Birthdays and acheivements are always a time to celebrate and today the Popsy Chic blog turns 1.
As I write this article, I am sitting in Cape Town, thinking of how much encouragement I needed to start the Popsy Chic Blog, how brave I was to put myself out there, how I watched countless number of Youtube videos on how to design the theme and code the backend of the site. But I did it (high five), the Popsy Chic Blog is now turning 1!
In case you were wondering, blogging has always been something I contemplated. Like many things in life, I always put off the idea. In 2016, I set myself two goals. The first was make the blog happen and the second was to run my first half marathon in 2017 at the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon (OMTOM).
I believe in keeping to my word and I believe in working hard at what I want to achieve! Today the blog turns 1, tomorrow I run my very first half marathon in Cape Town (OMTOM)! I want to be an inspiration, firstly to myself and then to all of you out there!
Now to achieve OMTOM 21.1km and to dream bigger and bigger!
After a year of writing my blog, here is what I learnt:
- Be Honest;
- Blog about things that mean something to you;
- You not going to inspire everyone all of the time with your content, deal with it;
- Give your goals a chance;
- Be fearless; and
- Keep to your word
Thank you to each and everyone of you who have supported my blog and who continue to support it. I think I have mentioned in one of my previous posts “Why I Blog” is if I am able to make a difference in a small way in ones life, I am happy. I am hoping that my pieces continue to inspire people out there!
