I got a hundred followers on my blog this week!
It’s been an exceptionally active week for me on WordPress. I wrote a post analysing a story that was relevant to a class I take, so I shared that link and got a lot of views through it. I wrote more regularly, having a lot of ideas and actually taking out time to write about them because (owing to exams) I don’t currently have daily college, and so I have a lot more time to procrastinate. I wrote about something that I feel strongly about, and liked it enough that I shared the link on my personal Facebook account (something I don’t do very often). I linked to a few Daily Post prompts, and I shared my latest links on the Community Pool, which is definitely my favourite platform to meet new bloggers. And all this effort certainly paid off!
I must admit, sometimes I get overly encouraged/discouraged by the number of views I get on WordPress, which will cause me to either put in a lot more effort to keep up the good stats of the week, or cause me to be discouraged and lose my enthusiasm briefly. Combined with all the other things that keep me busy, this definitely means that I’m not the most regular blogger. I have incredibly active months, and very inactive months. And I’ve gradually grown to acknowledge that that’s alright. It’s okay, because I’m still writing when I have something to say. It’s okay, because I don’t really have any set expectations to meet. And it’s okay, because as I balance this blog with the rest of my work, I’m always coming back sooner or later. And I will continue to write, and I will continue to grow.
Thank you all, if you’re following me, so so very much. It means a lot to me to know that so many people from different places actually care to read the thoughts of one bored 20 year old living in India. Thank you, if you’ve left likes and comments, because they truly brighten my day. And while it probably didn’t mean anything special to you, thanks especially to the 6 people who have followed me since Tuesday, pushing me over this 100 mark milestone. It pushes me to grow, and I appreciate you very much.
