The past, present and future of this blog

With sixteen published posts on my website – M. Breznik’s Blog, this one being the seventeenth, I think it’s important to stop for a minute, and have a look from a different perspective. Instead of just writing any other post, I decided to take a step back, and maybe actually make a bit of a plan.

I know I’m not far enough to talk about history😅, but I think I can talk a little about how this blog came to be anyway. It all started last summer, just when I returned back from a surfing trip with friends, and immediately felt the need to return back to the beach, the waves, and everything that came with it. Short on money, I decided to relive the whole experience in the most cliche way possible, by writing a travel blog – Surfing Spain’s Basque Country And Why I Absolutely Loved It.

The writing wasn’t tough as I decided one full page of size-eleven Arial writing would get the job done (which is still my go-to rule for writing a post🙂). And when I had it all written, I decided to post in on WordPress – which I first encountered in Martin Verbič’s blog, who wrote about traveling to the USA a while back, probably before I even knew about blogging.

That was my first post, and it all just happened from there. I kept on writing, and the first post I actually shared with my friends was about me climbing Triglav, something I always wanted to do, and I thought it would be cool to share the experience. The next post which I didn’t share, but was, and still is, very popular, was about light pollution, and how it will continue to affect us in different ways. That was also the time I realized that the blog could actually be used for excerpts which are, in fact important.

One of the main reasons for starting and continuing to write this blog is because a ton of things interest me and I wanted to find which one actually interested me the most. We’re always told that we have to focus on a single one or just a few things if we want to be successful. I don’t believe that, and I think it’s always beneficial if you’re a jack of all trades (and not😂) a master at none.

And after this many posts, I’m starting to see a pattern of what I write about the most, and that’s what I would like to write about more. Just by looking at categories of the articles, there are a few prevailing groups – design, sports, lifestyle and a few others. Does that mean that I will focus on them only from now on? Honestly, I don’t think so – simply because I believe that the very best post is the one you want to write and not the one you have to.

If the mentioned categories continue to interest me, and if I won’t run out of stuff to talk about in those categories, then yes, I will continue to write about them. However, that shouldn’t keep me from occasionally touching on a completely different subject, which I think is great practice to keep the spirit going.

Another thing I want to focus on more is Bring Three, which is by far the most popular thing on my blog and continues to grow its audience. I never thought an interview series in English, where each guest brings three things (as the title suggests) would spark such interest, especially in Slovenia, which is relatively Slovenian-speaking😛. I’m eager to introduce new guests, new interests and occupations, and I’m looking forward to the future of the series.


With that, I think I’ve said all there was to say about the sheer ‘plan’ of my blog. Now to the technical stuff. As a student of multimedia, I think it’s important to know about how the information is passed from one point to another – in this case from me to anyone who happens to read this blog. I’m planning to work on that through summer holidays – the plan is to get a web domain and code my very own website theme, so I can use it as a basis for my blog.

I’m keen to see where this blog will take its directions, and I have to thank every single reader of it. Thanks again, and be sure to subscribe to the email list, if you haven’t yet😉.
