When I started this blog, I did so in order to have a project that might focus my writing. I wondered if I might have an audience out there, though I didn’t have expectations of how that might play out. I mainly hoped to write in a way that resonated with others.
I have often doubted whether or not I’ve done that. There are many times, still, where I’m not at all sure what I’m doing here. Yet I’ve wanted to continue, so I have, and today I reached a sweet milestone: 201 followers. (Hooray!)
That number feels modest in some lights; there are so many blogs that have thousands of people behind them. Yet 201 also feels delightful. There are people out there who want to know what comes next, and that’s a gift worth celebrating. Some of you I know well; many of you are strangers. Regardless, knowing you take the time to look at The Wandering Introvert fills me with absolute joy.
I may never set the world on fire with my words (though let’s hope there’s still time), but I’m happy to be writing anyway. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart and the tips of my typing fingers, for being here.
It really does mean more than I can say – so here’s hoping the little rock heart above does a bit of that for me. Interestingly, the beach in Nice was full of them.
