Hello and welcome back for another blog post!
Today is just a really special day!
My blog finally turns 1 today! *throws confetti everywhere*
Time flies real fast, 12 months have finally passed and now I’m facing the real deal. I’m now blogging for over a year now folks!
I’ve actually written a blog post back then during my first month of being a book blogger, click here if you want to read the post: 1 MONTH BLOG CELEBRATION + REALIZATIONS. I can’t believe I was so innocent back then, my old self being so happy and excited about his first month in blogging and actually made a blog post about it is just hilarious I CAN’T LMAO.
I’ve read my blog realizations post back then, and even if I still believe in some of them, after over a year of blogging my perception about the whole blogging community changed a bit. There’s a couple of add-ons and that’s what we’re going to talk about today!
So far, this blog has reached over 1,853 views, 1,107 visitors, 563 likes and estimated 1,041 amazing people who follows this blog! Thank you so much!
Here are a couple of my realizations about blogging:
- YOUR BLOG IS SOMETHING YOU SHOULD BE PROUD OF
Whether you’re just starting, or you’ve been in the game for years now, always feel proud of what you’ve reached and what you become. All the hard work, time, and effort you put into making your blog is commendable and something to be proud of! Likes, follows, and all statistical numbers doesn’t matter. Always strive to do your passion regardless of what the society dictates you!
Writing/Blogging, just like drawing, singing, dancing, and public speaking is something which could be regarded as art! It’s basically the art of forming words to create meaning, as means of expressing descriptively or critically! Be proud of yourself!
- WRITING IS VERY THERAPEUTIC
I really can’t stress this enough; I’ve always emphasized the importance of writing to all of my friends. Writing down your thoughts and feelings feels good and is such a great outlet of letting out toxic and suppressed hurt and pain. My blog has become not just a simple website, but also a friend. Metaphorically speaking, it became my friend to whom I share my experiences with, a friend without judgement and criticisms.
It greatly helped me to balance my physical and mental well-being. I could never imagine surviving the past year without the presence of my blog to keep me sane and intact.
- YOU DON’T REALLY RUN OUT OF BLOGGING IDEAS
This is such a very bold statement, but I just realized this not long ago. Ever since I started blogging, I never run out of ideas and concepts to be written. All of the ideas are overflowing my brain is overloaded and excited at the same time. Book blogging or blogging in general provides a wide range of topics to be tackled about, you’ll not run out of ideas!
You may ask why I haven’t posted that much even with the surplus of ideas, it’s because of procrastination. Writer’s block? It doesn’t exist. It’s just an excuse of everyone for not writing. It’s either you choose to write or not write. That simple. (Well, other factors such as time and others is still considered, but most of the time is just us being lazy lmao)
P.S. Just in case it takes weeks or months for me to post a blog post, that’s because life’s really busy and college life is killing me slowly lol.
- THE WHOLE COMMUNITY IS A FAMILY
I don’t want to tag specific people because I’m afraid I might forget a lot of precious people. But y’all know who you are! Everyone whom I interacted here on my blog, on Twitter or Instagram, for even just a slightest interaction is considered to be family! Blogging gave me the opportunity to meet a lot of book bloggers around the world, to meet hundreds of people who has the same interests as me. I couldn’t thank you all enough for making my 1 year of blogging so fun and exciting! Love you guys!
Thank you as well to TheWriteReads gang for being so supportive as ever! To Dave for exerting all the effort and hard work, we appreciate you! I’m just really blessed to be part of this growing community of bloggers! Click here if you want to join the gang!
I always would like to thank all my friends in real life who supported me and always believed in my capabilities. I don’t know if any of y’all are reading this, but if you happened to be, I’d like to give you my biggest gratitude! Thank you!
Thanks for dropping by! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for all of us! More memories to come and always continue doing what you love!
