It’s been one year here with you guys!

Last Thursday it’s been a year since I started this blog ☺, but let me start from the beginning.

Nope, we won’t go to this beginning 😄, but yes, that’s simple Ula about 24 years ago when she had no idea that one day she’ll have over 10k followers 😃

I had more than 3 blogs in my life before this one (all the previous ones were written in Polish though). I’ve always had this passion to share my thoughts “with the world”. If some of my advice helps others in any way, that’s even more rewarding for me ☺. I deleted all my old blogs, oh no, sorry there is one still there (in Polish). Anyway, it was some time since I hadn’t had one and this idea came to my mind again, but this time (as you can see) I wanted to write in English since I’m in Canada and my boyfriend doesn’t speak Polish and I wanted him to know what I write as well ❤☺. Last, but not least as I wrote in my first post, English is the most common language in the world (and many Polish people know it as well) so it has all worked out for me ☺.

I’ve started this blog in March 2016 and I published first, second, third post and there was nothing, meaning barely any comments and 2 or 3 views a day. I talked with my boyfriend if I should continue doing this and he said that if I like it then yes. That was an excellent answer for me ☺. I like writing, I enjoy it a lot so I was doing it out of passion (and still am! ☺) and it didn’t matter for me that I didn’t have many visitors back then. Now seeing you all here, all the comments and all the likes – I am so thrilled, because you encourage me to write even more. I appreciate each and every comment and like and all the views/ visits to my blog. I love seeing comments such as: “thank you” or “you do a great job” or “I love your blog”.

I cannot express how much I appreciate you all here and sometimes I say to my boyfriend that I cannot believe that over 10,000 people have visited my blog and decided to click follow or put their email address to subscribe. I cannot believe that I have so many likes, so many comments and views. I’m sure of one thing though, that I’ll never take pride in myself, because of those numbers ☺.
Also, I have my boyfriend, my best friend (and they’re both will keep me grounded if it’s necessary ☺) and my parents’ life lessons in my head (forever) to be humble (!) and respect everyone (no matter who they are and what they do).

My parents and I many years ago 💛☺

I think that the more successful my blog is, the more humble I become.

I’m writing this post not to show what are the “numbers” on my blog, but I’m writing to say that I thank each and every one of you for being here once, twice or regularly. This journey on this blog wouldn’t be as fun and as exciting without you guys! ☺

I bow to all of you! ☺

Last, but not least I’d like to say how appreciative I am for my boyfriend being in my life who believes in me so much so that I believe in myself more! Thank you my love!!! ❤☺❤

  2. ohh my gosh this is really inspiring………..even i have started a new blog and i am getting very less views so i was thinking of quieting this but after reading your I AM NOT GOING TO QUIET
    please give me some suggestions on how to improve my blog

    1. Awesome, don’t quit if only you like what you’re doing. Just do it with passion and people will notice it sooner or later, but they will ☺. Be patient and work ☺.

  3. Dear Ula, I have just recently found your blog and find it so inspirational. I am so pleased for your success which must have followed a lot of hard work. Thank you so much for ‘liking’ some of my posts and subscribing to my blog. As I am only starting out, it means an awful lot 🙂 I hope you find some value in reading my posts. I will continue to read your older posts and am delighted I have so much worthwhile reading ahead of me. I wish you continued success, Lol 🙂

      1. My pleasure.I’m not much into fashion and that’s why didn’t follow you but you have a lovely blog. My best wishes.

      1. At the beginning I wasn’t posting much as you can take a look ☺, but with time the more I posted the more people visited and of course, interacting with other bloggers – that’s very important and social media ☺. Overall, work and patience ☺.

  4. Hi simple Ula!
    Just dropped by to say thanks for following my blog (proyectonoesis).
    I am pleased to see you have been doing well in 1 year publishing… I hope you do better as people seen to like your writing.
    I myself will take a look more closely and probably finds I will comment on later… Cheers!

  5. Congratulations and great job. Your story sounds a lot like mine. I have been blogging for 2 months now and I see a few views a day, sometimes more, sometimes less, and the occasional likes. I hope that one day I have as many views and likes as you. You should be very proud of yourself and your accomplishments. 🙋🐦

  6. Wow! That’s a huge following! I’ve been blogging since 2009 and have a very modest following. And you are one of my followers, so thank you for that.
    One thing I noticed on your profile, you have a Masters in Ed. Have you not been able to translate that into a great teaching career? Write to me about it. As a retired Ontario teacher, I am always happy to see a new crop find their way.

    1. Thank you! Well, I was a teacher for 8 years in Poland ☺ if I ever go back to it, time will show I think, but for now I’m good where I am.

  7. Ola, “sempre Ula”. Sinto muito não entender sua língua, para comunicar escrevendo algo sobre o valor de sua personalidade, razão porque existe se comunicando, tendo um Qi invejável. Abraço!

  8. Hi Ula, thanks for stopping by. You’ve some interesting posts and reflective thoughts in your writing. Nice to meet you! Happy May Day. Kind regards, Iris 🙂

  13. Congratulations Ula! 10000 followers (even more now, I see!) You must be doing something right! I’m glad I find you, I’ve been enjoying perusing your blog. I am also Canadian and half Polish (3rd generation) I have fond memories of my grandfather teaching me some words, how to count and some Polish songs. I wish I was more willing to learn more back then!

  14. Definitely an inspiration! I haven’t dedicated near enough time (yet?!) to get your level of success but I hope my first year is half as good as yours has been 😀

  15. Thanks for taking a look at my articles I thought I’d pay you the same favor. Yeah, I’m in the same situation as you were a year ago. Congrats by the way! I would love to see 10,000 subsrcibers I know it does not happen overnight but I’d love to know your secret.
    I too have the support of my wife who is maybe more excited about the blog than I am.
    You have a great site and good taste in blogging.

  16. Hi Ula! Wow – congratulations – you’ve done so well in 1 year with so many followers…I would have absolutely no idea how to do that! Thank you so much for all the likes and the follow…and I will certainly take a closer look at your blog…thanks, jx
