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.
Behind the scenes
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!
A moment of gratitude
I appreciate what I have, I’ve had a wild ride. I’m glad that everything I threw at the wall worked somehow and got me here now. I had my ups and downs, my moments of doubt where I didn’t know why I did what I did. So a post like this reminds me of why I started to blog to begin with.
What blogging has done for me
Blogging has opened doors for me, given me advantage where I had none, I actually had people calling wanting to hire me, just because they liked what I write on the blog! How did I improve my writing? Via blogging, talk about organic reach!
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.
