1000 likes? Yes please!

Yesterday was another great day for my blog.

I was alerted of my 1000th like.

This isn’t a post to brag, it’s actually to describe my amazement, gratitude and how much I enjoy the WordPress community.

For those of you who have been following my blog, you may know that I only started it around 2.5 months ago. That’s 8 weeks or 56 days, roughly.

If you do the math, that works out at 17.85 likes a day, 125 likes a week or 400 likes a month. Add to this, 223 followers since my blog began, it all seems very encouraging.

Now, WordPress is not or should not be a numbers game. Getting hung up on the likes, followers or daily stats, as I have done and have blogged about in the past, then you’re on a path to disaster, as it no longer becomes about your writing or your blogs, just a desperate battle to get noticed.

My point is simple. If you do what you do, write what you write, write it well and share it often, everything else will happen naturally. Keep this mindset, and you’re in for exciting times ahead.

To all my readers, followers, rebloggers and critics who have made my writing and blog successful: thank you!

What’s next for your blog?

  1. Nicely done! I’ve had this blog since August and hit 200 likes a little bit ago – I currently have nearly 300 followers. I love what I do – enjoying every minute of it.
