Carol’s Adventures in Blogging


I’m sorry if this is getting boring (me bragging all the time about my – small but steady – achievements), but you are the reason of all these achievements, so I feel I have to share my happiness with you.

You know, being a translator has always been a dream. A dream come true with a lot of hard work, dedication, commitment, sleepless nights, endless mugs of white coffee, working weekends and holidays, and much more. It was not easy, but that’s what makes it even more special.

And after this dream came true, I kept (and still do) learning a lot from my colleagues. I fell in love with branding, social media and networking. I just love managing all my social networks, reading and sharing interesting stuff, engaging and interacting with other translatos and readers. However, it wasn’t until mid 2013 that I finally decided (and got the courage) to have a blog. I was afraid I wouldn’t know what to write, I would sound like a fool, my blog would be just another blog out there, etc. Even after I started it, I wasn’t feeling confident. I would only write when I felt like doing so, i.e. once in a long while. So, in the beginning of the year, I decided to have an editorial calendar and to invite people to write weekly posts. That way, I’d force myself to write and I’d have constant posts. The results I’m having are just amazing! It all started with the very first guest post and it just keeps getting better and, consequently, more exciting!

Today, so far, I’ve reached the most visitors of all times: 200! I know some of you may think it’s not such a big deal, but for me it’s a HUGE deal! Besides, people are commenting a lot on my posts, which is absolutely fantastic! You should see the enormous smile on my face every time I get a notification that someone has commented on one of my posts or every time I overcome another milestone of visitors/views. It’s such a rewarding feeling! And this makes me dedicate myself even more in writing interesting posts. It’s a vicious circle.

But all this would be impossible without you, so THANK YOU for following me, reading my posts, sharing them, commeting and giving feedback. You guys rock!

P.S.: By the time I finished writing this post the blog reached 231 visitors: =D
