Hm. 100 followers. 100 living souls that take the time and energy to read my pathetic posts. Wow.
I can barely put to words how grateful I am for all of you, each and every darn one of you followers, for allowing my tiny blog to take some space on your dashboard.
Frankly, when I started this blog I never intended to have anyone actually read it, but I saw my follower count increase, quite sluggishly to be honest, and I realised that if someone’s going to read my shit, it better be good shit, so I started taking extra care of my work, trying as much as I can to make my posts readable until the very end. I realise some of my posts are rather long and might be boring or hard to read through for some of you, but I’m no writer. I mean, I want to be some day, but right now, I’m just a dysfunctional teenager who needs somewhere to rant. As mentioned on my About page, “this blog shall continue to be my escape and virtual shrink.”
When I say shrink, I do mean it. Not literally, obviously, but it has played the role of a shrink. Reading people’s feedback and advice in the comments on my posts truly does make me feel better. As I said, the mere fact that someone has cared enough to drop by and chuck me a like or possibly leave a nice comment makes my day.
And I thought I’d give a special thanks, once again, to Opinionated Man for exponentially boosting my stats and getting my blog more recognition.
I’ve gained 24 new followers, and still counting, over the last couple of days since OM reblogged one of my posts, so it’s safe to say I wouldn’t have gotten that much traffic if it weren’t for his push.
Once more, thank you, thank you, thank you. It is worth noting that I value all of my followers. Behind that number on my computer screen are real people with thoughts and feelings that I will always respect and acknowledge.
