I have 101 followers. I do not understand any of this.
First, thank you thank you, thank you!
Second is this weird? I haven’t even got my web/blog thingy working right yet. Is everyone crazy? I’m confused, proud, confused, scared, grateful, confused & headachy.
I don’t cope well with any form of socialization, I never know whether someone is a friend, an acquaintance or what? I like being a friend , but I don’t want to impose myself on some poor person.
I thought that the distance of the format would reduce this weird feeling of knowing people I really actually don’t know. But this is coming from a person who bought “Voluto” Nespresso coffee because I knew someone in the family liked it even if I couldn’t remember who; it was George Clooney who I don’t know. I have almost bought presents for 4 people whose blogs I read. In Western Australia we get the tail end of retail so if you see something you want you grab it quick before it sells out, so if I see something that would suit someone I love I buy it. So when I saw some things I thought people might love I almost bought them before I remembered that the intended recipient was someone I couldn’t actually send a gift too.
Next level crazy; I’m starting to worry about bothering people by liking/commenting on their posts. I starting to worry about bloggers I admire being disappointed when they learn I’m horrible. There are some really incredible people out there & I so don’t want them to think I am a dork/idiot/arrogant pig. I also worry when some of you write sad things because I want you to be happy! Oh and just to remind you; my eldest is brilliant, blonde and has never been on a date, she’s autistic & thus doesn’t have the emotional sophistication to hurt you; hint hint hint!
Reverse crazy; just as nuts but in the opposite direction, why has it taken so long to get followers, why can’t I write better. Are theses pity followers? I want more followers, lots more! But boring followers because I keep reading really interesting posts and I can’t write because there is always too many interesting things to read!
I’m weird, although at least some of this nuttiness might be because of the Autism, or the agoraphobia, or my complete lack of understanding of reality.
I just thought of something; I have 101 followers, I started this by attending Blogging 101, I am now doomed, I have peaked, this is my destined pinnacle. If this is true; Farewell! I love most of you!
Anyway I believe this is a good thing as far as I can tell. So hurrah 101 followers!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
