I turned 1!

After a year of blogging and never ending blog surf; some may ask what did I gain out of it. Well the last time I check, I have not even have a single cent out of blogging, but what really is there on blogging that got me hooked up for a year now? Actually I don't know. I can't explain it well perhaps.

What I can really remember a year ago is an ambitious, alone, struggling, trying-hard, over acting, laptop-less, and internet-less girl who wishes to blog without even knowing how to navigate the blogger.com website. Well thanks to Google and to my dear best friend Phioxee- they are the best teachers I have. However, never did it appear to me that quitting is the best way out while I was stuck with follower 7 with my template going gaga due to some HTML errors, and never ending view count dilemma.
 
But enough of my over-rated past and look at how I progressed. Pleased! That's all I can feel right now. I slowly knew how this blogosphere works and amazingly know how to unzip downloaded file for my template. I learned a lot of things here, not just technically but with every blogger's post as well.

With that being said, I am truly grateful. I would love to post every blogger who have made my blogging year a blast and who have made a mark on me- who became my friends so to speak, but I may run short. I also planned to give away stuffs, but I would rather give everyone than just a few. So I guess I would have to wait until my budget permits...:]

Knowing about people's opinion and true emotions and learning how to deal with it is the most important learning I have gained for a year now. I also realized that blogging isn't just about making money- well I'd be hypocrite if I say I never dream of earning- but it shouldn't be the top priority. Blogging for me is about finding friends and be in a special circle of people who are beyond intelligent, free, opinionated, and over the top gorgeous like me!..haha

Kidding aside, I would like to thank all of you my fellow bloggers who made me feel belonged and worth the click. I may not be able to read all your post, but I'd make sure that I'd be viewing your blog every time I get online and catch up.

I know this post is a mouthful and this is my first post without lots of photos on it- you may notice. So, I would like to hug you all guys for sticking around and for patiently reading through my silly life. I would have gave up blogging long ago if I have not came to know you. So another year starts and cheers to us!!!

xoxo!

  13. If I may quote what you've said "What's is there in blogging that got you hooked-up"? Well, it is the expression of oneself, in blogging, you can write what you want at any given time as long as internet is available. You can freely express yourself as long as you're not stepping on someone's shoes. I guess that's one of the reasons why you got hooked-up. Happy 1st Anniv. Cheers to more blogging.

  28. Congratulations for surviving the Blogosphere for a year! Naalala ko tuloy noong bago ako. Puro walang kakwenta-kwenta posts ko. Ilang taon pa ako bago natutong mag-blogging talaga. At least ikaw unang taon pa lang ang dami mo nang natutunan. Keep up the good work. :-)

  29. I think blogging is the best thing that ever happened in the 21st century. And I really want to congratulate you for you 1 year!!!! Happy birthday to your little baby blog!!!! Hehehe!

    Blogs are like pets. they need attention and be nurtured. Besides, they also reflect you.

    I started in the same way too. Totally clueless! But it was quite an adventure. I know the feeling of seeing the first two digit numbers that represent how many times your first post was viewed after one day of posting. Oh the thrill and excitement! And now, see how many followers- readers and people who enjoy the stuff you write and are blessed with the good things that you share.

    Ang galing no? Buti na lang hindi ka nag quit. Never do that! You're doing the bloggers' community a big favour by hanging around with us. Blog hopping is the best leisure we have, and if you quit, it's like taking away something nice from us. Imagine the reaction of a drug-addict if you take away coke from him. Ganon na ganon ang reaction ng fellow bloggers mo! Hehehehe!

    Anyway, congrats and may you have more exciting trips, happy moments to share, and more fabulous experiences to share with the world!
