I’ve reached the (not so) big five-oh!

Yesterday was the three-month birthday of my blog, the thirteenth, and I’ve decided to take (another) look back at my first months in the blogging world. I also recently reached fifty followers, which has encouraged me so much.

In October, I was blogging almost every day. I haven’t been able to blog as often as that since then, but at the moment I’m trying to do around 2 posts a week.

Nothing comes to mind particularly about November. I was trying to be someone older and more knowledgable about pretty much everything than I am. I started to feel like that was a bit of a lie, though (which, to be fair, it was) and altered my strategy. It’s hard for me to write as someone I’m not. I started using the internet and forums etc. from the earlier side so it feels weird being very honest as well. Is that irony? I’m not sure. Irony doesn’t make sense to me. I mean, it sounds like the word iron. Ironing = not fun.

December was the month of Christmas. Christmas needs no explanation. It’s Christmas.

And in January? Well, I reached fifty followers which may not seem like a lot, but it’s a lot for me! I’m excited about what the month will bring and I’m also excited that in, say, six month’s time, I could have one hundred followers. That is Exciting (note the capital E).

I’m considering some sort of giveaway. I feel like people will only follow for the prize though, which kind of destroys the point. I really need to stop saying ‘like’ and ‘kinda’. I seem to have brought it into all my friends’ speech patterns.
That was random. Anyway:

How’re you all enjoying January? I keep seeing all these diet articles in magazines. It mostly seems to be a load of nonsense. We’ve survived for the last three thousand odd years without knowing how many calories are in every food imaginable and we can probably survive without. They didn’t have waffles a three thousand years ago, though. Mmm…

I’ll see you all later in the week when I write my next post!

  1. [ Smiles ] Nicely done; you are off to a great start.

    Since you have asked, January seems to be going quite well for me.

    1. Glad to hear it!
      Also, I don’t want to be nosy so don’t feel you have to answer or anything, but: I’ve been reading your blog and your comments, and you write [ Smiles ] at the beginning of all your comments, and I was wondering why.
      Yeah, that was a bit awkward. Smiles are awesome 🙂 .

      1. [ Laughs ] I actually smile when I write them and that is my unique way of expressing emotions through writing.

A penny for your thoughts?
