Today’s post is dedicated to every single one of you out there in cyberspace that stops by and reads my blog from time to time. I want to say Thank You as I approach this milestone.
Coming up very quickly now, on Wednesday, December 21st, I will be celebrating ONE FULL YEAR since my very first post on this blog.
The 21st is also my husband’s birthday. He turns 48 this year and I can’t tell you how different things are since he turned 47. Wait, maybe I can…let’s see. 😉
We live in a different apartment and a different locale. We moved from the city with a population of somewhere around 54,500 people to a town with a population of 3,500.
That alone was a huge difference and then adding to that our apartment itself has gone from something stuck in the 50’s/60’s to an apartment that is brand new & modern, where we are the very first tenants.
We went from not going to church at all in the city to being fully involved in our local church here.
Kevin plays guitar sometimes with the worship team. I operate the soundboard and record the sermon to be put on the church’s website.
Both of us help clean the church every other week as well. Life here has turned a full 180 degrees from the life we lived back in the city.
This will be my 92nd post and I now have 88 followers on WordPress plus 3 followers via email. I am ecstatically happy with my blog’s growth.
It means the world to me that all those people, and more, want to read what I write. Thank you, doesn’t begin to express my gratitude but it is the best I can do right now.
In that same year, my YouTube channel has finally begun to take off as well. Back in the city, I was lucky to have just over 200 subscribers and just yesterday I attained 600 subs!
On the 21st I will be enjoying a steak dinner with all the fixings with my husband to celebrate not only his birthday but a tremendous first anniversary of my blog.
The fact that I have stuck to writing this blog that long is amazing to me. I have attempted to blog before but soon lost interest and let the blogs fade into obscurity.
I actually feel like I am in a really good place in my life now. Gone are the depressing surroundings, gone too are the wishy-washy commitments to blogging and to my YouTube channel.
Now that I am seeing significant changes and improvements in all areas in my life and what I am doing I feel like I have the momentum to keep rolling full steam ahead in this direction.
Well, my friends, I will cut this post short and get it uploaded. There is still much to do and so very little day left in which to do it.
Please know that I appreciate each and every one of you reading this. You are all contributing to my happiness in this present moment and I am so very grateful.
Have yourselves a wonderful day/night and I will see you again for post #93. 🙂
