Today was kind-of a big deal for me as a “writer”
Upon posting my latest entry this morning, I got a notification from WordPress that it was my 50th post! Today is the first day of spring, I posted my 50th blog, and it was about my favorite topic: Carnival. It feels like a special day to me.
When I first started writing,
It was because when talked to people about my life, they always thought I had some interesting stories to tell. I have been told countless numbers of times “you should write a book about all your adventures!” To be honest, I don’t consider myself that good of a writer, but I do consider myself to have lived an amazing life and had some great adventures, and I agree, they should be shared! I decided to do exactly that through this site on August 22, 2012 when I wrote my very first post, having no idea where it would go.
My life, like everyone’s, I’d imagine, has been a rollercoaster. I’ve allowed time to slip away from me and slacked off in my writing a lot throughout these 4+ years. I’m happy to be keeping up with it regularly now, and hope to continue my current momentum of posting at least once a week for as long as I can. Self-discipline is definitely not my strong suit, but I’m going to go for it!
Below are a few random highlights from the past 4-ish years. With the start of spring, comes new possibilities for renewal. Using this as inspiration, I’ve set a goal to reach 100 posts before the end of 2016. At the rate I’m going now, I think it’s possible.
HAPPY SPRING, Thanks for following my adventures!
