Hey there LoveBugs,
Today marks the faithful day I started my blog journey. Yup! Today is my blogiversary.
Congrats are indeed, in order. On October 10th, as a result of the encouragement of my friends, faith of my parents and God-given talents, I start writing in a public forum. I have been writing since I could hold a pencil. At five years old, I distinctively remember telling my Mom I would publish a book one day. To date, I have self-published two books (click the hyperlink to check me out on Amazon) of poetry and am looking for a publisher for my upcoming Sci-Fi Romance trilogy.
I rarely every brag or talk about myself, BUT today, I’m going to give myself a pat on the back. It’s hard work starting, doing, accomplishing your own thing. Since starting my blog, jwerd.com, I self-published, I experienced the loss of my grandmother, I ended a 3-year relationship, I have graduated with a BA in Entrepreneurship. I joined the Peace Corps and am serving in Nicaragua. I moved my website to a different hosting site. (Which believe me, made me lose several nights of sleep.) I taught myself page analytics and other laborious abilities that have paid off to over 3,000 page views!
I would be nothing without you, dear readers. You are my heart. I am overjoyed my blog is read in over 83 countries worldwide. It does my heart good to know you value what I have to say. Keep sharing my works, keep liking, keep emailing/messaging me encouraging words. You guys are truly irreplaceable.
Now do me a big favor and hit that subscription button honey, this is only just the beginning of my writing dynasty.
