WordPress kindly reminded me yesterday that it was my Blogiversary. I’ve blogged for one year straight on this platform, and I must say, I am actually proud of myself.
I have managed to keep a regular schedule with only the occasional lapse. Granted, I scaled down the number of times I post in a week, but that’s okay. I have steadily increased my followers. I have made blogger friends. I have found many a resource or exciting book release through this blogging community.
It’s been a great experience.
There are some things which I set out to do at the beginning of the year that I didn’t quite complete, such as my Viking novella. I am working on the second-ish draft, in which I am incorporating my pet mythological creature, the draugar. Another thing would be my Campaign for Awesome; I haven’t achieved all the awesome I should have, but I made a good effort and I’m not giving up yet.
There are some things I came to enjoy that I never thought I would enjoy, like zombies, and the ideals of self-publishing. I even extended some in-real-life friendships with this whole blog thing. Who knew the Internet could help with real life? Crazy.
I was considering stopping the blog all together for a little while. I told myself when I started that I had to stick it out for a full year and then I was allowed to decide if I wanted to stick with it for the foreseeable future. I may still take a bit of a hiatus because of reasons, but I like this whole blog thing.
I think I’ll keep it.
