On Blogging and the Good News — Hello Dot Com!

I started blogging not basically for my passion for writing, but for the main reason that I had always wanted to have my own site. I had always pictured myself having my own space away from my social accounts where I am connected with the people who know me. To be honest, I would often think of going anonymous so I could just spill all the unspoken thoughts that I had been keeping for years. I got sick and tired of keeping them all to myself I thought it would be better if I had a site where I can just express myself freely.

I was really determined to have one that I came to know wix. I managed to create a blog without watching or reading any tutorial stuff and made three posts which were about my experience at a popular lake in my province Leyte, my thoughts on “fitting in” and traveling, respectively. However, I found the platform complicated to navigate so I eventually left. I then discovered wordpress and luckily, even when it took me some time to figure this whole thing out, I liked it.

I have made a couple of posts already since I started, but I deleted some of them (while others are in the drafts section waiting to be edited as their photos vanished). I think they were crappy, (not like some of my blogs posted aren’t, lol) and some were just too personal and pointless. I didn’t go anonymous like I once thought of doing because I realized it is not bad at all if people know the face behind the blog, but I drew a line between what I can and I cannot share. Going anonymous doesn’t really guarantee a shield and protection, I reckon. With or without the face shown, one could get hurt if thrown bad words.

As time passed, I get to discover myself more, the things that my heart desires and would love to dare. From writing personal stuff, I started venturing into travel blog writing, and later, Iโ€™ll probably pursue reviews. Someone once told me that I shouldnโ€™t limit myself to only one thing and should allow myself to embrace other things and I have been drawing my inspiration from that aside from the people I look up to. Anyway, before this post gets longer and you get more bored reading, let me welcome myself to the dot-com world. A Blog or Two is finally a real website! Yey! ๐ŸŽ‰ย It was exactly 9 months ago (January 20th) when I posted my first blog and Iโ€™m so happy it didnโ€™t take me a year to get rid of the โ€œwordpressโ€ thing from my domain. Yay!ย ๐Ÿ˜…

I owe this to the people who unknowingly helped me to get here e.g. those who visit my blog and read my posts, you guys just donโ€™t know how much it means to me. To myself, I canโ€™t thank you enough for not giving up on this esp. at times when you just felt bad about your writing. I have so many things already that I started and eventually given up on, and I couldn’t be more glad it didnโ€™t become one of them. However, without God, this would not have been possible. I had a couple of chance to upgrade it before but today was the best one because I finally managed to let go of my worries. (2400 Php or $ 46.6 isnโ€™t that cheap for me, honestly.). Nonetheless, I look forward to what dot-com has in store for me. I hope it’ll help me fulfill, some, if not all of my goals. (If you’ve made it this far, I’m sorry if I’ve said a lot, but I hope it gave you a thing or two.) Thank you for reading and I hope you’ll subscribe to my blog!ย ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  1. Congratulations, Erma! It is really an awesome feeling to have a dotcom site. Wonderful. You have not bored us during this read, but just resurrected how you have grown with the blog. I am happy to be around, as if I have travelled the beautiful island you live in & have known you a bit.

  2. Hi Erma! Thanks for the tip earlier. I got excited reading this post because I too want to have the dotcom. ๐Ÿ™‚ I still have a long way to go, but I’m really really looking forward to it. How did you decide to finally get a personal plan?

    1. Hello. I’d always wished to have my own website, so I finally upgraded it as soon as I got the chance to put money into my paypal. A friend of mine offered me to do so since that time I didn’t have a bank. โ˜บ

      1. I can understand. To be honest, this isn’t my only blog. I have another and more personal blog. As you can see, I have review blogs here. I couldn’t change my title so I had to create another that suits me, my personality more, and I retained it for business purposes, and if audience matters, it’s here that it does, but my at other blog, it doesn’t.
