It’s my 1 year blog anniversary today!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
When WordPress informed me so kindly about this with this lovely pic:
I was like:
I honestly never would have thought that this whole blogging experience of mine would last a whole year!!!
I get bored pretty easily lol…
But it did and I am still doing it! Loving it!
When I started blogging last year, I didn’t really know what I wanted to do with a blog.
Just a little space to place my photos and a bit of my writings on I guess.
I wasn’t planning on showing you guys so much of me, so I started quite shy.
As you can see, it’s in Dutch. Lol, how could I know most of you speak English around here? I had never blogged before and I didn’t really want to connect with people either.
Yea, I’m weird, I know…
Anyways, where was I? O yea! It’s my first Blog anniversary! 🙂
Can’t get enough of that lol! 🙂
Funny thing, I did connect on here. With some amazing people!
I have always been quite on my own, never really belonged somewhere. (other than my family)
But to my surprise, I found some friends on here with who I really connected!
Maybe because you’re my kind of crazy? Lol. 😉
Anyways, because of some blogs I read and people I talked to, I took a really big step (for me at least) to show you a bit of who I am.
I wrote The Hardest Post For Me Ever
Throughout this year of blogging, I met amazing people, met friends, lost friends, learned a hell of a lot about writing and about myself, got to know myself better and became more and more comfortable with who I really am.
Because of what I have been through and my PTSD, I had actually forgot who I really was.
But now I am proud to be me! 🙂
A lot can happen in one year. (actually, a lot always happens in one of my years, my life is kind of a crazy rollercoaster!) but a lot can also change in one year. And for me, it really has. I am not a teacher anymore, but I am a writer who’s about to publish two books.
A poetry book in English and a fantasy novel in Dutch.
And somehow I gained more than 600 followers now! Really awesome!
I got awards and dedications which I all love so very much.
You can find those over HERE
I have never felt this strong and confident in my life. And writing dark poetry really helps me to stay positive and at least a bit of sane! 🙂
Before I started to write dark poetry, the darkness was already inside me. Always lurking right beneath the surface, waiting till I lost my strength so it could consume me. Because I let it out now every once in a while by writing, I was able to tame the beast and be the person who I am today. Just Me, without restrictions or suppression.
So I write mostly dark now. And I love it! 🙂

I am very certain that I couldn’t have done all this without all of you, so I really would like to thank you all for sticking by me and support me on this crazy journey!
And I also would like to thank some of you who I really consider to be close friends now. You know who you are! Thank you so much for everything you have done for me. I luvz ya lots!
And I love blogging! 🙂
So here’s to another year of blogging!
Lots of Love
