Although some people have hundreds, thousands or millions of people following their blog, reaching fifty followers today feels like a victory to me.
This photo is old but I thought it was quite occasion-appropriate. When I started my blog about two weeks ago, it was because I love writing and I thought it would be a good platform but I thought it would take me months to get any followers or interaction whatsoever.
