200 Followers – Thank You

Posted by


Thank you so much!!


I cannot express my gratitude to all of you with enough enthusiasm to really describe how much this landmark means to me. So, all I can really do is say Thank You, do a couple handstands, cartwheels, and somersaults – good thing for me you can’t see or hear the latter.

When I started this blog I had no idea where it would lead. I had a much different picture of the process when I started for sure. I am not completely certain that when I started I knew fully where this was headed at all really.

I’ve learned a lot from my year of blogging – Read that here.  In addition to the things I have learned from the process, I have gained and learned a lot about many different people and places. I think blogging is as much about the relationships you make with different people and what you take away from those encounters. I am looking forward to so much more.

Uncertain how best to celebrate reaching 200 Followers, I’ll simply leave it at Thank you and throw in some of my favorite posts in case others may have missed those.

  1. Congratulations! I remember how excited I was when I reached that milestone. The friendships formed via blogging has been the nicest surprise for me. Here’s to the next 200 🥂

    1. I can’t imagine reaching 400, but I didn’t think I would even get 200. So, I’ll keep chugging along and with a little luck it will happen. Thanks for stopping by and thanks for reading 🙏🏻
