Things Might Not Have Gone As Planned But OH WELL…

2019 REFLECTION –

WOW, in just a few days, 2019 will be over. I am ready to move to new and better things. There might still be adversaries to face in 2020, but I am excited to step into the next phase of life.

Personally, 2019 has been a very experimental year for me, and that has also reflected on my blog. I have made a lot of important decisions this year, some were quite risky, but I am holding onto faith that all my choices will yield good fruit in the coming year.

Anyways I made my decision to start this blog in 2017. I created a site and got my domain name in July of that same year, but I never made any official post until May 2018. After posting my introduction, I went “MIA”(missing in action) because I did not have enough time. I was also uncertain about how to arrange my content. But finally, in December 2018, I gathered the courage to just write. I was not sure if what I was putting down was making any sense or if anyone would actually care to read. I tried to do my research from other bloggers in the same spectrum, but I was still confused about what approach to take and how to really let my personality show in my writing. So if you have been a long-time follower of Drama Snacked, you will notice that I was not posting frequently until September of 2019. I feel that was when I really got into my groove. I decided to let go of all my research and just wing things. So I started posting about whatever interested me at the moment. Also, I switched to a more informal style of writing, and now I have a template for how things should look on my blog. By doing me, people started visiting this blog more. Of course, this does not only attribute to that but also to how frequently I was posting. From 2018 to 2019, I have experimented with many different approaches for writing. I played around a lot with the design/theme for my blog, and I also tried to add new exciting elements.

All the same, I truly enjoyed every moment. This blog has really been a safe space for me through the second half of this year. I was going through a lot personally, but whenever I started drafting a post, I felt the hope of something actually moving forward for me. I felt at peace here, and I have experienced a lot of growth this year. So even though things did not go as planned from the beginning, I am glad that I took this journey with all my readers. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT. 

MOVING FORWARD TO 2020 –

Now that I am sure of how to go about things, I will continue to improve with time.

In 2019 I had planned a lot of drama reviews, but I could not keep up. In 2020, I will give more attention to the drama section because it is begging me for love at this point. Later today, before I go to bed, I will make a list of all the dramas I want to watch and categorize them according to their year of release. By doing that, I can prioritize the most recent shows and start going down from there.

Concerning Variety shows, I am currently in search of something interesting to watch. So if anyone has good recommendations, please leave it in the comment section. Now I really need to enjoy a show to come on here and recap it for you guys, so I want something exciting. I also have plans for the Anime|Manga section. So no worries, I have been jotting things down. All I pray for now is time to do it all. The Music section will continue as usual because I like how it looks so far.

Spoiler – I have a few specials planned for next year, and Star Showcase will now be more frequent. I plan to introduce a new artist to you all on a bi-weekly schedule, so stay tuned.

Now even though I want to post a lot of exciting content for my readers, I still do not want to put too much pressure on myself. So my motto is, “I do as I can.” I have already created a posting schedule that I plan to start following as soon as possible. There is no need for a new year resolution, I might as well start now. If ever I go “MIA” for a while, just know I am busy with school and other random stuff that pops up in life. But once I come back, I will give you all a rundown of why.

MY VISION FOR DRAMA SNACKED IN 2020 –

  • To get more feedback and engagement from my readers. Please use the comment section respectfully😊. Thanks.
  • I really want to include a forum on this blog. It was part of my initial design for Drama Snacked, so I hope to accomplish that next year.
  • I want to continue to post frequently and, if possible, invite other writers on the blog because I might be requiring a village to keep up during my busy school schedule.
  • I want to start a YouTube channel as an extension of this blog, so let us see how that goes. Wish me luck.
  • Most of all, I want to continue to enjoy what I do here. This will not be a problem so far as I do not put pressure on myself.

That is all for now. I honestly had a lot to say, but I made it as brief as possible. I was also contemplating if it was too early to write an end of year reflection, but I felt like posting one now. To all my readers, please continue to show your support, I really appreciate it. Take care💓💓💓.

  1. I’ve been blogging for about nine months now and it’s been a challenge to figure out how to brand myself. Through trial and error I found my niche and several categories within that niche. I also did a lot of research and learned from other bloggers.

    I’m glad you stepped out there, you are so well-written. Does it come naturally or a lot of practice? I’m amazed at how some writers seem to write so effortlessly. For me, it’s a struggle, I know what I want to say but I struggle with structure and the words.

    1. Thank you so much.
      I truly understand what you mean by knowing what to say but struggling with how to word and structure things. I do experience that a lot and I sometimes get stuck on a draft for so long.
      Honestly writing is hard but I believe that I’m starting to get the hang of it.
