It’s Been A Year…?

.. And I’m still not a popular blogger?

Oh wells, story of my life. Not like I really put the effort into it, huh?

So WordPress has just awarded me with this notification alerting me that I have managed to keep this blog for a year and to “keep up the good blogging” and I guess now’s the time to look back and see what I’ve actually accomplished in the last year of blogging.

Well for starters, I think one of the first things I realized that is that it takes a bit of an effort to actually get followers and the dream of instantly getting my blog so popular that I can make a living off of it is completely baseless and irrational.

Fine. And then I had the theme dilemma. I still do. By the way, what do you guys think of this theme?

It looks very teenager-y, don’t you think? I thought it would fit and look kind of sassy being that I’m a teenager and sassy and all. But I’m not sure, a part of me is saying it doesn’t look “professional” but then again, this blog is in no way, “professional”.

It’s all the color that is kind of making me tilt my head because it looks a little like puke.. I don’t know. But honestly, I could spend hours looking through different themes and I would never be satisfied. So forget that.

And while we’re on the topic, I never did really learn how to custumize my blog. I mean, I’ve experimented with themes- still experimenting, but I mean like adding all sorts of features and headers and stuff.

But some stuff that would probably make my blog better I just don’t want to add. Like, my picture. This blog is something that’s public- online. Even thought it’s unlikely a lot of people will find my blog on Google or something- it’s kind of weird having strangers see your picture. Plus- I like the idea of a mysterious author.

And I would never include a link to my Facebook. Only a few people in the real world even know I have a blog. I’m not ashamed of it or anything- I just prefer being my own person on here and to me, it would feel so weird to mix my online life with my real life.

I’m the same person… yet I’m not, you know?

Online, I think I’m a bit more open. I can say anything because no one can really point fingers at me and people will only read if they’re interested. I know I’m not boring anyone because otherwise they wouldn’t be reading.

But other than that stuff, I have a few widgets on my blog, which I think are the only few that I feel are necessary.

And sure, I don’t have the greatest amount of followers, and I don’t update all the time.

But I like having this blog. It’s a part of my life. A way to unleash.

So happy blog-a-versary to me!

    I just had my blog-a-versary too recently xD Don’t get disheartened, I still find it exciting that even one person visits my blog a day! ❤

  2. I feel the same way as you…I’d never link this to my facebook page, I write more authenic that way 🙂 You shouldn’t worry too much, the content on your blog is good…I can really relate to it and I’m sure many other teens can too 🙂
    Goodluck though
    xoxoxo

  3. Happy Anniversary…
