I’m all for celebrating milestones. In blogging, in business, in life, damn it if you’ve done something you’re proud of, reached a goal or milestone then you should sure as hell celebrate that – however big or small. I’ve done that since I started blogging and 4 years down the line, I don’t plan on stopping. So… today I would like to celebrate hitting 2,500 unique blog followers. Eeeeek! That may seem like a miniscule number to some, a huge number to others; we’re all on different paths and different points in our blogging “careers” but I definitely believe that we should celebrate our own and other people’s achievements. And for me, hitting 2.5k blog followers is an achievement. Especially after so mny blogging breaks and periods of not knowing whether I even wanted to continue blogging.
This March -slash- April -slash- May, I would have been blogging for 4 years, (I can’t remember exactly what month I started; I seemed to think it was March but WordPress tells me it’s May but whatever) so I won’t be doing any giveaways with this post, as I normally would, because I’d like to wait until my 4th blog anniversary and go completely and utterly overboard then but for me, hitting 2,000 unique blog followers (I say unique blog followers because that is just including WordPress reader followers, email followers and bloglovin followers – it doesn’t count twitter and Facebook) is somewhat of a milestone and I think it warrants a little blog post, mostly just to say a big huge thank you to everyone who follows and reads my blog.
Last month, Jenny in Neverland was shortlisted for Blog of the Year at the Love Stories awards. My best friend popped up on Facebook chat one morning and asked if I’d seen and I had absolutely no idea what she was talking about. An hour later, I was still convinced that there was some sort of mistake. And that’s not me being modest, heck if I wasn’t surprised, I wouldn’t have acted it but out of all the incredible book bloggers out there, why on Earth was I shortlisted?
On what crazy ass planet am I sitting here writing this post? In case you hadn’t guessed from the title, my little blog has reached one thousand unique WordPress followers. A thousand of you crazy people are following me and my *sometimes ridiculous* ramblings; why you’d want to, I’ll never know but you are and I could never ever thank you enough.
