Blog talking

Without realising it, I have been blogging for 7 years now. I never knew that blogsphere was that big that time, as I were initially planned to pen down my personal thoughts on my favourite stuff in my blog. Little did I know that I enjoyed blogging and still blog till this day. 

Back then, I remember tags and awards were very popular and everyone was doing it. And then someone started to do meme and got others to link along.

7 years sound long but that ain't make me a blog expert. I am like others, humbly call myself a "blogger". Thoughout the years, I learnt, as I went along.  Experimented with new setting and layout, props and tools.  I did not really like my blog layout when I started it, but slowly, I made changes here and there.  Still not the best blog layout, but for the time being, I am pretty comfortable with what I have here. 

Along the way, I get to know friends who shared the same blogging interests and passions.  It was a joy to know everyone of you through blogsphere.  We may not meet in person, but it just feels like I know you guys that long and we shared and been through a lot.

Now, if you do not mind to share with me, "If you could go back in time before you started your blog, what would you advise your former self on blog?" *wink* Interesting question?? Everyone is welcomed to comment and share your thoughts. I would love to read them.

Lastly, I would like to wish my blog a "Happy 7th birthday!"  We have been through a lot together. You are not perfect, but you are mine no matter what. I love you!

7 years! Happy Birthday to your blog. I was reading blogs way before I started blogging. I knew nothing about blogging or even how to start blogging. If I could turn back time, I'd tell myself to google so I can save weeks and weeks of headache trying to start a blog. Back then I did not even know what GOOGLE is >_<

Happy 7th!!! I am so happy that you have done it this long and are continuing it. I find it so sad when I see blogs disappear, or for some reason people just stop. I always wonder why.
Here is to another 7....and another! :)

Happy blog anniversary Rose! :)

Always good to read about people who have been blogging for so long.

Hmm...good question there. If I could go back in time to April 2002, I would tell myself to get a domain which is easier to remember. Haha!

Seriously, that is very important and it makes a HUGE difference in terms of brand recognition. It should be easy to remember and I would have used another one of my other domains e.g. bumblingchef.com or something to that effect instead of sixthseal.com

That would be my advice to myself after blogging for 14 years. :)

Happy Bloggersary, dear! 7 yrs is a long time! Times flies & I've already been blogging for 5yrs! If I could turn back the clock, I would probably blog via wordpress. Not sure why, but people have been asking me to switch. Lol!
