I was secretly hoping that I would make it to 100 followers by the end of 2015. And I did (yesterday)! I know you don’t always comment but I know you read my posts and I really appreciate that in itself. (Please get yourself a cup of tea; this may be a long post).
When I started this blog, I started it because writing is one of my absolute favourite things to do. I wanted to share and I didn’t want my passion for writing to wilt. I didn’t want that passion to collect dust just because I’m no longer studying (even though I believe we’re always studying, even if it’s not under a college, school or university, but that’s another story). I always used to read blogs and I wanted one for myself. However, I kind of made a rubbish Tumblr account and put off getting a ‘proper’ blog for almost a year. Comparison I guess. Then I did it. And even when my blog design was diabolical, I started seeing I was getting followers. ‘Getting followers’ is good because it means someone out there likes reading what you have to say/likes the way you write. It becomes not good, when you begin to think it symbolises what you’re worth. It doesn’t. Stats don’t tell you who you are. Remember that. Having 100 is great, but how many followers I have is not what makes me want to make new posts. Writing is just something that I love. But thanks for joining me! I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t love reading and writing. Sometimes I would use it as a way of escape, and it’s a part of me.
If you’re reading this and you’re thinking about creating a blog. Just do it!
Once again, to all of you, THANK YOU. Oh, one more thing – Happy New Year!
