Hi, drama fans and friends!
I wanted to come to you all with an end of year musings post. As I’ve mentioned before, 2018 has been a roller coaster. I can’t necessarily say that it was bad, but I can’t say that it was good either. It was a year full of challenging obstacles in my personal life that directly impacted the amount of k-dramas I watched this year.
Challenges aside, It Started With a K-Drama went through a radical change this year. Not only did I change the site layout, but I upgraded to the business plan, which is why you saw ads this year. Web hosting costs are no joke, especially when you’re a small scale blog like mine. I also introduced my podcast Weekend In Dramaland, which I host with my real life BFF, Tiff.
I know there are so many ways I can improve my blog, and I already have a list full of resolutions and goals. Not only am I committed to learning Korean in 2019, but the podcast will be done on a consistent, scheduled basis. The same goes for this blog. It’s tough to find the time to give it the attention it deserves when I work full time and take care of my grandparents. (One is currently going through chemo and radiation treatments, so the past two months have been physically and mentally draining.)
But I truly believe I can find time if I try harder to follow a schedule. This blog is my solace and I love sharing all of this content with all of you. So, I hope you’ll continue to be patient and cheer me on. I’m already branching out into k-pop and I have Korean language software, so I’ve got many things in the works that will also be great blog content. Maybe even some k-food content because who doesn’t want to see pictures and reviews of yummy Korean food?
So I guess the purpose of this post is to say thank you for being here for me. Thank you for following and enjoying this blog. I promise to work hard and keep it going for as long as I possibly can. As long as k-dramas are part of my life, you will have me here reviewing and talking about them.
That brings this post to a very, very important area. I need your input and thoughts.
Do you like my posts? Can I improve on anything? I know I am far from perfect, and I work hard to bring content to this blog, but I know my posting schedule isn’t very consistent. I promise it’s a 2019 goal. Constructive criticism is important. Even if you don’t find fault, what else would you like to see me blog about here?
Tomorrow, 12/30/18, is my birthday, so I may not respond to comments immediately. I always respond and/or like every single comment left on my blog, so please don’t be shy and don’t feel frustrated if I take a day or two to get back to you.
I will post in the new year my list of goals, plans and resolutions so that I have to hold myself accountable to them.
More details will follow at that time, so keep a close eye. I may also introduce a raffle to the blog as a thank you from me to you for all of your support. Honestly, all of you who are commenting and visiting the blog regularly are what help fuel my passion and give me inspiration for new content.
I love you all.
