It was 8 years ago today that I published my first blog post, not having any idea what I was doing here, nor what I was going to do with it. So, that hasn’t changed then! 🙂 But I can say without any doubt that my life has been changed by everyone I’ve met via this blog. You’ve become friends – many of whom I’ve met in person! – and some of you have also become my family, standing by me when I was sick and supporting me through that very hard time. And of course we’ve also shared some very good times.
Having this blog also led to me starting other blogs like this one and getting involved in other social media platforms when they came along, especially Twitter, which in turn led to meeting even more people and eventually starting a new life for myself as the Tapas Queen of Sevilla.
It was during my illness that I started doing the “blog post a day” thing, mostly because it gave me a focus, something to achieve each day, even if all I did was put up some photos or a video. And that’s when casa az turned into a “daily scrapbook” which I’ve kept going ever since, even if sometimes I have to play catch up. In part I keep posting stuff in this scrapbook for myself, so I can look back and see what a particular week or month was like. But honestly, if I did ever let it go for a few days or a week, I’d somehow feel like my next post would have to be something IMPORTANT. Too much pressure. I’m okay doing that with my other blogs – yes, I am a blogaholic – because they are actually about something (Sevilla events, recipes, photos, tapas guide, Spain, travel) so I just post stuff as it happens. But this personal blog is just about me and my day-to-day life. Hence the name.
So thanks to all of you for sticking it out here in the hope that I may post something interesting some day! 😉 You are always welcome in my home – mi casa es tu casa!
