Today we start a dozen years of blogging at My GBGV Life. Our blog was founded by Debucher Baguette, Emma, on November 8th, 2011. She had no idea where it would go over the years, but her idea was Grand. In 2014, she finally got a professional logo which works perfectly even after so many years.
When the first post came out, Emma didn’t know how to use WordPress. She had the free version and didn’t even label her post title, LOL! At the time she was a lone GBGV at our house and lived with our other dear sister Katie the Kuvasz and the two felines Bert and Sophie. She planned to name it Emma’s blog or Life With Emma, but then decided to remove her name so the blog would not die if something happened to her. Sadly, she did pass away, but her blog and legacy live on. The above photo was taken in November 2011.
With time, My GBGV Life has evolved. For one thing, Emma became a real business woman. Once she found BlogPaws, she earned money through product reviews for many years. She set up social media accounts, built large followings, and then came more GBGV’s into her life – Bailie in 2013, and Madison in 2016.
Sadly BlogPaws as Emma knew it dissolved but the blog has continued. These days we have changed our focus away from reviews to life with dogs and a lot of dog sports information. Emma left me, Madison, her blog. I do my best to keep it going and my siblings are a big help in getting posts put together. We have seen many blogging friends come and go over the years which is sad on one paw, but exciting on the other. Blogging at My GBGV Life is fun and we hope to keep it up and running for a long time! Cheers to a Grand twelfth year! A special thank you to all our followers, especially those who have been around since almost the beginning.
My GBGV Life is happy, so we’re joining Comedy Plus for Happy Tuesday!
