It's been almost 8 months since I started blogging, and I just hit 90 followers, which I am really happy with. Over that time my blog has grown and developed into something I am quite proud of - when I allow myself.
After a couple of months of slow but steady traffic, when 'The Woman Condition' was mainly visited by family and friends, it is now reaching a wider audience, and the A to Z blogging month of April has been a major step in the process.
What a journey so far, from my first tentative steps out of the safe(r) shadows of internet lurking, to discovering my online voice and connecting with others as 'me' instead of one of the many facades that get me through everyday life.
What blogging has taught me more than anything else so far, is that it's okay to be less paranoid. Probably. Most of the time.
Anyway, in order to celebrate the nearly-100-followers and thank you for sticking around, I want to give away a few presents.
If you want to take part in the draw:
- Be a follower of this blog.
(Old or new followers are equally welcome to take part.)
- Comment on this post what you most like about my blog.
- In your comment, mention which 3 posts on my blog you like/remember best.
On the 22nd, an innocent hand (well, mine, but I give you my Leo Word of Honour that it will happen fairly) will draw 3 names from the qualifying comments. I will announce the winners here and inform them personally (via email, blog, FB, ... depending on what contact information I have).
Your answers should help me get a better idea of topics you'd like to see more of in the future, and (with any luck) I'll have a post to come back to every time I think my writing is awful and pointless and nobody could possibly be interested in what I have to say. I might be a Leo, but those days still happen. ;-)
Thanks for following, for your comments and your support!
