2017 Rewind: a look back

I was supposed to begin this rewind thing last week, but it just didn’t work out. 

Looking back at last year January-March, I realized that I still had no real direction of where I was taking this blog. I had long ago strayed from the original intentions and although I was posting daily (or almost), my focus was mostly on the 365 Days of Writing challenge (some of those prompts were ridiculously repetitive!). I was also contemplating on doing book reviews around that time, something I started doing in March 2017 beginning with the Holy Bible.

La Petit Muse is pretty random and I’ve had many ideas over the past few months, but I want the main focus to be on God and that’s why I like starting the morning with a scripture before I post anything else. I am excited to start Bible Studies and I have a few new series line up for 2018, so we’ll see how that goes.

I enjoyed watching La Petit Muse bloom last year given that I had no clear direction of where I was going. Also, thank you to all of my readers (I don’t like saying followers) and visitors. You guys are amazing! ❤

I look forward to rewinding back to some of my favorite posts soon. 🙂

La Petit Muse: a look back at 2017

I trust that you’re having a fantastic Sunday morning thus far! And if you’re not, there’s always coffee to cheer you up. 🙂

I meant to look back at 2017 last week blogging wise, but I just didn’t get around to doing it. 2017 was a blast for me. It was not my best year yet, for I believe that I’ve just started it and it’s going to be epic, but it was an awesome one! I met and made many friends here, picked up a new language (we’ll go into details at some point), grew closer to Christ, read many books, celebrated a few milestones and started posting on Wattpad among other achievements. Some were small, some were big, some were in between, some didn’t happen at all, but I am thankful for every achievement. 

2017 ended on a fairly positive note for me and I am utmost grateful to God for allowing me to experience both highs and lows. Through everything, I feel as if I have somewhat grown and it feels great!

So, beginning this week (and probably for the rest of janvier), I’ll be looking back at my favorite blog posts from last year and sharing them. I have no idea if I’ll do it month by month, by categories, or just randomly, but it’s going to be fun, so join me for a year in review? Hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday. I’m just going to lay low and relax today.

Reading some blogs and leaving some likes

Good morning, everyone! Well, it was morning when I started composing this, but looking at the time on the PC, I see that we’re easing into the afternoon. We just have like four more minutes and bam! Afternoon.

Anyways, I just wanted to leave this here: I am a little slow in replying to comments, following, and reading blogs because I’ve been trying to complete the challenge that I’ve set for myself for this year’s NaNo: 50,000 words by November 28th. Well, it is the 28th and I don’t have 50,000 words as yet, for I’ve taken a small writing break over the weekend to focus on other things. I might have to wait until the 29th to pass 50,000. 😛

I have 11,000 words more to reach my goal, but I’ll see how that goes. I think I have two posts scheduled for this evening, but I am not sure. Anyway, I hope you’re having a wonderful Tuesday! I hope to get back into the swing of blogging things around here soon, but in the meantime, I am reading some blogs and leaving some likes.

Finally settled on a blog header…

As I’ve mentioned in a past few posts, I’ve been trying to come up with a header for the blog. I am a jumbled mess when it comes to color schemes (I can’t seem to choose theme colors for they’re all so pretty), but I wanted to work with pink, gold/yellow, and flowers. I ended up with this…

Haha! I think I am color blind most of the time (I kind of like faded pink). It is my current header (if you’ll go to the home page) and I am looking at it and having second thoughts concerning the font and colors. I value your opinion, so let me know what you think in the comments below.

August 25th: Secret of success

 :

What would it take for you to consider yourself a “successful blogger”? Is that something you strive for?

Honestly, I am tired of answering almost the same identical blogging questions.

Anyways, I consider myself a successful blogger in terms of uploading content on a daily basis. I love blogging. I don’t see the need to compete with other bloggers for most likes, comments or followers as I am thankful for the readers who stop by. ❤

Blogger’s problem 101: like for the sake of liking

#MusingMonday

Are you one of those bloggers who like for the sake of liking without actually reading the post because you know if you like the post it’s going to be bait for the blogger to visit your blog and ACTUALLY read your post?

If you’re one of those, then it’s unfair for the blogger who actually read your posts and leave comments while you just visit their blog and press the like button without reading. There are no rules stating that you have to actually like someone’s post. None whatsoever! So if you don’t like reading other bloggers’ posts, don’t visit their blogs, don’t press like for the sake of liking and don’t follow their blog. Stop giving them false hopes that you’re actually reading their blog when in fact you’re not.
