My 3 Year Blogaversary!

Wow, it’s hard to believe that this month in January, 2020 I am celebrating my 3rd year blogging as Vintage Retroman! After waiting decades in fear, in January of 2017 I decided to take the plunge as a writer. I still remember setting up my website and having no clue what I was doing. All I had was a niche, some inspiration, and a few social media followers. I know I haven’t been as active the past year as I should have been. I would like to apologize to my followers. I had been dealing with some health issues, a new career, getting my insurance license, being a husband and father of 4 growing children, and several other issues. I am working on pacing myself, but I miss writing. I took this hiatus to take care of myself, but I am back!

As I reflect back over the past 3 years, I think about how much being in a blogging community has impacted me. Reading the experiences of my fellow bloggers has encouraged me and helped me learn more about myself. Much of what I write on has to do with retro gaming, music, movies, and culture from the 1970’s, 1980’s, and 1990’s. I hope that as you read my work, they you will catch the subliminal messages of encouragement within the literary works that I have created.

Ultimately, it is my hope that if you have a dream, that you go after it no matter what the cost or sacrifice is. Never let fear of the unknown or the criticism of people make you feel inadequate. I choose to believe that God put us all here on this earth for a reason. With 2020 now here, I encourage you all to step out on faith more often. It is important to have assurance within yourself that you can do anything!

Lastly, I want my reader to know that I do this for the passion and the love of my craft. It was never about money. I am grateful to say that my 200+ blog subscribers, 300+ Facebook followers, and 1300+ Instagram followers were all attained organically. No gimmicks, no paid marketing, but only people that appreciate content. By some standards, these are small numbers for an audience. For me, I would rather have a real impact on 10 people than 10,000 paid followers simply to make myself look good. I hope that you feel my heart on this post. I really appreciate you reading.ย 

To 2020, let’s make it a great one! V. R.ย
