2019 Life Update

It’s been a little over 2 years since I have last written. Unfortunately, time has slipped away from me for various reasons. A lot has happened since 2017. First off, I have been on several trips both internationally and domestically. The first being the Europe trip that I mentioned in one of my previous posts in 2017, but never got the chance to update about it. One of the next posts that I plan on writing will be about the Europe trip for sure.

The domestic trips that I went on last year were to Niagara Falls and to Wildwood beach. I’ve been to Niagara Falls several times since I have family living in that area, but my boyfriend and daughter have never been so I thought it would be nice to take a trip there again for their sake. The beach was also a nice little getaway to enjoy the ocean and the boardwalk. Plus it was nice to have my daughter enjoy the beach, now that she’s old enough to actually enjoy it.

Next important event that happened was that I finally graduated college last fall with a Bachelor’s in German and also a Bachelor’s in Multidisciplinary Studies. It’s been a long couple years in getting my bachelor’s degrees, but it can be done with hard work and determination. Now I am working on my Master’s in Secondary Education. I just finished up with my first semester in my master’s program, so I finally have some time to relax a little until the fall. Now now I finally have some time, I can finally get into the groove again on posting about different languages, cultures, and places around the world. So stay tuned!

Creating & Maintaining a Blog

If you decide that you want to blog, then that’s great! There are many different reasons why people blog. People blog to share their experiences to the world, to inform others about topics they are passionate about, to write their opinions, etc. No matter what the reason why you want to blog, there is a couple of things to keep in mind.

First, you have to consider where to write your blog. There are many different free blogging websites to choose from: WordPress, Weebly, Tumblr, and so on and so forth. Once you have explored the different blogging websites and have chosen a website that works best for you, then you have to create a domain name aka your blog/website name. Make sure when you are creating a blog name that is something unique and easy to remember. After creating your name and password, then it’s time to start customizing your blog’s theme and background. There are many free themes to choose from. Once you finally finish customizing your blog, then it’s finally time to start writing! 

You can write as much as you want or even as little as you want. If you really want to maintain your blog, then try creating a schedule or write as much as you can. Sometimes life does get in the way and you don’t get to blog as much as you would like to. And that’s okay. I’ve been blogging since 2012 and there are some times that I go on a hiatus. I am guilty of forgetting to write, because I’m so busy with schoolwork or doing other things. But I always try and write after I travel or want to talk about something I care about like culture, language, photography, etc. Your blog will always be there whenever you decide you feel like writing.

So if you want to blog then blog, add pictures, and most importantly, have fun!
