Welp, guys, it’s official. I have been blogging for one year!!!
One year of blogging. Blogiversary. Today, lil bloggy turns 1.
When I was younger I started reading blogs. Younger as in approximately seven. I read them voraciously. I had a whole list that I would go check a few times a week. All that time, I desperately wanted my own. And I almost started one once when I was about nine (like that would have gone well). And then it fell through for some reason and I didn’t really think about blogging again until I was about eleven or twelve, when I stumbled across the blogs of a few people in my age group and realized Hey, people read the blogs of people like me–a general nobody, just trying to survive this crazy world. That’s cool.
So, on May 9th, 2017, I started my first blog and uploaded the first post at 11:30 PM. At the time, I was almost fifteen years old. My first post was a mess (as has been every post since). I still don’t know how to write a decent looking ‘about me’ page, and my beliefs page badly needs redone. But those can wait.
Right now, I’m still discovering the joy blogging gives–the rush when I come up with an idea for a stellar new post. The happy comments you leave me that make me squeal a little and smile and remember why I started. The joy of sharing my thoughts with the world. And I don’t ever want to lose that simple, pure, unadulterated happiness. Which is kind of stupid, I know–but I’m a writer. What can I say? 😉
So. What gives you joy? And did you like the revival of my old theme? Just kidding–I was very disappointed to find out this morning that WordPress no longer supplies it. 😦 Oh well…. ;D
