100 days of blogging

Today marks the 3rd month or 100th day since I started this blog( For those wondering, 3 months amounted to 100 days, not 90. It stunned me too). I look back to when I started. I had no idea what I wanted to write about( half the time, I still don’t); I had no idea the direction I wanted to take this blog but I am glad I stuck with it.

I started this blog at a dark period of my life. I had suffered a personal loss and I had begun to feel redundant. I wanted to keep busy. Then a friend suggested I blog. I didn’t take her seriously at first. I thought, who cares what I had to say? Gradually, I begun to research blogging sites and stumbled upon WordPress and I fell in love. (It is a bittersweet relationship due to its stringent rules on ads, which makes turning this blog into a profit-making venture in the nearest future a tad bit difficult)

I look back at my very first article What am I doing? and I realise how much things have changed. I am no longer an aspiring chef(sad face). I seem to have lost the passion for trying new dishes, mainly because my guinea…husband was not enjoying most of the experiments. I still google dishes and watch how they are made on YouTube but I don’t make them anymore(sad face). I am yet to write a single article on PS games or Hindi movies, which is beyond outrageous and something I intend to remedy in the nearest future.

I have noticed of late that I have been getting a lot of mails on relationship and family troubles. This bothers me to no end, because I don’t think..stratch that…. I know that I am not qualified to give anyone advice on anything. Don’t get me wrong. I love getting the letters, but sometimes I feel overwhelmed that I may give the wrong advice that may ruin someone’s life. Can’t someone send me a story about a puppy or quick sand or something fun? I like fun. Fun is good.

So there is it. 100 days of blogging. I am having a blast. I only hope my readers are having as much fun reading as I am. Drop a line. Do you enjoy the blog? Your comments and critiques are most welcome. Praise me! Praise me! Praise me!

  1. Hera, well done! 100 days, good for you! I feel you. I finally submitted to the ‘nagging’ that I should start blogging about six weeks ago- it’s fun, it’s lonely, it’s tasking & yes we aren’t making money like Linda Ikeji… yet 🙂 . From one blogger to another, keep up the good work. I’ll definitely continue to drop by. You go girl!
