1 Year of Blogging

I did it. It's been exactly one year since I published my first blog post. To some it may feel like it's been one year since I posted my last blog post, I KNOW, I'M SORRY FOR NEGLECTING YOU. I spent the last few weeks of my summer actually relaxing and taking time for myself, and I went on a bit of a social media cleanse so it didn't feel right to put up a blog in the midst of that. Anywhoooooo, like clockwork I have digressed once again. Wouldn't be a Sierra's Sarcastic Spot post if I didn't.

For this blog post I was going to take the time to go through and highlight some of my favorite moments that I have shared, captured, or created through this platform, but I think I'd rather just ramble on for a bit if that's okay with you.

Flashback to a year ago I was a sophomore (phew, ya girl is still on track to graduate on time). I had some of the same friends, some different, some I have now but I didn't have then. I had just changed my major the following semester so this time felt like a new start. I was beginning my first social media class (the reason I started this blog in the first place) and I was feeling slightly nervous about maintaining a blog mostly because I had many doubts that I'd be any good at it. I didn't consider myself a terrible writer, but I just didn't think I had anything noteworthy or interesting to say and even if I did, I didn't think anyone would care to read it.

Flash forward a year from then and my feelings toward this blog have completely changed. I'm rarely nervous to post a blog post anymore, because at the end of the day it is all about what I'm feeling at the time. If people read it and laugh, or smile, or share it, it does make me feel good, don't get me wrong, but I'm not trying to go viral here. I'm simply just trying to explore a different creative outlet where I can put my weird, unorganized thoughts into words and occasionally someone might read them.

I love that I can put a bit of my personality into the world and people enjoy reading it. I love that I can be myself on here, and not feel any pressure to change who I am. I love blogging, I truly do, it has quickly become a passion of mine, one that I never even expected. My hope is to use this platform in my future career someday, and you reading this are helping me achieve that, and I cannot put into words how much that means to me. One of the most important things I feel humans should do in this life is find something that makes them happy, and do more of it. Unless you like killing people then maybe like don't???

This has been a lot of rambling, and not your typical post from me,  but it needed to be said. I usually thank you all at the end of every post for reading, commenting, and sharing, but from the bottom of my heart, thank you.  Anyway, thanks again, thanks a million, thank you, thank you, thank you. Here's to another year of below-average dad jokes, meme reviews, and self-deprecation as the underlying theme.

  2. Congrats on the one year of blogging Sierra! Like you when I first had to start writing blogs I was so nervous about posting. I didn't want my friends to look at what I wrote and didn't want them to criticize me for speaking my mind. But like you said we write about how we feel and what we think, and at the end of the day we have control. Again congrats on the one year and I hope to maybe one day keep a blog going that long!
