My Blogging Journey | Shahani Lopez
This month of July is my Blog Anniversary.
It’s been five years since I started blogging, though it was an on and off blogging because of busy schedules in running our family’s business. I’ve been so caught up with work and I forgot to write blogs about all my adventures. There were times I thought I should just quit doing blogs but then the back of my mind tells me not to even though I do not know where was that coming from. But maybe because my motivation is to share and inspire people with my travel and fashion experiences, and so I never quit up until now.
One of my favorite travels is when we went to Gigantes Island (link here https://www.shahanilopez.com/2016/01/isla-de-gigantes.html), which was sometime in September 2015, where the influx of tourists was still not yet the problem. When I blogged about Gigantes Island, I was surprised that some of my readers messaged me asking more about the place. I then thought to myself that blogging is also a channel of helping others to have their travel adventures.
In 2016, I blogged about my Balesin Island experience (link here https://www.shahanilopez.com/2016/01/balesin-island_31.html), on the same note, most of my readers messaged me and inquired regarding Balesin. I don’t know but maybe they thought I am a travel agent because of my blog approach when it comes to blogging my travels. Sadly, only those who have a membership can visit the island and lucky me for that opportunity to experience Balesin. But other than that, I am still happy I was able to share that experience that somehow made my readers dream for Balesin, who knows some of them made to Balesin already by this time.
In June 2017, I had my domain and it’s truly a milestone in my blogging passion. Shahanilopez.com <3
The year 2017 I can say was the busiest year I had. I had to travel to and from not just for leisure but at the same for business purposes and those were the times I cannot spare time for writing. I’m sure you guys know how tiring a trip can be. It was then the time, I found myself already off from blogging.
The year 2018 was the most turning point of my life, I became a mother. I became a full-time mom up until the year 2019.
By the mid-year 2019, I ventured to another passion turn business called “Littlepuffs Event Styling”. (link of here https://www.facebook.com/littlepuffseventstyling/) I was busy-as-a-bee in styling Events and blogging was somehow out of the picture anymore.
When 2020 came in, a lot of things happened like this pandemic. While we were in strict community quarantine, I realized God opened me to an opportunity to get back on my blogging since I have a lot of time to think and meditate on things that I want to do in my life. Truly, I can say that this crisis makes people insane but then we can always see beautiful things amidst a crisis. So I decided to go back to my writing not just catching up writing my previous travels but at the same sharing my experience as a first time mom and event designing.
