Hello, my pretties! How are you all? Doing well, I hope! (Yes, I’m here again. No, I can’t make up my mind on things. Ever)
Well, I’m here to carry on with my Things I like from A to Z series, currently featuring a grand total of one post. I’m also here to… be here, get used to the block editor and stop being such a perfectionist. Will I succeed? Who knows?
Well, my failure to make a decision apart, let us move on to the subject matter, shall we?
I think it’s a surprise to exactly no one that the thing I like starting with a B is blogging. I have been doing it for almost twenty years, starting in 2002, after all. At first, it was something I did mostly lazily. My job at the time left me some serious downtime, and I needed a project to keep me busy during such time. Somehow, I learned about blogs and started working on one.
Friends, it was bad. Really, really bad. The theme was this purple/aqua monstrosity with some flowers, if I recall correctly (thank God it no longer exists!). And the content was so cringe-worthy. A virtual diary for a character who, looking back now, was very whiny and immature at first. I do have to admit she matured a lot as her story developed and I started interacting with other blogs, but oof. Those first couple months were rough.
Around the same time, I started a personal blog. Also very cringy, I’m sure, though it was a lot of fun. It was something like this one, mostly. I’d just start a new post and write whatever was in my mind that day. I really wish I still had that kind of enthusiasm, but oh well… time has passed.
Blogging is still a source of joy for me, though. It allows me to vent, to clear my head, to share something, and it has made me quite some good friends or acquaintances. With the state of the world, I have been going back and forth, wondering whether or not I should stop blogging, but I know I just can’t. No matter how much I try to stop, I just like it too much.
What about you? How long have you been blogging? What do you love about it? How’s your blogging journey going at the moment? I’d love to hear from you in the comments!
See you on the next post!
