Writer-Vation: Feeling Accomplished

This week has a week of accomplishments for my little corner of the blogosphere. I completed the BlogHer NaBloPoMo November challenge on Sunday. I hit 1500 views the other day. And today, I hit 100 followers.

I. Feel. Accomplished.

When I started writing this blog, I never really expected to accomplish such milestones because I write in order to maintain my sanity. Lawd knows I think and over analyze entirely too much about the little and frivolous aspects of my life. I spend almost every waking moment worrying my life away as my friend constantly tells me. It isn’t my intention. It’s just how I have always been. And blogging about my alcohol and coffee induced life sorta helps me calm the fuck down.

I’m always surprised when I have more than five or six views because like I said I didn’t really expect to have so many readers. I’m not trying to sound arrogant or unappreciative. I’m actually very humbled by the number of followers and views of my blog. I share my achievements with any and every person who will listen.

HA! Perhaps this means my writing isn’t as bad as I seem to perceive it. But then again we writers are their own worse critics.

I just… Well I mean… Thank you! Thank you for your support, for following me, for making my day when you hit the like button because it really helps to build my confidence as a writer. I’ll be honest when am i not with you guys… I’ve never really been very confident in my writing. I always knew I possessed a talent for writing but I wasn’t sure if I had enough talent to accomplish my dream of becoming a famous writer. And while I’m not as popular as some other bloggers, that’s okay because writing is a process that takes time and patience.

Besides, I still have much to learn about blogging, maintaining a website and honing in on my craft. Again, I appreciate you stopping by my corner of the blogosphere and following along with the craziness that is my world.

As always, thanks for reading…
