I’ll try to keep this short and sweet.
I want to take this moment and give a huge thank you and shout out to all my followers. As of yesterday, I have over 600 readers. It may not seem like a lot in the grand scheme of things, but it’s more successful than I thought it would be a year ago, August, when I started this journey. While I don’t believe that having a large readership or a ton of likes or clicks is everything–I started this project for other reasons–I will say that having so many amazing people follow me and/or subscribe to my blog is certainly uplifting and inspirational. As many of you may have noticed, my blog is not monetized; I receive no money for my writing nor do I sell anything on my site. That is not it’s purpose. Its purpose is, and from the beginning was, to find an outlet for my often unhealthy habits and the energies associated with them; in fact, October 11th marked a year to the day since I have had a drop of alcohol; it was my anniversary. In this, if nothing else, I believe my blog has found great personal success. And those of you who have chosen to follow this blog have made it all the sweeter. I hope you will stay with me as I continue my journey toward wellness, which is just that, a journey, not a destination.
As the Fall semester winds down and comes to a close, I look forward to bringing you more fresh and original material about the outdoors, writing, and wellness.
