my name's birthdayface

Somehow, in all my Christmas and New Year's excitement, I failed to post a very special update that monumentally and gloriously occurred in December: 


Yes, that's right:
In the time that I've been blogging on good ol' AE, some human has finished half of high school, or gotten a degree, or had a child, even two children. That's not a small amount of time, I dare say!

Most of you probably don't know this, but Acoustic Erin isn't actually my first blog. 
Sometime in 2012, in my senior year of high school, I joined Blogger as a very green but curious newbie writing a blog called Write Dream Run Sing. I wrote mainly about my daily life and high school adventures. Also, I recall a lot of pink....? I was obsessed with Shabby Chic and hair bows and such at the time.

I also don't think I knew what GIFs were back then. Can you tell I'm making up for lost time?

Like other bloggers, I eventually fell into a love-hate relationship with blogging, and felt compelled to delete my first blog. I then created a couple more that never quite worked out, and were very short lived. Then in December of 2013, I started fresh for the last time, finally hitting my stride with Acoustic Erin!  

 In celebration of 2 years of pretty consistent blogging, I thought I'd take the time to re-introduce myself to those of you who are relatively new readers.

My name is Erin, and I'm a 22 year old full-time journalism student. I have my AA degree and am currently working towards getting my Bachelor's. Halfway through my college career, I took a year off to study the Bible at a Bible college. Part of the reason I started writing Acoustic Erin was to document this special one-year journey.

Even though I'm back at university now, I keep up my blog because I can't imagine not blogging. My favorite things are hiking the Appalachian Trail, writing songs with my sister, playing the acoustic guitar, procrastinating writing my novel, listening to vinyl records and living out this adventure of a life Jesus has provided for me! 

*sassy pout*

Well, that's me. I welcome any feedback that you guys have. Now is as good a time as any to ask what kinds of posts you fancy the most? I'd love to see Acoustic Erin continue to grow in 2016....but what direction should it go in? I'm really curious to hear y'all's opinions on what works, what doesn't.
Let me know what you think, yo.

  1. Happy birthday, AE!! I hope the next two years are just as great as the first. :)

  2. Pleased to meet you Erin! I think you have to keep a blog of the same ways, be natural and to live the moment and your desire ... your blog is good, and I like your last photo of your post ... Bye

    1. I agree; being natural is one of the best ways to keep up an authentic blog. I think sometimes bloggers stress themselves out with all the ideas of planning and posting, when it's supposed to be leisurely, and, of course, fun :) Thanks for the kind comment! ^_^

  3. Blog as you were :)
    Happy blog birthday.

  4. Very nice to meet you! And of course happy blog birthday. :)

  5. Happy blog birthday!!
    I love looking back on how much progress I've made in the past years of blogging.
    I love all of the gifs, by the way!
    I am so loving your blog and I'm so glad I followed!

    1. Aw, thank you! It can be so much fun to see how far you have come in your blogging journey ^_^


Go with grace.
