Today it is a big day for me or better for my blog. I should say “Happy birthday” to me. Yes, today I celebrate the first year of blogging. After 12 months I can say something more about my activity and not only to wish to “myself” a happy birthday. 2018 was very interesting for my presence online. On 1st January 2018, I started to write posts on WordPress, Instagram, and Twitter. I had a different relationship with each of these platforms.
Here I wrote every day for the very first period, as I did on IG, but then my job didn’t allow me to continue with the same engagement. Then, even without posting, I focused more on Instagram because it was funny for me. Meanwhile, Twitter was for me the way to share the links to my posts on the blog. Why am I telling you that? Be patient and you will discover it. My happy birthday is really happy because of you.
The way to my…happy birthday
Instagram gave me followers because I was spending my time there, but the blog was not growing. Post after post the number of followers was almost the same. After the 20th August 2018, I started to be more active on WordPress Reader. I discovered many interesting blogs and following, liking and commenting I got results. From 14 followers I arrived to have (now) 1025 followers. You started to follow my activity online. That was a good start for my happy birthday.
This gave me a reason to write more and to continue. Especially I had some feedbacks. You asked me to put more pictures, to add some information about my travels and so on. That is why I bought a domain and, with the help of an expert, I changed the dress of my blog. I am experimenting step by step for two reasons. The first one is to learn something useful to manage my blog, the second one is to give you better contents, more interesting for you. So my happy birthday has come.
From the first year to the second one
Well, I already wrote some thoughts about my first year. So in this part of the post, celebrating my happy birthday I can focus on the plan for 2019. Today it is the first day of the New Year, this means that my blog’s birthday is even more important. My wish and my expectations go to include my goals. What to do next? Grow. This is the answer because I really like to interact with you, to share my experience and to improve my posts together with you.
I am planning to organize myself better in order to combine the time for work and the time for the blog. Some articles are already in my mind, but this it’s easy because I have some trips already fixed on my agenda. Then I want to create a section dedicated to my experience on the internet. What? Why? Some of you asked me for some advice about blog management. I am not an expert, but I can explain what I learn in doing. Now you can start to say to me “happy birthday”. Why not?! But the big gift I ask you is to give me your feedback.
You and me
This birthday is happy because of you all, my dear 1025 followers. I thank you for the support and for being here. In the beginning, I had a lot of doubts, but mow my passion became reality. I was surprised when I started to see the numbers of visits and views. Maybe my expectations were very low and maybe I was thinking to leave after a few months. I am here and I want to go forward.
This means a lot. I promise you to keep my engagement and to write cool and interesting posts in the next 12 months. This is my new goal in walking with you for 52 weeks, traveling and sharing. There will be tips about the places I visit and my luxury experiences. What do you think about my plans? In the end, I say happy birthday to my blog and Happy New Year to you!
