the day when I published that my blog is now live, a day where I didn’t know if I should either sit on my couch, exploding out of excitement or just dance in my living room. A day (more like a night) where I couldn’t sleep because I was too nervous and excited about what’s coming next… I know today is not 1.8.2017, but I’m once again sitting on my couch right now, wondering how am I going to start this post, without sounding like a total cliché. I can’t believe that a whole year passed by since I started my journey. I’m so grateful to all of the people who encouraged me to start this platform. I’m so angry at myself that I haven’t started it sooner because it gave me one of the greatest and unpredictable things in life, and that’s self-confidence. But I do believe that there’s a certain point in your life when you just know you’re ready for something, so I guess I’m ready right now… I was ready for this a year ago.
I have to say blogging is not easy. There’s a lot of planning, making up outfits, making sure you have a photographer (which I ironically lack most of the time), making sure you’re consistent, not because you feel a pressure by other people, but you simply feel the need to blog, because it becomes a part of you. Still, I’m not complaining about blogging being hard, it’s something that I love to do, it’s something that makes me go out of my comfort zone, and it gives me a feeling I can change something for someone.
I still get jitters whenever I post something new here, I don’t know if this feeling will ever fade, but somehow it’s like getting on stage and performing in front of hundreds of people.
Last but not least, I’m so grateful to every person who takes 10 minutes or even more out of hers/his day and reads my stories and follows my progress. I know I have statistics which shows me how many people read my posts, but it still is so weird to me when I bump into a stranger on the street which says:’’ Hey, cool blog, I read it all the time!’’ Believe me; there’s nothing more encouraging and pleasing when people compliment your hard work. To all of you out there THANK YOU, THANK YOU SO MUCH! ?
And to you, my dear friend who is just starting or thinking about starting your blog, DO IT! Don’t worry about people saying cynical remarks like:” Oh here it is, YET ANOTHER BLOGGER” just DO IT! Trust me, your whole life is about to change! ❤
