15 Years #CoffeeTalk

My 15-year “blogiversary” came and went last month without much fanfare. I had planned to take the obligatory balloon pictures and make a big deal of it, but life got busy, and time got away from me. Now that a few weeks have passed, it seems a little anticlimactic to do something like that, but I wanted to at least document it with a post.

I started this blog on March 25, 2006, with absolutely no expectations whatsoever. I was at home all day every day with three small kids, we had just moved to a new area, and a blog seemed like a fun project for a time.

I had never kept a diary for more than a few weeks, and I was known for trying new hobbies and losing interest after a while, so I had no illusions that I would stick with a blog for any length of time. And yet, here we are! Let’s just say, no one is more surprised than I am.

I started the blog mainly to keep friends and family from afar apprised of our family happenings, but what I found was a community of moms sharing their stories.

July, 2006

Back then, a blog was more of an online journal, and most people who read blogs were other bloggers. The average person didn’t even know what a blog was, so it for a time, the blogosphere was this cool geeky subculture. But eventually, as more and more people discovered this space, and bloggers got too busy to read other blogs, there became a distinction between creators and consumers.

Brands quickly began to notice the influence we had, and they wanted to get in on the action. We were offered free samples in exchange for a review, or money to place an obscure link into our content. Some of us were invited on press trips or included in media events, and conferences were formed to educate and connect brands and bloggers.

Some blogs stayed true to their story-telling roots, but over time, many became a source of information. (The ones who did it best combined the two.) Recipes, product reviews, craft ideas, budgeting advice, and fashion tips were all common topics. Many hired contributors and turned their blogs into digital lifestyle magazines.

It was the Wild, Wild West there for a time, as there were no guidelines besides outdated journalistic standards that didn’t always make sense applied to the digital space. Sometimes things got contentious, and it was definitely messy at times, but it was cool to be a part of the evolution of blogging and social media.

A lot of the women who were big into blogging during those early years have let it go, as their lives got busy and they got involved in other things, but others of us adapted as the space evolved and were able to make a business out of it. And of course, that isn’t limited to blogs. Many are making a living in this digital space without a blog at all.

YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and TikTok were all born after I started blogging, and many influencers have found a voice on those platforms. Some even say that blogs are dead… to which I always laugh hilariously. My blog is far from dead, as you well know! Although I use Facebook and Instagram to a degree, this blog is my bread and butter, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

This blog has allowed me to visit places like Costa Rica and Turks & Caicos; I’ve been to the headquarters of Bosch, Chick-Fil-A, T.J.Maxx, and Target; I’ve spoken at numerous conferences and met celebrities like Giada De Laurentiis, Kristin Davis, and Jeff Probst.

I even had in a full page Olay ad in Cosmopolitan Magazine, and I was on the Dr. Oz Show.

It really is mind-boggling to think about all the opportunities I’ve had because of that random decision to start a blog back in 2006.

I started out writing about our family life, and as time went on, I joined the ranks of those sharing recipes and product reviews, and eventually my personal style. I even did the thing where I hired contributors to write about other topics. Let’s just say, I threw a lot of mud at the wall over the years, but eventually I could see that the only way to stay relevant in this space was to choose a niche.

At the time, fashion made the most sense — not because I was especially good at it, but because there weren’t a lot of women my age doing it. I decided to ditch Musings of a Housewife, which had been my online brand since 2006, and write under my own name. That was 2015, and I haven’t looked back.

I’ll never forget my first fashion blogging conference (rStheCon) in the Spring of 2016 — soon after I had decided to make fashion my primary focus. That was when things really started moving towards what this blog is today. Isn’t it funny how everything has gotten bigger and better over the years? Even our photo sizes… ha!

While the exciting events and opportunities have slowed down over the past few years, I feel like I finally know what I want to be when I grow up. I have no idea what the future holds, and with how fast this space changes, it really is anybody’s guess, but I feel like there will be a place for this blog in my life for a very long time.

The one thing I do know is this, the only way I can continue doing what I do is because of YOU, so thank you so very much for being here! Here’s to another 15 years!🥂

    1. Congratulations on 15 years! How interesting to read the history and evolution of this blog! I started following you sometime in the “Musings” stage – you’ve become like a familiar old friend in my inbox. I have you to thank for some of my most cherished wardrobe items, as well as for introducing me to new brands and good styling tips generally. Here’s to seeing your emails for another 15 years, or for however long the future holds!

  1. Cheers to 15 yrs! Thank you for evolving and hanging around for 15 yrs. i have learned ABOUT NEW, quality Brands from you. your style is very similar to mine, so sometimes i feel like i have my own stylist.

  2. Congrats on 15 years! It was so fun clicking on those links and seeing your history! I’ve followed you (you are the first blogger I discovered) for about 5 or 6 years now and continue to read almost daily. I applauded and appreciate how grounded and accessible you are to your readers. It really makes us feel valued! Cheers to 15 more years!

  3. Congratulations on your Blogiversary! 15 years is a long time. You must be tremendously proud of your accomplishments. You are my fav blogger. I love your candid comments. Why or why not something works. Eye for quality. Admitting your goofs and touting your many successes. You keep us updated and provide guidance to fight the frump. I found your blog at the tail end of a 100 lb loss. I hadn’t worn regular sizes in nearly 20 years. I was lost. I started with your blog, then read your older posts. You educated & updated my fashion sense and brought me up to speed on many things, with incredibly helpful detail on jeans (so overwhelming) Thank you so much, Jo-Lynne, you are AWESOME.

  4. Congrats on 15 years! Wish i had found Sooner! I am a newby to fashion at 62 and learn so much and enjoy your posts a lot. My Favourite are when you take about 10 tries to come up with a look you like. This is me, without the wisdom to know what is wrong. It is Hit and miss. . with your “Tutorial” i have a better chance at Fixing my outfit up. Thank you!

  5. Kudos to you! I’ve only been following you for about one year so I really enjoyed the photos from the past. Your blog is my favorite as your style is similar to mine. Here’s to another 15 years!!!!!

  6. I loved the post today and looking back where you started. I always love to see how people found, or made their niche. Referring to Cyndi’s blog today, you have definitely become an Influencer. I like your style and choices to share with us, and appreciate that most things are within my budget. And the items that are not, I will pay more attention when you say “Nordstrom Sale!”
    One little trend question, OK got it, skinny jeans out for the most part – but when will front tucks go out? They are becoming too obvious and look contrived to me now.

    1. LOL, I get you. I’ve always felt that way about them, honestly, but they will stick around until designers start making tops that have some structure and are a friendly length to most of us when left untucked. The shorter tops coming back into style is a start. But the long, boxy tops need a front tuck, or you have no shape.

  7. Congratulations! Your sense of style is impeccable. At 61, and with your guidance from your blog, I am dressing tastefully both on the job and at home. Thank you!

  8. I started reading your blog about 3 years ago when I had lost 75 pounds and was looking for fashion for over 40’s. And there you were the exact same height, (now) weight, and importantly bra size! My adult daughters will compliment me on something and I’ll say “Thanks it’s….” And they’ll say “ something Jo-Lynne showed you?” Yep!

  9. Congratulations – what a great story! (Thanks for sticking with it.) Can you imagine what the next 15 will look like!?

  10. Thank you! I found your blog when I was approaching 40 and had no idea how to wear jeans with ankle booties. I’ve especially appreciated seeing you in outfits that often are shown on the store’s website with models that are nothing close to my age or body type. I’ve learned lots of great classy tips from you, and how to thrive as a middle age mom. It’s true, there really isn’t much of a market to help us with that. Congratulations!

  11. Congratulations!!! You were my first Blogger to follow and even tho we do not know each other ,I feel like you are my friend.😀

  12. Dear Jo-Lynne,
    I’m so glad I found your blog. You have great content and I enjoy your humor! Plus I share your love of coffee.
    Cheers to your success and many years to come.

  13. Congratulations! I love your blog! It’s the perfect format because you add that little extra in tips & tricks to making a piece work or how it could be better, the latest trends and how we as mature women can translate a particular trend, and so much more. Inviting us into your life has created a bond between you and your readers.
    Here’s to another 15 years! 🥂

  14. Wow!!! Congratulations! Really enjoyed reading about your journey! You’ve definitely found your “niche “ and your have a way with words! I always enjoy your posts! And yes, 🥂 to another 15 years! You do it well!!

  15. Congrats! You have helped me refine my own style. Thank you for being honest & real. My favorite blogger/influencer/private stylist!

  16. Congratulations on 15 years! I’ve been reading your blog for about 5 or 6 years now and I can honestly say that I have learned so much from you when it comes to personal style. I’m quite a bit shorter than you (at 5 feet tall) but I have a very similar body type. I know when something looks good on you, it will most likely work for me and I’ve ordered many things successfully based on your recommendations. So thank you! Here’s to your continued success in the blogging world!

  17. I have only followed you for the past year or so. It was fun to look back and see how your blog has evolved. Congratulations on 15 years…and to many more years!

  18. Congratulations!!! I have been following you and your blog for about 9 years and enjoy it so much! I look forward to seeing what the next 15 years bring for you!!!!

  19. Jo-Lynne, Congratulations on your anniversary. Looking forward to your continued guidance with my clothing choices and style. I love how candid you are about how you chose items that worked and how some didn’t. I am in my 60’s, but I appreciate your advice and adapt my clothing choices for my age. You are helping me to look modern and classy.

  20. Thanks for sharing your journey Jo-Lynne, it’s very interesting. I started following you in ’16 or ’17 to learn when to cuff my jeans with booties! Lots of good info since then.

    Looking forward to many more posts.
    With regards,
    Lisa P

  21. This is significant! Congratulations on all of your accomplishments. I honestly didn’t know there were blogs 15 years ago! Very, very well done!

  22. Jo-Lynne, I am so grateful for you. You really are the “girl friend” of the blogosphere. I look forward to your posts every day, because they remind me that good people are out there, and “normal” is still alive and well in this world!
    I love your fashion advice. I also love your daily musings. It’s so nice to hear from someone who experiences the same joys and struggles that I do. Please keep doing what you’re doing! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your blog!

  23. Congratulations on 15 years! It was fun to read about your journey and how you got started. I’m so glad I discovered you a few years ago. I’ve learned so much! And I feel
    like I found a new friend along the way, too. Here’s to many more years!

  24. Congratulations on your fifteen year anniversary! I’ve watched and cheered you on for quite a while (I’m not sure I go back to the beginning, but pretty close). I don’t comment often these days, but I’m following and you’re still my go to for fashion advice. You have no idea how much you’ve helped me and how grateful I am! Wishing you all the best for many more years to come!

  25. Congratulations Jo-lynne! You are my favorite blogger and I’ve been following you for 5 years. Thank you for keeping it real and sharing your journey with us! It was fun being to able to look back and see how it all started. Looking foward to the next 15.

  26. Oh wow!!!! That was such a great post. So fun to hear all about all you’ve gotten to see and do over the years. Your kids were so little when you started. Such a cute picture. I think when we are young at home, alone, raising little ones….. I had 3 too, we need community and have a need for connection. Neat how the blog started for you then. I should go back in the archives and read some of the old ones. :). Happy Blogiversary. You do a great job at it and I enjoy readying it each morning and will continue to as long as you are here. Do you ever miss being a school teacher?

    1. I loved teaching, but I only had my own classroom for two years. I really wish I’d been able to start sooner so I had a few more years under my belt, but I knew when I left, I probably wouldn’t go back. Teaching took everything I had — emotionally, mentally, physically. I remember saying to Paul that I could never do it and raise my own kids. And nowadays, it’s gotten so much harder in so many ways. My hat is off to all the teachers out there, especially those juggling teaching with family life. It takes a very special person to do that and do it well.

  27. I love what you do. In the last year you have been my go-to sense of normalcy that says it’s still worth it to take care of myself. The confidence in getting what-to-wear decided somehow helps me with everything else the day brings. You are a blessing and delight every day!

  28. Congratulations Jo-Lynne 15 years is quite an accomplishment!! Your 3 adorable children are grown now!! Wow!! Thank you for sharing your journey and for all the photos and for all you have done for us!!!
    God bless you and your family!

  29. WOW! As an old saying goes, You’ve come a long way baby! It was so much fun reading about some of the great opportunities and experiences you have had since you started blogging in 2006. What did you do on the Dr. Oz Show? I like the outfit in the picture from Oct. 2016. In 2021, are there any changes you would make to that outfit? I hope that you have a fabulous Sunday!

    1. I was invited to be a participant in a recipe contest. I made a healthy version of the Philly cheesesteak. There were 3 of us, and he tried each of our dishes on stage and chose a winner. I won, lol! It was silly, but fun. 🙂

      I like that outfit too. I would probably wear a shorter, layered necklace, and it would be more on trend to full-tuck the tank top all the way around, but as we know, that’s not the best look for me. I think the proportions look good in that picture, actually.

  30. Congratulations! This was a fun look back. You are my fave and one of only two I trust and follow consistently. Keep growing, evolving and doing what you do, as you do it quite well!

  31. I think I started following you in 2016 and I enjoy your blog as much now as back then. Here’s to another 15!🍷

  32. I don’t remember exactly when I started following you, but you were still blogging under Musings of a Housewife, so it’s been a while. I started following several bloggers around that time and you are the only one I still follow! 🙂 Congratulations on this milestone and thank you for what you do! 🙂🙂

  33. Congratulations on 15 years! 🌟🙌🏻 I was trying to remember what year I discovered you on Pinterest …..I think it was 2019. I love opening your blog posts with my morning coffee to see what new fashion finds you’re trying and to hear about your latest adventure. What I really think is great is how you have encouraged and nurtured a wonderful community of followers here; the women who comment on your posts all seem like genuine, caring, and fun people! Keep doing YOU! God Bless and cheers to 15 more years!

    1. Heather said it so well: not only is your blog a fun part of my day but it also attracts a community of kind hearted women. CONGRATULATIONS on your 15th blog ANNIVERSARY! 🥂 You Haven’T changed one bit.

  34. Congratulations Jo-Lynne! I have your 25 days of summer fashion with Cyndi to thank for coming across your blog and haven’t looked back. Believe it or not I didn’t really get on board with Instagram until a few years ago and have enjoyed it ever since! It’s so nice to hear the bloggers I follow speak. I know that sounds crazy but I enjoy all the different accents! And seeing the try ons is a real help for the fashion! Thank you for this space and sharing with us daily! I was quite impressed with all the fun things you’ve got to do and people you’ve meet because of this occupation!!! Didn’t know you were a celebrity 😉💕
    Cheers to many more years!

  35. I want to join in with the others and congratulate you on 15 years of blogging. I always look forward to opening your emails. Cheers to you!

  36. Congratulations! I really enjoy your blog.. you make fashion fun and interesting.wishing you many more successful years blogging.

  37. Happy Blogaversary! I remember many of these events and photos. I even remember Musings! Keep on keeping on!

  38. Congratulations Jolynne! What a fantastic accomplishment! I’ve been following for a couple years and I really look forward to reading your emails and blog and every day. Your voice is so clear, grounded, helpful and authentic. Thank you for all you do and share!

  39. Congratulations, I like to use your blog to shop my closet and mix and match in new ways. On a side note, I grew up in Hapeville, home of the original Chick fil a. They are fixing to tear it down and rebuild. We were able to make reservations and eat there one last time. They will be preserving some of the orgional elements and adding a museum. So, if you are ever back through Atlanta you should check it out. Now you can say you ate there before they tore down the orgional.

  40. Happy “Blogiversary “ Jo-Lynne! And many happy returns of the day! I am so thankful I found you and look forward to reading your blog each day! Bless you❤️

  41. Love your content and love your heart! I’ve been following you for many years. Congratulations JoLynne!

  42. I don’t know when I started reading your blog but so enjoy it and have gotten some great fashion/beauty recommendations from you. Thank you for a great blog!

  43. I’ve so enjoyed seeing your emails in my Inbox, whether it’s fashion, family, or faith, you always present your message in a relatable, genuine and friendly way.
    Thanks for including us all in your journey and Congratulations on 15 years blogging! Cheers to many more…

  44. Happy Anniversary! Loved reading your story. Many more great years! Love your blog, fashion, advice, and sharing yourself with us All! Thank you to you and your family.🤗

  45. Congratulations Jolynne! Do you ever age? You look exactly the same as when you started! Beautiful! I read your blog everyday and have bought quite a few things from recommendations. But what I love best about your blog is your honesty. About your life and fashion. Carry on JoLynne!!

  48. Jo-Lynne, I think of you as a friend. I’ve prayed for you and your family. I found you and Cyndi at the same time, not sure when that was exactly. I enjoy your honesty and fashion! Congratulations 🎈🥂💐

  49. Congratulations! I love your blog. Thank you so much for the wonderful service you provide!!! I do truly appreciate how you give so much detail and personal thoughts about all of your content, unlike other bloggers who just show a photo and a few sentences! Thank you!!

  50. Cheers to your success! I’m glad I found your blog. I thoroughly enjoy reading your content…about clothing and about life’s happenings. My personal style is much like yours so I look forward to your posts. Here’s to many more years! Blessings! 🙂

  51. Happy Blogiversary! I discovered in 2015 under the same name you use now for your blog. I’ve enjoyed getting to know the online Jo-Lynne and learning from you. Wishing you many more years of success.

  52. So happy for you!!!
    You hv advised me on fashion through weddings of my children, ,
    Work events and vacations.
    Thank you!
    I celebrate 35 years at my work tomorrow… boy hv we also seen
    many changes.

  53. Happy #15! Time flies, doesn’t it? I first started reading your blog when you turned 40, it was a big milestone!! Loved reading this Coffee Talk today and seeing the progression over the many years. I must say I read your blog every morning, and really miss it when you skip a day which is very rare! When I need to order something from Nordstroms or many other retailers, yours is the blog I go to to be sure I get onto your page to give you credit for a sale!! Have always appreciated your faith journey and also your IF journey, both are inspiring to me. Keep up the good work, you are a bright spot in my day!!

  54. Congratulations on your 15th year blogging, Jo-Lynne! I knew there were blogs around back then and used to follow a few but not any lifestyle/fashion. So glad I found yours! You have definitely helped me to elevate my fashion game – thank you.

  55. Wow! Starting a blog is one thing but maintaining it with enthusiasm for this long is something else. Congrats!!!!

  56. I just started following your blog within the past few months, so I had no idea you’ve been at it for 15 years – Congratulations! Longevity in this digital age rarely seems to exist, so obviously you’ve figured out the secret to staying power. I’m not a mom, but I’m in my mid-40s and I really enjoy and appreciate your fashion tips and pics – it’s so helpful to see what’s trending around the country from my limited northern MN vantage point. Here’s to another 15 – and beyond!

  57. What an exciting journey! Congratulations Jo-Lynne! I found your blog along with Cyndi Spivey back in 2015 recovering from breast cancer/reconstruction. I wanted to keep up with the fashion trends for when I could go shopping once everything was done. I had no idea at the time that I would be eventually start a fashion blog shortly thereafter! Thank you for being such a positive inspiration and influencer!

  58. I enjoyed reading this today Jo-lynne. You have come a long way!!! I think I started following you in 2014.

  59. Congratulations, Jo-Lynne!! I can’t remember exactly when I found your blog but so glad I did!! I look forward to it every day and love that you share your personal life and your faith along with great fashion advice!! Thank you for sharing your journey!! Blessings!!

  60. Thank you so much for providing such detailed and helpful information. So much of what I wear as well as many items in my home (rugs, lamps and curtains) are a result of your blog. Congratulations on this 15 year milestone. I appreciate you!

  61. Congratulations on 15 yrs! I’ve been around for at least 5 and look forward to “seeing” you daily. You keep it real and relatable! So fun to see how you started!

  62. Congratulations !!!
    I enjoy reading your blog everyday!!! Thanks for your wonderful fashion ideas and advice!!
    Cheers to you!!!

  63. It was so much fun to read about the history of your blog!! I found you in 2014 after having my 3rd baby and I was asked to join a Board and suddenly had to dress for events and meetings after being out of the workforce for 9 years. My closet was hodgepodge of all the crazy different-sized & maternity/nursing clothes that got me through pregnancies & infancies, along with the outdated pieces from my full time attorney days. I had no idea what to wear & zero time for shopping. Someone told me to find a fashion blogger who is about the same size and style. I searched and searched and then saw you were 5’5 and started following. And I didn’t realize you lived in the same area for months, b/c I was looking at the clothes and placing orders on the links and that was all I had time to do. One day you mentioned you were at the KOP Mall and I was like “No Way!” Lol. You have saved me so much time and energy and I cannot thank you enough for helping me get it together!! I also have to laugh b/c I had the EXACT same haircut as in your Olay ad back in 2008 or so. I remember taking a People magazine photo of Jenny McCarthy’s haircut to my hairdresser. Congratulations on 15 years! And thank you, thank you, thank you!!

  64. I think you have done a truly excellent job of creating a space that is authentic and both gives advice and allows us to ask for it. I love the way you share not just about fashion. But about your family and your life. You are the reason I started IF and I am grateful! Thank you for all of it.

  65. Congratulations Jo-Lynne! I appreciate your blog! I love learning new things when it comes to fashion and your blog helps me understand the “science” behind a good outfit. Also, I would never tackle the Nordstrom sales without you! I have very few stores where I live so I must shop online. I value your recommendations on what to buy to have a “happy” closet! Wishing you many more years of blogging!

  66. Congratulations on your success!!!! You found your niche and you never gave up!!! I’m “fairly” new to your blog (Inever knew you as the “Musing Housewife”) and I love the practical advice you give on fashion. I love that you share a mix of high end and less expensive items, and you’re ALWAYS HONEST about the products. Keep sharing !!!!!

  67. Wow-thanks for sharing a bit of your history with us. Congratulations on your success and the journey!
    I started following you about six years ago when you were on a summer fashion collab with Cyndi Spivey. I was needing to return to the workforce and greatly needed some fashion inspiration that Pinterest didn’t quite address at the time. Along the way I discovered how helpful it was that you and I are almost the exact same size. (Angels singing) 😇 I could look at a garment on you and know if it was going to fit me or not- yay!
    Thank you for all your help and for answering questions and providing us all with current information in the fashion and beauty world.
    Wishing you all the best!

  68. Congratulations Jo-Lynne! That is truly a big accomplishments! So enjoy your blog each day. May you have continued success.

  69. You have had an awesome 15 years, Jo-Lynne! Congratulations! Can’t wait to see what the next 15 bring! XO

  70. I started reading your blog in 2007 when I was pregnant with A (!!!!!). I found you through a mutual friend’s blog (someone who I knew from high school because I was friends with her younger sister). I remembered you from meeting you at my parents’ house a few times when you were in a Bible Study meeting there. Anywho, here we are 14 years later and I still read many days! Happy happy Blogaversary!

  71. Congratulations! I have enjoyed your blog for many, many years!
    Thanks for al the great content! Cheers!!

  72. Congratulations! I think I’ve been following you for a little over a year now. I thoroughly enjoy your posts and am a devoted follower! I’m a little late with this because when I went to comment yesterday I had to deal with the “all caps” thing! Ha!!

  73. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. You have done an amazing job. Looking forward to reading the next 15!

  74. Congrats on 15 years! I’ve been reading your blog for what seems like forever!! I love all your fashion posts but my favorite are always the Coffee Talk posts. I look forward to them every weekend. You are appreciated!

  75. Congratulations on 15 years, how exciting! I came to your blog years ago and stayed ever since. I think it was through a link w Kendi Everyday! I really enjoyed your conversational style of blog and related to you on family (I have three girls similar ages) and still do! You feel like a long time girlfriend and I look forward to following along for many more years!

  76. Congratulations! I remember that old header from the beginning. Blogging wasn’t quite the same path here. I don’t think Canadian blogging took quite the same route? But at any rate I’m so happy that you were able to turn it into an actual business and are flourishing. What fun you’ve had for all your hard work!

  77. As per usual I’m way behind reading posts but oh my, this made me quite emotional. I have been following you for about half of your 15 years and you are my go-to for all advice clothing-related. It’s amazing how every time I buy a piece of clothing or put a new outfit together I have your advice in the back of my mind. Whether it’s about proportions or colour combinations or accessorising or trends or literally anything else I think of you 🙂 Thank you so much for all you do, the passion you do it with, for sharing your world and for making ours a little bit better everyday. With best wishes for the next 15 years and beyond from me way way way away!
