Believe it or not, this is my 501st blog. I can’t believe I’ve written so many blogs. I remember when I began writing my blog in September, 2010, how green I was. I began an account with WordPress in September, but I didn’t begin writing until October, 2010. I kept putting writing off. I didn’t know what to say. I was afraid no one would read anything I wrote. And for a while, no one read my blog. I’d get 1 or 2 people a week. But I kept writing because I had something to say about the experience I was going through. Now, I’m amazed how fast I can write my blog. Experience really pays off.
Sometimes I think my writing is worse than when I began. Now I catch all my mistakes, before I was too afraid to change something I wrote. I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to come up with a new and better sentence. When I write now, it doesn’t bother me to delete a sentence. I know that if I erase a sentence, I usually write a better one.
What have I learned? I’ve learned that no matter how bad a blog I write, tomorrow I might write a fabulous blog. The thing is, not to give up. And I never did give up. If you read my blog, you know that I’m a target of the U.S. government. A lot of the time, they’ve made writing my blog very difficult. The government hackers delete my blog all the time. I just keep rewriting. They’ve never stopped me. So I’m really proud that I was able to meet my goal of writing 500 blogs. It was difficult to reach my goal of 500 blogs, but I did it!
I’ve learned that I’m as stubborn as a mule. The government kept kicking me, but I stood my ground.
I’ve learned when writing a blog, to write the blog first and then I can give my blog a title from something I’ve written.
I’ve learned that I’ve written some really good blogs, and some really awful blogs. But no matter if my blogs were well-written or not, I just kept writing.
I’ve learned that WordPress.com is the best blogging site. All the help WordPress has given me is priceless. I couldn’t afford to pay for all the help I got from WordPress. I applaud you WordPress. All of you take a bow. And thank you all for your help. You have my heart.
I’m sure I’ve learned other things, but somehow now, I can’t think of them.
Oh, and how can I forget to thank all my readers? Thank you all for reading my blog. I’ve said it before, I appreciate each one of you. I hope you keep finding my blog interesting and keep reading it. I’ll do my best not to let you down. Love you all.
