From then to now.


It has been 4 years today that I went on my computer in my bedroom, and I created an account on a website called WordPress, as website for people to create and manage their own websites. What was mine? I called it If you Ask me. 4 Years later, and I write this on a laptop on the wordpress app. My how things change. But not this.

When I was 15, I wanted to create this blog as an online journal, and having a fascination of owning my own website since I was 8 years old, I made this, and have stuck with it. I have been blogging for 4 years now, and things really are different. When I started, I was a student in High School, studying for GCSE’s. My first post promised that I would discuss ‘issues involving my life, sharing opinion on current affairs and discussing things in general’. I like to think I have delivered on that, and then some. I have tried to discuss topics that interest my readers and topics of interest to me.

I have a small, but devoted following on the blog, and for that I am thankful for that. I enjoy writing, and I like to think people enjoy what I write. Even the sadder posts I write.

I see this blog continuing for as long as I feel I can write on it. Or until the website dies. One of the two. All I will say is thank you for reading, and please keep reading. If you’ve been here since 2012, or came here today, then please keep reading. Thank you.

  • Hi Ben, I was wondering what your thoughts on ghosts where – could you possibly do a post on it some day?

    There are plenty of instances of them – is your opinion that they are all faked or is there some belief there?
