It's my blogaversary! :)

One year ago today, was created, then titled "Random Musings". (Aspire came later.)

And in that year's time, I have written almost 200 posts (this is my 199th), and I'm 5 followers shy of 200.

I have received numerous comments, some wonderful, some witty, some sweet, and I'm extremely grateful to all my faithful followers and commenters--you make blogging fun. :)

I've found out my love for graphic design, and also learned some HTML and CSS.

But most importantly, I've been blessed to be blogging. Putting my thoughts out and spinning my ideas through form of pixels on a screen that others can remark upon, be it good or bad. I've gone through a one year journey and transformation--don't believe me? Just look at some of my earlier posts. ;)

This has been a wonderful year--it's hard to believe that a year ago, my blog was barely established, and hosting a generic template as well as paragraph posts. And now--at least I hope--Aspire has become a place where you can come and experience something. Where you can laugh at some of the stupid things that my family and friends and I do. Where you can be touched by something deeper. Where you can enjoy looking through someone else's perspective, if just for a bit. Where you can view variety of many random musings.

But hey, what does my URL say anyway? ;)

This has been an amazing year--and I can't wait to see where Aspire is in another year's time
Thanks for being there. :)
