“Blogging is not rocket science, it’s about being yourself and putting what you have into it”- Anonymous
I cannot believe that I’ve had this blog for three years now, three WHOLE years! 😮
But then again I guess I can because I can’t really remember a time when I wasn’t blogging…hmmm [scratches head]. Okay on second thoughts, let me rephrase that. Perhaps it’s the fact that I’ve managed to retain an unwavering interest in something for longer than two whole minutes that I can’t quite seem to wrap my head around, it is truly mind-boggling!
Now truth be told, when I set out on this blogging journey I didn’t really have much of a plan. I wasn’t adamant that I’d post content every day or every Monday and Friday. Nor did I set myself targets like: you must acquire 100 more likes/followers by 8th August etc. I kind of just went with the flow, like I do in most aspects of my life. I did however have one small aim: to try my best to keep my platform as authentic as possible.
I’ve always liked for my posts to almost write themselves, for them to come together naturally as opposed to me being too calculated and feeling the need to force myself to write just for the sake of it. Essentially I blog because I have something to say, not because I want to say something. And as a result, over the past three years this Just A Small Town Girl thingamajjig has slowly but surely become an integral part of not only my life, but also my identity- I’m unofficially known by a couple of people as the girl who blogs!- fear not, I promise that the fame will not go to my head. 😛
But in all seriousness, it’s such an awesome feeling to know that I’ve built this thing up from what was initially nothing more than a blank canvas and of course I’ve developed an attachment towards it; it’s like my digital baby! A combination of both what I want to read and what I want other people to read, it almost always reflects whatever my immediate thoughts/feelings happen to be.
I guess you could also say that it provides me with comfort and clarity; I look to my blog as a source of hope and optimism when I need it the most. It also allows me to connect with complete strangers dotted all over the globe and I absolutely love that because for me life’s all about sharing knowledge. Plus reading lovely comments where people tell me that my post made them smile, or that they could relate to every word that I wrote genuinely makes my day, because it means that my writing serves a purpose, that it has meaning and that it’s appreciated, and that’s a huge deal for me.
So a MASSIVE thank you to every single person out there who’s supported my blogging journey so far, I truly appreciate all of your likes and comments from the bottom of my heart. And of course, please stick around because I will not be hanging up my keyboard anytime soon!
Sending lots of positive vibes and all that good stuff your way… over and out. 🙂

Aww thanks for your lovely comment Apeksha 🙂
Wishing you a very happy blogiversary! It is great to see you blog for 3 years. Makes me want to blog too! And as you said blogging is about connecting with people, and not really setting targets and achieving them. You achieve your targets when you talk to people and learn something new everyday!
Enjoy your day!
