i’ve been on wordpress for a whole year

I just got a little notification from WordPress to say that it is one year since I set up this blog. I can’t believe that a whole year has passed and how much has changed.

I thought that this blog was going to be a bit of a self help manual, but then I realised that I don’t know how to look after myself, so I couldn’t really expect people to listen to my advice.

Slowly, it was poetry and words that came to the forefront and now I just like to write what is on my heart that day. There is always something that is there and I hope that it resonates with somebody who reads it.

I think that is the important thing about writing; you don’t need to be hugely successful, you just need to touch the heart of one person. We are all so wrapped up in trying to be rich and famous and I think that we should stop chasing that. It’s not good for our mental health and it just eats us up inside.

It’s far better to just write for fun and really value the knowledge that you have made a difference in someone’s day. I hope that I’ve given you something worthwhile to think about at some point over my year and I hope that I can continue to do so.

Much Love

    That’s what I try to do with every post, to touch just that one person, and it’s easy to see that your heart’s in the right place, judging from the content on your blog. Congrats on your one year anniversary, and here’s to many more years to come!

    I know. I’m not trying to be famous for my writing, and it’s probably better that I’m not since my stories are based on real people, most of whom don’t know that I’m writing about them. (Well, there was that one time I got recognized in public for my writing, but that’s a little different.) But sometimes I wish I got more comments on my stories… it’s been an interesting self-journey for me, but I like talking about it with others too.

        Hehe, true 🙂 Did I ever tell you about the time I got recognized? The time I gave socks to the homeless guy? I know I posted that on Instagram, but I don’t remember if I wrote an actual blog post about it. (This week is going to be an interlude from the story, so if I didn’t post it, maybe I will soon.)
