Archive for December 13th, 2011


Last January, I made myself commit to the ambitious pursuit  of posting daily when WordPress challenged its bloggers to post blogs on a daily or a weekly basis.  And I thought, why not although I was not so sure if I’ll be able to come up with a daily blog post. Like all challenges in life, nothing would come out of it if you won’t spend time and  if you are not focused on doing it.  And it was a challenge, right?

There are  times when you could not come up with any blog worthy of being published, at other times though, you are inspired enough to publish at least two posts. When I started with Post a Day Challenge 2011, I only had more than 20,000 page views after more than one year and seven months of blogging. My intention was just to share my journey as a cancer patient/survivor. I told myself that I would be happy if I could encourage and touch one person who was traveling the same journey as I did. I was pleasantly surprised when I received lots of comments and inquiries on how I went about my surgery, chemotherapy and how I coped with the daily pressures of having the most dreaded disease in the planet.  After more than eleven months, my stats did a crazy dance by registering almost 69,000 hits as of this writing. I  can’t believe it, Post a  Day Challenge 2011  helped definitely.  And writing has become a daily habit instead of a challenge to overcome.  The first two months were of course a little difficult but when you come up with a blog every night or at the break of dawn (these are the times that I feel inspired to blog), it becomes easy as one, two, three.

For one thing, my reflections here helped me with administering a Catholic site at our Facebook page.  And it’s not only about meeting the challenge per se, but it is also about the joys of sharing and writing.  It’s about getting in touch with your inner self and reaching your dreams. This is my 744th post,  with 68,915 views all-time.
