It’s been a while. I know I’ve said countless times I’d blog more often, but I’ve begun to accept that I won’t, at least not for extended periods of time. It’s not something I’m happy about, but this just seems to be my normal habit. I thought that, with age, I’d mature more and become more discipline. I guess I was wrong.
I spent the last few months thinking about my writing future. As I take steps towards the end of my internship and schooling, it seems more of a reality that writing might not be part of my life. I hate to admit it, but after 10 years of dreaming to be a writer and not actually doing much of it, you accept it and stop believing in yourself.
I took a blogging class in university, and I remember some of the tips I was given, yet I hardly followed any of them. I had this idea that blogging was more about the writing instead of the profile picture/identity of the writer, the use of pictures and other media, telling everyone you know about your blog, and having a specific niche to write about. Well, I was wrong again. While I have reasons for not following those rules, it makes me wonder whether I would’ve had more success and changed my writing had I stuck to those commandments.
What if? It’s the question we always wonder in life.
The End of Picked Last in Gym Class
I decided to let this blog go. It doesn’t make sense to me to pay $40 a month to keep a name that many other writers have. I actually only decided to keep this name because I began writing posts before I bought the domain, and a few of my posts talked about my name. It’s a lesson I’ll learn for next time! (Because if the past predicts the future, then I’ll be back eventually… Just not sure when yet.)
The one other thing I hated about paying for my domain is that I had so many people spam my comments and follow me only to offer their services to me, probably because paying for domain name means I might pay for other things. I wasn’t a huge fan of it, especially as a broke student.
I think I’m not professional enough for WordPress; I would’ve been better suited to Blogspot. I’ve never used it before, but whenever I do return to writing, I’ll give Blogspot a try. As someone who wants to save the world one day, I thought about making a blog where I’d write my ideas of good deeds I’ve seen or would like to do for others someday, and write posts when I actually do those good deeds. It’s sort of something like this:
(Mr. Chi City was one of my favourite YouTubers, though he stopped posting videos :( .)
Maybe one day my followers from this blog (if there are any left) will find me on Blogspot, though I’d consider actually following the commandments I learned in blogging class!
I’d like to thank everyone who read my blog posts, liked them, and followed me. I know I didn’t post often or have many posts, but it really did matter to me. This is still the most successful blog I’ve ever had (I previously had two before this one), so this wasn’t exactly a failure even if this is the end.
I especially want to thank these followers:
At one point or another, each of you either liked more posts than I ever thought you would or commented and made my day, so thank you all. I’m sure I’ve forgot others because I’m a terrible person, but thanks for the support despite being terrible, haha. Maybe one day we’ll meet again on Blogspot!
