Today marks six months since I took the leap and launched my blog. It’s been such a cathartic learning experience thus far. I appreciate all the support, feedback and kindness I’ve received whether it’s over social media or email. As you can imagine—it’s daunting to open up about life with a chronic disease and coming up with a story idea each week isn’t always the easiest! But, I’m happy with where the blog has started and excited to see what the future holds.
I found out I was pregnant two days after I started this blog. Now, I’m more than 30 weeks pregnant! It’s been so exciting to share the journey with you all. I’m excited to be a mom and to continue to share thought-provoking content about living life with a positive state of mind while battling Crohn’s.
Here’s a snapshot of the top three most read stories on the blog:
- Living each day with a “Jade state of mind”
- 11 years ago today, a bittersweet anniversary
- I have Crohn’s…and I’m going to be a Mom!
Over the last six months, more than 8,000 people from around the world have checked out a story on Lights, Camera, Crohns. Crazy to think there are readers in New Zealand, Angola, Switzerland, Ireland and Brazil… just to name a few!
I’m always looking for story ideas and topics that interest you. Send ideas to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you SO much for taking the time to read my stories, educate yourself about inflammatory bowel disease and inspire me to open up about a subject that is often not discussed.
Cheers to many more months and years of Lights, Camera, Crohns…I have a feeling the best is yet to come!
