[I was a little MIA with the blog that was because I was cooking something new for weeks now but then it dawned on me that it’s now October (and I didn’t even get to do a monthly recap for September; epic fail, self, epic fail!).] 😥

But it’s October, unbelievably so, and this month always reminds me of number—age. My mom’s birthday, my sister -in-law, ME, and then my blog. In a way I should give this milestone a bit of importance as I’m now officially blogging for five years! Yes, half a decade ago I brave the current; installed was for me then a mind boggling CMS—WordPress—and wrote my thoughts on books I read. Ah, good times, people, good times. It was quite an achievement for me if I say so myself.

This is one of the things I’m proud of myself: I blog continuously. And I’m happy regardless of how little my success is. The reason I started was for me. I want an outlet. I want a space of mine where I can write my awkward opinions on things. I want some literary catharsis. I’m quite delighted and thankful that I pushed myself before even with my ever present doubts whenever I’m venturing into something new. It’s fun to learn new things. Continually learn new things! 😉 Every time I hit publish and add another ramblings to my repertoire, it makes me happy!

Now, this blog changed directions last August. I didn’t see that as a hiccup, I saw it as an opportunity to expand. And to change. And change isn’t a bad thing. I’m aware that this sudden decision of mine gave some reason for people to leave. But as I said before, it’s for me! I’m happy with the changes I made, contended even and in the future regardless whether the move I’ll make is strategic or not, I wouldn’t dwell too much on it! I’m pleased! I’m satisfied! And this is what I love about my own style of blogging!

So yeah, I’m not hosting a big bash because that ain’t my style y’all, but I want to do something special (that’s all I’m capable of). I might post some things that are, well special? Or personal? (because it also happens to be my birth month too; how’s that for double celebration?!). You’ll see, you’ll see! 😎

  7. The new look is gorgeous, Mitchii! How do you keep coming up with these completely inspired designs? Swear, I’ve run out of ideas for mine.

    Congrats on 5 years- that’s so amazing! Honestly, I love that you’ve allowed so much change on your blog, taking it to the direction you want to take it and changing courses when you feel it’s needed. You’re still blogging and that’s what matters. Many many more years of blogging to come for you, I hope!

    • Mitchii G. says:

      Aw~ thank you Hazel! <3 It's not completely new I recycled bits and pieces of my older designs. I agree, I think I didn't just fall in with books but with blogging, too.

      Thank you again, and many more blogging years for the both of us!!! xD

    Uwaah! Congratulations! 5 years is a lot ><
    Please continue on this endeavor- honestly find your layout designs stunning and posts interesting to read. I've always been a fan of these kind of styles and you're one of the few existing ones that is still keeping their page alive. I only bumped into this link from twitter and even though I don't get to visit a lot, I always get that little squee deep inside whenever i pass by. Kudos!!

    • Mitchii G. says:

      That is so sweet of you Nxia. *glomps* I really appreciate every kind of support and appreciation from every one. The thought that you like my posts means so much already. Thank you again. <3333
