6 Years Old Today

Well, WordPress reminds me that http://www.thoughtsnlifeblog.com is 6 years old today! I even forgot it was the blog’s birthday.

The first two months of blogging – I think I only wrote about five posts. I started on a free account. I loved blogging though I started slow. When I got into it in June, I was addicted. At that time I was at home, taking care of mum and then I landed a part time job at the place I had worked before – it was perfect!

Here are my first three post ever!

I cringe!

My very first post was A Quote of course. Read here

Reminiscing the Journery

I remember my blogging journey at the beginning, clueless and secretive, no one should find out, I didn’t even share my name, I had no clue about the reader. People slowly started to comment and I commented back. I followed many blogs some of who have left WordPress, some still here. Bloggers started to follow me – oh wow! I joined all the social media I could – clueless. But, I figured out how to create the automatic integrations from WordPress.com to Facebook and Twitter quite fast (looking back). I signed up to MailChimp but couldn’t figure it out and why! But, it was fun, and I was so naive and innocent. I didn’t even understand what a blog was. Graphics, and photos well – I just used three images all the time as my feature images – eek! I love quotes I would share loads.

As time went by, I would try out different schedules and share my schedules with all, then I would be so organised I have posts scheduled up to three weeks in advance. It was quotes, meditation, and something positive or about thoughts. Then, I started to think ooo maybe I could writer a book and a lot of bloggers encouraged me (I have been trying for the last 2 years or more).

Then I started to write poetry, started my graphics services, started a Youtube channel, had a go at podcasting and then there is my Newsletter I started in July 2021

Blogging on WordPress.com is a complete joy and I have made so many good friends.

However, many of you have noticed I am not blogging as much in the last year or a bit longer – which frankly is really annoying me! I don’t know why I am struggling to write, to engage. My mother’s health is not good, and covid made getting treatment etc impossible. There are some months where is just hospital appointments! I hope to get back to blogging and engaging more, but I think it will be a slower pace. I am making lots of efforts to get my book written, I have been busy with some clients for my graphics services, the newsletter, and I have brought some self-paced courses.

So that is whistle-stop tour of 6 years of blogging – I am sure I have missed a lot

      2. I know Kate. I know we have discussed this too. I am finding that life sometimes gives me the space I need. Sometimes, I use it wisely, sometimes I waste a bit of it, sometime I totally underestimate the time a tasks takes. And then there is the struggle of life in general and a new way of life that I sometimes embrace and sometimes not.

        Sometimes I can spin all the plates really well. Really well. And sometimes I just dont. Yes, i have to tone down something to give me space for everything else. But, at the sametime I can be a bit smarter with my time and life.

        Always grateful for your love and support. I hope you are well and 2022 is being good to you !
