About


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 type, ya know? Plus there is more to share than just beauty or just food in my opinion.

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

I guess I will share 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 begin sharing content on a platform but I couldn't figure out the right fit for me. I then finally came across a blog and figured that it was a good starting point for putting myself out there and was a good place for me to start putting into action the ideas that I had been thinking about within those last few 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.

I guess what I am trying to say is this: life is messy and so am I. There are many different aspects of life and my blog is a good representation of that. I might share a recipe one post and an inspirational message 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 some categories that I have posted about in the past: faith, lifestyle, fashion, beauty, food, and fitness. I also talk about life experiences and sometimes I write about the latest DIY projects that I have been working on.

If you want to know a little about me then here it goes. Hi, I am Madalyn though I also go by Maddie. I am a 20-year-old from the great state of Texas who loves Jesus, family and making good memories. I want to live life to the fullest and share my experiences along the way. My time is spent between many things a few being my blog (the one you're reading), college (where I study communication and ASL), and my businesses. I have an online store (Adorned With Delight) that I run at adornedwithdelight.com, a photography business (Madalyn Dobbs Photography), and I offer a few different creative services including event planning and a variety of business services.

Ever since I started this journey (and even before) I knew that things would change. My mind changes constantly, new ideas start to sprout, and life happens. The next time you read this it might be completely 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.
