Hey guys! Welcome back. Today is a very special day because we have reached 500 followers!!! I have been working towards this for so long. This time last year I had 100-200 followers and I am just as grateful now as I was then. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank every person who has followed me in the past year and a half. It’s been an incredible journey and I just love you all so much. Thank you for coming back and reading my posts and interacting with me. It has been such an amazing experience and I couldn’t have done this without you.

So in terms of my biggest achievement this year, I would say it is finding my voice. I’m still working on it, but I took huge leaps of faith this year and now I am reaping the rewards. I started this blog just wanting to write. I never thought I would find 500 different people to like it enough to follow it. But I am so glad it happened. I have always had problems with telling people what I thought, but this blog allows me to use my talents in a safe place.

So I think finding an outlet and devoting time to progressing this project has been a huge achievement. Hopefully 2019 can bring me more followers and we can all continue to grow together. 500 followers is a huge milestone and I seriously could not be more thankful. I hope you love it enough to stick around and share it with your friends!
