TWO YEARS !
I remember sitting in my room typing away my borderline judgemental thoughts about the world of clubbing in a blog I created ten minutes ago and telling myself it’s okay if no one ever followed me. It’s been two years since that day!
If someone had told me then that I’d someday have so many of you reading the things I write, I’d have laughed. But it’s happened!
And I often find myself wondering. I understand why someone follows a fashion blogger or a movie reviewing blog. I never understood why you chose to follow and read a blog that has nothing but my thoughts and opinions on it. But you do. And you comment the most incredible things when you do. And on my worst day, when I feel the desperate need to give up, your comments remind me why I began writing. And why I shouldn’t stop.
For being my sole motivator, for helping me believe in myself day after day and sending me so much love,
The endless encouragement you’ve given me has been one of the biggest reasons I’ve taken up NaNoWriMo this November. For those of you who aren’t aware of it – National Novel Writing Month – do visit – http://nanowrimo.org
At the end of this month, I will have a novel done! Though I don’t want to publish this one, I intend to put it up on Kindle and Goodreads! I will definitely have a link up and all that. If you have other platforms you would suggest or you would like to read it on, please do let me know.
I still cannot believe I’m writing my 2nd anniversary post. Words can’t explain how amazed and grateful I am. This has been the most incredible journey and I can’t wait for more!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU !
Blurb of the book:
If love could be a person it would be him. The way he smiled. The way his eyes were always dancing with joy. He wasn’t a teenager lost with the world. He was a man who knew what he wanted in life.
He wanted me.
This isn’t just a love story. This isn’t a romantic comedy. This isn’t about the world’s greatest couple ever. This is just what it is. No genre. No category.
It’s exactly how my love for him was. It’s boundless.

Congratulations on your 2 years of blogging! Wow! that’s amazing!
Thank you so much 😀
What a coincidence, I’ve just hit the two year platform as well. Congratulations!!! I’m only new here of course but like I said previously, the fashion blogs and crafting and all of those are great if you are in to those. I think most people who write or read blogs want to read engaging posts. Well written posts whether it is lol funny or gut wrenching. Well written posts like yours. Congratulations on the novel, and congratulations on two years of blogging. My new motto (borrowed from a new song) is Never Stop Moving. I’m not, don’t you either!
Yaay!! Congratulations on your Two Years ! I still can’t believe it’s been 2 years. I have to admit this past year went by quite fast. I still remember writing my first anniversary post like it was last week! I’m glad there are people who want to read such things. I’m glad you’re one of those people. Your comments literally make my week! Thank you so much 🙂
Aww, I’m glad my comments help. Yes, I know last year at this time I was so thrilled to be writing my first year anniversary post, and trying to work out how to combine photos of a bridge with the sounds of an Indian percussion and horns band lol! I briefly considered stopping my blog in August but decided to change things up and am more inspired than EVER! Part of that was reading more blogs like yours that fuel me. It is very important to have blogs like this in my life. And I’m very happy that like you I can say I have been blogging for 2 years 🙂
Oh I know that feeling. I write for a living and my job demands creative copy on demand. Writing a blog became an impossibility because I was out of ideas and thoughts. In simple words, my brain refused to think at any given point. But then I buckled up and here I am! 😀
And I’m really glad I came across your work!
A big accomplishment!
It certainly feels like it. 😀 Thank You 😀
Congratulations! What an accomplishment! I will definitely be tuning in for what’s next. 🙂
Yaay. Thank you 😀
Well done! Been seeing posts here and there over this time via the Community Pool and it is so great to see how you’ve grown and adapted and how people have been enjoying yous site – definitely doing something right…
All the best as you head into year three and good luck with that novel
love brett fish
Thank you so much 😀 I will put up links to the novel here once I’m done. I hope you’ll be able to read it. Thank you so much 😀
I love it! I just started mine and am going nuts about putting my site together. I love how yours is clean and easy to navigate.
It took me several version to get here. But I can’t say I’m unhappy about this. And if I dare say so myself, please go nuts. Try out a different theme every month until you feel comfortable with one but please remember, you’ll still want to change that a year later. 🙂
Thank you so much 🙂
YAY! Awesome. I do NANOWRIMO every year with my students, 4th graders. I think I’ve started 4 stories, and finished…. you’re inspiring me. 🙂 Thank you! Happy writing!
I am struggling to finish this one. I’m only just at 14,000 words. *fingers crossed*
Thank you so much 😀
You got this girl! 🙂 It’s funny, I have started 4 stories now… I always get busy helping my students, as I should, however it’s nice to stop, take time and just model writing in progress for them. Smiles to you!
Thank you so much 🙂
Good going girl, and best wishes too. This is a lovely post, like all of them are. Looking forward to read the book…
Thank you so much 😀 I will have links up to the book once it’s done. 🙂 Do read it and give me your thoughts 🙂
You go girl!! Congratulations on completing two years of your amazing blog 😀 All the best!
Congrats! On both fronts. I wrote a novel too but I think you may not have been able to complete your novel. Honestly, are you okay now?
