2 years - That’s how long my blog (Just Totally Vague) has been around on Tumblr. Seems like yesterday when I posted my very first blog entry (last Dec. 27, 2009). Can’t help get a bit teary-eyed as I read through the archives. :)
Truth be told, I was never really fond of writing & putting all my thoughts & feelings into words, let alone lay ‘em all out in a blog for everyone to read! I thought that was ludicrous. People buy diaries, write on them, shove them under their pillows, then close up shop. So why expose your every heart’s desire (or disgust) to strangers’ eyes?It all began when a friend & batchmate of mine, Precious, introduced me to to this site a couple of years ago, before Tumblarity became such a massive deal for most bloggers. (For those who aren’t aware of this, it’s a ranking method determined by the number of followers you have, the number of posts you’ve made, the number of times someone has “liked” your posts, and the number of times you’ve been reblogged)
As the noob that I was, my whole life on here revolved around reblogging. I thought it was THE thing to do. Saaad. Hahaha.
My blog wasn’t really much of a “blog” until April of 2010, when I realized it needed transformation — so I decided to redesign & tweak it myself & make it a personal diary of random & significant events of my life - what I should’ve done from day one. What started out as a *RE-blog* is now a personal blog! Emphasis on *personal* - Yes. Although one might say my blog’s all fashion-related, this has been a personal blog ever since. I never intended to just focus on one aspect (fashion) because aside from that, I equally love art, photography & music! Simply put, this blog is an extension of my thoughts - what I’m thinking about, learning and experiencing in life, who I am, and what I love. ♥ And oh, just in case you’re wondering why my blog is “Just Totally Vague”, well the answer is quite simple. It is totally vague! Everything’s uncertain. You can never predict what I’ll be posting next! That’s the the beauty behind the title, I guess. ;)
Of course, this blog wouldn’t be complete if it weren’t for the followers I’ve gained in the past 2 years. It’s such a nice feeling when you earn followers instead of begging them to follow you. You, my dear readers, are the reason why my blog still exists to this very day. :’) Your comments & messages saying how much you love my blog or how much my blog & my DIY’s have inspired you to create your own are just truly heartwarming. I appreciate every single one of them, I swear! :) It just feels great to know that, in a way, I’ve made an impact on someone’s life.Little things like that just makes me happy! ♥ :) My blog isn’t the best. However, I always make it a point to come up with entries that are worthy of your time. As much as possible, I also TRY my best to inject a bit of humor to my posts just so I won’t bore you guys. Haha. :p
Okay, this is getting kind of
long & wordy. -_- All I wanted to say is just thank you to all those who have been a part of my blog’s “journey”! I can’t thank you enough! Here’s to more years of blogging! =)
P.S. Never thought of putting up an
anniversary giveaway since I really am not into that. Not that I’m against it or anything. It’s just me. I’m weird like that! Hahaha :)) Also, I’m saving myself from the hassles of randomly picking & sorting out the winners. HEHEHE. *insert troll face*
And oh, it’s my first time to add GIF’s so yay me! HAHAHA :P
This is a queued/ scheduled blog post since I’m in Bohol right now for our Annual Family Reunion. Too busy to surf the net! :)) Hope you’re all doing great!
