When I posted the most recent part of my Silently Watching story, WordPress sent me a notification.
It was my 500th blog post!
WOW! How did that happen?
It feels like a lifetime ago when I sat down and wrote then posted my first blog back at the end of 2013. Missed it – here’s the link December | 2013 | Coral McCallum (wordpress.com)
My New Year’s Resolution for 2014 was to post at least once a week to my new blog page and I’ve somehow managed to stick to it for over seven years.
The creative journey has wound its way steadily through the pages and although it took me until 15 April 2015 to finally publish my debut novel, Stronger Within, I am now six books in and working on the seventh. Stronger Within’s “birth” will always hold a special place in my heart. Stronger Within —-the dream’s come true! | Coral McCallum (wordpress.com)
My confidence has grown since those early blog posts (although I still get anxious about posting some articles) and over the years I have self-disclosed on a few topics. I’ve shared my innermost thoughts with you. I’ve shared poetry and fiction. I’ve introduced you to several fellow indie authors. I’ve tested the creative waters and introduced you to my characters to gauge the reaction. I’ve shared some hopefully interesting facts. I’ve shared my photography with you too.
And you know what? I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.
Writing for me, weaving that story, is my escape from this crazy real world we all live in. It’s become like oxygen to me, and I need to write to keep going.
So that said, I’ve a book to write and hopefully many more blog posts to share with you.
None of this would be possible without you though.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for supporting the first 500 blogs!
Love n hugs
