Just the other day I was shown this notification by WordPress. Wowzers, people! I thank all 500 of you for following me through the madness that is my blog. It’s an unexpected, but wonderful, a milestone in terms of blogging. I know blogging shouldn’t be and isn’t all about the numbers, but sometimes it boosts the old ego to have a reminder that the blog is doing well! However, I do feel like this is a bit of a similar post to my buddy-reader Daves 500 milestone post that he put out the other day!
My blog is an ever-shifting space that reflects my moods and whims; it’s had so many incarnations over the 8 years that I have been blogging on WordPress and looking through my Archives I can see the changes in direction – it’s an evolution that has adapted and grown with me and long may that continue! I’m forever faffing with how it looks and how I feel my current mindset should be reflected in my posts and content, so I am overwhelmed that so many people have come along for the journey and have stuck throughout the tsunami-like waves of my mind as it’s blurted out here!
I am honoured and encouraged to keep at it – which has come at the perfect time because things have been taking a bit of a ‘dip’ on the blogging front lately and I was beginning to question ‘Is this thing dead?’
