Like everything else in life, things end. But with endings come new beginnings.
I have been blogging (on and off) for 6 years now. Well, at least that’s what WordPress told me. Ha! What started off as a teenage hobby actually evolved then it eventually helped me in my studies. Blogging was my escape. I wrote about everything and this tiny corner of the internet was mine. After graduating from university, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life so I carried on with my blogging. When I figured out that I really wanted to travel and see more of the world, I realised that I should probably blog on the side too. I mean, I am travelling and meeting a lot of wonderful people from all around the world so blogging would be such a great platform to tell these stories. So I did.
By taking advantage of the free domain that I got from signing up from WordPress, I made this my battle field. Losing count on how many times I’ve deleted my posts and content online and then starting back up again, it was very hard. Not knowing what I wanted to write about or focus on back then was even harder. Being completely clueless was such a pain in the ass, but I carried on. I figured that ideas and inspiration would eventually come to me. I was right.
It has been a struggle travelling on and off for two years now, but it’s a such a beautiful struggle that I would choose over anything. Two years has also passed since I have finished my undergraduate studies. Of course, I think about ideas like “what if i actually stuck with my day job” or “what if i followed my mom and actually went to law school”. These what if’s haunt me, but I think my regret by not following my dreams would be heavier.
It has been a long ride and I actually made some success from blogging because I started getting sponsors and I started growing an online presence. Finally, I have decided to take this thing seriously so here I am. I am finally moving to my very own self-hosted domain, yay! It took me 6 long years to realise this, but it’s better late than never…or so they say.
Oh, and some very exciting projects in the coming months like this podcast that I’m trying to start and develop. I haven’t uploaded a single episode yet but it will be aired via Anchor and you can check it out by clicking HERE.
As life comes and goes, endings happen but so do new beginnings. Everything will be alright because God is with me. I hope to find success in this new journey and I am excited to see where this new road will take me. Sit back, relax and happy reading!
“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”
