Hey guys! Guess what today is! It’s my blog’s first birthday!! Wow. One full freaking year. I can’t even believe how fast time has flown by. It literally seems like yesterday that I was nervously rereading my very first post over and over again to make sure that it was completely perfect before I posted it. I remember I used to be so nervous that one of my real life friends might find my blog. That has changed a lot now though. I mean I tweet out links to my posts now.
I just… It’s so incredible that I’ve managed to keep this little space on the Internet alive for a whole year. It’s so wonderful that people read my rants, my reviews. That you guys enjoy my boring days and my exciting ones. It’s mind blowing to me
When I started Page Twenty Three, I was warned that I would not be an overnight success. It is years of hard work. And that is so true. I still have a long way to go to get my blog out there and to attract readers. But It’s so much fun. I just have so much fun thinking of ideas, photographing them, writing my posts and finally pressing the publish button.
I started this blog to be able to tell the world about what went through my mind. I wanted to bring a message across to my readers. And I am in the process of doing that. It is such a learning journey. I learn something new every time I post, every time someone contacts me about my blog. I learn something new everyday with this blog. And I couldn’t be more grateful.
I think it is something so special to be given an opportunity to voice your opinions and thoughts in a public space. It’s a lot of responsibility but it is an opportunity. There are thousands of blogs out there and anyone can make a blog. But it’s a two way communication. If no one wanted to read what I had to say, I don’t know if it would have been possible for me to keep this blog going. So I want to thank each and every one of you for listening to me. For giving me a voice and allowing me into your heads. I want to thank you for spending time out of your day to read what I have to say. It’s such a privilege. I wish I could give all of you hugs.
