My blog just hit 2 years last month and this happens to be my 100th post.
When we are celebrating anniversaries, we ought to look back at where we have come from and appreciate all that because it is what made us who we are now.
When we are celebrating anniversaries we ought to define where we want to go, what we want for ourselves, where we feel we need to change or improve.
Anniversaries are a new beginning. In fact, every day is an anniversary. Just like every year, every month and every week is. There’s nothing normal about seeing a new day, a new week, a new month, a new year. It is all supernatural, God’s will if I may.
I will state here for the first time that I am proud of myself. I mean my girl (me) has been writing on her blog for two years now and improving at it every time she does a new one. She loves where she is at now and is aiming at getting even better.
Despite the stumbling blocks, I am still here. I remember some time back before I even knew what blogging is (probably 2016) , I’d just type on my phone and would intend to share the words with my contacts and on Facebook eventually. I sent a few short articles to someone. And they said I wasn’t good. I sort of believed him and stopped for a moment. But the truth is, what’s meant for you, what is supposed to happen for you will find you (Notice am using the words for you, not to you or against you). Because I later discovered blogging in 2017 and started and here we are.
I have learnt that good things take time. To be patient, to trust the process. And to appreciate the process.
Through blogging, I have been able to interact with many writers among them (I have attached links to their websites);
Bikozulu. Besides being a great writer, he is a great teacher. I attended the Dec 2018 Masterclass for writers which he runs alongside Bett Kinyatti of craft it. I wrote about it, if you didn’t catch it, read here.
BAKE (Bloggers Association of Kenya) held a digital marketing training sometime last year and I got to meet the BAKE Chairman Kennedy Kachwanya who was running the class. Through this training, I met a few ladies among them Sarah Nderi. She is an amazing and vibrant young woman with whom we have done several guest posts on each other’s sites. I also got to interview Sarah, see interview here.
Bildad Makori, who approached me through my blog and he is even supposed to guest post on my site soon.
When I was still new to WordPress, I’d sought for articles to read and Ghana’s Joseyphina’s gave me company. I even requested to carry out an interview with her. She was gracious enough to accept and she did respond on time. See the interview here.
This article won’t be complete without me celebrating you dear reader for always being here.
Sometimes I look through my site statistics and I see a huge fan base from my country Kenya and from very far countries. I am really honored.
