10 Years of Blogging

a snowy day in spring

Ten years ago today... this was my very first blog post.  Boy have I come a long way, lol!  I had just bought my first dslr camera and I wanted to share my pictures.  So I started my blog 'Ramblings From A Grateful Heart'.  Actually back then, blog titles weren't needed.  It was just pictures I took with a catchy (ha!) caption.  I started getting a little braver and shared more... to the point of me when you meet me in real life.  So I named my blog.  Yes, it's true.  I am a rambler.  Not that I need to hear myself talk, I actually don't like that.  It's just that I always have a lot to say.  It's when I'm quiet that you better watch out, lol!  So I spent years blogging about my family and life in general.

Then in 2010, I discovered the prim blog community and really fell in love with blogging!  So I started a new blog called 'Berry Homespun Primitives'.  I met some incredible women and we all shared the same love of primitives.  My family couldn't (and still can't) understand how I had so many online friends that I've never met.  Even though a lot has changed in the prim blog community, I still think about my old prim friends and wonder how they are doing.  
And even I have changed.

Last year, I made a new business venture move and started yet another blog.  Which brings us current with 'A Vintage Journey'.  A lot has changed in my own personal life with kids growing up, and with me having a seasonal job... I am now able to get back to "me" and doing what I love to do.  In this new season of my life, it is a new journey for me.  What better time to start anew, fresh; right?  It's just so weird to start over again with very few followers, lol!  But we always have to start somewhere.

So, for those of you who have befriended me in the past ten years, THANK YOU for being a friend and thank you for sticking with me  =]   I'm excited to see where this new journey takes me and looking forward to making many more new friends along the way.

~ Enjoy your journey ~


  1. Hi Angie, so lovely to catch up with your blog and see what you are up to! Last time was on Berry Homespun Primitives :) I haven't blogged for nearly 3 years and am just getting back into it, I loved meeting online friends too and have missed it! Congratulations on your 10 years blogging, here's to many more! Warmest wishes, Charlotte xx

  2. Hi, I stumbled on your blog and I'm so glad I did. I read this blog entry and I loved it. I feel like I really got to know you just from this post. I'm also on a journey. I'm in my late 20's, married and have an almost 3 year old,finishing up my master's degree in health care and this year I've decided to take myself on a self discovery, self awareness journey and blog about inspirational things that I've learned this year so far. It's been a hard couple of years, and I really wanted to be happy this year and get to know myself again. I will leave my blog link here if you want to go check it out. Great post :)


Thanks for stopping by for a visit ~
