Three Years of Togetherness

Back in April, I got a notification from WordPress informing me that I have been with this platform for three years now. Wow! I started blogging back in 2005 but it was more of a “dear diary” slash blow by blow account of all my travels and everything Kpop. Just imagine that I started in Multiply and graduated to Blogger and then jumpshipped to WordPress. My relationship with WP is better than ever. Hey, I got the WP app in smartphone!

Hestory. History.

Hestory, now a history. I was so addicted with kpop back then

Three years of maintaining this blog taught me to :

  1. Write about what you love. I don’t force myself to write something just for the sake. I feel that if I want to share something, it is straight from the heart. Right now, it is all about travels because sometimes, photos shared in Facebook or Instagram are not enough to describe what it feels like to have that first taste of cendol , the feel to be in one of the Turtle Islands or the feel to be with fellow tennis fans during the Sydney Open.

  2. Be open to suggestions. I am not your best in English blogger. I consult my besty if I what I wrote made sense. I am such a scatterbrain (most times sometimes) that my thoughts are all over. Good thing, I got my own personal editor. Cheers to you, Besty!
  3. KISS. I try to keep it short and simple because I might traumatise the reader. Similar to my albums in Facebook, I don’t load the photos (or ideas) in one go because this can scare the viewer/reader. As much as possible, I don’t use high falluting words (heck, my vocabulary is limited anyway. Those words from SAT reviewers went down the drain over the years).

I foresee that I will be writing more. Topics will be varied. Blurred photos will be less. Stories that will inspire. Definitely, posts that will not bore you to tears.

A Brand New Day

P.S. How timely that this is my 100th post! Yay!

  1. Happy 3 years sis! Yes, I agree. Write what you love, no pretensions and just be ourselves. Wish you more blogging opportunities and God bless you more.

  2. Happy 3 years in WP, sis! Right, I couldn’t agree more. Write what you love and don’t be pressured about not publishing a post too soon if you don’t feel like it. It should be something that would make you happy. Cheers and goodluck! More posts and more adventures to come! 🙂

  3. Keep it simple and continue blogging. I always heart with my heart and things that I love. Its my outlet for my unforgettable moments and recipes that I love. Congrats!

  4. Sayang, I knew Blogger before WP when I started to blog. I love their templates. I personally like your travel posts and incorporating “KISS” is something I also follow.

  5. Hurray for three years of blogging! Mag three years na rin blog ko. Do you know that I used to blog anonymously a long, long time ago? I was not able to sustain it kasi parang kausap ko lang sarili ko. hehehe Daig ko martial law sa pagcensure ng posts ko. hehe Now, I write anything I want to write about. Keber sa grammar. hehehe

  6. Do you have a post on how you switched to wordpress from blogger and any advantage/disadvantage? I think I want to switch too but I’m afraid it might ruined everything.
