I wrote something with more words.
This week I hit some very pleasing milestones in my blogging career. Baby steps down the long road of blogging glory! I received my 500th like, and my 100th follower got on board. I am very grateful for both of these things. Thank you to my readers, and the first 100 to have joined me on this journey down the uncertain path that is the writing life. It has been a genuine pleasure to meet you, and to share my experiences so far.
I blogged erratically over a few years until buckling down to some discipline last September, and am now discovering the joys of persisting, and of actually using the wordpress reader to keep up with other people’s output! (Sorry for not embracing it sooner, hahaha!)
This is my corner of the sky, I’m glad to share it with you. I intend to persist a while yet, Mondays and Thursdays, and occasionally share my quiet satisfaction as the mile markers add up.
Thank you all once again.

I blogged on another site first and it was different than this one. So when I began re years ago it took a great deal of time to be rid of the way the old site worked, with private messaging and friends acquired, more like a social network. It took awhile to get used to the ways if interacting and discovering writers etc.
sometimes I’m terrible at blogging, lol, inconsistent and unable to be attentive to others. Sometimes I’m not so bad 🙂
I’ve made it part of my week, which helped me massively with consistent posting, and mostly dream up topics in advance – though sometimes things just pop up! (The more words I referenced above was a blog post that turned into a treatise on persistence. I decided nobody needed to read that as a preamble to me saying thanks for the reads!) I’ve enjoyed your blog! I find that the hardest part of blogging is keeping up with what everyone else is doing – those crazy daily bloggers, how do they do it?!!
Discipline is tough.. Still working on it myself (a so-called monthly blogger) 🙂
But finding our own rhythm sure is good. So, congrats! 🍸
Thanks! Blogging twice a week is me at maximum capacity, for sure!
