After turning my love for writing into a hobby a year ago, I never thought I would make it this far. I’ve found a positive and effective outlet to express myself and my thoughts to the world and my audience. WordPress has given me an opportunity to be myself while exploring my views on music and film. What has honestly shocked me the most about writing is the audience I’ve built. I never would have thought I’d have more than one follower. I currently have over 150 followers and to me that’s insane. Being able to write for you all has given me a way to simply be myself and not be ashamed or concerned. I’ve made friends along the way, I’ve learned new things, and most importantly I’ve had fun. I rarely find fun in my hobbies, however, writing has made the biggest impact on me mentally. I currently have many ongoing and successful series that I look forward to continuing each week. Especially the last week and a half, I’ve become set on making my Summer count and have been publishing an article a day. While this is stressful and quite difficult for me, I’ve found it rewarding to see the interaction it gets from readers and friends.
So far this Summer I’ve published 19 articles not counting this one. This has been an interesting challenge that I want to run with for as long as I can. I would like to thank everyone that follows me and/or reads my content as it means the world to me that people enjoy my work and thoughts. I would also especially like to thank the following people for their help and support since I’ve begun writing: Steve For The Deaf, MusiCommentator, Molasses, Under Dog Off The Bench, Dan Glennon, Ashley, Terrell, Alex M, Jayda, Keonte, Kamyria, Shane, Dallas, Joe S, Brandon A, Riley, Brandy, Matt G, Cody, Mike W, Lamont, Joseph A, Tyron, Casey, Nisker, Calvin, Diana, Hunter, Sarah, Jorge, Justin B, Deven, Sam, Trey, Taheim, Aria, Andrew, and most importantly my Dad.
Those who I didn’t mention, I still want to say thank you for the support and help too! 50 posts down, 50 more to go.
