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!

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.

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!

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.
