So I’ve finally done it. After blogging for almost nine months, I’ve made it to 1,000 views. Well, I’m technically over 1,000 views now, but you get the point.

Wow, I still can’t believe it. But in a good way.

I’m happy to see that so many people are checking out my blog. That so many people like my blog and want to read it.

I started my blog over the summer in July. I started my blog as a way to continue writing after graduating from college to gain writing experience and as a way to improve my writing skills. I also wanted to meet other bloggers whose blogs were so inspiring that I would constantly feel the need to always write and become a better blogger.

Over the course of the almost nine months I’ve been on WordPress, I feel like I’ve found out a lot about my writing as well as myself. I’ve also discovered how much I enjoy keeping Vook: Books + Video Games up, finding the need to write almost every day like I used to when I was younger. I’ve discovered I love blogging and want it to become a big part of my life, possibly a big part of my career.

And I owe it all to my viewers. While I know I’m not the most active blogger on WordPress, I try the best I can to engage myself with other bloggers, whether that’s reading blog posts and leaving a friendly comment or participating in writing challenges like the two flash fiction challenges I’ve recently done and last year’s National Novel Writing Month.

So thank you. To everyone who read my blog posts, liked them, shared them with friends, etc. I owe getting over 1,000 views to you. Without my readers, I feel as if I couldn’t have gotten quite so far. So thank you for taking an interest in my blog. I look forward to seeing how much farther my blog goes and can’t wait to see what other opportunities in my blogging life await me.
