Can you believe that I’ve been blogging for ONE YEAR???
I definitely can’t. Some days I feel like I’ve been blogging for soooo much loooonger (you probably have all felt this, thinking, “AGAIN” each time you see a new post from me), and then other times I feel like I’ve been blogging for such a short time that it can’t even possibly be one year yet??
But I’m in AWE that I’ve made it this far. I honestly wasn’t that doubtful I’d make it to a year because I fell in love with blogging as soon as I started, but it means SO much to have made it as far as I have??? I did NOT EXPECT THIS.
And I don’t sound like it, but I’m EXTREMELY EXTREMELY excited about today!!! So excited that I can’t even express it my excitement! Or maybe that’s me being at a loss of words like I always seem to be.
In “celebration” of 1. YEAR. OF. BLOGGING. I’ll be listing a few things that happened to me because of blogging this past year, and then talking about my new design (HAVE YOU NOTICED YET), giving a few shoutouts, and some other things!
I would’ve hosted a giveaway but I’m literally broke. So. NEXT YEAR. I PROMISE. MAYBE.
Such as the trick for every inch of my ability to interact with humans* without being awkward to disappear each time when I interact with humans. Or the trick for mangoes to disappear each time I’m near them.
Okay I’m obviously the best magician ever someone hire me.
Abacadabra and mango magic tricks aside, I have a lot of cool tricks when it comes to BLOG POST FORMATTING!! And blog post designing!! And other blog-related things!!!
So I’ve decided to compile a list of some of my most useful tricks that I’ve discovered, all for you guys. Except not all of them, because I am selfish don’t really know any other tricks besides the ones mentioned in this post??
Oh, and I actually had this post planned before I posted my WordPress Improvements post last week, but then I saw how enthusiastic y’all were to learn about how I make text size bigger and center images in a row so THAT MADE ME MORE EXCITED FOR THIS POST.
For example, the fact that I don’t read fast enough, I don’t own enough books as I’d like, I don’t have nearly enough time to do anything I want.
(So apparently I don’t have enough of a lot of things???)
The point is, I have a lot of complaints. Too many. And WordPress isn’t exempt from any of my complaining nature, because I’m just too full of salt & discontentment that it overflows onto everything I come into contact with. Like mangoes, did you know I HATE mangoes????
So today, I’m going to talk about 9 things that I want WordPress to improve in, since I just have to release all my saltiness!! Hopefully these are all things you want to??? Otherwise that would be awkward and I’d be lying in my post title.
I’m ??? fine ????? I mean I’m not saying I’m freaking out, but I’m freaking out????
It literally feels like it was just YESTERDAY that it was 2017.
(Yes, I did just make that joke. Yes, I will leave now.)
To be honest, 2017 was a pretty good year!! Of course, it had its ups and downs like all years do, but I was introduced to so many things & people and I’ll always appreciate that.
December was a pretty GREAT month, despite the stress to read 100 books (which I managed)!!! School was off, I took a nice long break from writing, and I’m slowly climbing my way out of my reading slump.
I really don’t know why??? I think it’s because I’m pretty competitive, especially with myself. So I love to make goals and check them off and pretend I’m successful in life, when really, I am not.
Plus I have something to aim for! Instead of wandering around aimlessly and randomly, trying to figure out what to do in my life!
And if I fail at everything, it at least provides me with something amusing to laugh at, at the end of next year, wondering how the heck I thought I could succeed at any of this. (I have weird coping mechanisms???)
So to 1) pretend I’m successful, 2) give me SOME kind of purpose in life, and 3) have something to laugh at next year if I fail, here are my goals for the new year of 2018 (which is coming up way too soon who allowed this)!!!
This is my fourth (WHAT) post in my mini-series “Goodbye 2017”, which is the most unoriginal name you’ll ever find!! You can read the previous posts HERE (1), HERE (2), anddddd HERE (3). Go read them if you haven’t.
