I started Diplateevo in 2009 with a simple idea to simply have a way to share the things on my mind. Since then the response has been truly amazing. I got just over 70,000 pageviews this year, thanks to the incredible support I’ve had for my writing.
To me, writing is a form of organizing my thoughts. It’s a space where I can put my thoughts into words so that they become clear. Essentially, it’s a place for me to organize my thoughts and cultivate my own voice.
Having the space and discipline to regularly put words to the things on my mind is one of the most powerful habits I have ever adapted. It’s something that I strongly encourage people to do, because it helps bring out who you are and what you believe in the midsts of all the noise in our daily lives.
Whether it be public on a blog or private in a journal, the goal of writing should be nothing more than a manifestation of who you are. Be honest and real with yourself.
And if you make it public on a blog, it just might happen to receive feedback from people all around.
Thank you to everyone who has read and supported me in 2013! Looking forward to new heights in 2014!
