I’ve been not so patiently awaiting the arrival of my 100th Blog Follower over the last few days. I’m not really sure why, but when I saw it was hovering around 97 I got a little spark of inspiration. I felt the same way when I got my first follower, and first comment as well. It’s all exciting and new. Technically speaking sometime around 10 pm on Valentines Day I received my 100th follower.
So you’re probably asking yourself…Why is she still waiting then?
Well, one of my followers is a close personal friend of mine, outside of the blogging world. Every other person, all 99 of you, are strangers, yet becoming friends of the written word.
I know it seems maybe naive to say, but it is really surreal to see the number climb. Granted, it’s nowhere near as many followers as some other blogs have, and that’s ok. I’m slowly building my voice, and with each post more people will hopefully get the chance to read it and maybe even enjoy what they read.
But I wanted to take a moment to thank you all so very much. Each and every one of you, from 1-101 (+) I appreciate all the likes, comments, shares, tweets, retweets, reblogs, and constructive criticism.
It is all welcomed and humbling.
I’m guessing WordPress is waiting on the 101st follower as well. I recently discovered the “Awards” section of my blog, didn’t even know this existed. But no badge yet, so we will see. And even though I’m scribing this post with the 100th follower I wont post it until I reach that 101st!!
And then this happened! At almost 3:30 am I got that notice!
How cool is that? During last nights storm my phone was going off with random notifications, and this was one of them. Waking this morning and seeing the WP notice with the +100 follow tally was pretty sweet too.
Who knows, maybe I’m naive, but it’s all still very surreal to me. People I don’t know, want to read what I have to say.
My Random Musings and Wanderlust!
I honestly can’t thank you all enough ❤
