Three year anniversary of blogging

Last year’s birthday cake

Tomorrow it’s been 3 years since I started this blog. Here’s the first post.

I actually started to blog more in 2014 after my mother died but I count from March 27, 2013. A lot has happened after that when it comes to blogging. I never thought I would still do it. There had been times I felt like quitting or at least not call myself a blogger.

One of the reasons I still do this is all of you out there in the blogging world. Not just you who follow me and read this but also blogging in general. Seeing others blogs and the support I get from time to time, has inspired me to continue. Even if no one did read, writing is good therapy. You don’t need thousands of followers to blog. It’s about the quality and not the quantity. I’ve always prefered a smaller crowd. It’s more intimate. I don’t blog to get fame, I write because that’s what makes me feel better. If someone can relate to me, then I’ve done something right.

There’s a lot of tips online how to improve your blog or how to gain followers. Those are useful tips. If you’re aiming for a career in blogging or investing in your business that is. For an ordinary blogger those are not that important. Maybe for some but not me. If I get at least one like or comment, it saves my day. Sometimes I do wish my posts would get more comments but the subjects I write about doesn’t create that much talk.

I started blogging to improve and practise my English. Maybe I’ve got the grammars wrong but no one has paid attention so I guess not. As long as people understand what I write about, that what matters. If I didn’t have this blog, I would still write my thoughts down. I used to have a diaries where I wrote personal things. But those are subjects I rather not write online about. I can write about what I’m interested in, my personality and issues I’m concerned about but that’s all.

So 3 years has gone by quite fast. I want to thank you all for your comments and likes. I hope you stick around. Maybe I’ve mentioned this before (I’m getting old 😉 ) but I’m thinking of changing the ‘About me’ page and make some small changes. I don’t know what yet but I’ll let you know when I do.

Here’s to the future 🍸 🍸
