A few days ago, I got this notification from WordPress that has taken me over two years to get to.
I have officially reached 100 followers for my blog after two years online! (I know my Follow Me field on my blog’s sidebar says 200-something, but there was something going on last year where someone was registering dozens upon dozens of fake email addresses that it seems that WordPress has since clamped down on, so it inflated my email followers count.)
You don’t realize how amazing this is for me. I’m not an influencer or a professional blogger in the slightest. I’m just an average woman writing about her own little corner of the planet and letting people in her life and her mind just a little at a time. I don’t blog for fame or glory or money, I blog for the sheer enjoyment of it and the enjoyment I get from my little community that’s formed because of it.
Some of you have been with me from the very beginning. Many of you came along a little later. Some of you followed because you liked my knitting, and others decided to follow because you liked my writing and my take on writing. And some of you may have the same taste in books that I do. Whatever your reason for following me, I just wanted to take the time to thank each and every one of you for your interest and dedication. It’s taken a long time for me to get to just 100 followers, and I appreciate each and every one of you.
For me, it’s never been about the quantity of followers, it’s always been about the quality. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, and here’s to continued quality blogging!
