Hooray for today! My blog is five years old. Yey!
Looking back, i usually write about anything under the sun. I mean i didn't care much about who might read whatever i had written or that it will interest them in some way. All i wanted then was to pour my heart out. Until such time i learned about social networking blogs which i joined myself in. I didn't change anything in my way of writing but i did become cautious of posting too much personal rantings (which i guess i didn't succeeded much with that) Anyway, i did make sure of having random posts that might be helpful to some readers out there. Being part of blog groups, and of something around the globe is such a good feeling and earning friends along the years of my blog existence made it all worthwhile.
Like some other few, i also did several blog name changes until the year came (long time ago) when i finally become contented with it. Maria's Wanderland. I even bother my very busy closest someone to pick a blogname for me but ended up giving me too sweet names which i did appreciated but thought that it would be too cheesy for a blog. The funny thing is, i get annoyed then and didn't tell my chosen blogname to that someone but that someone managed to find out what it is in just less 24 hours after i had it changed. How sweet was that? I was really cluelessly amazed. A techy wizard huh?
This blog has been my wanderland for quite some time. It is where i put all those wandering thoughts and not-so-fairytale happenings of my life. I am usually in many things and almost nothing at the same time. Always been searching for anything that never change and always hoping that it would last forever. I guess the wonder part of having a blog is like you have a collection of written memories that you can re-read anytime you feel like it.
My blog extension, which is Emotera's Notebook also on it's 5th year is the other side of me as a drama princess and a poet-in-the-making. Mostly, i write there when i'm falling inlove, falling apart or just caught in between that's why i seldom update it coz sometimes i just don't feel any emotional words to choke out.
So there.. before anything else, i would like to take this opportunity to thank all my blogger friends, followers, commentors and readers out there.
