I feel like Dori in Finding Nemo: “just keep swimming.” That is what I am trying to do with this blog: just keep writing. I will keep writing about social justice issues, I will keep writing about belief, I will keep writing fiction, and I will keep writing my poetry. I will continue to do this for my gratification, of course, but also because I hope you all enjoy it. I am assuming you do because HoA has passed an important milestone: 1000 followers.
I know that is not a huge number, but it is a good start. It took us eighteen months to get the first five hundred. It only took six for then second five hundred. I know I have done a few things different publicity wise, but I would like to think it is because I have gotten a little better with the consistency (this last long break was a week, not two months) and quality. Of course if anything can be improved here, I would love to hear from you, any of you.
Thank you all so much for reading. Please spread the word, but even more important, please comment, even if it is in a way you think I won’t like. Especially on the social commentary essays. We are all about the dialogue here at HoA, and I want to keep it going, and keep it growing.
On a final note, I will have some free offers and contests in the future. There will also be some changes as I want to dive into start interviewing experts and interested parties on various issues. Thank you all, once again, so much. No matter how many followers I end up with, you first 1000, even if I don’t know you all, will always be important to me. You were the first to show some faith.
