I never expected to get any followers. At all.
At first, I thought that WordPress would be like Tumblr or Blogspot, you know? An anonymous website for personal diaries and blogs where no one, at all, would follow you unless you were to post everywhere screaming and flailing, “FOLLOW ME I’M COOL!”. The only people I thought would follow this thing would be my friend, I thought that none of my posts would be liked, well apparently not.
But now, I don’t know why, but I feel uncomfortable.
I may seem a bit ungrateful at this point because there are those who actively search for people to follow them but can’t, don’t get me wrong, I actually am really grateful to see people follow me out of their own volition (regardless of how they found me). Especially since all of them are amazing people who post equally wonderful content on their own blogs. To be followed and to have their posts liked by them, and especially to have my writing seen and to know that people like it, it’s a great feeling!
However, it still feels uncomfortable. Particularly because I initially intended this blog to be mainly for my personal endeavors and thoughts and for my writing to be at the side only. Look at how that turned out lol
I’m not saying “shoo, go away, unfollow me”. No,
don’t, please stay, that was not why I placed the ‘follow’ button down there on the sidebar in the first place. To know that people are actually reading your posts and creations, without asking them to do so, is just something that I haven’t accustomed to yet.
Though, do be warned that I will still post what may look like diary entries, no matter what this blog is turning out to be. I won’t stop posting embarrassing events even if I know now that people are potentially reading
Still, at the end of the day, I’m glad to know that there are people out there who like to read what I write. It’s a nice change, no matter how it feels uncomfortable, from the other times I’ve tried to kept up blogs (like my Tumblr). So sincerely, thank you to those who do enjoy reading Fluency, I hope that I will continue to impress!
