I have been blogging online for about 3 months now. My first post was at the end of May. It was titled: …and so my blogging journey begins. I have really enjoyed blogging, and I love reading comments and knowing that people are actually reading (or skimming through) what I have to write.
I have always written my thoughts down in journals and random scraps of paper (which have sadly made their way into the garbage bin!). However, I have a box full of some journal writings starting when I was about 10 years old.
I have always wanted to put my life story into a novel. Not necessarily for other people to read, but for me to feel complete. It’s weird… I know! I have gone through very challenging and rewarding life experiences, and I expect more to come everyday.
Since May, I have had 2908 views on my site, with the busiest day at 139 views. This was for my Post titled: In Memory of Derek. A HUGE thank you to everyone one is reading my blog!
It is one of my goals (101 Things to do in 1001 Days) to have over 200 views on my site in one day. Maybe I should pick a special day and harass everyone I know to look just ONCE! 😉
I am thrilled to have 72 comments! I know it’s hard to put your name, email address, and words on my posts… but comment more! I love it!! =) I’m pretty sure that once you get the hang of it, you will really like it too *^.^*
So… within 3 months I have created 87 posts on this site. Some contain random babbling, some contain my opinions on games, and others I’ve poured my heart into. When it’s all said and done, I love my little blog!
Someone sent me a message yesterday saying that I sound like I have a good life!
I work really hard and I’ve struggled a lot to have my life. I suppose it is a good life. I am able to wake up and go to starbucks for coffee (which I should totally stop doing because it’s about $7 a day for 2 coffees!). I get new video games all the time! I have a job and I sincerely love it! I don’t spend money on much else. I live a comfortable life and I spend my free time during evenings and weekends playing games. I’ve never EVER had anything just handed to me. I suppose that has shaped who I am and how I value certain things and not others. Hmm… I appreciate everything I have and I know how quickly it can all be gone. Yup! It’s a good life! It works for me at least! =)
Within these 3 months, I have made some pretty cool friends! One of my first online girl-friends is Kari Rose (Cori). She has an amazing blog which I follow almost daily :3 She inspired me to do the 101 Things in 1001 Days, and I recently saw a “MeMe” challenge that she started which looks like a lot of fun too! We started our friendship through playing games, then chatting on msn, and now she is my Penpal!! I have received one package from her and I just sent my first one back. I’ve never had a penpal before!
I love playing Left4Dead2 with the Karma’s and their tweets on twitter are cute! If you have twitter, you can follow me @themidnitefaery if you want. The Karma’s are a wicked team to play Versus with!
I was reading through other game blogs when I found Turnsy1984‘s. I added him on Twitter and we have sent a few messages back and forth! He is one of my newest friends on Xbox Live but haven’t played together yet! I love reading about his experiences in the UK. He writes honestly and openly about what it’s like to be a gamer from a guys point of view!
My blog has also re-connected me with friends I have lost touch with. I have loads of “friends” on Facebook and online that I have known over the years, but it usually just stays there. One of my old best-friends, Gina, wrote a beautiful comment on FB (which I totally wish she posted here). It was about how she has always known me, but with my blog she has been able to get inside my head and really know me. I can’t wait to meet up with her next month when she comes into Vancouver! Another friend, Relan… I was never super close to her in the past, but we knew each other through our friends. Over the past couple months, I’ve gotten to know her better, and she is super amazing! I will forever have respect for her and love her because of her words of encouragement and support through my mourning (of my brother’s death). She should be in town today (after a huge greyhound trip) so hopefully we can grab a coffee! ❤
There are loads of people that I would love to give tribute to. I wouldn’t be who I am without sharing experiences with them. Everyone who has been in my life, at one point or another, has impacted who I am.
Again…thank you to everyone who is reading my blog. I hope you find what I have to write entertaining, and if you have any requests or suggestions, I would love to hear them!
❤ Midnite Faery
