My Blogiversary

by Meghann on September 11, 2009

Happy Birthday Inner Workings of a College Graduate!


Exactly one year ago today I had a little free time at work, so after months of reading other healthy living blogs, I decided that day was the day I was going to start my own. I opened up a WordPress account and wrote my first entry. The rest is history.

It’s hard to believe a whole year of my life is documented on this blog. I can go back on any given day and see what I was up to 1 month ago, 6 months ago or even a year ago!

It’s also interesting to see where my life has gone in the past year. We never truly know what our future holds!

I’ve updated my Favorite Posts Page to include all of my favorite posts from the last year including the story of how I became a blogger. It’s been fun to take a trip down memory lane the past couple days. I only hope over the next year I am able to have just as many great times to share.

Thanks for taking the time to take a little glimpse into my life everyday. I hope to have inspired some of you, like so many have inspired me.

Thanks for being there I as ran my heart out.


Thanks for taking the time to entertain me on my travels.

(Denver, CO)


(Tampa, FL)

(Long Beach, CA)

(San Diego, CA)

(Asheville, NC)

Thanks for supporting my crazy adventures.

Thanks for being there as sad times unfortunately interrupted the good times. 


Thanks for making the Healthy Living Summit a success.


Thanks for sticking with me as I made a fool of myself on here time and time again.



And a million thanks for all the wonderful comments, e-mails, tweets, etc. that inspire me on a daily basis. You guys rock!

I thought it only appropriate to celebrate this occasion with my favorite breakfast of all time: Pumpkin Waffle!


I topped my Pumpkin Waffle with Plain Oikos and some Cranberry Apple Chutney.



Here is to another year of good eats and good times.

Congrats on your 1 year blogiversary! It’s been nice getting to know you over this past year – I think I first started reading your blog last October, so I’ve been with you almost the whole time.

It’s funny because our paths never would have crossed in a million years, and even though you are 16 years younger than me – I’ve watched you grow this past year!

You are a beautiful young woman – keep up the good work! 😀
