Celebrating, Happy 1 year Blogiversary


One year ago, I had a thought, an idea, a dream.  That dream then became a blog, my reality.  I started with no knowledge about blogging.   With the encouragement of my older daughter, Youricka, Marjiesimpleword.com was born.

During that process, I have learned so much, and I still have a lot to learn to make my blog perfect.  So many things happened this year, I pushed myself and kept my commitment.  I have so much joy in this little corner where I share my thoughts, my kitchen, quotes that I love, and lately, some health advice which is what I do on a daily basis with my patients as a nurse.

I am thankful for my children who understand that blogging has become my new hobby and are enjoying it with me.  I am thankful for my cousin who has helped me set up my blog.  I am thankful for one of my new neighbors who helped me when I was struggling with something as simple as inserting an affiliate link.

I do believe that whenever you are passionate about something, you have to do it with love.  The universe will put people in your path to assist and guide you.  You just have to love what you do and do it with love.  That’s my motto for everything in life.

Life is an ongoing journey filled with opportunities to learn.  I am determined to grow and become a better version of myself.  My goal for next year for my blog is to improve the quality of my pictures.  I would appreciate all your advice on this matter.  I also want to continue to inspire others with my simple words.

As I am happily celebrating that milestone, I just want you to remember whatever idea you have, with determination, love, and passion, you will make it happen.  There will be cloudy days, and you will want to give up.  Feeling down is okay, just know that you are stronger during these hardships.  You just have to pick yourself up, learn to laugh about yourself and move on.

Thank you for reading!
