On January 25, 2020, I opened my up world and ventured into something new and exciting, but also a little scary. I wrote my first blog.
My excitement was intimidated slightly by fear. Would I have enough words to write? Would anyone even care to read my thoughts? Would they return? How do I keep people coming back? Will I run out of things to say?
Well, today, this blog is a celebration of sorts. A milestone. This is my 100th blog. I began this journey 5 months and 5 days ago. Since then I’ve had 2,561+ views and welcomed 940+ visitors into my home with a hot cup of coffee at my table, or on my porch swing.
If I was told in January that I would write 100 blogs by the end of June, I probably would have headed into a major writer’s block. I know me. The pressure I would have experienced would have been great, and I’d be filled with doubt. It would have appeared to be so much bigger than I ever anticipated. But I didn’t know. And thankfully so. I took this task one day at a time. One thought at a time. One blog at a time.
If my blogs returned to me empty, if no one came to sit with me over coffee, and if I had zero likes or comments, would I have been able to continue? No. I’d close my blog, stay at home, and write in a journal. So I am greatly blessed by you, the readers. Without you, there’d be no blog, no coffeewithandi. Unless you actually came to my home and had coffee with me. 🙂
So today, together, we celebrate 100 blogs. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 💕
My gratitude runs deep. ♥️
