Month of April is always my favorite for so many reasons, There are many birthdays in the family from start till the end of April month. (for the love of cakes definitely) Besides other birthday celebrations, My favorite celebration is my CK’s birthday. Oh yeah CK stands for my very first & favorite blog Creative Khadija. Today my baby blog turned 6 years old MashaAllah. I am so happy, Its hard to believe how this fun journey started years back & still going on successfully. I remember how my blog was crawling and then started taking steps just like a baby!! Its running now Alhamdulillah. What a wonderful journey throughout. These are the best years of my life no doubt.
Anyways, Last year on my 5th blogversary, I celebrated it & I shared a long recap kinda writing. Do you remember? (Check here again if you would like to read) But this year I think a tiny miny recap of 6 years of blogging is fine.
To be very honest, I was a worst newbie blogger who started without any plans & goals in mind. Shared random articles with rough captions of my art with caps lock On sometimes. Haha. I were a busy student those days who rarely update blog! Whoops
I started making tutorials of my craft ideas & luckily got featured at several international forums, websites & magazines etc. My family was not sure if I am doing something useful but when they saw my blog success & they notice people are asking me to interviews for publishing in their magazines/websites, then they feel good about it. Otherwise they always think I am blogging to pass my time creatively. pheww
Blog was going great & getting lots of success! I made many blogger friends who are still my besties. They are best part of my online life. Blogging & university both were going great. I left blogspot & jumped into wordpress thing! I were doing everything a-z alone at blogspot but as a dumb with wordpress thing, my brother helped me with everything. From blog design to tech stuff. Thanks Co-Admin CK!
It was the right time to decide something & take a step forward ! So I started selling my handmade arts, crafts, paintings & fashion design projects. Alhamdulillah response was great. I got some really good projects & then I plan to start my business properly. Blog was getting neglected a little but I work hard to manage both tasks.
After completing university education, When everyone started jobs while I were not in a mood but I submitted some CVs for a job too. I think I am my very own boss So I concentrate more on what I want to do. haha. Art is what I can do happily. I got good sponsors and affiliates for my blog. I enjoy blogging while focusing more on my handmade business. But freelancing was also going well.
I slow down blogging a bit & focused more on my art sales, stepped into digital marketing as well. Getting featured & published as usual. Started working with a UK based fashion designer. Also started writing for some international blogs and website.
Okay 2016 blogging journey just started, But to be very honest, Year 2015/2016 (so far) is the most successful of all previous years. I were only into hobby blogging but when I realize its not just blogging, I can earn handsome. So I take it seriously in last two years. And things started working wonderfully Alhamdulillah!
It’s not about how eagerly I were running behind success or fame or money. It’s all about my passion, I never get bored a single day through this creative fun journey. Every other day I get opportunities & encouraging compliments from my clients, my customers, my wonderful readers from all over the world. They make me feel special. The whole motivation behind all this was the support of my friends, readers, followers, clients and customers. You art lover people are really motivation behind all this success.
