When I initially started this blog, I never thought it would get to where it has today. On June 13th, almost exactly 7 months after I first started it, I hit a major milestone which I would love to share with all of you – my readers, and my pillars of support – known and unknown to me =)
Milestone 1: I hit 1,000 views on my blog (I don’t even know who lucky 1,000th was, but I’m grateful!). That’s ONE THOUSAND VIEWS. For a writer, to know that there are people waiting to read my posts, is an amazing feeling. To know that in a little over half a year, there are a thousand views on what comes out of my heart and mind…that is another feeling altogether. I feel blessed that you think I am worth your time. Thank you for giving me this joy =)
Milestone 2: This may seem silly to most of you, or it may not. Regardless, I have to share this! My 1,000th visitor also gave me a wonderful gift…The knowledge that there was a search term that got me onto the first page on Google search! Without even trying!!! The search term was ‘top twenty something writers blog’ (it showed up on my statistics page), so I typed it into Google, and I was ecstatic at the result…because I wasn’t expecting it! First page on Google; that really means a lot. And I don’t even know how!
So that is the biggest thing to happen =) Thank you to all of you for affirming my faith in my writing, and making me believe it matters =) It inspired me to write some more, hence the Day 13 being published, and Day 14 is on its way too. Now that the semester is done, I’m hoping to have enough and more time to write more regularly. Again, to all of you – my 30 fellow blog enthusiasts, 90 Facebook likers, and 93 folk from the Twitter-verse – from the bottom of my heart, I truly appreciate the support =)
