Joyeux Anniversaire: Celebrating ebbony&lune’s First Year
About year ago, I was in my student apartment bedroom, fairy lights on, candle lit, sitting on my bed with a pen and notebook in hand; it was way past midnight (2:30AM, to be (almost) exact), and I was pulling out hairs trying to come up with a focus for my new blog... and more importantly, a name. I wanted this blog to be professional, something relevant to my music therapy work; I wanted it to be a creative project, to be casual and readable, and I wanted people to enjoy it; but mostly, I wanted it to embody who I am, a place to share my experiences and interests with others. A week later, I had purchased my domain. Sitting on a couch at the end of a university dorm's hallway, in the middle of the night (I had an overnight shift to make sure none of the campers did anything crazy), I found myself typing away at my laptop, writing up new ideas and content for my soon-to-be-launched blog.
Now that ebbony&lune has reached its 1st blogiversary, I wanted to share a collection of some of the posts fro this past year. Looking back, I do wish I spent more time working on building up my "brand" and online presence, but I had other more pressing and time-consuming things to worry about (like my last term of school, and my internship, among other things). But, it's definitely come a long way, and I will do my best to keep posting regularly.
According to my analytics, these are the most popular, most visited posts of the year:
