Happy Anniversary, Halloween Haiku!

One year ago, I blogged my first post, along with my first haiku poem. I cannot believe it’s already been a year!

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started a year-around Halloween blog. At first, I was just scared to share my haiku and poetry. What if nobody likes it? What if nobody understands it? Then, I worried about whether I’d run outta poems or things to blog about. What if I don’t find other people who also enjoy celebrating Halloween all year long? Well, one year later and it’s been quite the opposite. I’m more creative and inspired than I have ever been, and the community has been accepting and supportive of Halloween Haiku since day one.

Blogging has compelled me to share my writings. I’ve become more disciplined and selfish with my writing time, allowing me more time to create longer works, works which I hope to someday soon share with the world. In addition to having original content, I’m learning what it takes to run a successful blog. This year, I’ll be concentrating on building Halloween Haiku’s presence up on social media and engaging the audience. So, with that news, today, I’m unveiling a new site page called Halloween Memories. I want to hear from you. I want to hear your favorite Halloween memories. Or, you can just leave a comment and let us know what you love best about Halloween.

I want to thank everyone for your support and coming here to celebrate Halloween and all things spooky, all year long. Sharing what makes Halloween special with each other helps the world seems less dark and scary.
