This is just a quick post to express my happiness at having reached two milestones this week.
Fist of all, I wrote, edited and posted my 20th short story. Whilst there are several wonderful writers on WordPress who have written more than my humble offering, I am brimming with pride over this achievement. When I began posting my stories back in June 2015, I had no idea how they would be received or whether or not anyone on the blogosphere would actually read them. It was a rather daunting feeling to begin posting on this platform without fully understanding where I would be going with it, or indeed whether I would continue posting at all.
Which brings me to the my second milestone: I have somehow accrued more than 50 followers to my blog. This is wonderful news, and I am simultaneously humbled and excited by it. It is incredibly affirming to have so many brilliant writers, poets and networking geniuses visiting my blog and taking the time to read through my offerings. I felt like these milestones deserved a little something, so I’ve given this blog a fresh lick of paint and I am planning on posting more regularly in the future.
I thank you all for your kind words when you comment, and I assure you that I will be writing more and with a huge smile on my face!
