I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now but I never really had the time to focus on it because it requires a lot of time and flashbacks. But, I’m writing it now. This post will be talking about my experience as a blogger; which hopefully most bloggers can relate to, how far I’ve gone, what I’ve achieved and hope to achieve, and how the journey has been so far. I’ll try to make it short.
I remember the date and the time I created my blog because it was the beginning of a new chapter for me. On September 4th, 2016, at exactly 1am (4 months ago), I created my blog which has since grown over time into something I love and value so much. I can’t give a real estimate of my followers because it increases by the day, but at the moment, it’s 1,269 or preferably, 1.2k, with my total views amounting to over 28k. Like most bloggers, I spent hours trying to grow my blog, but first, I had to learn everything I could which was quite useful. My nosey attitude paid off😅 I formulated my own techniques, which I no longer use. I won’t really say I had sleepless nights because I enjoy sleeping late but all the same, I slept late trying to improve as a blogger. And it paid off.
I have to admit that when I started, I was contented with 10 likes on a post, I was happy getting up to 40 views in a day, and which each follower I got no matter how small. Now, with over 1k followers, I realise that as a blogger, I can post whatever I want and still get likes as well as comments; even when I feel like my post isn’t good enough, or it’s just weird. I still put some effort into my post, and it isn’t always great on my blog, especially because of the new wp issues I have to deal with. It has been an amazing 4 months, with having so many blogger friends from different parts of the world, having people who admire my work and my effort, and people who look up to me. It really isn’t that easy juggling school work, house chores, and blogging, but I try my best to keep up. My main secret is simply being myself, the crazy and funny me, I can’t even try to change; mostly because it’s a lot of work.
Thankfully, my blog now has an app on play store which is my biggest achievement so far. I recently learned how to create an ad banner; it took a lot of time but I was way to persistent to give up, and I got it right. Through my blog, I’ve learned so many things from the internet, things I never knew about. And I did almost everything by myself, through God’s help. And I plan to buy a domain pretty soon so I can have full control of, and own my blog.
Am I thankful? Probably!😅Just kidding, I’m really thankful. First, to God, secondly, to my weird nature which has helped, and lastly, to my blogger friends, readers and supporters. I’ll stop here because this post is already long, and I hate long post. Also because I sound too serious, and that bores me!
I should probably write a memoir someday😀 or not😅
