A Thank You For 100 Followers

Hello everyone! Today is a very special day. Right around this time is when I first started to blog publicly. Before blogging publicly, I wrote on a little private blog which no one ever read except myself. It was about a year ago that I started blogging publicly, though.

So much has happened since then. I’ve met countless other amazing bloggers, gained followers and friends, and have been able to be a friend to others. I’ve gained countless amounts of support and kind comments from others who I love and cherish dearly.

One of the biggest things that has happened to me is gaining over 100 followers. In the course of around 7 months, I have gained a total of 121 followers. To some, 100 followers is a measly number. Some people have over 10K. But for me, this is such a special number – over 100 people have come to love me, my posts, and my blog. It fills me with such awe and gratitude.

My writing camp, TIWC, was my main celebration for 100 followers. But today I’m going to recognize and say a special thank you to my absolutely amazing followers.

You definitely more than deserve each and every single one of those followers – and so many more!

Your blog will always be one of my very favorites, and I get so excited every time I see one of your posts in my reader or one of your encouraging comments on my blog! 😄
    And aw, it’s such an honor to be in that list! That’s so sweet of you to mention my blog and I! I think happy fireworks bursted inside of me when I read my name up there with so many other absolutely fantabulous bloggers. 😄
    Once again, congratulations on over 100 followers! I know this is only the beginning – your blog is so epically awesome and it’s only going to grow from here!
