I would like to wish each and everyone of you a happy Valentine’s. May your day be as beautiful as you would like it to be.
Growing up I have always had boys give me chocolates, tea cups or teddy bears in school for Valentine’s. Of course I had to hide it from my parents for as long as I could because what did we know about love at that age right? lol. If your parents were a bit old school like mine back then I am sure you can relate!
Part-time blogger? Yeah sure! But I didn’t expect it to feel like a part-time job! When I first started blogging in the latter part of 2016, I told myself I would stick to maybe 2-3 new posts per week. After all, being employed full-time meant that unless I quit my job this is something I will have to do as hobby. “It can’t be that hard”…I told myself.
The New Year rolled in and I felt really confident about the work that I did on my blog thus far. Second week February arrived and my daily visitors started to climb. I began overthinking that I didn’t have enough content to keep them engaged. So I researched some possible topics to write about when facing a lack of inspiration and found this UK Blogger that provided some useful suggestions. Thanks to her I felt confident moving forward with over 100 topics.
As I am turning 29 years old today I thought it would be nice to list 29 things I achieved in 29 years. Firstly, I am grateful to the Almighty God for being able to see another year. Grateful for all that He has blessed me with and His continued grace and mercy. This post is not to brag or boast about the material things I have, but to share a little about myself in the hope that it can motivate someone else.
This is one of the hardest topics I have had to write about since my blogging journey. About two weeks ago I did all my research and started putting together the points I wanted to discuss. But every time I tried to get my thoughts together I couldn’t get the creative juices flowing. Eventually I decided to leave it alone and kept it in draft for keepsake.
This morning as I was making my daily rounds on Facebook I saw someone posted in a Facebook Group asking some of the same questions I intended to address on a lack of support.
Realizing that I was not the only one affected by this, suddenly I was determined to finish writing if it meant helping someone.
So it is the height of your weekend and you are having a great time. You felt as though you had just left the office and work is the furthest thing from your mind. Your main focus now is getting everything checked off your to-do list.
Sunday has arrived and you’ve concluded that your weekend had been wonderful and went just as planned. Cognitive of the fact that you have work on the following day and soon you would have to wind down and prepare mentally and physically. Yet, you elude that thought.
So finally I bought a planner for my Blog from Stradivarius, one of my favourite stores. Today after work I decided to make a quick stop at the Mall because I had promise to get a Blog Planner at the beginning of the year.
However the third week crept in and caught me lapsing. The main reason for this is because I returned from vacation in the second week of January and getting back in my routine after 3 weeks was such a drag!
