It’s been a whirlwind couple of weeks for my little blog. Last week I surpassed 1000 likes; this week I hit 100 posts; a couple of days ago I reached 300 followers and to top it all off, I’ve been nominated for two awards, one courtesy of Hayley Knighten and the other from Susanne Leist.
First off, Hayley is an awesome blogger. Her personality leaps off her posts and she is a very active member of the writing community. The long and short of it is, if you aren’t yet following her blog, I definitely think you should be. As for Susanne, I only discovered her work fairly recently but I’m very glad I did. Her writing style is both approachable and intriguing; her novel, The Dead Game, is already on my to-read list.
Rather than make separate posts to mark each of these milestones in my blogging life, I thought I would simply make this short post to essentially say a massive thank you. To get to discover interesting readers and writers alike – each with their own unique perspective to offer – is a joy, but to share my own poetry, fiction, ideas and whatnot for other people to engage with is a dream and it’s flattering and exciting to know there are people out there who are interested in my ramblings.
Here’s to the next 100 posts; I hope you’ll continue along for the ride and with any luck, we’ll pick up a few more members for this lovely, supportive little group along the way. Cheers!
