[1: 2,030 of 10,000] My Blog Turns 10 Today

In Journal on November 29, 2020 at 7:49 PM

This blog is celebrating its 10th year anniversary today!

When I reflect my reason for starting this blog, it didn’t changed. It’s still a space where I write what I think about any subject that tickles my mind. It satisfies a need in me to express myself without walls or the need to be validated by anyone. I do have to admit that it’s quite flattering when real people clicked like and even leave a message.

I remained anonymous all through the years, there’s one friend who knew about this blog but respected my privacy and let me write without interruption. I do feel the freedom to truly speak the language of my heart in words.

I still surprise myself especially when rereading my past posts because I don’t remember every words and get blown away with the way my train of thoughts have been. I was writing the same things before and yet they mean differently with what I’ve come into being now.

Here’s to celebrating more strings of words in years to come!

6th-year-anniversary

Yesterday was my blog’s sixth year anniversary. My personal aim of starting this blog was to practice writing everyday so I build discipline and on hindsight to hopefully my passion radiates enough that it is able to inspire a reader.

I have not been very good at my goal of writing everyday like 370 posts short, yeah it’s like saying I have not blog for more than a year in total, do I go back and declare this my fifth year anniversary. Oh well, I got on the way, my excuses are I was coping with works and I have not been getting the proper energy to sit still and let my muse get to work.

Do you write a blog daily? It’s not always easy from my end. This blog doesn’t have a particular theme so I get to write about anything that speaks to me once I’ve open the writing page. I sometimes keep a list of topics that I intend to tackle eventually but most of the time they get discarded because I do dive into a piece once I am in that moment to write.

The happiest times for me is when the flow is just perfect. A subject rush through my mind and flows through my screen. Those were magical moments that the string of ideas come right out without labor pain. The surprising part is after sometime and I forgot that I’ve even written about it and will be amazed to contemplate and ask “That is nice, did I really write that?”

I have my dry moments like my muse didn’t show up for the day and I do push to get a post out of me even if it’s a short one but profound. Like what they say in Masterchef, if you are making the simplest dish like an omelette; it got to be the most delicious omelette that would blow the judges’ taste buds. For moments that I’ve tried to write something wonderful and it fall short, I simply forgive myself and move on with the intent that I should do better next time.

My tip on where do I get everything that I write about… I live life and then share it. Go try something for the first time, read and listen, interact with various people, and then write.

Here’s a toast to all my 1,819 posts!

I saw a new icon that is not very familiar – it was a very cute trophy.

When I open the notification, I blurted oh yeah, today is It Takes 10K’s 2nd Anniversary!

 

It’s a good surprise and I wasn’t ready for my cake but I guess the best way to celebrate is to make a blog. ♥

2 years and definitely still counting! 🙂
