Looking Back at Journey of Life...


Time flies when you have fun and indeed, a year has gone by since I started blogging. From timidly stepping my feet into the blogging world to where I am here today surrounding by my friends, blogging friends and readers from all of the world.
A year ago, I wrote this very post and here I am looking back and sharing it you all over again ...

Journey of Life
Our lives are like long journeys that we don't even know when they will end. Sometimes, we don't know where they began until we've realized that we are part of the journeys. Do you think they were prearranged?

Just the thought of it, sometimes makes me chill. You meet a certain person in your life and somehow, someway, that person makes ...http://journeyofmylifendestiny.blogspot.com/2011/10/journey-of-my-life.html

And that is how it all started, how writing has brought me to where I am today among all of you, writers and readers.  How writing has filled the blank that my girls left behind --for being independent. How writing has brought me to realize that I love reading non fiction --yeah, I am weird.

I remember how excited I was when I received my first *ever* comment and encouragement from my brother-in-law, David from Random Walk. He is always there to read my blogs and comments on the topics that he found interesting. His comment are always very inspiring and refreshing. To that I am very thankful.

Then I received the first comment from Lucy from The Trans-Gentle Wife on my post, Slightly Imperfect.. She has experienced a tremendous change in her life. After reading her blog, I felt my heart was sadden but then I was anxious for nothing. She is such a strong lady and she kept on moving forward with her brave steps and she seems to be doing all right.

All of the sudden, I have discovered BlogHer and was madly *in-love* and couldn't keep eyes and hands off from my computer. I have met many fun and loving bloggers there which I still keeping in touch.And I couldn't explain my feeling when one of my blogs was featured there --My Unusual Date

Just as the party at Blogher was almost quieted down, I found Jenn from Wine-n-Chat and that was the best thing that ever happened in this blogging world. Through her, I have found many more friends in this virtual world. Jenn is the BlogFest originator and creator of The Writers' Post  She is definitely a treasure!

Then I met Sandra Tyler from A Writer Weaves a Tale. She is an incredible woman who has such a warm heart and very positive attitude and she encouraged me to write non-fiction stories. I didn't know that I could connect with my daughter all over again thru this virtual world. We wrote our first fiction together --I Believe if We Meet Once We Are Fated to Meet Again.

Thru this blogging word, I have discovered something unimaginable, something that is unbelievable --that friendship in this virtual world is at all possible. For that, let's toast for our great time and many more happy years to come.

Until next stop,
Journey of Life

  3. Angela, you posts brings back such warm memories for me, too. Like when I first found BlogHer and I, too, fell in-love with blogging. And by the way, you are not weird just becasue you "like" non-fiction. Though I prefer fiction, a good book to take me away, I also like to be brought back to earth, reading non-fiction.

    Big virtual hugs, Amiga!
