100 followers!

So, um, this happened.

Thank you guys sooo much for 100 followers, it really means so much to me! 💞

When I started blogging a WHILE back, I gained followers very slowly. I remember the time I was so proud to have like 20 followers.

Now I have 100, and that’s just crazy. I would never have expected that so many amazing people would like my poems and follow my blog.

Despite the fact that we all know I’m not the most frequent with updating 🙄

Anyway, I really wanted to thank all the people who followed, my family and friends for being so insanely supportive!

Also check out Arshia Vora. She’s got an amazing blog that I’m sure you all will love. She pushed me to try and follow through with my blog, so I’m super grateful to her.

I’m so so grateful to so many people who were always so encouraging and kind. My awesome parents who pushed me to keep writing, my friends who always read through my drafts, my teacher, who gave me the idea to start a blog in the first place, and all the people who helped me reach 100.

Yeah, that’s all I have to say. Thanks again for 100 followers, it’s completely mind blowing for me. Much love 😋

500 likes!

This is not a normal kind of post for me, but I wanted to thank everyone for 500 likes.

I don’t know if this is considered by people as a massive number but to me it’s a big deal, so thank you all so much!

Anyway that’s mostly all I had to say, but also a belated thank you for 2000 views and 70 followers! I was gonna make a post for when I hit 100 but here we are.

So, once again, thank you so much. You’re all awesome. Thanks for reading ❤️

So…

So you’re bored,

What should you do?

Chill?

Skip or run?

Clean up after yourself dutifully?

Your mom probably wishes you’d do that once in a while…

So what do you do eventually?

Ever heard of reading?

So you think to yourself. Why not? Let’s give it a shot.

And you see the old dusty bookcase in the corner of the room.

Ugh… it’s just ugly. But let’s give it a shot.

So, you take out a book, blow the dust off, have a coughing fit, and then open the book.

In a movie, there would be an angelic glow and the music would start, and your eyes would light up.

But all you see is yellow pages, so disappointing…

Where’s the pictures? Where’s the music? Just words after words after words! But you promised to give it a shot so, here goes nothing.

You begin to read, word by word. And what do you find?

It’s not as bad as you thought is was! The more you read, the more you love the book!

And soon, you’ve read every book on that shelf. And every shelf in that bookcase!

You’ll probably go bankrupt buying more and more books!
