2018 Blog Summary

As time goes by, I realized that it’s fun to do flashback every a little while, just to see what you’ve already accomplished along the way, to review what things are okay, what need more improvement, and so on. (btw, have you guys read about our 2017 Blog Summary? see here)

I always like things like contemplating and such. But, not all the time! Just in an enough amount so you enjoy the nostalgic a little bit, but not the bad things. No good thing come from digging the past, believe me. Yours is today. Not the past nor the future. Same with that, imagining the future in the right amount will give you hopes and chances; it’s kind of easing your mind that some good days will come, even if something is not okay today. But again, no good thing come from imagining too much. Yours is today; give a pinch of sweet from past and a sprinkle of hope for future to bear with it, that’s it. Live for today.

  1. Such a cool and in depth analysis! How did you do the pie charts, did you have Google Analytics or create them yourself? Really useful! I also find it fascinating how the audience location differs from blog to blog.
    It is great to see your blog grow year by year, keep it up πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you to stopping by! I created the pie charts by myself using Microsoft Excel. Not obsessive, just so into it, lol… Yeah, the audience varied a lot… Since i’m iving in Asia, i find it’s very fascinating to know that somebody from Africa come by to my blog… πŸ™‚

      Btw, how did you achieved so many followers and views on your blog? Did you use adsense or put many tags on each post (is this affect the search on google?) or something else?

      1. I wish I was as good with Excel haha, since school my skills have dwindled. You have people from all over the world stopping by which is great πŸ™‚

        I have achieved this following by working on my blog for a few hours each day, really it is down to just the amount of time I am on it and getting my name out there as much as possible. Liking, commenting, reading blogs all notifies people of your blog and is a great way to have conversation and it was only after I started being more ‘full time’ here that I started to see a significant change πŸ™‚
