I started this blog a year ago. My first post was April 9 ,2013. I would blog religiously for a week or so then disappear for a little bit. I have never been one to blog on a regular schedule like a good blogger should. I always let life get in the way. I enjoy blogging so much and it has been great to be able to blog so much lately. I am hoping to keep on a regular schedule now even when I do find another job.
Today I finally reached 100 followers. I know for some of you that have hundreds of followers think I am crazy, but I got excited when I just had 50. I have never had so many followers on anything I have ever done. This feels like my first big hurdle and it’s only going to get better from here.
Now, out of the 100 followers I don’t know how many actually read my blogs anymore. Like I said, I started this blog a year ago and have been blogging on and off. I don’t have a comment on every blog and the comments that I do have are few and far between, but I don’t care. I love the few that I do reach with my post and I love the ones who enjoy reading my random awkwardness.
I started a blog a long time ago for the simple fact of having my thoughts out there because they were killing me. I had to share the darkness that had settled deep in my core and I didn’t want to worry the people around me. I didn’t start blogging so I could complain to everyone or even to get sympathy from someone. I started blogging just so I could connect to others who were going through the same thing as me. I wanted a platform that my parents wouldn’t see. A platform my real life friends couldn’t see. I had no one else to tell my problems to and my diary just wasn’t making the cut anymore.
I had once created a blog just to post while I was at work.
Now my blog has become a place to share the things that I love and just have a place for my thoughts. I am trying to get my name out to the world so that I have something to back up my writing when I start looking for an agent. I love feedback and random comments. I just love the community that comes with the blogging world.
So thank you to those that follow me. Thank you even more if you actually read and enjoy my blogs.
