Bukville is ONE-year-old, wow! How time flies when you are having fun and pursuing your passion.
It seems like just yesterday when I was struggling to make sense of what blogging is all about? Deciding between WordPress and Blogger, and how to set up a WordPress blog.
How we have come a long way from that, and as befitting on our 1-year anniversary we have moved to a self-hosting domain. I hope it gives us more flexibility with what can be achieved as our plans and vision are enlarged.
How do you like the new look? I haven’t made up my mind yet on the final look and things may soon change around. What is important to me is to make the site user-friendly and accessible to all.
Got any suggestions? Share them with me and I may just consider it. Thanks!
A BIG SHOUT OUT TO MY BLOGGING MENTOR.
Some of you may not know this, when I first started with Bukville. I contacted a lady online that I admired what she was doing. She became my mentor and she gave me valuable advice and guidance.
Her name is Bomi Jolly of Jollynotes.com – Bomi is a true inspiration to me and she is the author of all those wonderful inspirational notes on her site.
She impressed me with how freely and helpful she was to a total stranger. Being a Christian, wife and mother she is using her platform to inspire others and to share the good news of Christ. She is a role model to me and I am a better person for knowing her.
Bomi, I know you don’t need the traffic or attention – thank you very much for always reaching out to me and I know I can always count on your wisdom.
Just as she helped and advised me in my early days of blogging, I have always tried to do the same for new bloggers alike. I have discovered the joy of helping others reach their potential and I truly believe that there are still good people in this world. I have seen the power and blessings of Random Acts of Kindness.
I hope to blog about the importance of having a mentor in a future post. You don’t need to always re-invent the wheel and mentors have the advantage of wisdom and experience on their side.
HOW ARE THINGS WITH ME?
I am doing great, thanks for asking and checking with me. I really appreciate and feel all your love and supports, thanks!
When I started Bukville my youngest was just 11mths old and you can find him sitting on my lap while I type away. That hasn’t changed much, lol. The preparation for Baby No.3 is in full swing and I hope you all bear with me during the transition period.
