My 100th Post

Hey Guys!

This is my 100th post and it's pretty exciting. I wasn't even going to make this post special as I have a backlog of posts waiting to be edited and published. One of my lovely blog readers even sent me a DM on twitter that she can tell work's been keeping me busy as blog posts have been few and that's the truth. But, I'll choose quality over quantity any day and like I said I'm learning to prioritise.

So, I wasn't really sure if I could keep this blog up when I started as there were quite a few pitfalls at the beginning.My first blog post was on the 8th of February and my Second one wasn't until the 29th of March as I accidentally stepped on my laptop so the screen had to be repaired. I'm glad I have kept this blog up though, its been an interesting journey of discovery and I've met many wonderful people along the way.
I'm looking forward to more centenaryversaries (just made that up but it makes sense in my mind)
So, I never really explained the reason behind the name of this blog, my blog.
It's my way of documenting my different stages in life so that when I make it in life, when I become a great success, you'll be able to learn from my experiences, take note of the pivotal moments and realise that it wasn't a smooth ride. You'll see how I overcame the challenges and know that Rome wasn't built in a day.
This blog is my story, I'm on a quest, a journey to fulfil my purpose. I'm not sure what exactly it is but I do trust that with time it'll be revealed to me.
Oh yeah, my favourite posts from each month, starting with April as February and March had one post each
