Overdue Appreciation

Even though I don’t say this often enough, I appreciate each and every one of you. You being my followers, readers, and friends.

I may not respond to all your comments right away.

I may not like all your blog posts the day you publish them.

I may not be the “perfect” blogger buddy, pal or whatever you want to call me.

That said I am deeply grateful for all of you who put up with me. I am so lucky for this wonderful blogging experience and I’m even luckier to share it with all of you.

Thank you WordPress community for making my blog what it is today. I cannot even begin to name (much less thank) everyone who has made this journey such a pleasurable one.

The End Of This Blog?

Fellow bloggers,

I was thinking about this blog. More specifically, I was thinking about ending this blog. I’m ready to give up on blogging. I’m ready to quit writing. Now’s the time to part from both. Besides, my life is hugely occupied by this blog. If I closed my WordPress account, I would have more time to do other things. After all, I am a student. Everyone says being a student is my first priority. Everything else is secondary. Without blogging in the way, I can focus more on my grades. I can concentrate on my future. Oh, who am I fooling? There is no way I could stop writing or quit blogging. I love this blog like it’s my baby. Happy April Fool’s Day! I hope I didn’t manage to fool you. I know I didn’t fool myself. Especially since giving up and quitting is so unlike me. Anyhow, I’m not trying to be a cruel person by taking advantage of April Fool’s Day. Because…it isn’t just April Fool’s Day! Yep, April 1st, 2013 was the day I created this blog. Although my first post was published on April 2nd, 2013, I still feel like I should celebrate today. It is, in a way, my one year blogging anniversary. So I plan to do something special.

I know I don’t say this enough but hear me out. I think you know I don’t take any of this for granted. Especially since I couldn’t have ran a blog all by myself. Thanks to every single one of you for making my blogging journey so incredibly amazing/enjoyable/every wonderful adjective known to mankind. I appreciate all your support and I am truly grateful for everything.

Lots of love,

Herminia (who shall really be referred to as aspiringwriter22)

A Long Overdue Thank You

Albeit today is somewhat of a special and busy day for me, I won’t neglect my fellow readers.

A special thanks to everyone who has stopped by, read what I had to say, liked my posts, followed my blog, you get the point. Thank you to all my followers and friends for making this blogging endeavor such an enjoyable one. The WordPress community is truly one of a kind and the best.

I will strive to continue this blog and I invite you to join me along the ride. Unless of course you already are on this bumpy ride. In that case, hold on tight.

Cheers to the great memories so far, the hearty laughs and unforgettable cries, and whatever else is in store for us down the road.

Struggle but don’t give up. Cry but don’t break down. Work hard and good luck!

Love you all,


Apologies for the short, terse post.
