I’ve always wanted to write when I was younger. I wanted to be on the school newspaper team, and I eventually did and I got so happy about it! Some of you may know that I used to have another blog called claramagalona.com, and it obviously didn’t work out for me at the time. I didn’t really know what to write about, and what I could talk about. Then the time came that my domain and site expired which meant I couldn’t use it unless I renewed my membership, which I clearly didn’t do. So, now that I am a bit older than I was before, I know what to write about, what to say and what to post here.
Blogging or writing in general is a wonderful way to express yourself. I’ve been blogging for almost a year now, and I am definitely enjoying it!
Ever since I started blogging (even before Blogger and WordPress), I never imagined that I would have any readers or at least people that would look at my site. I just expected that I would be ignored and that people didn’t take me seriously when I said I wanted to write and blog. But now that I surprisingly have readers, I’ve never been happier! It’s such a great feeling to know that people want to know and read what goes on in my head and my life.
