I barely even noticed its first anniversary. Yet, it’s still up and running on its second year. That notification above is quite right,too. It is an achievement especially for someone like me who was unable to blog that much in a span of two years. Good blogging? I am not sure about that. Apart from the stats confirming some long periods of inactivity, I must admit that I have quite ignored my site. Why? The concocted answers are in The Kind of Writer I Am, I would like to think that I wrote it because I got enlightened. Or was it because I was making alibis? Whichever, it helped me realised how my writing habits affected my blogging activity.
I know that there is no limit to what we can write about. Many ideas may stem from the daily routine at home and at work, from a chinwag with a neighbour or from a meeting with a friend over a cup of coffee. Our travel experiences, (Summer in and Around LLandudno), the movies and TV programmes we watch and anything we read are also lucrative sources of blogging information. Not to mention those meaningful encounters with strangers (One Day, Two Stories). It is fascinating when these circumstances inspire topics that become alive in anyone’s blog. They can motivate, uplift and help raise awareness (Depression and Anxiety).
At one point, melancholy has not spared me and it was poignant in a poem, In My Arms. The point is, and I say it again, the world we live in has so much to offer to the blogging world.
Two years ago, I knew very little about blogging. I started it to feed my passion for writing. Today, it still does. Two years ago, I created Opinions Matter because I know I have something to share about life itself. I have never been and still is not driven by stats but every notification of likes, comments and follows I get brings forth a genuine gratefulness from my heart.
Well, you’re welcome WordPress and thank you for letting me fly with you. Though it’s a turbulent ride for me, I intend to stay.
