My First Blogiversary



Dear Readers,

      One year ago today, with a mere click of my mouse, my first blog post on Peridot Cove was published. After scrapping my first impersonal blog, I had explored the world of YouTube videos and turned back to my first love of blogging. I definitely feel the most difficult part of this journey was picking the perfect name seeing as so many are already taken! From there, my blog just flowed. At the time I hadn't imagined how many wonderful people I'd meet along the way and how uplifting their words would be. I already had the everlasting support from my friends and family, but I'd discover an entirely new community the second I created this blog.

     It's still so hard to believe that today marks a year since I first shared my writing with the world. On my first blogiversary, I'm beyond happy to be where I am and I truly cherish all the friendships I have made. I can already feel that Peridot Cove will only grow from here, and I have so many ideas for this summer and for the future. It's why I feel my break was so refreshing - It helped me to see why I love blogging since I missed it so much! It may sound cliche, but it's true that I wouldn't be where I am without each and every one of you.

     I hope all of you know just how much I treasure your motivation and inspiration. Your encouraging comments bring smiles to my face everyday, and I always visit your blogs, too! I've truly reached a milestone on this day. Blogging should never be about the amount of followers or page views you have, and I wholeheartedly understand that concept now. Blogging is about self-expression and experiences- All the little joys that make life whole.

     If you have ever considered creating a blog, or if you simply have a knack for words, I strongly encourage you to begin the journey. No matter what happens, or where your blog takes you, I'll always be here, cheering you on. Once more, thank you so much for being so wonderfully sweet over this past year, and know that I can't wait to continue blogging with all of you! Make sure to visit my archive and look back on my very first post, a piece of poetry titled "Sir Sun".

     Best wishes, and I hope you have the best summer yet!

                                                                       Lots of love,
                                                                                             Sanjana
