3 Years of Blogging

3 Today!! Woop Woop!!

Thanks so much for your support along the way. Here are a few highlights and reflections on my journey so far.

God bless..


Year 1: Feel the Buzz

Exactly 3 years ago today, I was sat in a cafe along one of Bristol’s ever intriguing and eclectic high streets – Gloucester Road (See article: the longest stretch of Independent shops in the UK).

With background chatter, finely brewed coffee, and an overpriced slice of indulgent cake, I finally put the finishing touches on my new blog – Reposed Thought.

The first year was such an exciting adventure as there was so much to explore and to learn. From my testimony of how I became a Christian, to the never ending journey of an Architect, there was also much to share.

The inaugural year also gave birth to a newly formed interest in writing poetry with my personal favourites being Tales of an Introvert and Poor Mans Tale.

Year 2: Honeymoon over?

The second year was undoubtedly more challenging as the creativity started to fizzle out along with the initial buzz created when the blog first began. With the added pressure of starting my first full time 9-5 job post uni, the time to create was also drastically reduced. Still I persevered to create Big City Dreams and Morning Run Thoughts during that seemingly dry patch.

I constantly found myself reflecting on how ‘good’ or ‘bad’ a post was based on what response I got. I was determined to not let that be the case in the following year.

Year 3: Recreate the high

Throughout 2017, I have felt a combined desire to blog as an outlet for myself and out of respect for my followers. But also, for the sheer fun of it.

This has in turn freed me to create when inspired rather than posting to maintain some kind of  interest. I have felt some of that initial creativity creep back in. My undoubted favourite series from the past year was the daily Zambia photo journal.

Other more recent posts based on experiences include Love Your Neighbour and Plateaued Ambition. The latter recently came 8th out of 30 in my first poetry competition with an honorary mention.

Year 4: ?

Well.. Lets see what happens..

In all that I do, as a blogger or as a Christian, it is my deepest desire to use my God-given talents to help point people to Jesus and his love for us as a broken people.

I recently had an interesting conversation with a fellow blogger that I’ve never met about one of my poems. They said that even though they do not share my faith, they could appreciate what I had to say about life and its challenges and how my faith gives me strength through them.

2 Years and counting – Bloggerversary

Wow! Where has the time gone..

Thank you so much for following, liking, encouraging and supporting Reposed Thought to this point, it’s second birthday. Its so exciting to see this little hobby grow from its humble beginnings in the midst of deep procrastination to seeing out two amazing years of creative writing. It’s also been a real joy discovering other bloggers with similar interests in writing, poetry, photography and more.

Lessons learnt…

One of the biggest challenges has always been consistency. As most bloggers will tell you, it is so much easier to craft a well written piece than to consistently reproduce content of a high standing.

Top tip…

Post rubbish. By that I mean keep churning away, share incomplete stuff because the longer you try and perfect it, the further it will get from its route.

Every story is unique… Share yours!

A few months ago, I had the privilege of attending a football match along with nearly 90,000 others. Every one of us saw the same game, but each from his/her unique perspective. There was the eager cameraman on the touchline looking through his camera lens all game; the rowdy hooligan in row Z proudly donning his teams colours and singing like no-one was watching. And then there was me (no I wasn’t in row Z).

One of my goals from the outset was to inspire others through storytelling, poetry and simply life.

2 years on, I want to take this opportunity to say thanks for supporting me on this journey.. so far.

God bless
