i can hardly believe i’ve been blogging since 2011, with a few bumps on the way, it’s definitely been an interesting journey. i started posting with the purpose of sharing a little bit of my island life with friends and family back home. i realized i liked this blogging thing, so i went to ny for a blog workshop, blogshop, with my favorite blogger and photographer. i was really enjoying it, journaling my life and getting to know an amazing community of bloggers out there, and to be honest, the number of readers did keep me going too.
but then i got busy, working on other projects, and after that came julia. believe me, when you have a baby who naps twice a day for 15 minutes, last thing you want to do is sit on the computer trying to rush a post. blogging is fun, but requires hard work, more than you would think (if you’re not a blogger) – i have to think of ideas that i can relate to, and can interest my readers, i have to feel inspired to write (when english is not my first language) and i have to work on the pictures that i think are good enough to post and match my blog’s visual. usually, this process goes back and forth a few times. sometimes i go for a walk on the beach, and all these ideas come to my mind, and then i sit on my computer, and i can’t see them as clear.
sometimes i think i will blog only for myself, because i like having a journal about our experiences on island, and then other times i get confused why i had so many readers on a certain week or why did i have comments on a post and not another.
i missed blogging, and although sometimes i still struggle to find the time, or i feel lost as to how much of my personal life i should be sharing, or how much of julia i am exposing – i am determined to keep on trying and keep on looking for my own voice in the blogosphere with myseastory.
i would love to hear from you, dear readers, about your likes and dislikes – i know you’re out there and you keep me going too – thanks for following along my blogging journey ♡
