Celebrating One Year Of Bella Raine!

Hello friends!!

Wow you guys…I can’t believe I’m writing this post.

Today, one year ago I launched the blog, Bella Raine.

My my how the time flies! I still remember the week of preparation, the agonizing over the website building, the nervousness when I finally hit publish, and the continual amazement at the support I got. And still get!

Today in celebration of this milestone, I’m looking back over the last year with some fun stats, thoughts, and yes, freebies!

~ one year of bella raine ~

Story Behind The Blog: I’m a member of the Young Writer’s Workshop and one thing they have taught us is the importance of building a platform for your author career! Well back in the spring of 2023, I had zero platform or online presence at all! 😆 But really it was a fellow blogger friend whose blog I saw and thought “Oh! I could do that!”.  She was kind enough to let me pick her brain and a few months later on May 24th, 2023 (after much research, planning, and preparation) I launched Bella Raine. And man has it been a super fun journey! Full of ups and down, highs and lows, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. ❤️

Biggest Takeaways From The Journey: I had no idea how much blogging would grow me, in so many areas. Website design, communication, punctuality, graphic design, computer tech, creativity, and the list goes on. It’s been SO special the support I’ve gotten from you guys, truly it means the world!

I’m just so thankful. Thankful to God for His faithfulness, thankful to you for your support, thankful to my family for their love and encouragement, and thankful to everyone who has played a part in the blog. ❤️

~ the promised freebies ~

I wrote a short story a little bit ago about Peter walking on water, titling it “COME”. I thought I would share it with you guys! I would LOVE to know what you think afterward you read it!

I also made two wallpapers for your phone, one with a Bible verse and the other with a C.S. Lewis quote! I hope you enjoy! ☺️

Cheers to the next year! 🥂
