I’m so happy. You have no idea. I never thought I would be able to amass so many followers in 3 years. It’s been an amazing journey. I’ve struggled and evolved. I have shared many things with you that most people don’t know. I have received amazing comments from people. I have read posts that I could relate to and that helped me.
I am not the most consistent lately but I will posting often from now on. We need a healthy community more than ever and to stay together (in isolation). I want to empower people, see the silver linings, suggest coping mechanisms, etc. Just write in a calm and positive way because we need to be calm and positive now more than ever. I also want to be around to read your input in the subject and whatever you write about that interests me.
I feel like WordPress is a safe space for me because I never get bad comments. I remember that I received a more judgmental comment some time ago but that was it. I’ve had this account since 2017. Here is our place to cry, to laugh, to vent, to empower, to express ourselves however we see fit. There is no wrong way to go about it. Even if no one reads it, you let it out.
Having more followers and engaging with them is definitely more fun than having only a few. I started out like everyone else, with only a few followers. But what made me write was my love for the craft. The followers just came naturally. But I could definitely use more engagement, I need to assert my presence online again.
I know I failed in this. I was consistent for years but slowly stopped having ideas for posts or desire to write. I drew a lot. I’ve drawn over 50 pieces since the start of the year. Now I feel more inclined to write. It’s like I have these idea incubation periods. I need time to stop and assimilate things once in a while.
I also was heartbroken and really not in the mood to write about it. I have mostly overcome it by now. My new boyfriend and binaural beats have helped immensely.
So yes, despite the chaos everywhere, I feel grateful for all my followers and I don’t want to be MIA again for so long.
