12th Blogversary and Why Do I Still Blog?

I was busy celebrating our couple's anniversary and wedding anniversary and I forgot that last week was also my 12th blogversary. Time is ticking so fast and I did not imagine that I will be blogging this long. Nowadays, people prefer watching videos so the majority of the content creators are now on YouTube, Tiktok, and Instagram Reels so why do I still blog? 

Well, we are all unique and we have our own talents, skills, gifts, and even personalities. I don’t see myself in front of the camera because I am an introvert. I prefer reading to watching. I prefer writing or blogging so I have something to look back on when I want to reminisce or I need some details and information. From time to time, I post videos too as an extension of my blog posts. 

Looking back, I started this blog just to keep myself sane and I wanted to document my son’s milestones. Now, this blog still keeps me sane but it evolves because I change. As time flies my likes, preferences, and interests change too. But one thing that never changes is, this blog still sparks joy and fits the life that I want to live in. 

The online world is overwhelming but I can step away from it so there are months that I have few blog posts or social media posts because I am busy with my offline life. And my offline life is my real world/real life and I am happy to spend more time with my family, friends, and hobbies. 

“Do more of what makes you happy” 

Blogging success is not only determined by how many followers and views you have because you can define your own success or achievement. For me, it is already an achievement to reach 12 years and counting… I feel blessed to do the things that I love with my own time and the most important thing is no pressure.
