I’m having one of those periods where I need to find something different to write about and specifically focus on being grateful.
So, WordPress tells me this week that I’ve reached a milestone by having 1,000 followers. Woo~hoo! If you look at the count on my email sign up though, it shows over 3,700 followers, which I believe is the total amount of all social media outlets that are connected. I can’t even believe it!
I remember being so excited just to reach the first dozen, then fifty, then the first hundred, and so forth. It just blows me away to know that so many people have freely entered their email address, wanting to be notified when I have something to say. It’s a very humbling experience and I’m very, very grateful! Thank you my friends :)
It makes you wonder just how much traffic this site could bring once it’s redone and doesn’t have the limitations it experiences now. That’s something I really look forward to and what makes me believe I can continue to make a living this way (to include speaking engagements, coaching and publishing, of course.)
You know, one can’t be an author or speaker without an audience. Nor, can our story become HIS story unless we’re willing to share it, so it can help others. In this way, He gets all the glory too! Therefore, our success as individuals depends greatly upon one another as a whole. If you think about it, the rise and fall of any career really is anchored in helping others achieve their dreams (as I’m currently writing another post about ‘redefining myself’.) That’s a good thing though, and why it’s important to embrace the gifts and talents we do have, seeking out every opportunity to use them for the collective good.
