July 28, 2014 was my first ever blog post. It was titled Why I Started To Blog. I remember why I started to blog. It was to not only help inspire others; also to inspire myself as well. It was also something that I wanted to do for many years, but just never put in enough energy to do so. My recent blog post Thanks To My Friend Double M!! was my 100th blog post. When I found this out about this achievement, I was happy with myself. I don’t think people who have never blogged get on how tough it is to begin and maintain blogging on a regular basis.
It takes a lot of dedication and hard work. Not to mention that there are many times that you will run into a slump in writing another post. And if you are looking for a strong following, it takes a good period of time for this to happen. I have a respect for all who blog, and continue to find the passion to continue to write. To hit 100 blog post on Inspirational Words, Thoughts and Other Things means a lot to me.
A big reason I launched this blog was to help me get through some challenging times in 2014. 2014 was one of the most up and down years I have experienced in a long time. I had just made a career move, and having to figure out what my next move was going to be was challenging. That was a very scary time for myself. On top of that I had some other personal setbacks as well. I not only ended a serious relationship; I also walked away from long term friendships as well.My blog was a great way for myself to overcome and deal with my challenges in 2014. It was also a way to help inspire others and look at life in the most positive light.
My blog has taught me a lot about life, and I have learned more about who I am as a person. My blog is my measuring stick as a person, as I have had successes as well as setbacks along the way. I know that many people look up to me, and I also know that I have let people down as well. I will say to anyone that I have my good and bad points about myself. It’s a forever journey always having to grow and self improve. My blog is here not only to help inspire people. My blog is here to let you learn more about Kareem Bonner, and how he views the world and the lessons he has picked up from it.
Hopefully through my blogs and stories, that it helps you to become better and inspire those around you. Inspirational Words, Thoughts and Other Things will continue to be around now and into the immediate future. Soon, I hope to write about my 200th, 300th, 500th and 1000th posts. 1000 posts would be awesome.
Thanks for the love and support reading and following my blog up to this point. It has been a life changer for me, and hope it can be for others as well.
