About

Selfie of Madalyn.

Hi, y'all! Welcome to the blog! My Life As Madalyn is, what I like to call, a hodgepodge blog. I choose to call it that because of how assorted the content is. I share a lot of things from many different categories because I just can't be limited to one thing, ya know?

hodge●podge
/'häj, päj/ noun
a confused mixture.

First, a little back story about how my blog came to be. It all started back in 2015. June to be more precise. I had wanted to share content on a platform but I couldn't figure out the right fit for me. When I came across the blogging world I figured that it was a good starting point to put myself out there and put into action the ideas that I had been thinking about in previous years.

At first, I didn't really know, let alone understand, the whole blogging world. I didn't know that there was a community of bloggers and readers and I didn't understand the ins and outs of running a successful blog. As time has gone on and as I have found myself trying to constantly improve my blog and brand, I think I can now say that I know a lot more than I did back then–but I am still learning every day.

So, what I'm trying to say is this: there are many different aspects of life and my blog is a representation of that. I might share a recipe in one post and an inspirational message in the next. I can't guarantee what my next post will be about but I can say that it is what makes my blog my blog. A hodgepodge blog.

If you want an idea of what I write about then here are the categories that I have posted about in the past: faith, lifestyle, fashion, beauty, food, photography, business, college, photography, and fitness. I also talk about life experiences and sometimes I write about the latest DIY projects that I have been working on!

No matter what my next post entails, you can be confident that it is from my heart. My focus with this blog is on fostering a tight-knit community of readers that support positive, meaningful, and Kingdom-focused lives. I hope that whenever you read a post, you feel invited in as if catching up with a close friend.

Now, if you want to know a little about me then here it goes. Hi, I am Madalyn though my friends call me Maddie. I am a 22-year-old from the great state of Texas (Austin) who loves Jesus, family, and making good memories. I want to live life to the fullest (my favorite Bible verse is John 10:10!) and share my experiences along the way. My time is spent between many things a few being my family, friends, two cats, my blog (the one you're reading), college (I study communication at Texas State University), church, the Texas State chapter of Delight Ministries, and my businesses. I have an online store (Adorned With Delight) that I run, a photography business (Madalyn Dobbs Photography), and I offer a few different creative services including event planning and website management.

Ever since I started this blogging journey I knew that things would change. Minds change, new ideas start to sprout, and life happens. The next time you read this it might be a little different and I might be in a totally new chapter of my life but all I can say is be prepared and let's see what the Lord has planned for the next crazy ride.

Read until now? High-five for you! Now that you know a little bit about what you can expect on the blog are you wondering where you should start? Check out the slider on the homepage as I try to keep it frequently updated!

Want to know when I post? Even though it doesn't always work out, I try to post on Wednesdays and Sundays (sometimes there might be a surprise post!). So what do you do if you really don't want to miss a new post and you want to be notified when a new one goes live? You can follow by email! There is a widget in the sidebar to follow along and you can also click this link to sign up. Once you sign up you will receive all new posts and announcements in your email inbox.

If you want to keep up with me and be really in the loop then you can follow me on social media as I am frequently on it. Click the icons in the top right of the screen and they will take you to each account.

Lastly, have a question or just want to chat? You can check out the contact page here or you can DM me on social media. I try to reply as quickly as possible!

I am so happy that you have visited my blog and I hope that you will stick around. I'd love to have you a part of the community! ♥
