Today marks the sawwucegawd.com 1 year anniversary, and what a year it has been. I honestly didn’t think I would have make it this far. But I know I wouldn’t have been able to do it without you guys.
Since this website has begun, there hasn’t been a single day in which I have received any traffic. Just knowing someone was visiting, reading an article or just checking to see if there has been anything new posted keeps me from not giving up.
Before I started this website I was just a regular student in their first year of college. For reasons I would rather withheld, I wasn’t happy at university. Although I was having fun making friends, studying and going out I simply felt unfulfilled. Every day I was just going through the motions, waking up with no passion, no real drive for anything. It’s a sensation I wouldn’t wish on anyone, feeling as if life is living you instead of you living life.
At the turn of 2016, I began to teach myself html. On March 19, 2016, I managed to pluck up enough courage to release my website to the public, most notably r/hiphopheads. My self esteem was fragile. The comments would make or break me. The internet can be a cruel place for content creators yet you guys never let me experience that. From that day forward, I woke up with a purpose, I woke up happy, I woke up excited!
Thank you guys for bringing joy back into my life and all the support. Creating content that people like and enjoy is one of the most rewarding things you can do. I would encourage everyone to try it at least once. Throughout this past year I have been able to achieve so many things I would have never expected and there’s only going to be more to come!
