Welcome back to day 2 of 12 days of blogmas. For the next 11 days, there will be a new blog post every day until Christmas. Make sure to comment below on what you want to read.
I have been blogging for over a year now. What a lot of people do not know is I started this blog under a whole different name. It was going to be called “The Guide to the Best me.” I changed it because it did not roll off the tongue like Life is a Peach.
In the rest of the post, I will dive deeper into why I started, where my inspiration comes from, and how I got the name. I hope you enjoy it!
Why did I start?
Blogs have been something I have been reading for years. I loved reading them because there is such a variety of different blogs. I found that they helped me in many different ways. So, I started my blog to help others.
I wanted to be a source for people to go to when they wanted some advice or just something to read. I love to write and I like helping others, combine that all together and you have my blog. As much as this blog helps others it helps me as well. It allows me to have a place where I can put my thoughts and hope someone out there can relate.
Where does my inspiration come from?
It all started last summer, I went through a pretty rough time. I had just finished school, I had a 4-month long sinus infection (it’s a long story) and I also had no idea what was coming up next. Basically, my anxiety took over and I went through a rough patch.
What kept me going was my family, friends and the bloggers/ YouTubers I looked up to. These people made me feel not alone. I read many stories of strangers going through the same thing. Honestly, these people did not feel like strangers they felt like long lost friends.
That is what I wanted to do. I wanted to be there for people in the good, the bad, and the ugly. I wanted my blog to have so many layers. When you need some positive vibes I got you or when you just need someone to relate I got you too!
Where did Life is a Peach come from?
It sounds so cliché but the name just came to me. I had been thinking about many different names. I ran a bunch by my boyfriend and friends but none of them ever sounded right. Until one day Life is a Peach popped in my head and I could not get it out.
I have no idea if I had heard it somewhere before or, it just made sense to me but, as soon as I thought of it, I just knew it was the name for my blog. I love it because it can have many different meanings. First, it can be mean life is peachy, like it’s going well or it can mean life is a PEACH (aka a Bitch) when things are going bad. It just fits in the sense that life a roller coaster and has many different meanings to it.
Finally, thank you!
This blog would not be possible without the love and support I receive constantly from you. I get numerous, dms & emails from people I know and people I don’t know telling me how much they enjoy my blog. It melts my heart every time.
When I get these types of responses I feel like I am doing what I am supposed to be doing. I want you to always remember I am just a message away. I love interacting with people. DM me any time. I am also always taking suggests for blog posts. If you ever have an idea you want to read about just give me a dm.
Thank you so much for all the love and support.
