Who remembers my two-month blogiversary post?
Hah. I don’t really remember it either. But I went back and reread it today. Why? Because WAPH is celebrating its one-year blogiversary!
That’s right. I’ve been at it for a full year.
The last year has been one of the craziest years of my life. Thanks to this blog, I was able to land my first freelance writing job. Thanks to that freelance writing job, I was able to quit my dead-end full-time job and run this freelancer game.
I’m making more money, working less, and loving life. Is everything perfect? Am I exactly where I want to be?
Not yet. But the traction I’m getting leads me to believe that I’m well on my way.
I cannot ask for a better way of life and a better group of readers than I have on WAPH. So thanks to everyone who has supported this project. I want to mention some special names who’ve shown me all kinds of love over the last year:
These guys and gals have given me a ton of advice, linked to the blog, and been great friends.
I’d also like to give a shout out to my management team at work. I love you guys.
I feel like I wouldn’t be where I am without the above people in my life. They’ve taken me from a poor manboy hell-bent on making a better life for himself to a less-poor manboy who’s starting to kick some ass and take names.
If you’re one of the 5-6 people who read my very first blog post, you can see how my life is evolving. My goals have changed a bit as I’ve become more immersed in the pf blogging world.
Everyone I’ve come into contact with since I started WAPH is smarter than me, which is great.
I’m on the investment train with no plans on retiring early. I’m trying to create a ton of income streams from various sources and keep that ball rolling for decades.
As far as my personal life goes, I’m still single and loving every second of it. I really don’t have time for romance at this point in my life. I’m almost 35 and I’m making moves. The door of my youth is closing inch by inch.
When I started this blog, Godson #2, aka Baby Shark, wasn’t around yet. He has been the biggest surprise in my life. I was a bit worried at first. I didn’t know if I’d be able to love him as much as I love Godson #1. The first time I met him, all of that worry evaporated.
This is good. Godson #1 is ten years old and doesn’t appreciate being picked up and hugged and loved and doted on like he did when he was a little guy. It’s unfortunate but I knew this day would happen. Baby shark, on the other hand, loves it. Now that he’s starting to walk, he wiggles loose on occasion so he can run around. Watching a ten-month-old waddle around like a drunkard is one of the cutest things I’ve seen in real life.
The future of WAPH
I’m not going anywhere. WAPH continues to be a part of my soul that’s honest and pure. I write from heart and type from the hip.
No matter what happens with my freelancing career, I promise to continue providing as much value as I can with my content. No watering down posts with fluff or affiliate links. I have other sites for that!
In my mind, I’m officially a success, and so is this blog. So to everyone who has contributed to that, thank you. <3
