2016 Blogging Recap!

I can’t believe 2016 is coming to an end… It has been a really long journey but fast at the same time. When the year started, I really did not think blogging would be a huge part of it. However, it served as an outlet for me in dealing with my depression, rage, and sense of self.

Looking back, I am in awe by how much blogging has become a huge part of my life. It has only been 8 months but also, it has already been 8 months!

Side-note: if you read my previous post, “Greatest Lessons My Fitness Journey Taught Me“, you have read about my current favorite show, Naruto Shippuden being one of the reasons I have been slacking on here. I wrote about it on buzzite and you can read my article HERE

3 Things Blogging Taught Me:

  • Trust in your craftBeing YOU is more than enough. Stay AUTHENTIC to who you are and you will attract your real supporters
  • Consistency is KEYI found the more I blogged, the more people became interested in reading my content. When people see you are serious about something and see how much passion you have for something, they tend to become interested in checking it out!
  • Quality over Quantity ALWAYS!Yes, consistency is VERY important but QUALITY is still the main reason people come back. The quality you put out there defines who you ARE, too.

3 Blog Celebrations:

  • Reached my goal of 100 subscribers (I am now a little over 130 🙂 )
  • Reached my goal of 10,000 views on my blog (I am now at 10, 860!)
  • Started receiving FREE products to review
