Blog Anniversary: 6 years with My Migraine Life

Year of the Pandemic

Today is my blog anniversary. 6 years has been a long and amazing journey. When I started my blog, I didn’t know what one was. I didn’t follow any blogs and I had trouble figuring out what association was with what foundation doing what campaign. It took me a long time to find my footing in advocacy. Wow, have these groups grown! I feel good as I have watched all these websites grow and I’m happy to be a part of it. Many of us have paved the way for more migraine bloggers and advocates. It has to lead me down a path that provides strength, support, knowledge but without firm answers to my health.

Blog Anniversary

I had no idea when I posted my first post that it would serve as a day to remember years down the line. It also is a day that I’ve celebrated for 15 years. Long before I started my blog, my soul mate animal was born. My therapy dog and best friend’s birthday is today. She passed away 2 years ago and I am still dealing with grief. I believe I will always hold sadness and longing for her. It has been an enormous hurdle and those of you that have had an emotional support pet understand.

I first began with a blog challenge for migraine and headache awareness month. Each year I participate in awareness month and it grows hugely. I’m so proud of the people I have aligned with and for spreading the word of these fantastic advocates.

I’d love to walk down memory lane but I’m more interested in hearing what you think.

  • What are your favorite blog posts I’ve written?
  • What topics and events do you enjoy learning about?
  • Have you been impacted by my blog? How?
  • What would you like to see that I’m missing?
  • How are you impacted by migraine and why do you follow?

Please let a comment below and I will follow up with social media comments also. A blog anniversary is a time to celebrate and renew.

Happy Anniversary Blog

Mostly, I’d like to thank all of the followers and people who have supported me on this journey. My fundraisers for Miles for Migraine would not be able to be a success without your funds. You are the inspiration to help keep me going. Blogging with migraine is not easy and difficult to keep up with. Financially, it is something I try to get funded so that I can continue but it is difficult. Each product you buy from my affiliate links allows me to fund my blog and efforts. Thank you!

Each comment fuels me! Every share inspires me. And each follows numerically shows me growth. Please continue to follow, share, comment, and support My Migraine Life.  Without you, the world of migraine would be less seen and more stigmatized.

Comment below and follow on: Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter

Thank you!!!!!

    So bittersweet to have your dog’s birthday and to still feel the raw pain of her passing a couple of years ago, I’m so sorry. I still find it painfully sad to think of my dog, and we had to let him go just over 8 years ago.

    But there’s also a lot to celebrate – Happy Bloggiversary!! You should be very proud of everything you’ve achieved and continue to accomplish with MML. Here’s to more Happy Blogging..!
