Miss Coily Hair Turns 1- What I Learned My First Year Blogging

That’s right y’all, Miss Coily Hair turned 1 this month! I’m so excited to see this day! Can you believe this? My little blog turns 1! I didn’t think I’d see this day. 1 year blogging consistently, 40+ posts, hundreds of comments and followers and thousands of views. My little blog is growing a lot faster than I thought it would. And it’s all because of you, my darling readers. A little history on how Miss Coily Hair started. Around this time last year, I wasn’t working and I was bored out of my mind. I was tired of spending my days binge-watching “Law & Order SVU” or pass out on the beach. Don’t get me wrong, I love the beach. I talked about it here, but when that’s all you do, it gets boring quick. Also, during that time I was figuring out what to do with my hair…

My Life As A Loner- Things You Can Enjoy Alone

Since I’ve embarked on a journey of self-discovery lately, I have been able to learn quite a few things about myself. Some I didn’t know and some I probably already knew, but never really paid attention to. One of these things is reconfirming the fact that I am a loner.

Of course, without hesitation, he picked loner. Contrary to what some might think, being a loner is awesome! I’m ok being a loner. I love being alone and doing things all by my lonesome.
