I started to have an idea about blogging back in 2010 when I became fond of reading blogs, articles, and knowing inspiring bloggers. I am a quiet and introvert person, I spend most of my time alone. I hide my real emotions as much as I can, but it wouldn’t be possible without my diary where I can vent my feelings. I guess, being an INFJ is what makes me easily love blogging.
I started to create my personal blog on Tumblr back in 2012, as an extreme introvert, this became like a home for me. I’m so happy to discover my love for blogging, not only has it helped me express myself, it helps me to discover more about myself and the world around me.
I was dealing with too much loneliness and emptiness back then, and blogging has become my ultimate medicine. I write for myself, it was merely for my own pleasure. I write for fun, I write not because I possessed a talent, but because I want and have to. And I’m happy that there were people who have been touched by the honesty of my melancholic compositions. I couldn’t imagine that my blog has readers who will find beauty in my loneliness.
After spending almost 3 years on Tumblr — I’ve decided to move to WordPress. Three months ago when I challenged myself to take my blogging to a whole new level. I want to expand my blogging experience and abandon the dark world I’ve created on Tumblr.
Perhaps, some of you might be wondering why am I spending time and money for my blog, specifically for having my domain name and website theme, when I’m not even a great and popular blogger. Well, it’s just the same how many people spend money for their favorite sports, books or collections. I blog because I love it — not because it gives me money, popularity or title.
“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.” ― Maya Angelou
