I came to accept the fact that I will never have thousands of followers on this blog. This is not a self-deprecating statement, but a general fact that I am comfortable with. I started blogging when no one wanted to read some 20 year old virgin's short stories about jumping in mud puddles. I've never been a photographer* and I've never backpacked through another country. The only people who even knew my url were my mom and whoever she emailed it to. My blog has both changed a ton and has not changed at all. I still write about my day and my dreams and my past experiences like I'm talking to my mom and all of her friends. Like I said, I am not shooting for thousands of followers.
Which is why I am so... fascinated that I have 134. Did you know that I want to know who you are? Every time I get a new follower, I notice. I click on your profile and I go to the public blogs you have. I read them and I see what you are about. Every time. I really do.
And you know what? I love you guys. Seriously. I love that so many of you are here for such different reasons. Some of you have known me in the past and find my life tales entertaining. Others of you can relate to my new mom life. A large majority of you are friends and family who I'm convinced are only here to see pictures of Georgia. A shout-out to those of you who follow just so you can see my tiny projects every Monday.
Hello you followers!
Here is an official welcome.
*Of course, that's why I would love to win THIS camera... I'm sure it would help make this place prettier.
