BLOGversation: How long have you been blogging for?

My blog was born back in the olden days, July 2008 to be exact. So she’s the ripe old age of 5 years now.

How old is your blog?

    you were the first blog that i followed waaay back when i first started blogging x


  • ArtyKat

    Mine started on LiveJournal in 2003 so it shocks me to know it is over 10 years old! My photo blog is much younger but I’ve only recently started really using it- I only have a few followers since no one really knows about it. It is at if anyone wants to see my Appalachian blog (USA)

  • I started in January 2009.

  • Cara McKee

    Wow! That’s ages. How long was it before you got popular? My blog ( only came into existence in February, and I’ve only been blogging at all since the beginning of the year. I hope I can be as inspirational, inclusive, and friendly as you are, and get better at it!

    In 2005 I had one of those nineMSN ‘spaces’ (anyone remember those?) where I blogged a lot. I remember linking my oh-so-not-techno-savvy grandpa to the photos on there, and he somehow found the blog. He printed about 20 pages of hearfelt spill and read it over a cup of coffee.
    In 2007 I got my first blogger address which was secret, and I only shared with people I trusted.
    In 2011 I fell pregnant and wasn’t coping at all. I truly believe it’s my blog that provided the biggest release and creative outlet.
    A few months ago I decided that all cool bloggers have their own .com, and now I’m live at
    So I guess I’ve been blogging longer than you, Chantelle! 😉

  • Hi! 🙂 My blog was launched on May 23rd, 2013! 🙂 Not that old but I plan to have it for a long time. I’m focusing on content over making money because I believe that is the way to become successful with your blog. Great blogversation:)

  • I started reading your blog back in 2009 and have loved watching it grow! I took the leap and began my own blog in 2011.

  • Michelle W

    My first blog (Amusing Michelle) started at the very end of 2010. It was a way of sharing my work without boring my friends and family on Facebook, LOL! It is pretty much completely focused on card-making, so when I started doing a little photography, I started another blog (Happy Snap Michelle) in January 2012. That way my papercrafting friends aren’t bored by my photos. 🙂 I’ve made so many friends blogging, and learned so much by reading others’ blogs. I love this community!

    I attempted to start a blog around 2009, but didn’t have anything I really wanted to talk about. Then I had a kid and by March of 2011 I realized that it would be a great way to keep the many grandparents in the know so I started again. Turns out only one grandparent reads it, but I’ve been able to connect with other bloggers with kids my age. It’s great to read what’s going on with their kids – it’s a nice community to turn when a lot of my friends have kids that are older than mine.

  • Lisa {plain jane creations}

    I began blogging way back on the 2nd March 2007. The years have flown by and it so good to look back, it’s like a family diary, any event I seem to be able to find when someone asks “when did we”. I’ve also had a 3 blog books published and I’m almost ready to order my 4th. These are a wonderful family and creative document for me. I wonder what family will think of them decades down the track. A great window into our lives, something I would love to have for some of my relatives who are no longer with us. I hope I don’t ever stop blogging, it’s a big part of who I am.

  • I used to have a geocities page back in the day (like ten years ago) which was kind of like a blog. I started my actual blog just over a year and a half ago.

  • Amanda Attard

    i started around 2007/2008 when i was working as a primary school teacher and wanted a way to share some of the children’s work with parents who weren’t able to be at the school because of work commitments.
    i then started another one when i was heading overseas travelling as a way to keep in touch and post photos – but lack of internet meant i didn’t post as often as i would’ve liked.
    my newest blog at started as a result of work mates constantly asking me for the recipe for whatever i was eating for lunch. it’s been going for around 4 months.

  • Daneyl Green

    I had a little blog in 2008 but it was seldom used and a bit of a dumping ground for my mind, which wasn’t all that happy at the time. My blg now (The Strands Of Me) has been going since around March 2010.

  • michelle barrington

    Gee You’re Brave began when we headed off on our RTW trip in 2009, so 4 years ago now. How the time flies

  • Karina

    I just started mine a couple months ago!

  • Phil Merrigan

    About 2 years since I was diagnosed with depression and blogged my up and down journey through it. Suffice to say depression is a minefield.

  • Six months old tomorrow! I had a little blog my my eldest was born for family, but I started Style Unearthed in March. Happy belated birthday to your blog, Telle!

  • I’ve been blogging since ’09-ish. However, I officially restarted my entire blog on January 1st, 2012 and have since left ’tis as is!

  • Manon

    I have been blogging for about 4 years now, but I deleted all of it and started fresh at the beginning of this month.

  • laurajane0103

    My current blog is 1.5 years old but I’ve been blogging on and off (on a private friends-and-family blog) since 2008.

  • Art by Megan

    Mine is 2.5! I’m still working on creating content for readers often, I get stuck (writers block?) sometimes and take a little break! Also, I’m not sure about sharing the details of my family but that seems to be what draws people to blogs…tough one!

  • Naomi Fenton

    Well, my blog archives go back to 2009, but I don’t really feel like I started blogging proper-like until 2011. That was when I started thinking more seriously about what I put on my blog – and even then it probably wasn’t until last year when I felt like I would actually call myself a “blogger” and have it actually mean something. At least, I think it means something!

  • Happy Blog Anniversary! I started HR Bartender in May 2008.

  • Debbi

    My first blog started January 15, 2006.
    Due to some personal difficulties, I had to stop writing there, and created Knit. Run. Reap. Eat. on May 14, 2008.
    Happy blogaversary, Chantelle! Yours is one of my favorites!

  • M Bette

    Blogging has been a trial and error for me since 2011. Since then, I’ve started and taken a break from two blogs. Time played a factor, but mostly because I was so focused on the numbers–how many followers do I have, how many has my site gotten, who’s commenting on what post, etc… It started becoming less fun and more of a chore.

    But now, starting my new blog, I have a different perspective, and I’m really trying to focus on the things I love to do (mainly just writing) and not so much on the numbers or the hits. That comes secondary to the enjoyment and fulfillment of finally having an outlet to express myself.

    Thanks for posing the question! Love your blog, especially your photos. They’re always so lovely 🙂

  • I started my first blog in 2009. Then, I started drifting in and out before completely stopping for awhile. I went back to my old blog for a little bit in 2012. But, I wanted something completely new and that is when I started my site that I have now. The blog I have now started this year in June.

  • trevorcoultart

    Actually, having said I started in 2007, that did only refer to my current blog. I kept another blog under a pseudonym from June 2005 until August 2007 which I loved but had to stop as it was about our personal life (it broadly covered our pregnancy and related matters) but my wife didn’t like it being public, even under a pseudonym. It’s still out there somewhere but I can’t share a link. Not allowed.

  • I have been writing off and on for about a year. With two little ones I don’t have a lot of time to give it much love so it looks a little plain, but I write about my adventures with the kids and food ( or

  • A bit over a year…in fact I think I missed my first birthday!

  • Erin Drummond

    I’m only a newbie, been blogging since May 🙂

    • Michele @ The Hills are Alive

  • elisha hayes

  • Just gone 1 year! Hip hip hooray!

  • vintage peony

    4 years >.<

  • I’m only a month into my blog. It’s gone so quickly though.

  • About 1.5 years…I thought I might have run out of things to say by now but as long as there’s online shopping finds to share, cafes to review & cakes to make…I’ll be writing 🙂

  • Karin

    I started my blog on June 13 2005, first post – (in Swedish).

  • My blog is nearly two years old. What started off as an outlet for me to share my experience of cancer diagnosis and treatment, has turned into a celebration of life and all the things I love. It was literally a lifesaver!

    • mine was exactly the same for me! I helped me get my life back after beating cancer, gave me a purpose xx

  • Michele @ The Hills are Alive

    March 31st, 2008 so that would be 5 and a bit years, five and a half

  • Erik Van’t Ende

    Like half a year or so… I’m kinda struggling to get a rhythm though. For me thats the hardest part.

  • Pretty Fluffy will be three next month (and moving on from the terrible twos – ha ha!)


    Mine is only two weeks old! I’ve wanted to blog for a while and finally did it. Having so much fun. Currently figuring out how to sort out all my thoughts on different topics so it doesn’t come out to readers like verbal mush LOL! Would love it if you stopped by and gave me some feedback, Chantelle! Love your blog x

  • Cathryn

    My blog is about a year and a half old. Started it just to show ideas for products I sell. Now find that even though I am still doing that, the blog is more about what I am creating. Still not very good at the writing and don’t have many hits but I really enjoy posting. Just an outlet for me I guess.

  • Since 2007, I have many…

  • I have many. Since 2007

  • Only about 4 months full on (on this blog)…but damn its fun!

  • Realitys Fine Line

    My newest blog is nearly 18 mths old

  • Natalie

    9 months for me… wow how time flies! I’m still trying to make sure I post regularly, at first I wanted to post a few times a week, but now I aim for once a week, but don’t beat myself up about it if I miss one here or there.

  • Cristina Maria

    I have just turned 4 years old and i’m proud and happy 😀 Many more to us 😀

  • Been blogging for 6 months now – I love it! x

  • Mirella

    I am blogging since 2005 about my children, but last summer I have began my photography blog, I love giving tips and show my work.

    I really love your blog, maybe someday I will make a blog like this also, Yes I loveeee bloging haha

  • my blog will be one year old on Jan 3rd 2014 . . . I really can’t believe it, what started off as a hobby when I was recovering from cancer has evolved and grown so much, only 35 followers off 1,000 I am over the moon and so in love with it!
