    Out of curiosity, I looked back at my archive to see where I was. I’d just started anew on my blog, and at the time I was in a very dark place. I used to blog with aplomb whilst I tried to figure out what was happening with/to me offline.

    I think that what makes 6birds valuable is that it’s the domain I plan to have for all my blogging days, even though sometimes for long periods of time I find myself hating the domain. It’s a “forever domain”; I’ll have it as long as I can because it’s my baby, and I want people I connected with a year ago who I’ve lost connection with to be able to easily find me. I think it’s also valuable because I make sure to try to connect with everyone who comments it. My readers don’t always comment, but I suppose that’s what makes it even more enticing.

    My facts: I’m a blogger who influences many people’s lives by sharing my story. I’m honest, and I share a side of life different from others. It’s really comforting when I discover someone else stumbled across my blog and that we share similar backgrounds.

      Liz, I really admire your blog and what you do! I think there’s a huge amount of potential for your perspective and life experience to become hugely important and empowering to others. Keep it up, because I’d LOVE to see where it goes!

    Hi Janae,

    Thank you for this inspiring post and all the time and effort you put in the BBN. To me the BBN feels like a place where I can hang up my newbie coat, sit down with my huge cup of coffee and discover the world of blogging wonders.

    Your questions work inspirational too. They allow me to take a step back and think about my blog and my goals with blogging. It is my wish that with my blog I can inspire others to find the joys in their life, interesting places in The Netherlands, Music, anywhere in life really. I also have to confess and be honest that I blog for myself as well. It gives me energy, sparks my creativity and allows me to improve my English & writing skills.

    I only just started blogging since September 21st this year. I passed the 21 days ‘test’. My wishes for next year are: 1. Pass the 200 posts ‘test’. 2. Create a final blog design myself which complements my blog. 3. Be an active, honest fun and inspiring Blog community member. 4. Have at least one follower I inspired to find their joy in life. 5. Knowing I stayed true to myself.

    Thanks again and keep on the good work!

      Also, I like your blog. I hope you can accomplish those goals you’ve made for yourself! I have no doubt that you can do it if you stay true to yourself and always blog for the love of it. Your stories and your pursuit of happiness have the potential to take you really far!
