I can not believe it has been a month since I started this blog and published my first article!
What I find even less believable is that hundreds of people have visited this blog and read my articles….
I never mentioned this before but I used to be a pretty popular fan fiction writer back in the day which considering English is not my first language is quite an accomplishment. I received thousands of comments on my stories which were read by hundreds if not thousands of people and I had quite a lot of subscribers too.
It always amazed me that people were actually interested in what I had to say. I never wrote fan fiction to be popular but because the shows I was writing about were not giving what I wanted so I started to write as a way of creating my own alternate universe if you will.
I have not published anything in years but I am grateful for this experience, without it I do not think I would have started this blog for two reasons.
1.I am not that confident that my English is good enough to be published for hundreds of people to read.
2.I never thought I was creative or original enough to get people’s attention.
Thankfully, fanfiction proved me wrong many times over.
Also a few years back I started a youtube channel where I would post fanvideos I have made about Criminal Minds which at the time was my favorite show. Once again, my endeavor was met with success and I now have had over a million views and hundreds of subscribers.
I must say I am quite proud of the work I have done with my videos. I spent hours editing parts of the show, putting them together to tell a story and adding a song that would match the theme of the video perfectly.
To this day I still get thousands of views every month (11 500 over the past 28 days) even though I have not published videos in years(aside for that one supergirl videos a few months back).
I do not know if this blog will be as successful as my previous projects but I know that I am more prepared than I was back then and have a better understanding how things work.
