First Anniversary!!! Whoa!

So exciting! ❀

I can’t believe that it has been a year since I have opened my first “New Post” page and written an intro into something I knew then it would last. I had that feeling of “everything is ready”. πŸ™‚

My mother called me Ivančica (Daisy) when I was a kid πŸ™‚ It is strange that there is no translation for “Tratinčica” (my sister nickname), those are the same flower except daisy is bigger and has bigger flowers – like i was the older sister.

In past I had two blogs, but both were for the sole purpose of passing my exams on college and I have never thought of having a blog, let alone writing on English!

It just clicked together, I just knew I wanted to share and make, and just “go with the flow”… But something happened when I started blogging.

I discovered my love for photography. I saw how much of a truly creative person I am… You think I would know, but I didn’t! I guess putting it black on white made it easier for me to realize it.

I discovered that I like experimenting with food! (Something everyone was surprised/ shocked about. πŸ˜€ ) I pull together courage and showed a little poet that I know is in me. But, I didn’t expect this…this community, this connections I made… Connections that really filled me up with happiness, that were very important to me a couple of times… I am so glad I chose WordPress and not local blogging site, because I was am able to spread my wings across the whole world… There is a sense of sweet freedom in that thought. πŸ™‚ I also become aware of “agenda” and “numbers” and “followers”, “views”. I still claim that I don’t care about boosting my numbers, but of course that I care about being read, about you who comment and make my day, about my little baby blog being viewed a lot…

Thank you! For being here, reading, commenting, sharing, inspiring me and letting me inspire you… Giving me awards what made me very proud. πŸ™‚ I got a lot of more stuff in store for this part of my life I can’t imagine my life without now. Weird, right?

I didn’t know where this journey of mine is going to take me, but ironically, by sharing and opening up to the world I got to know myself better…

Also, if you would like to browse through my post history, except for the Random Post Bob you have a Calendar in the sidebar with all my posts marked, you can get lost if you want or maybe check out what did I write before you followed me. πŸ™‚

  1. Congratulations on your one year anniversary!

  2. Congrats Ivy (that’s your real name, I assume!) on your blog anniversary. What an achievement. You write so well in English, and looking at these very clear and craetive photos, I think you are very good in photography πŸ™‚ I love it when you say blogging allows you to fly all over the world. I am so glad to have stumbled upon your blog and followed, I always enjoy all the random stories you tell about life and all the random things πŸ˜€ Can’t wait to see what else you will share here on WordPress!

    • Thank you so much Mabel πŸ˜€ My real name is Iva, but most people don’t pronounce it correct so I go by my nickname Ivy here πŸ™‚ I wrote about that…somewhere haha…
      I am so pleased that you enjoy in my writing and you should know that that makes me really happy πŸ˜€
      On the other hand I do feel guilty for not having time to read all the blogs I care for and follow, yours included… I usually catch up, but it’s not enough. If you have wrote something you think I would find interesting, don’t hesitate to point it out to me… πŸ™‚ I will catch up on your blog as soon as I can, pinky promise πŸ™‚

      • Thanks, Iva. I will call you that from now on πŸ˜€ I love how you write about positive things and that’s why I always come back. It’s definitely hard to check out other blogs – I struggle with this too and understand what you mean πŸ™‚ I think no matter when you drop by my blog, you will find something interesting to read. No pressure πŸ˜€

      • Thanks, I’m so used to Ivy here that it is cool to see my name πŸ™‚
        I’m very glad to hear that (ok, to read that πŸ˜€ ), I’ve learned it the hard way that it is necessary and it actually surprised me how much of that attitude got on blog I opened for sharing my crafts and photography and random stuff. πŸ™‚
        And about other blogs, I know! I will get there, no worries… But we really have to make time… I want to actively follow many people but that sometimes is just impossible…

  3. Happy Anniversary! Woohoo!

  6. omg!! Happy blogversary!!

  7. Very nice how you explain your journey of meeting people and being part of a community. I enjoy reading your ideas and looking at the pictures.

    • It is true and I struggle to bring my exact thoughts from Croatian to English, it is different when I have to talk about something and when I want to talk from within… πŸ™‚ Different expressions come to mind which don’t mean anything in English, so I need to adapt.
      Thank you, I enjoy that you like to read my blog and like my photos very much, thank you ❀ πŸ™‚

  8. Congrats on your anniversary and thanks so much for this post — I feel very same about blogging, including the newly found creativity and the great support of WordPress community. Wishing you many happy blogaversaires to come!
