I Can’t Believe It…

OH… MY… GOSH… So it’s a lazy Saturday for me and I’ve been trying to be productive. I cleaned up a few things, worked some more on my blog, and got some new posts ready. I was watching the Party Of Five on Netflix when I was on my WordPress app and decided to check my blog stats…

If you read my What I Accomplished in 2017 and my Blog Goals for 2018 blog post, you would know my ultimate blog goal was to reach 10,000 pageviews in one month.

10,000 is a big deal in my head. When I first started my blog a year and a couple of months ago, I had no idea people would actually be interested in what I had to say.

I put so much work into my blog. And a lot of people will ask me how much money I make and I definitely don’t make that much. But it’s never been about the money for me, I love taking photos, coming up with blog post ideas, writing posts, answering comments, and designing graphics. I love being able to share my ideas and my take on things with similar people.

And when I looked at my blog stats for the month of february, my hand honestly covered my mouth because I was so suprised.

My blog hit 10,067 pageviews in the month on February…


I have so many things that I want to say but I’ll just say this…

THANK YOU. Thank you to everyone who has supported me even though some people made me doubt myself and make me feel embarrased for having a blog. And you know what? I’m glad I didn’t listen to them in the end, because I have an amazing audience on my blog that cares what I have to say and keeps coming back for more of my rambling.

Thank you to everyone who read my posts and keep coming back for new posts every week. I couldn’t thank you all enough.

Thank you to everyone who has left a nice comment on my blog. Thank you to everyone who has told me that they love my blog and I should keep it up. Because those comments always make me even more sure that all my hard work is paying off.

And thank you to everyone who is reading this right now… through all these rambling words, because I can’t thank you enough.

And if you have big dreams to accomplish a passion of yours too; I would tell you to go for it. Because as I’ve recently really experienced, life is unexpected, and it can be short. As clichรฉ as it sounds, it’s true.

Don’t be afraid to do something because you are afraid of what other people might think.

It’s so crazy to think that I reached my goal for 2018 in the first month of 2018. It’s crazy how things work out.

So if you are a blogger, or maybe a YouTuber, or a writer, or anything else for that matter, my biggest piece of advice for you is: If you have a strong passion for something, and if you put in so much effort and hard work into something and it doesn’t feel like work, and you enjoy it. I would tell you the countless hours of your hard work and passion will pay off.

And if you dream big and work hard, you can achieve whatever you put your mind to.

Never stop dreaming.

    Well done Taiya! I was wondering if you had any tips for getting a successful wordpress blog. I switched from Wix and I was hoping that you would have recommendations…
    Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜‰
