Today is a very important day to me. Why? Because it is the one-year anniversary of when I started my blog! Yay to me! In all seriousness though, this day is important to me because of my passion for writing. I started this blog as a way to express my thoughts, spread some positivity, share my favorite music, stuff like that.
Honestly though, when I first started this blog, I had no idea about how to blog. I had no expectations of anyone ever reading it. And I definitely had no expectations on gaining any followers and people who enjoy reading my stuff. I appreciate it all.
This was just a way for me to express myself, get things off of my chest. I love writing and I hate speaking. I am not a verbal person, by any means of the world. I hate talking. When I talk, I tend to think to much about what I am saying and I worry about how I sound, if I make sense, etc. However, when I write, I am able to freely express myself. I’m not second-guessing my thoughts, and I’m not generally worried about what I am saying. Something about pressing my pen to the paper just makes me feel good. It allows me to get creative and I like to take advantage of that.
In one year’s time, my blog has blossomed into more than what I ever thought it would. Granted, for the sake of my own personal goals, my blog has a little ways to go, but I’m satisfied with it at this current point. At the beginning, I told my family and friends about my idea for a blog and they were all supportive. But when I found out that other people were reading it and enjoying what I had to say, it made me feel that much better. There are days when I wish I had more time to devote to my blog, but I vow to make a change for that in the next year.
But thank you to everyone who has read my blog, supported it, encouraged me, enjoyed what I had to say, even if you scroll on it occasionally. I appreciate it all.
Thank you. 🙂
