How Humbling -100 Bloggers Following Me!

When I started this blog, I thought 100 people, whom I did not know, reading my blog would be quite amazing! And now that I have reached 100 followers, I have found that I am in awe that there are 100 people, whom I know only through this medium, that have read my words and feel that they are worth reading again, and again.  That truly amazes me and astounds me.

I would assume that each and every blogger wishes that they had thousands of other bloggers reading their words every time they hit the publish button, and in a sense I would be no different.  I would, however, rather have the people who do read my blog really enjoy it and have it mean something to them.

I have been thinking I need to publish more frequently and bring my “numbers” up.  Yet, while many bloggers whom I have great respect for, can do this very well, I do not feel that I would be able to blog everyday and have something that I really wanted to say.  So I blog much less frequently.  Not that there aren’t thoughts flying around in my head all the time, that is a given!  And, I am fairly opinionated, even though I have learned to keep a lot of them to myself as I have gotten older.  Or, maybe I am getting better at seeing both sides of a situation, or more, and less able to find “the right” one.  In any case, I am not sure I could be an everyday blogger.

I am sure that I have reached a milestone today! One hundred followers whom I did not know prior to starting this blog, have found my words worth reading.  How humbling and inspiring!  Thank you to each and every one of you!

    Do it because you love it, not because you are looking for more followers. I am grateful for each and every person that stops by to look at my blog and I enjoy reading others blogs as it opens my mind to new ideas. 🙂

      I absolutely agree! I have found so many new ideas and new ways of thinking about things since I have begun to explore the vast blogging world! The only problem I have with it…I never get anything else done! I just want to sit and read blogs all day…not really such a bad “problem!” 😉 Thanks for being a reader/follower of mine!

    Happy for you, Phyl. It’s a cool milestone. =) You write from a genuine place and you should have as many readers possible. Glad you also got to say your piece on the war and the U.S. Not every single thing we post will strike a note with every single reader. ‘S partly why I vary it.

      Thank you Diane, your feedback is important to me. I can feel it comes from your heart and that is the greatest gift I could receive. And yes, I will continue to vary it, as I do not want a blog that is a diatribe about a single thing; especially one as negative as war. There needs to be more positives put into the universe! Peace and Hugs, Phyl

    Congratulations, Phyl! I well remember how that felt…when I started, I figured maybe 50 people who loved me would sign on because they felt they had to. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would get to 100. Your thoughtful writing draws your readers back over and over. Keep it up! – Fawn

    Congrats! A job well done. Blogging can be cathartic. There is an incredible freedom that comes from the ability to set our stories and experiences free. For me, blogging is like opening the steam vent in a pressure cooker of unspoken words.

      What an apt description “blogging is like opening the steam vent in a pressure cooker of unspoken words.” And it reminds me of those endless hours sitting and watching the pressure cooker when I was a kid, while wishing I could be off writing or reading. It was what I wanted to do even then! Thanks, Pat!
