Something I Miss

Posted in Blogathon, Personal

Blogathon Day 8: Something You Miss (previous prompt Day in the Life via photos or just pure text)

So I decided to swap today’s prompt for another one, because I ended up not running errands today and I’d rather do a DIL post when I’m actually do something that day, so I’ll do that later this week instead!

Anyways. One thing I really miss is snow. I lived in Ohio for 3 winters and something I enjoyed every winter was the snow fall. Even after living there for over 2 years, I still loved it.

There’s something so peaceful about watching the snow fall. I hope to eventually move back up north or to another country that has snow. One day!

How I Got Into Blogging

Posted in Blogathon, Personal

Blogathon Day 3: How did you get into blogging and how has it changed for you since then?

I remember I first got into making websites when I was around 12. I remember seeing websites made by other people and thinking “I can do that”, and so I did. I created my first site on Geocities and it was then that I fell in love with coding and trying to make my own graphics. Around that age I remember I found this random forum and it was there that I learned about blogging and what I could truly turn my website into. Shortly after being on Geocities for a bit I got a subdomain on someone’s site and eventually opened up my first site, myveracity,net (shown in the image above) and then moved sites over the years. Besides using my own websites I also used Livejournal for the longest time and still have access to my old posts, some of which cause me to cringe haha.

Back then I remember just coming home from school and signing on the computer and just writing about my day. Back then I used to share who I had a crush on and other things I probably shouldn’t have been posting on the internet, but I was young. Over the last 5+ years I just fell out of blogging and the blogging scene and I miss it. Back then I just did it because I enjoyed it, but I found I was overthinking everything I wanted to post. I wanted to make sure it was perfect and didn’t want to just blog for the sake of blogging. This is something I’m hoping to change this year, I want to share things and I want to be able to look back on the things I posted and be so thankful that I have those memories.

Writing About Myself Is Hard

Posted in Blogathon, Personal

Blogathon Day 2: Introduction, talk about yourself + share a photo.

So uh … like the title says writing about myself is hard. You’d think with 15+ years of blogging and having to make content that revolved around me that I’d get better at it, I haven’t. So here goes nothing … my name is Veronica but for short most just call me Vero. I’m an avid gamer and currently stream 6-7 days on Twitch. The current game I play the most is Overwatch, but I do enjoy other games too (like World of Warcraft, Zelda, and more). When I’m not streaming myself playing games I can most  likely be found creating gaming content for my YouTube channel. When I’m not doing that I can most likely be found working, I currently work (2 years at the end of March!) for a gaming company (no I won’t say which one). I LOVE my job, basically I make sure the players are behaving and handle player reports. I’ve been working in the gaming community for almost 3 years and I hope to continue to work in it.

Besides gaming I also love watching shows on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu. On Amazon Prime I’m currently watching Monk and I’m on season 4! I love using shows and movies as background noise when I work since I do it from home.

Let’s see what else … I also love animals although I haven’t owned an animal for several years now (used to have a dog named Neo that sadly had to be put to sleep in 2012). I’m hoping to move again in the next 2 or so years and once I do I’ll be adopting a dog or a cat … or both, who knows. I also became single earlier this year and I don’t see that changing anytime soon, which is fine. I’ve totally accepted that I’ll end up a crazy cat/dog lady one day đŸ˜› The picture I shared if one of my favorites even though it’s years old, I just think it’s funny.

I think that’s it … feel free to ask questions in the comments!
