500. A milestone.
If you embrace the concept of numerology, or ‘Angel Numbers’, as some refer to them, the number 500 represents sweeping changes in one’s life, a transition from the ‘old ways’, towards motivated, positive growth. 500 promotes courage and personal freedom, the traits necessary to achieve your life’s mission, as only your intuition and higher-self understands.
Perhaps the universe is speaking to me.
It began a little over a year ago with an idea and an aspiration. The world needed more Blogs. I occasionally had something to say. So why not?
After comparing the attributes, the pros and cons, glowing reviews versus scathing criticisms, I had to choose a platform. Would it be WordPress or Blogger? Beta or VHS?
No surprise to anyone reading, WordPress won the Pepsi challenge.
And, 15 months later, I find myself at mile marker 500.
500 WordPress followers.
Quite an accomplishment for an inspirationally-challenged individual, one who loves to procrastinate and hates to write.
All joking aside, I am humbled and deeply grateful. While I’m not naïve enough to believe 500+ adoring followers are tuning in regularly, waiting with bated breath for their weekly installment of unconventional wisdom, it’s an honor just to be nominated.
Wait, wrong speech.
Joking aside (again), for everyone who’s visited, and especially for those who made themselves at home, I thank you.
Blogging is a challenge, and the occasional acknowledgement from one’s peers goes a long way. While an audience is never a requirement, nor a prerequisite for the creative soul, recognition in the form of followers is akin to a successful harvest; a culmination of months of planting, nurturing and hard work. You spare your darlings, release your words into the cosmos, and move on. A labor of love, if done correctly.
Let’s continue to support one another. Stop by my place, I’ll stop by yours.
Thank you, not only to my WordPress 500, but to all my subscribers, and any others who surreptitiously visit under the cover of darkness, like Batman, hidden behind the anonymity of a faceless Avatar.
I know you’re out there.
And I welcome you.
Until next time,
