Guess what!? It's my Blogiversary! That's right, I've been blogging for three years as of last week :)

This year has been quite eventful blog-wise:

  • I finally bought my own domain - now I'm .com :) OH YEAH! 
  • My reader base expanded according to Google Analytics and that, for me, is awesome!!
  • My blog got a makeover thanks to Noor :) 
  • I finally wrote travel posts which is something I'd love to do more of,
  • My photo skills kind of improved - kind of, even though this post doesn't have one...ooops...
  • I've started writing fiction

Anyway, I was trying to think about what to write for this post and decided to go through my previous Blogiversay posts - the advice in those posts still stand. In fact, I've taken the advice from this post and added to it - experience and all that...

1. Embrace change - Everything changes, people, life, bus routes, everything. Friends move, people get married and some leave your life forever, but that's not the end for you - it's a new chapter and no matter what happens, embrace it and keep going! We can't let these things stop us for long. Of course we have to adjust and that takes time, but don't let it stop you from achieving your goals and dreams. 

2. Learn from criticism - There will always be some one who doesn't like what you do, I can guarantee it. Don't let it get you down. Take note of improvements you can make and seek to imporve yourself. Don't got too bogged down with the criticism, do not let it put you off. Learn from it and keep going. What better way to learn than looking at oneself and making an effort to improve oneself?  

3. Stop comparing yourself to others - You are you, and I am me, why change this? For years I had been comparing myself to others, but I've learnt that you can only work to the best of your ability, look your best and feel your best. We are individuals, a group of collective individuals, and it should be kept that way. We should constantly strive to be better versions of ourselves. You are you and I am me. 

4. Connect with other bloggers - I've discovered that there is a whole world out there, so many great blogs to explore! Join link-ups, share posts and comment on other blogs. Get yourself out there and take a look at what's already out there. There are so many great blog connections, like Twitter chats!

5. Don't give up - Things only become not possible when you stop trying, therefore don't ever, ever, ever, give up. It's the most important piece of advice I have to give, and it's most definaltely universal advice - it can be applied to pretty much everything. :) Still the most important piece of advice I can give you. 

What's your advice and tips? 

Also, on a side note, this will be my last post till next year!! See you on the other siiiiiiide! 

Seasons greetings all and I hope you enjoy your holidays and celebrations :P
