It’s a milestone only I was waiting for: I now have 100 followers on this little blog, and though it’s really not a big deal to anyone else, it is to me.
Writing a blog is a weird little practice. If you’re to do it well, you must “put yourself out there” with every post. You risk being ridiculed, judged, perhaps made to feel like an idiot if a comment is particularly negative. You are telling people all about your life–the ups, the downs, the weird and the wonderful–and you risk them saying: Who cares? You bare your soul to strangers and hope they feel a connection. Yes, it’s a big risk.
But it’s a risk I’ll continue to take because:
1) I have 100 followers!!
2) I have yet to have a negative comment–which is risky to even say–but it’s all been such a positive experience!
So THANK YOU for taking time out of your busy lives to spend a minute or two with me, the BROAD who is no longer ABROAD, but is still on the adventure of LIFE…which continues to kick the shit out of her, but on her home turf.
