What other catchphrases do you know work well for the number ‘2’!!
Because the blog has made two years🥳🥳🥳🥳.
The years go by so fast, don’t they!!
This happened over the weekend and somehow I forgot to write about it. A part of me thought I should let it go. Then I remembered that I’m celebrating small wins too (if this can be called small).
Also, this is a great place to read about what the past year has been like and lay down a plan going forward. If you want to know about the first year – it was a good foundation.
Over the past year, there was a bit of me that wondered what the point was to the entire thing. And I got my answer. Very unexpected but also very moving to hear (I might share that story with time).
And they were some conscious strides made along the way.
From last year, the idea was to bump up the posts to two per week. (and no😂, I’m not bumping that number to more than that). Some weeks…some months… I have excelled at that. Then others… I have no idea what happens. But I have enjoyed writing about writing. Things I’m learning as I make my way there or things I think about when I think writing. Altogether posts I’m proud of. Kept the Sunday Post too – my own strange rumblings that have struck a chord with some of the readers. Yay on that front.
I also participated in a challenge – the Afrobloggers Winter Challenge – and showed up with a post for its entire duration. That pushed me out of my comfort zone and worked my commitment and endurance muscles. That was exciting and I think in the mix of that, I became a little more sure with my blog. Did my best to stop looking to the left or right and comparing my achievements. Big whoop whoop on that too.
Now going forward;
- Get more consistency with the two weekly blogs.
- Have guest posts here – maybe dedicate August to that. Call it the August Guest 😉 and see where it goes.
- Maybe do more serious book reviews. Maybe. Maybe!
- Have a calendar and timetable and stick to it. Hopefully.
- Write more freely😂😂😂
Thank you for reading the posts this past year. I hope you’ll stick around for more.
