Welcome to The Yellow Brick Ave! We are now 100 steps down the road!
I would like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. Whether you have followed this blog from its beginning or you have only just found me, I truly appreciate the time that you have taken to read the words that I write. I went into this experience with very few expectations (I didn’t even have a plan in mind for what type of content I would be creating), but I have been absolutely blown away by the community that I have found here. Your guys are so kind and welcoming! I can only hope that some of you might feel the same way about me.
To tack on a few other milestones that will not get their own dedicated blogposts, I have been writing on this blog for over a year, I recently purchased a domain, and I am nearly at 400 followers.
More important than all of those, I have met so many people through this creative endeavor that I never would have otherwise. I have interacted with poets and other writers whose work I admire deeply. I have received encouragement to keep going even when putting out new content is tricky. I’m still not in a place where I can guarantee any sort of consistency, but knowing that people want to read more of my writing is a great cause of working toward that consistency.
And just so you know, since it has not been until lately that I’ve started really sharing this, I do have an Instagram account where I post separate poems from here. I don’t think I’m as good at micropoetry as I am at the macro stuff, so I don’t advertise it often, but it does exist if you want to check it out.
To end, I would like to express my gratitude once more. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Every view, like, and comment brightens my day more than I could have ever imagined when I made the decision to start this blog. I hope that my words now, in the past, and in the future may brighten yours, too.
Until next time, peace out!
