Wether you’ve been blogging for a while, or if you’re new in the Bloggosphere, you probably know that one of the things that motivates us to keep going, is a nice milestone.
It can be many things… Your first ”View”, your first ”Like”, your first comment. Your first month or year blogging. Getting 50, 250, 1000 followers. Or maybe, if you’re silly like me, collecting the flags of certain countries and territories (I’m still waiting for you, Greenland!!).
As the months and years go on, unless you are a statistics freak (or someone trying to bring their blog to a commercial level), you eventually understand that numbers don’t mean much, compared to the achievement of lasting.
We see blogs appearing and others vanishing every month.
And the difference between the sites that make it through time, and those that end up fading in the background is the dedication to keep making baby steps, day in and day out.
As I mentionned last week, six years ago, I was standing before my brand new Cove. It was a blank canvas, and I didn’t really know what I would fill it with, aside from all my Denmark-related shenanigans.
But I put one foot in front of the other, and took baby steps, making sure to keep going. Sometimes, I tripped. Sometimes, you Lovelies lifted me so high with your love and support that my feet didn’t touch the ground for a while!
Through thick and thin, I stubbornly marched on.
And today, I realized I was posting my 6,000th post. Six thousands! They weren’t all brilliant (as a matter of fact, most of them weren’t), but still.
That means sitting down, preparing a little something and hitting the ”publish” button 6,000 times.
And that’s all thanks to you, Lovelies.
Thank you for welcoming me and my silliness in this incredible community!
If you are new to WordPress, and doubt you have what it takes to make it in this strange jungle, I can only encourage you to take the leap… Tell us who you are, share what you like, don’t copy what others do. Just show your true colors, and have fun!
And go one baby step at a time.
Someday you just might about to press ”publish” on your 6,000th post too!
