Happy Birthday “Crazy Beautiful Reads” !!!
Posted by Cristina
I still can’t believe that a year ago today, this little cutie was born and it still lives on. ( Yes, I had my doubts whether it will work.) And it is all because of you beautiful people.I am grateful for each and every one of you.
I don’t even know where or how to begin the story that led to the “birth” of this little, beautiful, amazing and sometimes (maybe inspiring) personal blog named “Crazy Beautiful Reads”.
To be honest I’ve had a few withdrawal moments with creating the blog because I had no possible idea about how I’d wanted it to be – like what topics to write about, if people would like what I’m posting around and other stuff like that. I have thought through everything positive and negative, and come up with the conclusion : “HECK ! I CAN DO THIS AND I WILL ! THERE IS NO STOPPING ME,NOW !”. What could possibly go wrong ?! My motto has always been : If you don’t try, then you’ll never know !
So…I hopped on the horse,took the reins and went on the journey – to say so.
The process of learning to master WP was however, a little bumpy and funny. I said bumpy because – I was being a bit anxious to learn quickly so that I can write my first post – all in all I’ve had that adrenaline rush pouring through my veins telling me to asses everything in one single day, Crazy Beautiful Reads and all I’ve been able to do was confuse myself over minimal things. I was laughing at my own silly mistakes caused by me eagerness and excitement to have my own personal blog and finally be able to write. To finally be able to express myself the only way I can. Not that I can’t talk, but writing is more efficient and easy for me.
Giving my blog a name and stick with it…well,that’s a long story but I’ll try and make it short. First, I went with Crazy Beautiful, but then I thought better of it and changed it to what it’s called today. Choosing a name for your blog however, sometimes may prove to be rather difficult than writing an actual article. To me, this is more than just a simple blog. It represents me, as I tend to
Taking this chance and creating Crazy Beautiful Reads has brought me nothing more than happiness, a big sense of accomplishment and lots and lots of beautiful people that share the same things as I do. Whether it is abut books, movies, songs or random things you are all a big part of both, my blog and my life. Creating this blog gave me a big chance of getting to know some of the most talented writers out there. For some of them I have Lola to thank for !
I am also grateful for every comment and interaction I’ve had with you all. And am really happy to say that I may have inspired some of you in starting a blog. This would have to be the biggest achievement since I’ve started my blogging journey. Okay. My second biggest achievement, because the first would be the one regarding my writing. All the good feedback I got from accomplished writers, has me all over the place. I never thought that my writing would sound that good from an actual author, but then again…Life is full of surprises !
Last but not least, A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that’s been sticking around from the very beginning and SPECIAL Thank You to Shannon A. Thompson, Siobhan Davis, Paula Berinstein, Christa Wojo and Sigal Ehrlich. Thank you all So Much for the support, kind words, friendship and advices ! It is a big pleasure knowing you all and sharing ideas.
My Advice to everyone that wants to start a blog ?! Well…It’s simple. If you feel like this is what you want, then you should definitely just Go Ahead ! 🙂
