Once a blogger...

ALWAYS a blogger!

You would think that after 10 years of being part of the blogging world this girl would be tired of online journaling...


I have lost a few blogs (some that were accidently deleted) in between causing me to get frustrated and take breaks through all these years and actually even went through an identity crises while trying to discover who I was on my little corner of the internet.

Oh how things have changed!!! 

Blogging was simple back then. You would pour your heart out into a post - it was always so raw and emotional. Nowadays everyone is in it for the money which I find quite sad. There is also the word influencer (which is a blogger who mostly posts on Instagram) and there are Youtubers too.

My favorite word so far has to be CREATOR! I think of myself as a creative person and will usually use more than one social media platform so this word is perfect.

How about I give you a chronological throwback (with as many random images as I could find on the internet) about my blogging career:

Year: 2005 - 2008
Platform: TypePad 
Blog Niche: Scrapbooking & Crafts
Name: Crafts by Nina

-This blog was about my crafts & vinyl lettering business. Once I ended my business then I transitioned this blog into Karina's challenge.

Year 2009-2010
Platform: Blogger
Blog Niche: Mommy/Lifestyle/Fashion
Name: Karina's Challenge

-This blog started as a challenge to myself. I wanted to put myself out there more and meet people from all walks of life. I blogged about being a mom, had fashion round-ups, and anything/everything Utah related. I only had it for one year before changing it's name to The Bucket List Girl. 

Year 2010-2014
Platform: WordPress
Blog Niche: Food/DIY/Lifestyle
Name: The Bucket List Girl

-The Bucket List Girl will always be near and dear to my heart. Out of all my lost blogs, this one really hurt me. I wrote so many fun ideas about starting a bucket list. I also shared delicious foods, DIY projects, and completed ALOT of things on my huge bucket list! 

Year 2015-present
Platform: Blogger
Blog Niche: Nutrition/Fitness/DIY/Lifestyle
Name: Nina Talks LLC

- With Nina Talks came Freedom! I was on a path of recovery. My personal World had turned upside down and quite honestly, blogging was the last thing on my mind. I kept hearing this little voice in my head saying that I needed to get back into it. After taking a year off (and having The Bucket List Girl blog deleted by accident) I was ready for a fresh start! So Nina Talks was born. I have had a few host issues in the past 3 years and finally made the switch back to blogger so that this will never happen again! (even though I lost a little bit of my content the past 3 years due to computer crashes). 

How about all this for a throwback? There a few old videos too that I might share with you all in the future. It's great to see how much I've grown not only in the blogging world, but personally in the past 10 years. I hope you stick around as I get things back on track for Nina Talks LLC because I'm here to share extraordinary things with you. Be very REAL. Not hold back and just live life!
