As you can see I now have 10 official followers. This has left me feeling very chuffed in a time when my life isn't going exactly how I'd like to. I actually looked up my latest follower and discovered that she has over 400 followers herself - this actually made me feel even better as that means that she has access to plenty of blogs but it was mine that she has chosen to follow (I'm sorry if this is putting you off reading my blog in future).
Of course, blogging shouldn't be about the number of followers we have but I know better than that - it is always about how many people are reading what we are writing. I know that there are many people who read this blog who aren't followers on here, so hello to all of you as well. As much as I'd like to think that writing is solely for me, I know that that would be a lie - it is about reaching out and making an impact, however small, on someone's life. Of course, the more lives it impacts, the better and the more we feel defined as writers and people in this world where everyone is shooting for their 15 minutes of fame. I don't think that should effect what we write, but it's always nice to know that the readers are out there.
