Thank You – 1000 Followers

I sit staring at that follow counter wondering why it is even increasing (ever so slowly though). No, no I’m not fishing for praises it’s just that I hardly make an effort to get followers – other than write my content with the maximum genuineness possible. Genuineness – is that a word? You know how there are these words which are right but sound so wrong? Like you keep saying it trying to make it sound right but they sound even more wrong? I’ve digressed! Coming back to my point – 1000 followers! What even? How? It feels weird more than anything. I remember being genuinely excited a few months back about reaching 500 followers (on my birthday that too). I don’t feel that same excitement this time around and I think it is because of the maturity and understanding my blogging self has gained in the past few months. (I’m extremely humble πŸ˜›)

It obviously feels good to have more followers especially if you’re trying to make money from blogging, which I’m not, atleast till now. This is my safe space – a space where I can be my true, weird, anxiety ridden self and still find people who relate with my struggles. So I prefer to have people in my blogosphere who are genuine and relatable. And it is no surprise that most of these thousand followers are people following just to get a follow back.

I decided (a while back) that I won’t focus on the blog stats. That they are just a bunch of numbers that don’t determine whether my blog is well liked or not. Instead imma focus on the blogging friends that I make along this journey, people who genuinely like my content and support me. People who take out time to celebrate my tiny victories and support me in my misery. So this post is for you, my blogging family, for being so incredibly supportive that I’ve had a hard time cutting down on my blogging time and focusing on work (πŸ˜›). I love you all and I hope you’ll keep supporting my blog. Thank you for being an incredible second family to me. ❀
