Little did I know – 1 year of blogging!

1 Year

Would you believe it, today is my one year anniversary. One year! I’m sure for people out there, who have been at this for years, one year is nothing, and I get that. Hopefully I will be among those one day. But for me, here, today, one year of blogging is significant!

A year ago, I decided that a goal for 2014 would be to shed on average one item a day. And I got this idea, that I would start a blog to keep me on track, which as you can see, I did πŸ™‚

So why is celebrating one year such a big deal? Β Well, you see, when I started out, I had this intention to blog for a year, but to be quite honest with you, I wasn’t really sure if I would actually manage to stick with it. I’ve tried journalling before and never succeeded (and I’ve tried several times), so why would writing a blog be anything different? Β But believe it or not, here I am, one year later, still posting the occasional words on my blog, and that’s why one year is such a big deal. Not only was I able to stick with it, but I’ve found that I like doing the occasional writing, and being part of a blogging community.

Little did I know, when I started out, that this world of bloggers, would enrich my life, as they have truly done.

This year, I have changed some of my ways. I’m sure some of this change would have come about any-ways, because of the journey I’ve been on the last few years. But there are no doubt that I have changed even more because of the blogging community.

You never know, I might let you in on some of these changes, over the next weeks and months πŸ˜‰

It’s funny, how when you start a journey, it’s like the universe align itself to help you out, and put the right people in your path. And that’s how it feels, one year in. Starting a blog seems to have been one of the better decision I could have made. Through my blog, I’ve met some wonderful and creative people, who’s writings I can’t help but to be influenced by.

I’m really looking forward to continue this journey of mine, together with all of you, who so graciously have invited me into your “homes”. Without you, this blog would surely no longer exist!

I can’t wait to see what the next year will have in store for us all πŸ™‚

Happy anniversary!

    Congratulation. One year is huge. When I started my blog I had no idea if I would be able to keep it going, now I am in year three and still going strong. Looking forward to hearing what changes are coming for you.

    Congrats on your one year! You and I started right about the same time…and found each others’ blogs right at the beginning too. Like you, I wasn’t sure if I could stay with it but I’m awfully glad I did. And I’m privileged to have been able to follow your writing for the last year. I hope you’ll continue to share your thoughts and writing with us. I’m looking forward to it.

    Congrats! Will you keep getting rid of things or do you feel happy with the amount of stuff you have now?
    I know what you mean too, I also just thought I’d write down a few ideas but them quite enjoyed it and all the blogs I found.

      Thank you πŸ™‚ Yes, I’ll continue to get rid off thing, I have to admit, I’m not quite done yet. It seems like the more I get rid of, the more I want to get rid of. Guess I’ll hit a satisfactory level at some time, but I don’t seem to be there quite yet πŸ˜‰ As you might have seen, I’ still have a few little declutter “projects” I’m working on..like the DVD’s, books and not to forget the photos, which I suspect I’ll be working on pretty much through 2015. Scanning my photos isn’t done in a jiffy you know πŸ˜‰
