Well, well, well. Look who’s got 1500 followers! I mean, it happened a few days back, and I kept meaning to write a thank you/celebration post, but I put it off cause I had other posts I was working on. But I knew if I kept putting it off, I’d get to it in a month, so I’m sitting down now and writing this.
Thank you so much to everyone who engages with me and my weird little blog. I keep calling it little, but it has grown so much more than I could have imagined. I’ve been active on my blog since March (even though I made it last July), so Life of Angela has only been around for 7 months really. I still get surprised each time I hit a new milestone, and I’m touched that people like what I’m writing (also a lot of random company/business blogs for whatever reason).
When I started blogging in March, I wrote a tiny little intro post. I didn’t want to dive in with my (many) pre-planned travel posts, I wanted to introduce myself first. I didn’t expect it to get noticed, but it did. It got like 4 likes. 4!! I know that seems small, but it was a lot more than I expected…which was zero. Then after a few weeks, my posts got to 10 likes and I just lost my mind all over again. Imagine how I felt when I got a notification that someone actually now follows my blog. I still feel that way now. I may not screech each time I get a follow or a like, but I do bounce around in my seat and sometimes high five myself (is that a little sad..nah).
My blog has continued to grow more than I could have expected. It’s also taught me a lot about skills that I haven’t pursued in years, as I now have a platform to share my thoughts and experiences on these. It’s made me feel more sociable and connected with the world. I’m so glad I started blogging 🙂
Here’s a little doodle I tried to do, expect a Pinspiration post on doodles at some point.
Thanks for 1500 all!
