Okay, I am feeling really strange right now. I would firstly like to sincerely thank you all for 400 followers. When I began this blog, I never expected to reach a number anywhere near that amount. This blog is so important to me and it makes me happy everyday and I know that I am so lucky to have access to such an incredible platform, which has honestly changed my life for the better. The Internet has helped me during many points in my life and I have lived many lives on it and met many amazing people. And I know just like the others, this blog is such an important part of my childhood and I know it’s going to help me grow into the person I want to be. My friends on here, and yes I’m talking about you, are just another example of why I love the Internet. The kindest most wonderful people seem to come together on this platform and the fact that we can all meet on this little blog, it astounds me. This blog is like a cosy cottage with expandable walls and it’s fitting more and more lovely people inside it everyday.
I realize how much I have changed since I began blogging. My writing has improved so so much and expressing my views on matters such as feminism have really helped me develop my personal ethics. It’s not just me who’s changed either, WordPress has too. I am so happy to see wonderful, new talent on my reader and it really doesn’t feel like I have been writing on here for six months. I am making new, amazing friends each and every day, but unfortunately some of my old blogging friends have left recently and that has made me more subdued in my 400 follower celebrations. Only yesterday, through Elm, did I discover that Ambi, Dziey and ATeenagedDiaryOnline had all left WordPress and I felt so terrible about not saying goodbye that I actually cried. The fact that I could have been there for them, could have told them how much I honestly loved them before they went, makes me so upset. I respect their decision to leave, but I will miss them all so much and I hope that they knew that without me telling them. Those three bloggers are all coincidently some of my closest friends on WordPress. And even though I’m celebrating 400 followers, I thought it was worth recognizing all they have done for the community (because it’s a hell of a lot more than I’ve done)
I would just like to say once more thank you all for 400 followers. I would just like to tell you all how much it means that you take time out of your day to read my posts. I never dreamed that that would happen.
Thank you so much for reading,
(also I’ve started crying again because I’ve just been reading my 200 followers post (yes I stalk my own blog sometimes) and all the people that have left were congratulation me. All the emotions)
