Be my Bloglantine

 Happy Bloglantine everyone! Me & Noor are celebrating Bloglantine on 15 February!
Bloglantine Day

I celebrated my Blogoversary a while ago.When I cut a cupcake and tried to share it with everyone around me, my uncle asked me what's up. I told him it's my blog's anniversary. He asked me if I'm joking. But then I told him my story, my blog-life-story. As it's Bloglantine, I'll be sharing my love for my blog.

I started a blog. I started writing. I started doing something fun on web. It all was fun. Just "fun", until it got serious. Serious doesn't mean something else except of that I started getting into it deeply. I started to give hours to my blog. Designing and writing better. Once I spent 11 hours on my blog, then I knew what does blogging and my blog matters to me. Because I skipped my classes, stayed home and did what my blog wanted me to do. All of the words, pictures and everything on my blog is written/designed with love & attention. I gave it everything. Because it's not just a blog, it's something else for me. 

I do Blog Twitter chats. Most of them aren't of my own time zone. Some of them even make me to stay until 1 am or 3 am to tweet-taat with my bloggy gals. Sometimes peeps ask if I ever sleep (Loud laugh) Yes I do but I make sure to check my emails and tweets before I go to pee in morning or brush my teeth before going bed. Or catch me tweeting/commenting on my fav-o blogs/tweeting again inside my comforter before I fall asleep. 

Our love grew more when my blog started to give me its love back. First thing, it gave me friends. Those friend who're just like me. Totally strangers but know my daily life problems, big shit issues, I told them how much I suck at this & that matters. We've never met but we found a relationship. Heemz & I, we're bloggy cousins because I call her mum Aunt. Then comes food obsession that I share with the ladies I found through blogging. Brittany, Heemz & Rubi are my pizza party ladies. We aren't just obsessed, we're MORE THAN obsessed with those cheesy slices. There's Natalie, who's my penpal, my bloggy triplet and a sweet friend. And I got a big Canadian sis who gives BEST advices, Haley it's you! Once I was near failing my Maths exam's Trigonometry section, Vanee showed her Maths skills and saved the day!

Second thing, I've never imagined myself getting paid sometimes for doing what I really love. This means moolah and freebies. I get money from blog and I spend it doing sponsorship on other blogs. Keeping the love coming and going. And when I get an email from a company to help them doing their promotion/review, I do a happy happy dance! Who doesn't love mail?

Plus, I'm famous for shameless promotions of my blog. I can bear peeps side eyes. But hey! It's about my blog, never give a damn to those side eyes.I'm overly attached (Or obsessed if this word works here) with this online bloggy sparkly space. I don't find it bad. If I love something, I'm going to express it. So if you're madly in love with your blog, don't stop doing this. Having a blog was the best decision of my life, I mean it! My family + IRL friends read this blog. I love how they appreciate it. Thanks guys! Thanks for being a reader, for everything! I'm being emotional today as 14 February sucks but 15 February doesn't suck because it's Bloglantine. I'll try my best to celebrate this every year for my blog.

  15. Hi Areeba, I have not been blogging for a while, but plan to start up again. I have just been so busy with my family, I spend a lot of my time with my Dad since my Mom passed away, it's just been a year. Dad does as good as he can, he is 88 yrs old. I see him every day M-F. I hope to put a story on here about him from last October, it's amazing!
    Take care...I love this story about Bloglantine! So cute. I hope you had a nice Valentine's Day.
    Your friend, Dawn

  16. I'm actually amazed how you do it all. You write a great amount of posts and they're all perfect. Great job. Keep it up hun!

  17. Blogging is something that I never imagined I'd still be doing now!!! I started it a little over a year ago and I could not imagine why anyone would want to read of follow. It's been such a great journey and it's something that I am quite happy to spend time on. I usually would waste my time playing games or watching TV but I feel like I am putting effort into something!

  20. It's great to be proud of your blog (no matter how small it is- mine, not yours!) And I love all your blog hops :)

  21. I love this post, I can see that your blog means a lot to you. Sometimes I funny to think about the amount of time you can dedicate to such a small space.
