A New Year is like a new baby, many changes will be necessary, some rewarding, exciting and some will be interrupting and challenging.
All new beginnings comes with challenges yet exciting.
Just as it’s another glorious year, God has seasons for each of us to have new beginnings during our lives. We need all new beginnings for change, to rethink, re-strategise, build, learn and grow.
The scripture also says much about new beginnings, and seasons.
Genesis 8:22(NIV): ”As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.”
-After the flood, God set a rainbow in the sky to show that He’d given a new beginning.
– The establishment of Passover was a new beginning.
It’s not late to start that list you’ve written. You can achieve everything on that 2019 list. You just have to keep that fire and energy you had on the first day of the year.
“There comes a day when you realize turning the page is the best feeling in the world, because you realize there’s so much more to the book than the page you were stuck on.” — Zayn Malik
Keep pushing to achieve everything on your do-list this year and Make history.
Happy New Year and have a wonderful February everyone.
I began this blog four years ago, on the 24th of December 2014
Can you believe it?
More accurately, I knew I wanted to be a successful blogger and maybe someday make a living from it. Honestly what pushed me into blogging was because I love to write. Four years ago, I’d write a poem or a short story or an article and send it to friends to read and most of them would be like “wow! Presh, I think you should own a blog”.
Well, At first I wasn’t sure about owning a blog, I was just used to the idea of writing for people on their pages but well, along the line I realised it’s actually better to own a blog and publish my articles.
As a young blogger in 2014, I really didn’t have much idea about blogging but having a large, engaged and loyal group of followers – that was my dream. And you know what? I’m getting there! Though I’ve been a little bit off and on here because of busy schedules but what matters is I keep going!
Today I wanted to share some of the things I’ve learned from blogging this far.
1)Everyone’s got their own magic
You’ve got your own magic! Don’t compare and don’t copy. Just do you! just write it, do what you’re good at and aim for the top.
It’s so easy to get stucked into the competition surrounding blogging. Just be yourself
2) Be consistent
It can be really hard to maintain things sometimes but you’ve got to keep blogging and keep writing. It doesn’t matter how you do it, just create that time and do it. And never forget that people are watching. You’ve got your loyalty followers and readers. You can’t disappoint them.
3) Be Creative
Make your blog a place that shares useful information, meaningful content and unique posts. Don’t just do what everyone is doing. Do something outstanding. Besides, you also need to make it prestigious enough for others to want to contribute to it.
Over to you
These are some of the things I’ve learned over the years. What are your blogging lessons or secrets? Share in the comment section.?
There was this competition I signed in for ( Bowen got talent). Alright! I got the form and I actually signed in as a writer.There were different categories though.
It was my time to get on stage,and then I became nervous,so I prayed,I asked God to help me come out bold. It was a large hall and obviously I got everyone’s attention and so I heard the voice; IT’S TIME!
I held the microphone close to my mouth and then I read out my poem,and I made sure there was a good connection between the judges and I (eye contact).
It was a though competition,but I made it through to the second round. I’m happy! Thank God.
See, I want you to know that you’ve got what it takes to write through. You’ve got the talent,don’t let anyone discourage you. Show the people out there what you’re made of and be confident,be self assured and always have a positive mindset.It’s in you. Go out there and shine. Write your way through!
