What a milestone week! When I started this journey 18 months ago, the view from my driver’s seat was an open road with absolutely no road signs or detour warnings. I admit I did not even have a compass to point me in any direction. I simply decided to start the engine, step on the gas, and see where the adventure took me. Yee Haw, Pilgrims, it has been a fun ride!
In February of this year, only four months ago (02/06/2022), I hit an unthinkable milestone – 3,000 followers. How I managed to accomplish that in only 14 months with zany life observations couched in dark wit and edgy sarcasm was beyond comprehension. I felt unbelievably blessed to have somehow endeared that many readers who deemed me interesting enough to follow. It left me intellectually speechless and emotionally overwhelmed.
This morning, 05/31/2022, my follower count registered at 4,032! That is over a thousand new readers in 115 days! I am on a certifiable high that no drug on the planet could replicate. I will be forever grateful to every reader who clicked that “FOLLOW” button and breathed new life into a silly old storyteller. While I really do write for “me,” I cannot explain how validated it makes me feel as a writer, a satirical voice in the night, and a lover of life and love.
I wish I could list you all right here, right now. True writers will write no matter who reads, but when readers appear, whether they agree or disagree with the message, the passion of the writer only grows. And my heart is full – so very full.
So, stand up readers. Take a bow! You are my heroes, one and all! Thank you for reading, for sharing, for commenting, and most importantly, for smiling with me in the comedy of diversity. We make a great team! Ah, but that is fodder for yet another rant.
