Wow! I made it! Never thought I would make the one year mark of blogging, but I did. Why I did not think so, you ask?
Well, it seemed pretty scary. Writing and publishing before the world was not quite what I envisioned but after reading a few other posts I was encouraged. I thought if they could do it, then I can.
So what did I get out of blogging this past year? Well, I
- Met new friends– this was an exciting part for me as I have been told in the past that “I have never met a stranger”. This is certainly true as I have connected with many across the globe. Such a joy to meet others.
- Increased in knowledge– This one is a favorite of mine because I believe life, in general, is a learning platform. Because of this, I know I do not know everything so it stands to reason, I must be open minded if I want to grow in knowledge. Blogging has most certainly been a platform to learn. I love reading others passion and life experiences for they by default cause my spirit to be encouraged, motivated, empathetic, sad and excited. I have gained knowledge tips from financial, travel, parenting, entrepreneur, fitness, mental health, education, photography, and vlogging bloggers.
- Become a better writer– I can definitely see the difference in my writing. I don’t think I was that bad of a writer in the beginning but I know with the constant writing, I have fine-tuned my writing skills to get better. I must say I love Grammarly. It is definitely a writing tool one must download and have at their disposal. Reading others blog post also has helped to train my mind to good writing practices.
- Open-minded – Blogging has opened my mind up to inspiration. I was inspired before but now, blogging has stirred up the inner thoughts of inspiration by helping me to think outside the box. Things I never thought I would engage in seem very capable to do now.
These are just a few highlights of what I have gained over the past year. I am sure I will forever continue to grow and learn more as I progress through my blogging experience.
Stay tuned for my upcoming thanks and appreciation post. My experience has been fun and not without inspiration so I want to highlight those who have impacted me along the way. It will include shoutouts and how I have influenced along the way.
