Yesterday I reached a bit of a milestone.
I was sitting having lunch with my wife and my parents. My iPhone bleeped, notifying me of a new alert. The alert was from the WordPress App, ‘Congratulations, you’ve reached 500 likes!’
Everyday, my blog that I started only a month ago, continues to surprise me and make me smile.
You just never know what kind of response, that the post you happen to be typing, will actually get.
Who knows if anybody will even read this?
I’m a firm believer in hard work paying off, you reap what you sew and that if you want something badly enough, come hell or high water you’ll get it.
My WordPress blog continues to be a foundation of the hard work and imagination that goes into my writing, it’s also a showcase for the world to read it, if they choose.
In life, if you praise somebody when they’re doing a good job, it’ll motivate them to continue and get even better.
Yesterday afternoon, the alert on my iPhone was my praise and motivation to ‘keep going, you’re doing alright’.
To the next 500 likes.
