Hello friends! I've been thinking about things lately and all I have to say is this: I'm really happy with where things are at right now with this blog. I have been feeling so much love and community around here lately and it really warms my heart! I don't consider myself a well seasoned blogger or anything like that, but I am simply proud of the growth that has been going on in this space. It's a beautiful thing, really.
When you first start blogging, you just wait and wait and wait for someone to find you and like you enough to leave some sort of comment letting you know. I remember being SO excited when I got my first comment, and really, I still am just as excited every time I check my e-mail and there is a notification telling me that someone left me a new little love note. There was also a time that I totally obsessed over numbers. That went on for a very long time. It is really only in the last couple months that I have just stopped letting my worth and validity be stunted by the stats page on my Blogger dashboard. I have just let go have and not given a damn. And you know what? I have grown so much.
I know that there there a lot of useful things that can be learned from those stat pages, and maybe one day I will finally figure out how to make sense of Google Analytics and SEO, but for now I am okay with investing more energy into creating content I am proud of and making friends in this big Blogland. Isn't it funny how when we start to let go of the little things and do our best to be genuine, others start to take notice?
