Happy Wednesday everyone,
I have officially been blogging for two whole years! Although recently I haven’t been consistently posting every week, since starting my new job I’m still trying to find balance. But, I am so proud of the fact that I have been committed to this blog for two years!
Cheers to two years… 24 months… 104 weeks! My baby is two y’all!
This blog has provided a writing outlet that I am proud of. I have been on a crazy roller coaster ride these past two years and my readers have stuck with me through it all. I have been able to post my personal journey, events, business ventures, fictional short stories, poems and tutorials. It’s hard to believe that at one point in my life I was terrified to share my writing with anyone outside of my close friend group. My own family had no idea about a lot of my writing. I’ve always felt that part of me was so personal and I wasn’t comfortable being this vulnerable and sharing my thoughts with others.
When I first started this blog I was obsessed with the numbers, the followers, the views, and the growth. Now I am more interested in just sharing my gift and being able to touch someone else. I am still so amazed by new followers and international readers but my focus isn’t to be super popular or have a huge cult following. These days I’m more interested in authenticity and connecting with real genuine support. The inspiration I gain from real people with real stories is unmatched.
When I started this blog I was working for a law firm in SF since then I have started and left multiple job positions. I went from posting my first blog while couch surfing to moving into my own studio to now living in a one bedroom apartment with my partner. This blog has provided a space for me to celebrate the wins, mourn the losses and find motivation in the struggle.
This year alone has been one of the hardest dealing with losing my grandma. In the past my way of coping with deaths and pain was through isolation. I hid those feelings from the outside world. This platform has not only challenged me to be more open but it has taught me how to better communicate.
