TABL Turns Two!! (Actually Three. My bad)

Hello everyone!

Not much going on here but MY BABY IS TWO( ETA its actually THREE)! Admittedly, I haven’t been writing in here as much as I’d like to, but I’m glad to still be here. As always, I’d like to thank everyone for reading/skimming/lurking/visiting the blog, even if there hasn’t been much content published.

Wow… two three years is a lot of time (duh). I started this blog as something to motivate me to read my set novels for my studies but it completely evolved into something not different, but better. Here, I can share and express what’s on my mind regarding literature, and although I should do this more, see what other bloggers are writing about. WordPress has been a godsend to my life, and having a blog as a writer has its perks.

Since writing is going through a major shift from print to digital, it’s a great advantage for any writer to have a blog. This is because with the skills we learn from having one i.e HTML, SEO, content management systems, possibilities with jobs are endless (take that, naysayers that think Arts is a rubbish degree!). Plus, aside from journaling and working on manuscripts or articles, a blog is one more medium to exercise writing.

Anyway, I’m gonna celebrate with a glass (or two, or five) of some cheap Cabernet Sauvignon. I’ve got a night shift on tomorrow, so I’ll be just right getting on the sauce tonight (winky face emoji). But for now, ciao!

Gratitude

Hello everyone!

How is everybody?  Good?  Great?  Absolutely shithouse?  Well, wherever you are, I just hope things go well for you in your day.

Anyway, I just want to write this post to say, “HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY, TABL!”

Just a year ago, I was on the fence as to whether I would start this blog or not.  I was going through a difficult time in my life and wasn’t exactly sure whether this will be a long-lived project or another abandoned one.  But now, I’m just glad to be here, still writing, despite my posts being sparse.  I totally enjoy being on WordPress, blogging and doing what I love the most: writing.

So, thank you, thank you to all the followers of TABL.  Even though we don’t really communicate much, I’m just grateful for your presence.  You’re all a bunch of talented, wonderful writers and I wish you all the best in your blogging endeavours.  I am glad to have encountered you all.

Thank you to all the readers that come and view this blog.  Although this is a small blog with not much activity going on, I’m thankful for whatever hits the blog get regardless.  (Side note: I’m not really someone who is after clout and a bajillion hits/followers, this is a site that is pretty much a literary diary that so happens to be public, so whoever sees it, sees it)

Again, I’m just glad to be here and glad to be doing this.  I’m really appreciating what blogging is and seeing just what is out there in the WordPress world (or should I say, WorldPress?).

Anyway, I would have celebrated TABL’s first birthday with a beer, but it’s currently winter here in Australia and the region that I live in can get fairly cold, so a hot chocolate will be the celebratory drink of choice tonight.

An enormous thank you to everyone who viewed/read/followed TABL.  Thank you for being on this journey with me.  I definitely enjoyed my year of blogging, and hope for many more years to come!
