By Jove, I’ve done it.

I have surpassed the 200 follower mark.

While it may not have been a particularly lofty goal, it has been one that has long eluded me. The process was slow but boys oh boys, doesn’t it feel good.

I have never been a person who sets personal goals. I have never strived for anything in particular. Any sort of feat or accomplishment. And it is truly one of my only regrets in life. I wish I had tried harder to be good at something. I wish I had made more of an effort in school, or hobbies, or sports. I wish so badly that I hadn’t given up on so so many things that didn’t come natural to me. But, c’est la vie.

So, this is it. This is what I want to be good at. Writing. Story Telling, Blogging. Creating relevant material that people enjoy. I don’t know where it will lead or what it will become. And that’s ok.

Time to move the goalposts.

  1. Congratulations to you. And move the marker you should. But I was never a goal setter either. I firmly believe that whatever is supposed to happen, will. Therefore, whatever has happened, happened for a reason. My litmus test is ” am I satisfied with the results.” That is what drives me.

    1. Thank you! When you say “the results” does that mean what you’ve written? Or the engagement it created? I hope to one day get to a place where I am happy with something I’ve written. My problem is, I constantly doubt myself and everything I post. I use the stats as the litmus test. Hmmm. I feel another blog post inspiration coming on. Hahaha

      1. Before I ever punch Publish, I have mentally decided that what I wrote is what I wanted to say. Of course I want you and everyone else to like it too. But if you don’t, it isn’t necessarily because I didn’t do a good job. It may be that it just didn’t inspire you reading it as much as it did me writing it. And yes, I think there is a future blog post in here somewhere.

  2. Congrats!
    I think all bloggers say, “Oh, it doesn’t matter how many followers I have, I just want to write.” Then why are we always so happy to see those numbers jump?
    Validation. The fact that someone is taking the time to read our posts, comment and interact. The more you put yourself out there, visit and comment on other people’s blogs? The more they will on yours. It’s simple math.
