Today on the 1st August 2012 An Evil Nymph’s Blog officially celebrates its one year anniversary!! Yeah!!
Oh my god I can’t believe I’ve come to this, I mean I barely remember my very first post? At first I really didn’t know what I was doing with this blog, I just crazy wanted to have a random blog which would be totally different from my makeup one. I had no idea that by a year I would have 15,238+ views and 301 email followers already! I never knew that I would meet such a friendly and wide community of awesome and talented bloggers and unleashed my dormant passion for writing. I never knew that I would have increased my confidence and determination in life.
I would never have thought that I would be learning that much in one year!
Why start a blog in the first place?
If I remember well, I was tired of writing for myself in my diary and tired to share my thoughts on makeup only. The writer inside of me who was previously in a sleep mode had started to awaken… and so I wanted to write about more things… express myself on the internet. Some years back, I was somewhat afraid to share my opinions on the internet although I had been tempted to blog – I hadn’t felt ready.
But finally it’s not that much harmful.
The bloggers I’ve met are so kind and open 🙂 Only spam can be annoying!
And blogging has brought so many things in my life.
I met great minds and friends. I learnt a bit about web design, photo editing, marketing… I learnt how to improving my writing. How to inspire and be inspired. I learnt hope. Motivation. Love. Life.
And most important of all, I learnt the beautiful art of sharing 🙂
Why will I continue to blog?
Blogging is a support; it encourages me to dare. For example I did and won NaNoWriMo last year. And today I will begin Camp NaNoWriMo!
It is an interface which enables me to express myself and have responses. So that I feel less lonely.
It tells me to hope for a better future, because the past was full of mistakes, but in truth, the present is what is most important. The Now. Because when I blog, I only see now and nothing else. I savour every moment of my life, or at least I try. I try to do my best.
Indeed, blogging has made me happier.
And last but not least…
Thank you to all my faithful readers and supporters!! ♥
I would already have given up blogging if it was not for you!
Happy blogging guys! 🙂
