    I don’t remember when I started reading your blog. I know it’s been over a year, because it was before Allume (well, Relevant) last year. Beyond that I don’t recall. 🙂

  9. Kelley Avatar

    I have been reading your blog consistently for a few months now. I love all that you write about! I am also an old follower of YLCF 6 or 7 years ago.

    1. Trina Avatar

      Kelley, lovely to have you here! I love the community that YLCF has fostered–I’ve met so many kindred hearts from that site!

    Just found this here blog so just started following it. Thanks.

    1. Trina Avatar

      so excited to have you, Elizabeth!

  11. Natasha Metzler Avatar

    Well, now. I’ve been reading your blog since…. I’m not sure. A year and half? Maybe a bit longer? I started reading it around the time you met Meg. So maybe quite a bit longer. (I’m not that great with time frames, can you tell? 🙂 )

    To be honest (and because it’ll make you happy) I actually mixed you up with Tiny Twig for a long, long time. I read your blog on my phone which is SO not a smart phone and there were no graphics at all, just words. Eventually I realized that it was you, not her, because her website is actually too complex for my poor little phone. 🙂 But I think your web address is still saved under the name “Tiny Twig” on the old cell. Ha!

    1. Trina Avatar

      Oh, my goodness. I am so flattered. and I adore you. thank you for sharing that little story. so honored to blog alongside you.
