What now?

Do you still remember how your blogging saga started? 

For more than a week now, I am making my journey back to my old post, wondering what have I written in almost 3 years. Yeah, 3 years this coming February but it's not obvious. There are many bloggers out there who started their blogs just a year or a few months ago but their blogging success reaches the mountain top. I might have the same success if I created my blog for the sole purpose of earning online. But going back to my old post in like journeying back in time where my purpose in blogging was rekindled.

Truth be told, 3 years ago, I created this blog for the mere purpose of curiosity. I just wanted to know the feeling. How to do it and how it feels to own one even though I have no idea what to write. I can't even remember it's first name. As life goes on, I never did imagine that his space would be my solace in adversity. A place where I could vent my emotions. And going back to my old posts somehow made me happy because of the life I was able to give to every word I had written. Very spontaneous because it reflects my life, my feelings though not obscure because I do not seek pity when I'm down.

And today, another day to pour my heart's content. As I continue with this journey for the love of writing, I sometimes found my brain empty of words and my heart void of interest. And today I found the culprit for my dilemma, it's the fact that I lost the soul of my post, waiting for heaven to bestow me with a topic to write instead of wring my heart out.

I gained great friends through this space and this space will continue to be like how it started - the home of my thoughts. If ever comes a time that I am serious with earning online which is by this time I have no idea how to put to life (if you have idea let me know), I will put up another blog.

What now? I will continue this journey together with the great friends I found while reminiscing the days  how our great friendship started. Felicity isn't it?

  1. I can relate to this! I started my blog back in 2006. But the blogosphere was such a boring place back then. How I wish I had been more consistent with blogging.

  4. i started blogging for me to have a place where i could pour my emotions and where i could write my daily stories, and with continuous blog hopping, reading writings of other blogger who are really awesome i got addicted. there will come a time that you cant write, writer's block as they say, but i always believe that once a blogger always a blogger. =D

    happy 3rd year to your blog sis. more power!

    I so agree with what who have said SEY! Through blogging, I have learned how to come out from my shell, widen my knowledge of the world and gain friends. Happy 3rd blog anniversary Sey! More years to come!

  6. Ay ginagawa ko din yan minsan.. binabasa ang mga nauna ko nang napublish na posts. Meron dun nasasabi kong "Wow, naisulat ko to?".. Meron ding "Yikes! Ako nagsulat nito?".. Hehe. Merong mga pagkkataong napapabilib ako sa mga naisulat ko. Merong ding natatawa lang ako sa kababawan ng iilan. hihi.. Ganun talaga. :D

    Sa totoo lang din, hindi ko alam kung hanggang kelan tong passion sa blogging. Mabilis din kasi akong dapuan ng katamaran.. pero pag bumisita ang sipag, todo sipag ring mag update.. What now? Siguro sa ngayon, enjoy enjoy na lang muna dito sa blogworld. Napapaisip nakong mag earn, pero not now. Someday lang din siguro.. :)

    Rock on, ms Sey! Stay cool!

    I started blogging in 2008 but stopped when i fell preggy - i regret it a bit coz now i feel it would have been nice if i carried on with blogging. But you're right, sometimes we search or think hard of what to write when sometimes all you need to write is what you think or feel about something, someone or of yourself that very minute. But then again, i also feel that there are days when it's ok not to write and just enjoy other's blogs. Cheers sis, and here's to a lot more blog post & years of writing! Lots of love xoxo

  8. Ako naman na impluensyahan ng sister ko sa pagba blog. matagal na sya nagba blog tapos nahawa lang ako. Nakigaya tapos na enjoy ko namna. hihihi! Nagkaroon din ng time na I lost my mojo in blogging at almost 6 months ako di nag blog. Na miss ko bigla tapos ayun tuloy tuloy na uli.

  9. wow join force pala kayo ng sister mo sa blogging. masaya yun. Siguro there will come a time that you will stop for a while but I know all of us will keep coming back.

  10. Cheers sis! That's what I do when I don't have the appetite to write anything, just read and read minsan nga I don't leave comments na basta basa lang. Mas madali kasi magsulat if we're writing from the heart. Minsan dami ko gusto isulat kaso busy lang talaga, at inuuna ko tulog at uwi sa bahay kaya no time talaga.

  11. May ganyang point din ako Ms. Leah, yung tipong naa-amaze din ako na kaya ko palang magsulat ng ganun. Favorite kong balikan yung mga post na sobrang tagal na kasi bumabalik sakin ang spirit ko sa pagba-blog. 

    Siguro Ms. Leah, enjoy tayo dahil na rin sa marami tayong nakikilalang mga friends dito na hindi natin sukat akalain na ganun sila kababait and sarap ng feeling kapag makikita mo na sila. Ako din naisip ko mag-earn kaso hindi ko pa polish ang plans. I need more research pa. 

    Thanks Ms. Leah. :)

  12. Thanks Albert. I learned a lot from this experience and like what you said, gain more friends, I think that is the reward of it. A plus factor.

  13. thanks Jaid. Yes, once a blogger always a blogger. I stopped for like 8 months pero bumalik din ako. Pout out emotions is what i do mostly, minsan ko nga kung may tenga lang ang blog ko bingi na siya sa mga sinasabi ko. hehehe

  16. Would you believe I couldn't find any Filipino back in 2009. Then early last year I discovered communities of fellow filipino bloggers who are so welcoming. Then  I come to enjoy blogging more.

  17. I started blogging because Betsy was already doing it and really enjoyed it.  Then I read an article about ways to improve your life, and blogging was suggested.  So I started blogging and have met many wonderful people from all over the world.

  21. Since dinelete ko ang first blog ko, wala akong babasahing past posts and it makes me want to blame myself sometimes. Moody. Moody. Moody.

    Thanks for being my friend here. First pinay follower ko. :)

    p.s. Ekkk! Sinubukan ko lang yung +image mo dito. :D

    1. Relly ako first. Tanda ko yung moment na yun. That time I was blogging on the roof top. Buwis buhay kasi walang signal nun so I have to opt for a place with the better signal and that is the roof top. Eks.

      Hay love you too Ganda. I am happy active ka na ulit.

  22. Well, I started blogging because I've always believed that writing is therapeutic. Have you noticed that when u're sad or afraid or just mad at the world, when you start writing it all out, you just feel a lot better? I think this is why blogs were created. So we could express ourselves.

     Yes, you can earn thru blogging,but that's just a plus. And besides, the relief that you get after writing your heart out? It's priceless. Well, that's what I think. Continue blogging sweetie. :)

  26. Sey, I just wrote a similar post today about this journey I started three years ago, both blogging and starting my first novel.

    I have also watched other blogs skyrocket in one year. Mine has not, though my traffic is always growing. (I have also watched many bloggers quit their blogs.) Doing what you love is always worth it. Always.

    1. I'll head over your blog, I'm excited to read about your journey. Seeing bloggers quit their blogs is the least thing I want. Sad.

  27. Advance happy blogversary! Every once in a while I also look back and read my old post. Reading my old post makes me cry (most of my post was about my beloved daddy during his battle with the Big C)...my very first blog was created almost 6 years ago but it was not here in blogger, it was from AOL journal, then when the site closed I moved to another site, but I find it very difficult to update posts in short hindi sya user friendly..and then I ended up creating a blogger account, it was really "nakakapagod" just imagine the agony of exerting extra time just to transfer your blog post from old blog to new one, but it was all worth it. Imagine it has been years already since I created my blog pero ni top 100 ranking eh wala ako hehehe but that's okay...iba parin talaga pag galing sa puso mo yung sinusulat mo. It's more fulfilling and sarap balik balikan :)
