This blogging thing has been a work in progress. Some of you are OG readers and have been with me since the beginning. The beginning that was Sydney Sundays. I started that during the second semester of my sophomore year in undergrad and maintained it for about a year and a half. I took a break and then decided to rebrand myself with a lifestyle blog, hence SydneyUmeri.com.
But whether you were there from day one or this is your first time, I want to take a moment to thank you for supporting me, my blog, and for reading what I put out every Tuesday and Thursday.
Blogging isn’t easy, but it’s my passion. I love writing, storytelling, and showing myself in a different light.
While that is all great, ultimately, blogging isn’t all about me. Like many things, it takes two to tango and SydneyUmeri.com would be nothing without its readers. Partly because, I can’t tell you how many times kind words from readers and friends have kept me going.
Again, I blog because I love it, but I’d be lying if I told you I don’t look at the numbers. How many people read my post? How many people liked it? Was it well received? Should I have posted that? It all runs through my mind, and on days where I’m discouraged and feel like I shouldn’t blog because no one is really reading my stuff, it never fails, a reader, friend, acquaintance or stranger will reach out and comment on how much they enjoy reading my content.
Words cannot explain how much that moves me because it makes blogging worth it. I blog because I love it, but I love blogging because I can touch the lives of others through it.
So I just wanted to thank you guys for continuing to inspire me to do what I love even when I question if I should. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read my posts, and thank you for supporting my passion. SydneyUmeri.com would be nothing without you all.
Until next time, get up, get moving, and live your best life!
