Happy Friday everyone!
I woke up this morning (ahem, more like afternoon) and was so elated to see that I had hit OVER 1,000 followers via Google Friend Connect! In the big scheme of things, blogging isn't about the followers and how many you have. Blogging should be about posting what makes you happy for you--not for others. But the fact that over 1,000 people follow this blog...it blows.me.away. When I first started this blog I dreamed of having 1,000 followers, but it felt like it would never happen. When you're stuck at 58 followers for a good six months 1k seems pretty far away, hah.
It is hard for me to wrap my mind around that number of people that follow me. On my twitter the other day I posted that I had hit over 750,000 total page views. That number is terrifying to me that my blog has been looked at that many times. I guess I just don't understand...why? In my eyes I am nothing special. It's not a low self-esteem thing or even being humble. I'm just this ordinary midwest girl who's in college and wears clothing? What's so special about that? When reading through the comments of my 4 year blog anniversary I was just so overwhelmed with gratitude that you all take the time out of your busy lives to read about mine, see how I'm doing, and support and encourage me on. Blows me out of the water, really. That I'm some of you guy's favorite blog...? Like, what have I done to deserve that honor?! Honestly nothing.
I'm just lucky to have over 1,000 people and more who, even though I am just me... that's enough for them. Forever thankful and forever grateful. I was just thinking that 1,000 is such a huge, important milestone that I want to draw TWO winners for the MAC lipstick giveaway. One in celebration for four years and one in celebration for 1,000 followers. I feel like it's only a right way to say thank you Now if I could only buy all of you a MAC lipstick but that'd be ohh... 1,002 x 15 = $15,032. I think I need that for my tuition haha.
Love you all! If you haven't entered the giveaway yet it's right here :)
With much love, Lauren.
