Whoa, July. Where did you get to? As I sit here, with coffee and layered in heavy sweater (hello Nairobi weather?), it’s 7pm on a Friday. It certainly has been a month of crazy and wonderful.
How was yours?
This post is a bit delayed because other than being busy, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to post but here we are… let’s just go with it.
In case you didn’t know, Suckerforcoffe turned one 2 weeks ago! Eeeep!! A huge milestone for me as I have come a long way. It most certainly hasn’t been easy but I can’t complain.
Fun facts about Suckerforcoffe…
It was originally formed on 26th June, 2016 but I put up my first post on 20th July,2016. Which is the day I consider my blogiversary.
What’s in a name?
I get asked a lot what my name means but there is no hidden meaning about it. Suckerforcoffe means just that, Sucker for Coffee. I am a girl who loves her caffeine and I needed a moniker that depicts just that. It just so happens for a moment I forgot how to spell while setting up my tumblr account( no, there’s no edit option), and for uniformity in my social media, Suckerforcoffe I became.
The face behind the name…
I don’t think I have ever introduced myself properly on here. *clears throat* Hi! My name is Faith, known to many as Fay. An old soul. Flowerchild. Coffee drinker. Notebook hoarder. Lover of life and all things bookish.
I have been a reader since I was 9years old and avid reader since 2016. I don’t stick to one genre of books, I do, however, have a favorite book… The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma. *pssst…please go read it!*More often than not you’ll find me in between the pages of a book.
Why did I start blogging?
For the longest time possible I have always wanted to start a blog but always managed to talk myself out of it, until one day, I didn’t. I wanted to create my own space where I can talk about books and muse about. With the help and much support from Simthil, who helped with the process, Suckerforcoffe was born! She was also the first friend I made in the book community!Thank you Simone , you are a total babe 🙂
Lessons I have learnt from blogging…
- There are days you won’t feel like blogging, and that’s okay.
- Being true to yourself is very important. Be authentic. Don’t compare you work to other people.
- Planning and organization is key. Knowing when and what to post. Learning how to prioritize.
- Time management. *still struggling with this one* learning how to balance blogging and school work has been challenging for me but I have managed to work through it.
- Your favorite book(s) might not be others favorite. We all like different books and/or genres and we should respect that.
In a nutshell…
I want to say a big thank you, for every follow, comment, like and share from you guys. It means a lot to me that there are people out there who read and enjoy my work. Thank you for your support.
Happy new month and a wonderful day ahead! 🙂
