Well not really. But it's a funny phrase for passing an iconic point on the numeric scale.
The point of this post, then?
Well, obviously it is to celebrate the passing of an iconic number. This number then being that my blog has just passed:
Not just the number itself, but the fact that it's growing. I never intended to write anything so interesting that it would warrant any more than two or three loyal friends who followed simply to be supportive. However these loyal followers have been so dedicated to reading what I share, commenting, and re-sharing, so much so, that they deserve a shout-out.
Thankyou so much, to all of you! For your loyalty in reading, for your thoughtfulness in commenting, your support in my writing, your fanning over my art, and for finding my rambling posts worthy enough to re-share them with your friends. Your support, your encouragement, and your kindness is so appreciated!
I would especially like to thank Jonathan Garner, Andrew Joyce, Aubrey Hansen, Lisa, and Grace Pennington for being such dedicated readers, critique-ers, commenters, encouragers, pokers, prodders, and re-sharers. It means a lot that you take the time to give your opinions on drafts, comment after reading (especially my absurdly long posts. o.O), and especially, re-share. I find re-sharing to be the highest honour you could give my writing. So thank you all, very much!
And last but not least! Thankyou to YOU! My readers! Even the quiet ones, the fact that what you saw around my blog was enough for you to hit "follow" really blesses me! I hope that my little internet realm has been able to repay your blessing, even in some small way.
I pray God continues to use my hands at the keyboard to encourage, uplift, and inspire you for many years to come. <><
