The Flourish Market - ethical fall fashion, casual style (1)


  1. Molly this was such a great post! I loved seeing all of your pictures and your unique journey to blogging! You have such a great story to share and I’m glad you shared it with us! Keep up the good work girlie 🙂

  2. What’s not to love? Your style of writing draws us into your world. You ‘include’ us. You make us feel as though we are sitting at a table conversing with you, like we have known you our whole life. …I mean really, how cool is that? yeh, you are “So cool right now. So. So. Cool.” “Seriously.” 🙂

  3. Timely post for me! I’m about to hire a web designer to give my blog a new, fresh look and push full steam ahead. Having 3 little ones makes it really difficult to spend much time on it. But I am determined! 🙂

  4. I loved reading this, Molly! I always wonder what roads people have taken to get them where they are today, and reading about your journey was both entertaining and inspirational. I started a personal blog back in the late 2000s on blogger that I don’t think I told anyone else about it. It was fun but I never imagined I would ever be a blogger. Even now I have a hard time considering myself a blogger, as anymore more than a person who blogs. Since getting laid off from my job last month, I’ve been thinking more and more about whether I could (and would want to) try to take my blog further and if I should rebrand and whatnot. It’s a big decision so we’ll see what happens. But thanks for sharing your journey.

  5. Loved reading this post! It’s definitely encouraging, to know that it wasn’t a quick run for you and that you’ve been able to be so successful through it! I’m definitely on that long journey, but I have high hopes that it’ll be worth it in the end:) I launched my first product yesterday – a devotional! – and I never would’ve had the confidence to do that without blogging. so here’s to growth and opportunity and allll the blessings that blogging is:)!

  6. I love this! I’ve blogged on and off for 4 years. When I say on and off, it was mostly super on and then super off for like a year. My last job was in-sane (60-70 hours) and when I changed jobs and had a life again, I decided it was time to either do it or not do it. So I’ve been blogging 3 days a week consistently for about 4 months. Your class I took at Skill Pop really helped me get through some of my hurdles and find ways to make this work for me. Working in federal regs, I need some creativity in my life! I love it and hope I continue with it!

  7. Every blogger who’s been blogging as long as we have should be required to do this kind of post because this is priceless. I remember most of these pictures! I remember thinking they were awesome too!! Man. I am SO GLAD the trend of blogging overly-filtered instagram pictures is behind us (the whole blogging world, I mean). So glad. I too started in the LiveJournal days, hopped to blogger, then to my own wordpress site and have gone through all kinds of phases. There was even a time when I posted twice a day. Like what? Why? And people were upset when I went back to one post a day! Too funny.
