I am so excited, it’s been a year since I first started blogging, so it is the blogiversary of CreativityorCrazy. I wasn’t sure blogiversary was even a word, but it can be found in the Urban Dictionary. Blogs come and blogs go, but somehow I’ve managed to continue blogging and have no desire to stop anytime soon. I fell short of posting twice a week, but I can say I managed to post something every month of 2012.
In the beginning I really knew next to nothing about blogging, but have really learned my way around. I now love blogging and the sense of community that comes from blogging. I enjoy reading comments left by readers of this blog(thank you), reading the blog posts of others, and getting to know some of my fellow bloggers a little better. Makes the world not seem such a lonely place.
This blog has turned into something a bit different, not just freelance writing, but a wider variety of writing as I’m trying to find my way. If you’ve been following this blog for a bit, you know I do have a fondness for memoir and personal essays. Writing from real life comes easier to me than fiction, though I will try it on occasion. There will be poetry from time to time as well as I enjoy writing poetry.
The main thing I can say I’ve learned from blogging and writing is do not let the opinions of others deter you from following your heart. My writing highlights of last year were having a poem published and being able to say I wrote a book(which may never go further than being written, but it’s written). Well, going to go do some writing, so happy blogging! 🙂
Your thoughts are always welcome… 🙂
