On January 25th, 2017, I started my journey here again for the umpteenth time. Here’s what we progressed to:
We started with 41 monthly views
We ended with 307 ( the highest being this month)
We started with 1 post
We ended up with 77 (as of today )
We started with 1 follower
We ended with 100 followers ( Thank you, thank you, thank you).
Being a blogger, it’s so easy to get caught up in what everyone else is doing and better yet, what everyone else has that sometimes, we begin to neglect what can do and what we have. Sometimes, I definitely do fall into this…many times I do but looking at how far what God has “given” me has brought me, makes me proud. I am grateful for the passion for creating and creativity that the Lord has given me, the platform that is WordPress that he has allowed me to use year after year and the people who have stopped by to visit and/or express their thought(s) on one of my post.
One of the biggest values of this WorkWithIt, Girl is “contentment“; something that I struggle with daily and frankly, I even let my lack thereof of it stop me from blogging for a minute but I am glad I came backThere are truly gains in it….that being said, for the year of 2018, there are a few things I’d love to do:
- I want to post every month & every week
- I would love to be blessed with a publication elsewhere
- I would love to invest in some way for this blog ( attending an event, buying a domain, whatever I might be able to do)
- Interact more with the WordPress community
- Double the monthly views
- Post a video on YouTube
Sound’s like a lot, right ? But nothing’s impossible if its within the will of God and I am not lazy about pursing these goals. All in all, Thank you all for joining me in the first year of WorkWithIt, Girl. I thought of closing this blog down, as usual, but I am glad I didn’t. Onward to the first year anniversary we go!
WorkWithIt, Girl: As always, Make It Yours, Make It Work! See you in 2018 ( God willing).
