1 Year Anniversary on Coil
This is surreal. It feels like yesterday when I published my 6 month anniversary article. Now, here I am, writing my 1 year anniversary post which is amazing and crazy at the same time. Technically, September 11th, 2019 was the first day I took blogging seriously with the 30-Day Blogging Challenge.
Having spent an entire year on the platform, I have learned a lot and have grown more than I expected to grow. I've met new friends from across the world and have hit new goals that I didn't think were possible.
It's an honor to be here, honestly. It's a privilege to be able to create and post content while also engaging with other talented publishers within the community.
Coil has become my home on the internet. To me, social media doesn't compare because it doesn't feel personal like Coil does. Spending time here feels like living in my happy place. A place of rest, comfort, and growth wrapped into one.
Lasting an entire year is quite an achievement for me since I am free-spirited, struggling sometimes to stick with particular commitments long-term. I'm glad I stuck this out and continue to create content I can be proud of producing.
I'd like to thank the CBC for their continual support of myself and of one another. The Telegram group is still going strong and is open to new members. Thank you to all readers from Twitter and from other corners of the internet.
Coil has a bright future ahead. It's important to look at what the staff and publishers are doing to help grow the overall Web Monetization ecosystem, not just the Coil website itself.
Web Monetization technology is still new, and we are still the pioneers on the field, testing the waters before the floodgates open to the masses.
The biggest thing that I want you to get out of this post is this...
Never give up and always believe.
If you are reaching towards a goal but then running into pitfalls, understand that it's normal. Success wants to see how bad you want it before you get it.
You are indeed capable of achieving greatness, you just need to stay the course and not allow distractions to enter your view. I'm in your corner, rooting for your dreams to come true from continual work and dedication.
Thank you for celebrating 1 year with me.
*(and may the coffee be with you)*
Here's to year 2, baby ;)
A lil' extra...
