Blog #100

The first word I can say right now is WOW! 100 blogs? 100 blogs! I wasn’t keeping track at all until yesterday after the Father’s Day 2019 post. When I saw that the post was my 99th post written, I was in awe. I couldn’t believe it. This is a very big deal to me because it shows off how much I love to write, and how much I could write. 100 blog posts is insane and this all happened in 1 year as June 16th marked 1 full year of being on WordPress and I must say I love this website. This website gave me the opportunity to start a platform. A platform that I didn’t think I could ever start. But guess what, it’s ONLY the beginning.

Throughout my life, I’ve always had an interest in writing. I never knew exactly how to express it though. I never wrote in a journal. I never wrote diaries. I never wrote poems. The only time I’ve ever wrote anything was in school during English class. There was something about writing that I’ve always enjoyed whenever I do write in anything. I’ve always enjoyed writing essays whether people believe that or not. Each time I would write an essay, more words would always come to my head. The more words would equal the better essay. Not only just words, but knowledge. The fact that I knew what to put down on paper instantly would help me through writing anything.

After I finished high school, I haven’t wrote anything for a couple of years. I just didn’t feel the need to. “What would I write about?” was something I would always think about. I didn’t comprehend it at all, but that would change in the fall of 2017. One day, I randomly decided to pick up a journal from my job. I already had writing utensils at home, so I was prepared for anything whenever needed. I took the journal home and decided to write my first official journal entry post school. I titled it,”Introduction” and it took off from there. I wrote journal entries almost daily for the next couple of months. Couldn’t believe how much I wrote in them. Honestly, I do believe it’s almost over 10,000 words combined! I literally just guessed that amount, but I’m probably not that far off. It was really cool to write in that journal because I started falling in love with writing day by day. I then slowly started to realize that I’ve always enjoyed writing, it just took me a long time to finally figure that out. I thought I would write in the journal forever until I heard about this website called WordPress last June.

I’ve never heard of this website before. My brother told me about it one day while I was talking to him about my journal entries. He literally said, “Since you like writing so much, try this website WordPress! I figure you will love it since you enjoy writing.” I went on this website and at first, I wasn’t gonna go through with this. I didn’t know anything about blogging. I’ve done it at least once before years ago in middle school, but never fully developed an interest into it. The more I looked into this site, the more I became interested. After checking it out for so long, I finally decided to courage up and go for it! On June 16th of last year, I officially created my blog website here on WordPress!

For the next year, blog after blog after blog! I really didn’t know if I would even make it to 100 posts. The more I blogged, the more I became fully aware of my true talent. My true talent is writing. Once I put my mind on a certain topic, I can write about it for days. With my blogs, I wanted to show people what’s on my mind, no matter the topic. Whether it’s about music, traveling, reviews on video games or movies, and even discussions I could write about anything. Sure, I deal with writer’s block a lot too. Writer’s block can suck big time but once you overcome it, you’ll be back on track with your writing. I really enjoy providing blogs for you guys because not only that I want to provide a good read, I want to provide some good quality reading for y’all. Even though most of them are short, I do my absolute best to give you guys some good content!

Now I’m on blog #100! 100 blogs down, tons more to go! Not hundreds more, TONS MORE! I will continue to write until I get tired of it, which is never. I will continue to write forever. Now I do ask myself sometimes, “Where will I go from here? How will my blogs take my writing skills to the next level?” I do want more writing gigs. I do want to make something of my writing. I want to make it my profession! That’s the goal. With WordPress, this definitely got me in the door.

I can’t leave this off: I want to thank you guys. To everyone who shares my blogs, thank you. To everyone who gives me feedback, thank you. To everyone who just simply takes the time to read my content, thank you. Thank you all! Because of all of this, I will most definitely CONTINUE to provide content daily for you guys. As a matter of fact, expect some new content coming up 👍🏻👍🏻.

100 blogs down, infinity more to go. Thank you guys so much, and I love you!
