‘Twas a great 3-year run in the area of blogging. Kudos to all your write ups and thank you for taking time reading mine.
The statement above has been lingering in my thoughts weeks ago. I told a very close friend that I don’t want to blog anymore and start doing something else. He said to take some rest first because it seems I’m just tired with lots of things.
I enjoy writing. I enjoy sharing my ideas and anything that’s happening with me, which I guess gives inspiration to other people. I admit I had thoughts on whether this blog site serves its purpose or not. Some individuals actually say that I’m using this as a channel to ruin them or put shame on them. Sinisiraan ko daw sila. Though I keep on asking what’s the title or at least send me a screencap that supports their claim and they could not provide a thing, I admit, it affects me. If making me feel bad is their grandest plan, I admit, they’ve succeeded.
Most of my entries are focusing on empowering ones self, personal leadership, realizations and life lessons. I am not sure how many of my followers here really read my writings. I’m not sure if the likes I get in sharing the links in SNS really corresponds to the number of reads the blog gets.
I’m not even confident with this craft. I’m not good in English, neither in expressing myself well articulately using my native language.
Yup, for a time, I wanted to withdraw from people again. Whether be it from social media or in this blogosphere, I searched for silence.
Truth is, I write blogs as a way of reminding myself or prepare myself from the upcoming difficulties or situations. If it inspires people, I do not know. But I get inspired with it, really.
When I was in the verge of putting this site down, a friend randomly expressed her willingness to finance me so I could get my own domain name. When I was in the middle of composing my ending words in mind, two officemates randomly asked for the link for they wanted to subscribe and be informed whenever there is a latest publish. I was told that someone was lonely and reminded to be grateful after reading my post three weeks ago. I got a notification that stats are spiking and traffic was booming.
I don’t know how to say this or how this very entry I am writing today leads to something. I don’t understand. It seems like a confession of a blogger or whatnot. One thing is for sure, I will continue to write. Maybe I will take some hiatus as suggested to me but I will definitely never stop writing.
I will continue to write even if only one reader is left, even if that one reader means myself. Because if the main purpose of this blog is to inspire people, I will continue to write even if it inspires only one – even if it means only me.
Yes, this will be my last blog post, maybe this month. Or maybe this week.

P.S. Will continue to publish #RHEAlizations on my FB page as scheduled for the whole month of October. 🙂
