internet famous.


I’m not really internet famous… but Grizz thinks I am.

Today… this happened…


I won’t lie — I knew I was close and I’ve been checking every day. I thought it would be lovely if I reached this milestone before the year ended… and tonight, I did. [Okay, technically yesterday since it’s after midnight here…]

Of course, I realize anyone could unfollow me at any time so that number could drop. But I still reached it! And I’m kind of amazed. My personal crap, my life stories, my fiction, and, God, even my poetry — Is it really entertaining? Most days, I still can’t believe that. [Then some days, I’m oddly cocky and think I’m pretty awesome with words…]

Whatever makes you visit… and revisit — thanks for being here. [And please do tell me what keeps you coming back — it matters to me!]



About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, 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, too. 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.

    Congratulations! 200 followers is a lot (although I do notice on the sidebar you actually have 218 followers right now).

    I keep coming back because:

    a) I’m looking out for Fiction Friday (which is technically Fiction Saturday where I live).
    b) Your stories are funny/ inspiring.
    c) You’re a kind person who visits my blog.
    d) You always reply thoughtfully and sincerely to my comments on your blog posts.

    I can’t believe you are maintaining that modesty of yours 😉

    • The sidebar includes my [pathetic] number of twitter followers… which is why it’s higher. I was confused about that, too… until I figured it out!

      Thanks for the kind words and for telling me why you come here — I love to know this stuff!

      I can’t let the modesty go… I mean, what’s the alternative? Self-absorbed snotty bitch? 🙂 That’s really just not me. Usually. 😉

        Whereas I have like 5 twitter followers. You’re not helping my confidence 😉

        Yeah, modesty is good in most cases. But you’re allowed to saw “I’m awesome” every one in a while 🙂

        By the way, I’d love for you to take my poll if you haven’t already:

        Only 4 people have taken it, and I have 83 followers. I’m continually saddened by this lack of action! 😉

        • I don’t even know how I have 18 twitter followers. I am barely there… though this blog is linked.

          I try to say (and believe) that I’m awesome every now and then. Maybe someday I’ll actually have confidence! [This reminds me of a new weekly feature I wanted to start… so thanks! :)]

          I think I did take your poll — and I don’t want to skew your results, but I just took it again just in case my memory is failing me (common problem!).

          When I tried to get people to give feedback in a poll / form thing, I got about 2 or 3 responses total! I think around that time I had less than 100 followers. I think you’re response rate is better! It is sad!

    YAY!!! Congrats! I too had been hoping to cross 200, before 2016 began.. but I am 196. It’s good enough 🙂 I am happy 🙂 although would love it if I do get 5 followers in the next couple of hours. Highly unlikely, though!

    What makes me visit? YOU! Love you! Happy new year! May 2016 bring with health, wealth and happiness!
