Happy 1 year Bloggi-versary: Mobile App

Good day readers! I'm celebrating my 1 year blog anniversary. 
To celebrate my 1 year anniversary, I decided to make my own App! Yes, I said it, my own app. A new definition to "Take Me With You." lol Before you go searching on all the app stores, hang on one minute. I wanted to make something for my readers to take me with you on the go :D (hopefully you'll want to take me on the go), but I didn't want to spend an arm and a leg. Especially if it's just for my readers, and no I wasn't about to let one of you pay to read my app! That's just ridic! No, you can't find me on the app stores, but it's still an app. 

So here it is, it may take you 2 minutes to install (depending on your experience with technology) (These instructions are for your computer) I've only tried it on iPhone, so I don't know about android phones :(  Visit this page http://appsmakerstore.com/appim/o97mywpifmjps2

That link will take you to my app page. You'll need a QRreader (scanner) to scan the code (it's circled in the pic)

(If your on your phone, follow the link on safari, it should take you straight to the app. Click on the safari symbol all the way to the right, and follow these instructions. (the safari symbol looks like a little compass needle.))
Follow the instructions on the pics below.

Then you should have my app on your phone :) Remember that I only tried this on the iphone, and I'm not sure if android users are able to have my app. If anyone has android, let me know if you were able to install my app on your phone. 

One year ago today, I decided to share my life, crafts, stories, and love with the world. I remember contemplating for a while whether I was ready to open my life up to so many stumbling readers.

I was scared that...
I wouldn't have a single reader.
No one would care to view my blog. 
Some person would hate my blog.
My friends and family would just judge me, and have conversation pieces against me. 
I would be the laughing stock of the bloggy world. 

After much consideration, I did it! I opened my blog to the world. At first I was obsessed! I was constantly on blogger. Checking stats, viewing page views, etc. I couldn't take my focus away from my blog. I opened up my blog with my most popular post even till this day...


Now I have to admit, it did take me a while to come out of the blogger closet with my friends and family. I was so worried, that they would just bash me and my writing. That they would turn around and talk about my blog as though it were a joke. That they would use my blog in my face as part of their jokes. I would constantly worry that they would think I was sharing too much of my life with the world. Even worse, that I was sharing their lives, pictures, etc. too much with the world. The balance was hard, and yet I learned to balance blogging and real world just fine. I love blogging. I know I haven't blogged everyday these past few months, and at times my posts have been few and far between. I still call m blog my home. It's my little humble space on the Internet. Although, I'm not a famous blog writer, I LOVE, love, love to hear from an occasional reader! It makes blogging so worth it! 

I do hope you like my app! Let me know what you think, and if their is anything you suggest I change or add. Whatever input would be amaze-balls to me!
