Now that 2017 has come to an end and it’s 2018 already, I’m sharing my blog’s statistics and performance update with you. Before I started this blog, I did not take blogging seriously. I first started blogging around five or six years ago when I had my own poetry blog hosted on Google’s Blogger platform. At that time, I didn’t realize the potential benefits of blogging but now I have realized how much of an impact it can have on your personal life. Blogging has seriously made my life better and I have come across a whole lot of people through blogging. Thank you every one for motivating and guiding me throughout this journey.
