thank you, wonderful readers.

thank you neon.

Today I reached 100 followers. I know it may not be a big deal to bloggers with thousands of followers, but it’s a very big deal to me.

Thank you. Merci. Gracias. Danke. Grazie. Mahalo. Diakuju.

One night, after a particularly bad day, I anonymously spilled every detail of every thought in my head in a public forum online. I needed to unload. And I needed someone to get me.

Someone got me. A few someones. But it wasn’t just the content of my story that touched them. They said it was also my writing. They liked reading my story. I made one of them cryWrite more, they told me. Publish something somewhere, they told me.

So I finally did.

And to my shock and awe and amazement, people actually read it!

I am so grateful that each of you found something of value, of joy, of humor, of enjoyment [or of anything else] in my words.

Or maybe you just clicked follow and never came back. I don’t care. It still says 101 in my follower count.

Thanks for your support and thoughts and kindness. And for reading. xo

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
