What a journey, what a milestone! So much to talk about, so much to celebrate! I know, I know! I said I will only celebrate the most important milestones, etc: 500K, 1 million views and what not, but honestly who can wait that long?!
I’ve been meaning to talk about something for a while, so now is a perfect time to address it.
7 years in the making
You may know that I’ve been blogging for nearly 7 years, a lot of people admire how consistent I am with writing, and some wonder: How on earth am I so persistent with writing? I’ve blogged about being a consistent blogger a few years back. But I myself don’t follow those tips to the bone. I could sit and draft ten posts in one super brainstorm session and then stop for a month (especially if I’m busy with work), and I sometimes post daily, I don’t have a regular flow.
I am consistently quitting and falling, I’m just good at getting back up, rekindling the flame of passion and moving forward without anyone witnessing luckily, blogging to me isn’t a fad or a phase, it’s a second nature now.
Behind the scenes
My readers have no idea how many times I came close to calling the whole thing off! I am ashamed to admit that I’ve went for months and for nearly for a whole year without publishing a single post.. For shame! And yet here I am, 400,000 views, 460 posts , and 7 years after it began. Somehow still going and still standing.
I know that 400,000 views aren’t much, some blogs achieve that in a month, and bigger sites get that in a day, and you know what? I don’t care!
I’m grateful to be able to share a piece of my mind with the masses, connect with people from all over the world. Share knowledge and make a difference in people’s lives. If someone told me 10 years before that I’d be able to do that sitting at my desk I’d laugh at them! But here we are!
I can’t give up writing, I need writing! Writing is how I express myself.. I write to breath, I write to think, to fly and to dream. If I give up writing the world won’t lose much, but I would lose a whole lot!
Thank you for being a part of my world, for sharing my ups and downs. For making this fantastic journey possible, it wasn’t easy; I’d call it bitter – sweet. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
