To all the existing and new readers, thank you for taking a chance on my work. I hope that at the very least, the words I found in all our silences made you smile.
I read because I want to see the world through new sets of eyes. I write because I cannot help it. Writing as a passion will always be a constant in my life even if I take how many breaks to regroup. Even if no one ever read my stories.
But you do, you always do.
Our attention span is at its lowest, we prefer highly visualized bit sized content so as to quickly get back to life’s distractions. But you’re here for shared human experiences and it means a lot.
You’ve expressed interest in reading my blog even on days I felt it wasn’t good enough.
You have subscribed to my blog to get notified and receive updates fast enough.
You have shared my articles to your following who have become my following too.
You have joined in the conversation every once in a while and taught me a thing or two.
You have left very kind words that urge me on to keep doing what I love most, this.
You have shared your own stories that mirror mine and supported me one read after another.
You have confirmed in many ways that I’m not alone here. That there’s someone on the other end of the line.
For this and more, I’m grateful and profoundly moved.
Even though I harp on the perks of consistency in content creation, I may have to take a mini-break after the blog challenge for some major changes in my life. I can’t wait to get back and write some more. When I do, see you on Tuesdays and Fridays.
I haven’t checked the analytics yet but I’d like to know the type of topics/stories you love(d) the most so I can find even better ways to tell them.
As you choose the voices to connect with online, keep shining your light to everyone else.
Love + Gratitude,
