500 Followers!!!! (My Stats went BOOMπŸ₯³)


This is crazyy. Wow

I actuallyyy reached 500 followersss!!!!!!πŸ₯³πŸ₯³πŸ₯³πŸ₯³

Okayyy. Whaaaaattt.πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜‚And even better, for the first time in my life, not ONE, but 8 (EIGHT!!!) of my posts crossed 100 likes!!!!!!

Which I was absolutely sure wasn’t going to happen in a Zillion years.

😳😳 *tries to calm down*

*takes a deep breath*


Wait. First of all I’m going to stop pretending that the numbers aren’t a deal to me, because they SO bloody mean EVERYTHING to me right now.πŸ˜‡

I’m over the moon guys!! *waves from the moon*

Honestly, when I first started I was sure that reaching 100 subscribers was going to be a humongous deal. And then againn, after my 100 year hiatus, I thought getting about 10 people odd to notice me was hardly going to happen eitherπŸ˜…

~Now 100+ likes on a post is making me faaainttt~

(Sorry for confusing you with the 10s and 100sπŸ˜‚βœŒ)

And to think it has just been 2 months since I came back. And I distinctly remember havin 250 followers then, gaining 250+ subscribers in 2 months is super UNBELIEVABLE for me.

*sobs loudly* (tears of joy)

Thankkk youuuu everyonee❀

Thank you a million, bazillion for making this place wonderful. You made this happen.πŸ’• Every comment and read means the world to me. And motivates me so much.

And every single time, you leave me surprised. Thank. You.

I keep saying “followers” but I think you’re all more of my friends than followers. So yesss. I’ve found 250+ new friends and acquaintances supporting me and my blog, in just 2 months!πŸ₯³πŸ€—


A similar post has been in my drafts for about 3 weeks. I was extremely hesitant and apprehensive about posting it, and then I finally binned it. But well, now that we’re here, Imight as well let you inπŸ˜‚

On May 4 , WordPress went crazy. I’m being 100% honest hereπŸ˜‚πŸ˜¨.

(Or maybe it’s not crazy to you, but it was definitely insane for me). Thank goodness I wrote it down.

MAY 5, 2020

BIG BIGG BEAR HUGSSS to everyone you guys! Let’s turn on the stereo lights, turn the volume UP and paaarttaaayy πŸ₯³

Please don’t run away. I’ll try not to scare you next timeπŸ˜‚.

*Sucks in a deep breath* Alright so I am still not sure about this post. Because ALL the work that went into this blog is 100% my own and very personal to me. So it’s really crazyyy for me to see all this happening in front of eyes.πŸ˜²πŸ˜‚

First of all I got THREE of these appreciative notifications from WP on the same dayπŸ₯³

And I didn’t take a screenshot, because I thought they’d stay, only they didn’t?!πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈAnd I’ve got no idea how to get them back.

Is there a way? Let me know please!

This is the 4th one however 😊

It’s really crazy but I am 100% NOT exaggerating 😯. So I very distinctly remember, at 11:49 pm (11 minutes before the day ended) (ahaha look at my memory yesss)

So at 11:49 pm I opened my stats while I sincerely hoped that after all the traffic I had that day, I’d atleast broken my previous record of Day for Highest Views which happened almost a year before my break.

To my surprise I already had, and I was chuffed as anything. I wish I’d taken a screenshot before but that tally I guess 138 views on one day. (May not be much for most of you. But well. Big deal for me. Especially when I was taking my certificate exam that year.)😝😎

So I went to bed after that and the next morning, it said the total views for May 4 was 196??!!!

~So if I had to think about it, I had 58 views in 10 sweet minutes.

Mind. blown.

I’m completely sure this is wordpress fooling me. Haha.

Has to be.

Still not sure.

Does that make sense at all

I wish I hadn’t used my phone that day and then finally when I’d opened, the notifications would have gone wild.
And I’d have been surprised and extremely happy and over the moon and whatnot.πŸ˜‚πŸ™Œ But sadly I used my phone the whole day.πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Well, it freaked me out. Just an hour off, and my phone would vibrate non-stop.😱

I mean. It was SO.OUT. OF. THE. BLUE.

Honestly, I didnt even post anything! This had to be THE highlight. Neither had I posted anything the day before that. (I think)

Those notifications look like a bomb to me right now. Something that might explode any time.

I really needed some Headspace after thatπŸ˜‚

To all the people who visited my blog yesterday. Omg thank. You. May 4 was totally a record day for my blog. You really scared me with your love.

But I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Ever.

Uhh… So yep!😁 Here’s a look at the stats!

(I was going to show the 196 views I got on May 4, but it says thisπŸ‘†πŸ€―πŸ₯³)



That graph looks SO COOL. It’s like, every week I’ve been surpassing myself steadily. That feels awesome bruv πŸ™‚πŸ’•

All of this, these numbers, they look like a dream in front of me. Something I’ve yearned for since Day 1.

So THANK YOU everybody. I really feel cheesy when it’s all I can say of at the moment. My gratitude towards you for supporting me and appreciating everything I did, is expressionless.

I’m Feeling Lucky. πŸ™‚

P.S: The only thing about not having people in your real life, read your blog is that all the work that you do seems to feel… unnoticed in the end. And honestly, it isn’t even that. I haven’t ever done any celebratory posts of this kind on my blog before, but when my stats kept booming and my posts did SO well, I suddenly looked around and felt…lonely. I wanted to celebrate that, or at the least, tell someone. Well, maybe I will soon, or maybe not, but then did I get this idea of sharing my joy with the people who actually knew me best. And say THANK YOU to the people who made this possible.

Because, if not here, where else would I go? πŸ™‚ P.P.S. SOrryy I plastered “2 months everywhere”. πŸ˜‚


Too glam to give a damn πŸ’«

  1. That is BRILLIANT!!! πŸ˜† But I hate to break it to you…I’m not surprised because your blog is amazing and you are fabulous at what you do! πŸ™ŒπŸ˜πŸ˜‚ I get that blogging loneliness a bit with certain people I haven’t told and feel guilty for not doing so but I know they’d just find a way to put me down about it so I’m going to wait it out πŸ˜• So when they ask me what I’ve been doing and I’ve spent the majority of my day blogging I have NO idea what to say πŸ˜‚ I’m happy with the people who know for now ✨ anyway, CONGRATULATIONS!! πŸ˜„β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ

      Oo I don’t really feel guilty i guessπŸ˜‚, because like you said I don’t think they’re going to support me anyway. But yessπŸ˜‚ that’s an awkward mess when I get that question tooπŸ™Œ.

      1. WOW this was nothing short of an honor to read my friend; it is of immense pleasure πŸ€˜πŸ€˜πŸ˜†. Seeing your fun engaging topics, collaborations and wondrous insight makes me feel the same exact way as you do about our short but excellent acquaintance hahaha. Keep up the good work as well and thanks for your encouragement, it always gives me alot more enthusiasm BriN πŸ™ŒοΈπŸŽ‰οΈπŸŽˆ.

        Ohh yeah about the posting; I actually do still post weekly — most of the new stuff is posted to the Comments [RAW Edition] area but it’s not an area I actively promote because of it’s “strong” content, so I usually believe that the folks who come across it and pay attention to what’s going on there are genuinely interested.

        I have plans to resume publishing content in the other areas like the //Raw Edition// category for example, but the concepts I have for sections like that require some additional content which rely on certain technical parameters that require time and bandwidth, so right now new topics to those areas are on hold until I get things sorted out behind-the-scenes on my end because of new development and ideas, but right now most of the new content gets posted weekly to the “Comments [RAW Edition]” spot πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

        That’s just an update — didn’t want to make it too long especially on you blog post but I hope you understand lol.

  8. hello!! how are you?

    firstly i love your blog design! it’s so bubbly and funky and eek i love love love it!

    secondly CONGRATS ON 500 FOLLOWERS! *throws confetti in the air*

    and i totally get that blogging should be for enjoyment, and we shouldn’t get hung up over stats and figures, buuuuut it does feel rewarding, and you do feel proud when you see your hardwork is paying of in the sense you’re getting to interact with new people, build more bonds, get exposed to more content, have more people sharing and appreciating your amazingness, and it’s a warming feeling to sit back and reflect on how much you’re grown and learned by yourself on this blogging journey.

    hope you have a lovely june and here’s to more awesome blogging moments
