Thank You For Supporting My Blog! | My First 40 Days of Blogging

It’s been exactly 40 days since I started this little blog, and as I’ve neglected to provide you with either blog posts I’ve promised you today (more on that later), I’ve decided to write this little thank you post to all of you that read my blog. I started this blog on a whim. I’ve always had the desire to write a blog, but never thought anyone would read it, or that I would even be able to create any sort of content that I would find to be adequate enough to post online. After a few friends gave me the courage to do so (one of them has a FANTASTIC blog you can read here, I sometimes just sit and read some of his older posts for fun, they are perfectly written and so easy to connect with; I love it), I jumped on WordPress at 3 in the morning and threw myselfย straight into this crazy blogging world.

I feel like I was lucky in that I had no idea, and still have no idea, what sort of traffic or “stats” a blog would normally get in it’s infancy. I still have no idea if my little blog is doing well in those aspects or not, but its not about that for me, not yet anyway. At the moment, I’m still just loving writing and putting my thoughts out for people to read. It has been such an incredible outlet for me so far and all the comments I have received have been more lovely than I can describe. I’m waffling at this point, but I suppose that’s just what I do. I ramble when I have too much to say with no idea how to say it. I guess I’m just trying to say thank you. Thank you to all the people that have viewed my blog, liked my posts, commented on my posts, and followed me. It truly means the world and I appreciate each and everyone of you that are coming along with me on this blogging adventure.

So far, my stats for my past 40 days of blogging are as follows:

I've been visited by people from 63 different countries, or more by the time you're reading this, and I find that absolutely astonishing and beautiful.

All the visitors, views, likes, comments; everything. It all blows my mind. I find it incredible that this many people have taken the time to click on my little blog. Thank you to all that have. <3

This is a snippet of the bottom of my blog's homepage, where you can see that there are now 786 people following my blog. To me, that number is incredible. I am speechless that in only 40 days this many people have found my blog and enjoyed my writing or content enough to follow me. This number may be small or insignificant compared to what other blogs have or do in their first few months, I truly have no idea, but for me, this is a huge number and I am appreciative of every single one of you following and viewing my blog. You're all brilliant people.

I never really believed that anyone would read what I have to say, or that anyone would ever want more, but the amount of “never stop blogging” comments that I have gotten from some of you makes me feel so incredible and shows me that there are people out there that really do want to read exactly what I want to write.

I won’t keep going on and on here about this, because there’s only so much that can be said, but the main point here is simply thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my weird little heart, and I hope you enjoy whatever I decide to write about in the future.

Now, I do owe you an explanation as to why my 30 Day Writing Challenge and my Sleepy Sunday blog posts haven’t gone up today. There is one simple yet complex reason for my absence today, and that is Food Poisoning. Note to all reading this: If a food truck at a festival downtown in your city looks questionable, DON’T ORDER FROM IT. No matter how hungry you are. That’s what put me in this hell I’m in; a dodgy chicken and black bean burrito from a dodgy food truck at an otherwise lovely festival called Boulevardia here in downtown Kansas City. One mistake and I’ve been on my deathbed (I’m over-dramatic by nature, can you tell?) all day, wishing the worst upon whatever health inspector failed to shut that food truck down before it made it’s way to me with its poisonous food. So that my friends, is the reason that I have failed to write out my usual posts for you today. I decided to write this little one showing my appreciation for you, as it has only taken about 10 minutes and minimal effort. I am hoping beyond hope that this mess ends tomorrow, and if it does, I will most certainly get back to my normal schedule. I hope you understand, I know that any of you that have experienced food poisoning will most definitely understand, and I look forward to feeling like a human being again and getting back to writing thoughtful posts for this little blog baby of mine.

Once again, thank you endlessly for your support of this blog and your all around support of me personally. I don’t even know how I could thank you for the loveliness that you all have shown me here in these past 40 days. Here’s to the next 40 days and many more to come.

I hope youโ€™re doing well, where ever you are in the world, and I wish you all the best.

    1. I don’t promote or share it anywhere. Actually, I don’t even share it with family or on my personal social media or anything. I’ve shared it with a few friends, but other than that any and all views or follows come from here on WordPress. I don’t really know what I’m doing when it comes to blogging, I just write stuff that I want to write about, add some tags to it, and post it. That’s really it. I do read and like a lot of posts that other people write here, and a lot of people come check my blog out from that, so maybe that’s something that has helped.

  1. I wish I could have your numbers, im like you in the respect that I write what I want to write and I have only tried to promote myself through twitter (no success), I think part of the reason is because you have a pretty face whereas I’m anonymous and hide behind a crisp packet lol.

    1. Haha well I like to think it’s about my writing and not my “pretty face” (thanks for the compliment by the way) but I’m sure having a face to put with the name does help. Lol. I still have no idea if my numbers are good or what have you, I really am an infant in the blogging world, but I am appreciative that so many people are coming here and interacting with me. ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t even have a twitter to try and promote myself through haha. And I don’t post about my blog on any of my personal social media because I don’t like the idea of family and certain friends reading it haha. For some reason strangers reading my personal thoughts feels much better to me.

      1. It’s a release, but also kind of exciting, for me its like I don’t want to get found out but eventually something will happen where I either slip up or someone in my life by chance works out it is me lol.

      2. I feel like you’re able to be extra free and extra candid with what you post, since there’s no face to the name. People don’t really know who you are, you could be my neighbor down the street for all I know. I think that’s really cool.

    1. Haha that’s okay, I didn’t take it badly or anything. Well it’s nice to see that someone likes the awkward picture more than the others, I appreciate compliments on the odd photos more than the “nice” ones. ๐Ÿ™‚ So thank you haha.

  2. Your stats have upstaged mine! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Feel better. I’ve always loved food trucks, but I guess we’ve all got to be careful…

    1. Well I’m not sure how! ๐Ÿ™‚
      And food trucks can be fantastic, I’m hoping this doesn’t put me off for too long. Though I may be extra picky about which ones I choose to indulge in from now on haha.

    1. Thank you! I suppose in theory this little blog challenge I’m doing has helped, but I mean, I’ve kinda failed at it, so it may not have helped as much as it could have. I missed a full week of blogging and things because my internet was down, so that week has horrible stats, but other than that, I really don’t know what has helped to boost anything. I mean, until I posted this, I didn’t even know my stats WERE good, haha.
      I’m feeling a bit better today, thank you! I had no idea what food poisoning was like until now. It is the worst. I hope I never have to experience it ever again lol.
