That’s right – 300 hundred posts later, here I am.
I recall it was yesterday that I reached my 100 post and how excited I was to reach such a blog “milestone.” Now, almost to two years for my blog, the question is: what is next for buttonsandchary.com?
Although I originally created this website as a creative platform for me to express myself into words, refining my writing skills and sharing my stories about any average twenty-somethings young woman, I want to make it more. I want for my blog and myself to continue growing in creative ways. Whether it is mixing up my content, or possibly having other writers publish their favorite pieces, here. Who knows?!
Why I chose to publicly display myself was more of an unintentional mishap, but somehow intentional thing. I know, that doesn’t make sense. But I felt alone in my post-grad motions and feeling lost. I turned to writing because it gave me solace. Once I went public and shared my stories on my social networks, it got attention, and somehow connected with people all over. Then, I find myself not alone! You and I are going through the same thing, not exactly maybe, but similar motions and the only difference is, I am verbalizing it. The power of words bringing us together. I know that sounds kind of cheesy.
Personally, I also find it super exciting to see the growth in my writing and in myself. Although I hate saying this is my digital diary, but it kind of is. My blog has highlighted so many great successes and failures in my life. Hell, if I wanted, I could probably create a short novel out of it.
Anyway, I just want to whole heartedly thank those who have always stuck by my side. From being this confused recent graduate to this confused wanna-be adult – I kid – I am an adult. But on a serious note, thank you all for being my cheerleaders and chiming here for a quick read, or two. It truly means a lot that I have such a great and supportive audience.
Trust me, your feedback pleases me. I am forever grateful for my readers (:
While I do not know where my blog my may take me in the next 300 posts or the years to come – I thought it may be appropriate to share one of my favorite songs that always hit home. Surprisingly by Yeezy, who I am not such a great fan of, but this one always, I mean always, give me the chills and makes me feel some typa way:
Seems like street lights glowing
Happen to be just like moments passing
In front of me
So I hopped in the cab and
I paid my fare
See I know my destination, but I’m just not there
Street Lights by Kanye West, 808’s & Heartbreaks
Oh, and the lyrics are a great reflection about our lives, our unknown path. I bid you good day. Again, thank you all for your ongoing support and taking the time to read my mad thoughts (:
PS: Happy Cambodian New Years to all my Cambodian family & friends!!! I went to a temple in Brooklyn – details will follow (:
