On writing and blogging

I’ve always enjoyed writing. Whether it’s on my blog or my planner, writing has been a passion of mine all my life. I don’t write the most inspiring things nor do I come up with quote-worthy lines. What I write, however, are honest words

I try to write as honestly as possible. I do my best not to filter my thoughts and just let it all come flowing out of me. Sometimes I get my point across, sometimes I don’t. Whichever path my writing leans towards, one thing is for sure, I continue to write. I continue to improve in a craft that I am truly and deeply passionate about.

Passion

I’ve been blogging on WordPress for roughly four years now. My blog started out as a journal of sorts. I tried to document my journey as I tried to lose weight. I shared recipes and facts about food. I also wanted to be one of those bloggers. I wanted to write for a living.

Years have passed and why and what I blog have changed. Nowadays, I generally blog about what I like. No niche in mind, I just type out all my thoughts and hit that publish button. The lesson I’ve learned – writing is what I am truly passionate about. It doesn’t matter what I write about, just as long as I do it. I get a sense of fulfillment incomparable to anything.

Inspiration

Because I love to write, I love to read. I have read tons of books, blogs, articles, and poetry. Constantly reading has made me more aware of different dispositions people have in life. I know a lot of stories and ideas too. Some ideas stick with me more than the rest. It inspires my life.

These ideas make me a better person. I know it does because it challenges me to change the way I think and always look for more than what meets the eye. I’d like my blog readers to feel the same way whenever they read something I post. I’d like to inspire my readers to challenge the stigma. I may have simple and honest words but my goal is far deeper. 

Growth

Change is the only constant thing in the world. As much as I want to stay here in my comfort zone, I will be spreading my wings cutting costs and will be trying out a different hosting platform. The change shouldn’t affect anything dramatically. In fact, everything should still be the same. I just wanted to tell my story on how writing and blogging have completely changed my life. From a girl whose only passion was to read, I am now a woman who reads, blogs and creates content that hopefully inspires others.


I said a lot of things but really all I wanted to say was I moved hosting, lol. If some of my posts, links or media are messed up, that’s the reason why. I want to continue writing and that’s all that really matters for me. I hope I did all the things correctly and traffic is getting directed to my self-hosted site and not to my WordPress site. If you see any issues please let me know. Otherwise, enjoy my humble site. <3

  1. Ooooh. So that’s why you disappeared from my WP reader and I was having a hard time trying to follow again. Haha congrats, though! And keep on writing!

    • Hahaha thanks for following again, lol. Jetpack support said that you should be able to see my posts on your reader though. Hopefully, I’ll get it sorted out. 🙁

  2. Taray na ng comment box! I still see your posts on my Feedly and it leads to your self-hosted site so I think it’s in good working order. Congrats Kat!

    • Hahahaha! Buti naman nakikita mo pa din sa Feedly. Worried din ako baka ano na pinaggagawa ko, di pa naman ako techy. 🙂

  4. I’ve never really blogged with the intention of earning any money from it. Haha I don’t wanna ruin the enjoyment I get from just writing whatever I want, and I feel like being a blogger/influencer will stress me out and induce anxiety when I can’t think of any relevant content hahahaha

    • Ako din, I just want to write. Sometimes my posts are “influencer-like” in the sense na may reviews etc but I don’t write it for the views. Gusto ko lang talaga hahaha. But I did add my blog sa Nuffnang ever since my move. I’m just trying to see if I can get money from this. Haha if wala, ede wala. May sweldo pa din ako 😛
