YES! I have been blogging for 5 YEARS! I never really took count of the years but that’s a preeeeeeeeeeeeety looooooooooooooooong tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiime 😀
My first ever blog was created when I was only SEVEN YEARS OLd! May I remind you that I was only SEVEN YEARS OLD AND MADE THE BLOG ALL ON MY OWN!

Yeah, It was all about kids learning facts! Cool facts for cool kids XD It’s really cute looking back at it! This blog got quite popular among my family members. When I was younger I was so proud of myself for creating this blog now looking back it’s not as good as I thought XD

I also had a book review and writing blog, filled with misspellings and bad blog design 😛

Back when I first started KidFacta I never knew how much blogging would change my life. The friendships I have made, the fun I have had, the people like me I discovered. I might have never made it here if I hadn’t started KidFacta.

My advice to you is, whenever you feel a spark of creativity… CREATE! DOODLE! MAKE! Let that fire burn and you can create something completely amazing!

recap

I want to thank you all for making Elysian Artiste what it is now! You all encouraged and inspired me to keep blogging and you all were there for me when times were tough! Thanks so much for being the amazing friends you all are 😀

I just want to thank you all so much! This means a lot to me and I am really grateful for all of the amazing people I’ve met on WordPress! Thanks so much!

d Stats Are BOOMING!

Elysian Artiste is getting 33 views every two hours, every day. I am not sure if that is a lot or a little but I am still thankful! Elysian Artiste has gone from a few views a day, to 33 views hourly each day, that is amazing!

 

d (1)Starting  Elysian Artiste has helped me find the true me.

I have started many blogs about my various interests, Most of the things I was blogging about, wasn’t really what I truly loved, It was just popular things others were blogging about, such as American Girl Dolls and Beanie Boos. I didn’t get that far and I felt as if I was pretending to truly love those items. I realized that just because other girls wrote about their dolls and got a lot of visitors, comments, likes, etc didn’t mean that was what I should do.  So I started Elysian Artiste and it was one of the best choices I ever made. I learned that being yourself and doing what you love, is better than pretending to be someone else. I posted my stories, art, and photography, because that was me, and that is what I love to do!

big news

My parents let me get a youtube channel! I am super duper excited and I can’t wait!

What I got for Christmas

So I didn’t get a lot of items for Christmas, but my parents gave me more opportunities and privileges.

1 A YOUTUBE CHANNEL

I am so thankful! I have always wanted a youtube channel! Every time I was unboxing something or drawing or something like that I would record myself and talk to my “so-called’ subscribers. Now I finally have one! I am so happy! I have been prepping for this channel for years and I am excited to make it a real channel!

dA WRECK THIS JOURNAL

For countless years, I have been watching people wreck these journals, and I always thought that they were so COOOOOL! It literally was the only thing I watched for a while. After a few months of watching the videos, I kind of stopped because I got interested in some other things but I still wanted one. So in November, I started to look at the videos some more and I knew I really wanted and I thought it was to help me unleash my creative juices, even more, inspire me to think out of the box.

So basically, long story short, I got one! I actually just decorated the cover today and I love it! I am going to be making a series of posts and Videos about the journal and show you my progress!
