I’ve very much enjoyed my first attempt at blogmas, my ‘Sporadic Blogmas’ this year. I know I haven’t posted everyday, but I did warn you that was never going to happen. I couldn’t keep up the momentum and I’d probably run out of interesting things to say. That’s if anything I say is ‘interesting’! It has given me the chance to enjoy Christmas in a diffferent way, and the opportunity to blog in a different way too. I’m usually very focused on disability and access, and although I still am, and there’ll be lots more of that to come next year. Next year is next week. Next week is 2018. Can you believe it?! I’ve branched out a little during blogmas, and I liked it.
Although 2017 hasn’t been my favourite year in life, it has been my favourite in blogging. Not that I’ve been blogging long, I only started in 2016. I still feel very new to it and like I haven’t got a clue what I’m doing technically. I’m learning though! And it’s fun.
Blogging is becoming a part of me and I’m becoming more through my blog. It’s scary putting yourself out there, your thoughts and opinions. But it’s amazing when I get an idea and get lost in it and write and get all passionate and inspired. Then it’s out there, floating around in the clouds, for everybody and nobody at the same time.
I enjoy blogging more and more as time goes on. One of my main loves, and a huge discovery for me this year is the blogging community and the interaction blogging creates.
I wouldn’t say figures and stats are important to me, but readers and feedback. So in a way that means figures are crucial. I write because I enjoy the process (mostly), but also because I want others to enjoy it or find it useful.
I’m going to end blogmas and this year on a high. With a list of my top 9 posts from 2017. They’ve all made the list for different reasons. So it’s not really a rated list. They are all on the same level. All winners. As such they will not be numbered.
