To all 500 of you…
My dear readers; my friends of the Internet – It was precisely today one year ago that I wrote my very first letter of appreciation to the 200 readers that formed this community. I am writing this letter now, as the very same community expanded to 500.
500 of you who have made this blog much more than a place that houses my own thoughts and feelings – you have transformed it into a place of discussion, a platform to connect and share opinions and advice. I have had the immense pleasure of getting to know so many of you, exchanging stories, collaborating with each other and ultimately, supporting each other.
This itsy bitsy corner of the Internet has been a safe haven for me this past year. It has been a space that allowed me to document, express myself, connect with so many like-minded creatives and truly grow as a person. There are not enough words to describe how much this little Internet nook has helped and benefitted me.
Let me therefore, with all of that being said (or rather written), express my immense gratitude for each and every single one of you.
The friend that makes this feel like a second home to me.
You, the reader that has encouraged me to grow and motivated me to always keep working hard on what I believe in.
You, the fellow blogger who has made this not a one- but a two-way street.
You have made this experience so far like no other.
And even though we are parted by countries, cultures or even oceans, there is one thing that ultimately ties us all together: This, this wonderful, beautiful passion of ours. Don’t ever lose your love for writing, for sharing, for expressing, for questioning.
