Blogging helped me not to be afraid of vulnerability. Above all, blogging taught me hard work, confidence, patience, empathy, and a long-lasting source of artistic license. I wouldn’t trade it for anything else. Throughout my journey, I realized that my story matters regardless of where I’m from. I share my personal stories and hope to impact my readers in the best way I can. I’ve taught, encouraged, and helped people believe in themselves, take risks in their lives, and start building a future in their 20’s.
A blogger’s journey to success starts with years of questioning her place in this industry (and that means being overwhelmed most of the time) but still giving it her best. Making it to a full year of part-time blogging while attending college online classes is such a huge achievement for me. Not everyone is disciplined enough to pull off the work it takes to reach one whole year making a name for yourself on the internet. The number of hours dedicated to brainstorming content and optimizing SEO in every blog post is mind-blowing for any newbie blogger. I can’t believe it’s been a year. The thought of celebrating my 1st blogging anniversary gives me a feeling of thrill, hope, and gratitude.
