As I was scrolling through TimeHop (probably the coolest social media “time travel” app ever), this lovely little diddy popped up:
It was three years ago today that I started chasitycooper.com. Back then, my sole purpose for the blog was to share my experiences living in Washington, DC as a recent college grad. Additionally, I shared my thoughts on happenings in the world of public relations and marketing, and spotlighted one or two of my peers. There was really no strategy behind it — I simply wrote whatever was on my heart.
Fast forward three years later, I’m so completely overjoyed and humbled to how much this brainchild of mine has grown. I’m a firm believer in putting forth 110% into something that you love doing. Granted, it’s not always easy being disciplined about writing 3-4 times a week, but the late nights and early mornings of brainstorming and editing drafts have totally been worth it. Blogging has been quite the teacher over the years, and to this day I’m still learning how to navigate my way around the blogosphere. Whenever you start something new, it’s always scary — but like Joyce Meyer says, “feel the fear and do it anyway!” This blog has truly been a labor of love, creativity and passion and after three years, I still remain excited to log-in to WordPress and type my life away. 😉
I want to take this time to thank each of you that take time to read my posts. I remain eternally grateful for your support and encouragement, and look forward to how much this outlet will continue to evolve. It’s not only gratifying to receive positive feedback on my content, but it’s humbling to know that people can relate to what you’re going through. I’d also like to thank those that have contributed their words of wisdom and expertise to the blog as well. I’m thankful to know such talented writers who know how to use their voices in an influential and relatable way. I like to think that I don’t write for myself — but really to voice the triumphs and struggles of the millennial generation. We’re just a powerful entity, and regardless of what the media has to say, our voice will continue to ring loud and make an impact on our society.
So here’s to three incredible years of blogging, and to many more to come!
