My Thanks: 1,000 Times Over
I came home from church on Sunday to find that some more Followers had signed up here, putting me just over the 1000 mark.
I'm being truly honest when I say I never really expected to reach this point. To some of you, 1000 Followers is small beans...to others of you, it's a goal you might like to shoot for.
When I started this blog, an outlet for my thoughts and creativity, I didn't really think anyone would bother to read it. My own mother wouldn't even read it, for crying out loud. (To be fair, she barely knows how to access her email, but still.)
I kept writing.
A few loyal friends would stop in to comment, and very. very slowly, I saw the faces in that little box on my sidebar multiply.
Some wonderful bloggers with larger sites and a lot more talent have been kind enough to feature my blog or link to me from time to time, and I know I owe a lot of the blog's growth over the last year or so to them.
That 1000 of you would click that little blue "Follow" button is both humbling and gratifying.
If my blog, which does not fit into any particular niche at all, can grow, so can yours! My blog isn't the most creative; it isn't the funniest; I'm not a designer; and I'm not a photographer. Consistent posts, good networking, linking back to others, and kind features from good blogging friends have been the key to my growth.
I am so grateful to those of you who have Linked to, Tweeted, Facebooked, Commented, and-yes-Followed me. Your support means a lot to me, and I wish I could give you all a hug. Or a high five if you're not a huggy person.
I hope I can keep entertaining you with my blog "about nothing."
