In which I take a moment to say thanks.
I was going to do something really awesome when I hit 100 follows, but I couldn’t think of anything awesome to do. (I think one must possess awesomeness as a quality in order to do awesome things.) And now I’m a bit past that mark, and I did absolutely nothing.
But I still want to tell you guys how much I appreciate you! So get ready for soppiness and sentiment. Soppiness and sentiment are not my style, but I need to get over that and tell people how I feel. Or whatever. So here we go.
I started this blog fully expecting not to have any readers. I was banking on maybe one view a day—but maybe that was too much to ask. I didn’t dare think of the possibility of a follower.
I remember the day I hit ten followers, which was ten followers more than I ever expected to have. Those first ten were:
- Respectable Married Woman
- The Freelancer
- Anushka H.
But the crazy part is all of them are still following me.
And since then I just kept getting more and more awesome people showing up and sticking around and paying attention to what I post and making insightful comments and…gah! You guys! You are seriously the best!
I don’t know where you come from or why you stayed but you truly make blogging such an enjoyable experience for me! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I would honestly like to list all of you and what I love about having each one of you, personally, as my followers. But you guys know me by now. I’m lazy. I’m so, so lazy. And so just know that I am really grateful to have you guys here and I hope you haven’t lived to regret the day you hit follow. (Because that would be incredibly silly of you—the unfollow button is right over there. No reason you should live with regrets when you can literally unfollow as easily as you followed. Silly!)
Yeah see, I’m not that good at expressing this type of thing, but I tried. You guys are the absolute best, and thank you thank you thank you!
