A Humble Thank You


Last week I got a notification that I had reached 500 followers. First off, I know it does not mean a lot. Not a lot has changed on my blog. I still average 10 to 12 likes per post that I do. It´s not like I am al of a sudden rolling or crushed by masses of people interacting with me, quite the contrary, but even that does not phase me. It was just a good feeling to have, even if it was temporary. Some how, this humble blog has reached 500 people. In some way those people have decided to click that like button. Not that I am going to click 500 people back though. I hardly have enough time to read the 10 people I follow´s posts. I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you to those that still stick around. That still send a comment from time to time. That still check in from time to time. I did not have a big speech prepared for today so what you have is what I got. It feels a bit odd as I hit 400 in Earlier This Year. That post was a lot better than this one. I´d suggest reading that one rather than this one…

Thank you

  1. Congrats!
    Like I wrote in my 4K post, milestones centered around numbers like this are important to being a blogger. First and foremost, it means you’ve stuck around and been active enough to attract the attention of that many people (even if the majority you never hear from again, sigh) Secondly, it IS an ego boost. And we bloggers need those to keep on going (some of us more than others I think *looking at myself here*). Thirdly, and most importantly, it is just FUN to celebrate things like this.

    Stick around long enough and I’m sure you’ll reach 1000 in no time 😀

  2. I know the feeling. My numbers on posts haven’t changed much since I hit 400. Now I’m over 600 and all I think the number is good for is it looking a lite bit more appealing for a publisher to grant me ARCs 😂
