What happened?

 

There are a lot of things I regret but I guess losing www.claudneann.com is not one of them. I don’t exactly know why but last week I tried fixing it and believe me I couldn’t sleep the whole night because I just didn’t want to lose it but after spending two days looking for the problem and failing, I just decided to let it go. I am at a point where I just need a fresh start. Again. I know I just got www.claudneann.com last January and I’m starting from scratch again now but I just don’t want to dwell on things that I can’t really control. It gave me the chance to recharge, come up with new ideas, and a whole lot more. It made me want to be better. I want to produce better content. I want to learn a lot of things and sometimes it’s overwhelming me already but that’s just the truth. I want to be the best version of myself. I want to prove myself that I can do so much more. My blog is my safe space, my baby and my home. It’s all I ever had since I started. It became an outlet, a place where I can just share a piece of me without caring, and it gave me a chance to discover myself more. For some people, who constantly mocks bloggers, blogging may be a way to be famous, to look cool for them but all I know is that they will never realize how accomplished it feels when I publish a blog post, how freeing it feels to release my annoyance or my happiness, how time consuming blogging is that I don’t have time to overthink/for anxiety.

 

Blogging – it doesn’t have rules. You don’t have to be rich, to have gadgets, to travel often, to be good at speaking a certain language, or to be artsy. You don’t have to be something you’re not. You know, I used to be so conscious. I was always worried that people will judge my grammar. It was the primary reason why I hid my blog from people for years but at some point, you/we/I had to realize that I shouldn’t let their opinions stop me from doing what I love, from growing and from loving life. To love life is to do the things you love, no matter how useless and stupid other people think it is.

For the nth time, I am starting afresh. I don’t care. I just want to do things that can give me a chance to make me genuinely happy. I’m so grateful for all the love I received and I am receiving from the blogging community and it just motivates me to be so much more. If you have any ideas, suggestions, posts that you want to see from me, or if you just have anything that you wanna say, please let me know on the comments section below. I will forever be grateful.  And if you’ve reached this point, thank you.

    Had the same thoughts on blogging when I was just starting. I was always insecure and hesitant with what to post and what to share but then I found the real reason why I blog and that’s because I love it and I love what I’m doing.
    Congratulations on your fresh start!!! Your new layout is very nice and pretty. Keep blogging!! 😉

      Hi, Margaux! Thank you for dropping by!
      I agree! I just don’t want to let my anxiety stop me from doing what I really love and besides how will I improve my writing skills if I won’t practice and write? Right?! Haha! So instead of stressing myself over it, I’m writing and reading more to improve it. Awwh! You’re too kind! Thank you!

      Hi Ate Kei!
      I just got so stressed over it and I knew I shouldn’t let anything stress me that much because it leads to more anxiety. It’s toxic! Thank you ate, I’m kind of really decided to pursue blogging, I wanna learn so many things and also improve my writing skills. Thank you for always helping me out although makulit na talaga ako minsan! Hahahaha. Yes ate! We’ll keep blogging! Huhu I love this comment. T_T

      NO MORE REDIRECTS. HAHAHAHA.

      I know, it was so stressful because I didn’t want to let it go but I guess I got something out of it. I’m more motivated to create better content. Yay! Thank you so so much!

    We had the same feeling. I was VERY conscious about people reading my blog back then. Mainly because of my English construction and grammar. You know how people can be rude sometimes when calling out your mistakes. Sometimes it’s not even constructive criticism at all. But like you, I’d outgrown it. 🙂

    I LOVE YOUR BLOG, by the way. I always do even the previous one.

      OMG yes I agree! I can take constructive criticism but some people are just plain rude. I’m glad you’d outgrown it. Thank you so much for always being so kind to me, Dianne! I’m really glad I met a lot of great people through this platform. I really am.

    I know the feeling—I lose sleep when the blog needs fixing, too. I think it’s a wise move that you switched to this domain because it makes more sense (with the i) in it. 😉 Tell you what—just keep blogging ( and read a lot, be it other blogs, books, or just mere articles on the web), and you’ll be surprised at how much you’ll improve your writing skills. Although I’ve always been articulate in English, both in writing and speech, learning doesn’t stop there. Reading not only widens your vocabulary; it will inspire you, deepen your knowledge, and it will make you a better communicator. 🙂

    P.S. I didn’t know you had me added onto your Blog Roll! Thank you, C.A.! <3

      Hi, ate! First, I want to thank you for visiting my blog and you even left me a comment! It really means a lot. I really want to learn more and improve my writing skills and honestly, it always bothered me because I was worried that people might judge me but thank you for the advice, it motivated me to read more! I really appreciate this, ate. Of course, you’d be on my blogroll! I really admire you and I love your blog!

      Thank you so much!

      Hi Kai! Thank you so much for visiting and also I want to thank you again for giving me a theme before! Honestly, papalit palit lang ako eto and yung binigay mo mostly kapag naiinspire akong pag aralan silang kalikutin. Haha. Thank you so much. I’m really grateful to have met such amazing people through blogging. Never ko naisip na may mga genuine people akong makikilala through this platform but I did and I’m truly blessed.
