So it has occurred to me recently that here on Michelle Leigh Writes, we’ve reached 100 followers!!!!
It may not seem like much to many people, but to me it means a great deal.
As a writer I’ve always toyed with this idea to start a blog and I always stopped myself, until about (we’re nearing 3) years ago I decided to do so.
And I never set out to make this into anything specific, I just wanted it to become whatever it was supposed to. I wanted it to be a safe place for my written word and to get a chance to share my writing with people. Something that I have always been self-conscious about doing.
This blog has been a diary or sorts and a creative outlet and I have loved it, and will continue to love sharing with those who read along.
It has gone through it’s awkward phases (and quite frankly still is), it has gone through me posting everyday, to here and there, to steadily twice a week (Mondays & Thursdays) since we hit 2015. It was important to me to create a schedule that I knew I’d stick with. With life changing and me trying to find my path, it’s difficult to post everyday and sometimes I would hit a stump and just come up with something random to post so I could keep up the continuity and consistency. I still sometimes feel like that even with just the two designated days. I know a posting day is coming up and I begin to worry Oh no I don’t know what to post. But sometimes inspiration will hit and there I go typing away for hours.
I never want to post half ass stuff. I spend so much time on my blog posts, writing them, searching for images or videos to accompany them, researching, editing. It means a lot to me to get it right. To get my point across to you, no matter if it’s a heartfelt poem, a short love story scene, or a review of a tv show. It all means something to me. And I hope that I can continue to write things people enjoy and find relatable. And I hope people can get something out of the heart I am sharing with you.
So I thank you for visiting, I thank you for reading, and I thank you for coming along with me on this journey and I hope you continue to do so. Talk to me in the comments, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
And lastly…here’s to being kind, staying creative and leaving a safe place for the written word.
