One Thousand Views


The only way to go is up.

Yesterday, after almost six months of blogging, I hit my first 1,000 views and 500 visitors to my site.

Views are not what it’s all about for me. I made this site for me to have an outlet for documenting my ideas and organizing them into ideas and posts. Creating this site has been a journey for me already, and I’m so blessed with my progress so far. I’m not writing hoping for thousands of readers, I’m writing because I want to.

That being said, my first thousand views is a milestone to be celebrated! I’m proud of how much I’ve written so far and I couldn’t be happier with how my site has grown in just six months. I’m excited for the future of this blog and I can’t wait to look back and see my progress over the next six months and beyond. Thank you for reading, and for supporting me in this, it means so much!
