Hello there! Welcome to my brand new blog – Living Vazzy!
After being away for almost a month, I am excited to be finally back with a new name, domain, layout, and basically an entire new site to stay in touch with all of you. You have no idea how much I’ve missed you! As a “first post” in this blog, I am going to give you an introduction to this new beloved space of mine.
Living Vazzy is a lifestyle blog created to share my journey in striving my life goals – to be healthy, to be happy, and to live a life filled with passion. This is where I am going to post about the wonderful adventures that I take, the healthy recipes that I am trying out, the challenges that I face along the way, the random thoughts that I have to shout out loud, the inspiring people that I meet, and other stuff that might interest you.
Why Living Vazzy?
You may have known that I started blogging 7 years ago when I was 15 years old. Like many of you during your teenage years, I blogged about my every day life, about those little things like the new dress that I bought or the movie that I watched with my friends. The teenage me thought that my life was pretty cool, so I came up with the name “Living the Vazzy Life.” The word vazzy derived from my last name and I like the sound of it. It rhymes with warm and fuzzy and jazzy. It feels kinda like me.
However, as I grew older, my blog grew older with me too. Instead of just blogging about my life, I started sharing my thoughts and opinions about issues that concerned me. I shared about the lifestyle that I was trying to cultivate as I grew into an adult. I shared about how I strived to be positive as life got tough. I shared about a lot of things; and I received really supportive responses from friends and family and even random strangers.
A friend of mine told me that because of the healthy lifestyle that I was developing, she started going to the gym. An acquaintance of mine told me that my post about my bucket list was motivating. People I didn’t know messaged me on Facebook telling me that they could resonate with what I blogged about. I realized that my blog was not really about how I was “living the vazzy life,” but how I was “living vazzy”. Vazzy does not mean cool (Yes, I realized later that my life isn’t cool after all 😂), but it is about being positive and motivated all the time.
And that, my child, is how
I met your mother “Living Vazzy” happened.
This blog is not just about me, but it is about you too. Because of who I am – just another normal girl learning to be strong as she grows up – I hope that I am able to connect with you, and that we can learn and grow together. This is also why I decided to take up a new domain, “livingvazzy.com” instead of using the old “wendyvazzy.com.” My name is not there, because it is not just about me anymore.
#thevazzyproject of rebranding my blog was not just about creating a new website and coming up with a new name and logo; it was a lot more than that. I spent a lot of my time asking myself questions, trying to get to know myself better to decide what I want my blog to be. I didn’t expect it to be such a self-discovery journey when I decided to take on my blog as a personal project before the summer, and I am really glad that I did.
I am so excited that this blog is finally launched today and that you are here reading this piece. Feel free to navigate around and check out the different tabs that I have. I am still trying to improve my current idea. So, if you have any feedback or comment, don’t hesitate to send me a message or drop a comment below. I can’t wait to share with you the many topics that I have in mind. Till then! 🙂
