a new post.

    SO HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MUSINGS OF AN ELF. *throws confetti and cake* Here's to another year of frabjous posts! :D

    (By the way, your photos are GORGEOUS. I wuv all the pink. <3)

    1. *whispers* It makes me so happy to think of all the connections between the three of us! <3 And oh my tea, YES, Christine: your photos are incredibly gorgeous. JUST...JUST...THE AESTHETIC. They're so clean and pink and professional looking!

    2. SDKJF:LKSJD:LFJLDSJLKJDF. MARY. I just...I...AAAAHHHHHH!!!! MARY. I LITERALLY HAVE NO WORDS RIGHT NOW. This is one of the sweetest comments I've ever gotten in my LIFE!

      I'm just reading your comment again and again squealing inside and wondering how to even RESPOND. I can't imagine MY nonsensical blog being an inspiration but LSKDJFLKJS:LDJF. THAT'S SO SWEET, MARY. Like...you're trying to bring me to tears right now. Not even joking.
      I am VERY glad you decided to start your own blog because yours is one of my favorites EVERRRRR. And I feel the same way about YOU. Your cheerful, witty demeanor brightens up my world. When you named your blog Sunshine and Scribblings I was thrilled out how PERFECT the title was, because I always saw you as actual sunshine! You just ARE.

      Don't even worry a teeny tiny bit about not always commenting. I'm really, really bad about not commenting to blogs frequently except a choice few. Life just sometimes doesn't allow for it! (It IS rude. >.>) I'm just happy to know you and will forever be grateful that you found my blog so we could become friends.

      THANK YOU SO SO SO SO SO SO SOOOO MUCH, MARY! Seriously, this comment just means the world to me! ALL THE HEARTS FOR YOU. <33333333333333333

      @Tracey - I AGREE. It never ceases to put me in awe how we can make such deep friendships by little incidents such as finding someone on a single blog in the vastness of the internet. It is the BEST.

      @Mary and Tracey - YOU GUYS. I'm so glad you like my pics! THANK YOU!!! I thought pink was fitting since it's my favorite color and the blog used to be pink. XD

  2. I know I have about a month's worth of posts to comment on, but I couldn't NOT pop in and say HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY YOU WONDERFUL HUMAN BEING. I can't believe it's been six years! I wish I remembered what year I started reading Musings of an Elf... Maybe three or four years ago? Anyways, I absolutely LOVE your blog. It's one of my dearest favorites. I look forward to reading your lovely words every Monday (or Tuesday, in this case)! Every time a post appears on my dashboard, I either rush to read it instantly, or mentally file it away as something to do as soon as I have five minutes to spare. ^_^

    I love how blogging has been instrumental in your growth as a person and as a writer! (I feel the same about my own blogging.) I can't wait to see where the coming years take you--it'll be a grand adventure.

    Happy blogoversary once more! You and your blog are a ray of sunshine! I look forward to many more years of elvish musings! <333333

    2. *FLAILS* THANK YOU TRACEY!!!!! YOU are the wonderfullest human being! <333

      3 or 4 years sounds about right! I know we REALLY started getting to know each other when you beta-read the Burning Thorns novella and that was in 2014, but it seems like you were following my blog a little before that? So maybe early 2014? Lol! I don't know, somewhere around there. XD

      GAH. Giiiirl! That is the nicest thing! I am the EXACT same way about your blog. Every time I see a new post of yours on my dashboard I'm like, "OH. TRACEY POST. MUST READ NOW." I love your posts so very muuuuch!

      Blogging is just an amazing growing experience, it really is. Yes, it can be stressful, but the benefits and joy and wonderful community of it waaaaay outweigh the stress. I've never regretting starting this blog.

      THANK YOU, TRACEY. You are such a blessing to me! *HUGGLES* <3333333

      (*GASP* I have never, ever thought about how it's on Pi Day! :O Oh my goodness, that is so cool! HOW HAVE I GONE 6 YEARS WITHOUT REALIZING THIS???)

  3. OH MY GOOD GRACIOUS, HOW DID I NOT KNOW IT WAS YOUR BLOGOVERSARY TODAY?! *tosses confetti everywhere* And WHOA, six years? O.O I can barely even comprehend that! My word, six years seems like a LONG LONG time to this baby blogger who's only been doing it for six MONTHS xD.

    When I started really reading writing blogs, yours was one of the first I found (and LOVED) so THANK YOU, THANK YOU for starting, Christine! I always LOVE reading your ramblings - whether they're writer-ly or not! <3 <3 <3 You're one of the sweetest bloggers out there, and needless to say, I'm always excited for Mondays because I GET LAURI-POSTS xD. Even if I don't comment as much as I used to (*smacks life which somehow got busier as I got older*) I always read and adore your posts. (Also, your stories. YOUR STORIES ARE AMAZING BUNDLES OF EPICNESS WHICH MAKE ME GRIN JUST THINKING ABOUT THEM. I can't wait until they're published and I can wildly promote them and pet them and ALL THE THINGS! xD)

    BASICALLY I'm in awe that your blog is six and HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MUSING OF AN ELF! I'm excited to see more beautiful Lauri posts <3 <3 <3 <3. YOU'RE THE BEST, GIRL *all the hugs*. You always bring a little sparkle to my day with your posts ;). LOVE YOU <3 <3.

    1. HEY *I* ALMOST FORGOT IT WAS MY ANNIVERSARY SO THAT'S OKAY. And meeeeeep. THANK YOU, SAVANNAH. I know, right? o.o It kind of hurts my brain to think I've been blogging that long. I so vividly remember my early blogging days. It's just WEIRD it's been 6 years now.
      GIRL. It blows my mind you haven't been blogging long, because your blog is SO spectacular and professional and just just...I LOVE IT. I wish I had the blogging skills you do in my early days! My old posts make me shudder...

      Mine was one of the first? I don't think I knew that! AAAAHHHH. HOW COOL! Oh man, Savannah, I don't even know what to say to all of this. It thrills me to hear you enjoy all my ramblings! And what you said about my stories. AAAAAHHHHHHH! YOU'RE GOING TO KILL ME FROM TOO MUCH HAPPINESS. (Also, life does NOT always allow for commenting and THAT IS OKAY. It definitely gets busier the older we get. o.o)

      SAVANNAH. I don't know what else to do but scream your name. JUST...YOUR COMMENT. IT HAS RENDERED ME SPEECHLESS. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! Love you, too! *HUGS*

  4. AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY, MY DEAREST LAURI, TO MUSINGS OF AN ELF!!! :D I love this blog so much and I've so enjoyed, over the last... erm... 5 or so years? getting to see how it's grown and changed and settled into the dear and fun thing it is now! :D I love how you're finding your niche! I don't think we ever really FIND it and stop there because ALWAYS CHANGING AND GROWING which is a good thing! Butbutbut I've spent so many happy times reading your blog and I'm so excited for you!!! ^_^ Happiest of blogoversaries to you! *all the cheesecake and confetti* I hope you have many more exciting years of blogging ahead!

YOU deserve a ton of credit for this blog, because you always encourage me to keep at it and lift me up so much with all your kind words and keep me accountable. Not to mention inspire me with YOUR superbly amazing blogging skills. YOU'RE JUST THE BEST.

      I agree! I don't think we CAN have a totally specific niche. Like you said, it's always changing and growing, which is definitely a good thing! The writing life would be boring if there was a certain destination we all just stop on and couldn't go any further!

      MEEP. You're just the sweetest! *happily devours cheesecake* THANK YOU AGAIN!!! AGH. You make me smile so much! <333333333
