Milestone :: 3 Months

Dear Lovely People,

Today, mightwar is 3 months old!!

Now some people would consider that I am getting ahead of myself, but this is a milestone I intend to celebrate.
After 549 days of suffering an affliction that mystifies medical professionals, I finally became able to put pen to page about my experience. I put Muffled up on Facebook and Mr. T (my brother from another mother) suggested that I “share” my writing. On 24th October 2012, he sent me the link to WordPress and I entered into a whole new world that I was unaware even existed!

On 10th November 2012, mightwar was launched live across the interweb … and so began my adventures in blogging and all that it entails.

For the first time ever, I presented my words for others to read and comment on – not something I had considered before – and bombarded my friends and family with shameless self promotion like this:

Since then, magic and mayhem has happened and I have learnt so much: about blogs and blogging; about new forms of “sticking and colouring” and about how far I can use my own words to heal myself.

In addition, this has happened:
3-month anniversary blog stats

The numbers in and of themselves don’t really matter – they’re here to add visual rest points from all the text. See, I did learn something from reading all those Support pages. What matters is this:

Despite the bad words screamed at the computer and at the gods of technology, I have enjoyed this experience tremendously. It has been heartening to know that people are taking time out of their day to spend time with my words. That despite my reduced senses I can still commune and that the joy of words allows me to dance in spirit even if I am unable to do so in body.
I intend to fulfil the resolutions that I set for this year – come what may, and look forward to sharing the coming months with you as our paths cross from time to time.

Ever yours in gratitude for your time, your support and the sharing of your words,

Yours sincerely,

ugly shoes SPREAD THE WORD

  1. It sure is a milestone. And you are a fabulous writer and blogger.
    Keep the posts coming. Sometimes we silently skim through the feeds in our e-mail just because of the hectic schedule. And sometimes, we have the time to visit and read the post from start to end.
    And I am glad I came over today.
    I wish you all the best. Happy blogging 🙂

    1. Thank you for the compliments amira. I’m gonna keep on blogging as it’s been so much fun getting to this point. And I know what you mean about skimming the feeds – there’s just much good stuff being written out there, that it’s hard to keep up with it all.

    1. Thank you Raivenne – for your encouragement, your comments and your critiques. They have been very helpful and it has been quite a revelation seeing my work through other people’s eyes.
