Shall I post, shan’t I post…

I’m not sure if it’s due to an inflated ego or whatever but I am going to tell you… or tell me for when I look back on this sometime in the future…

Today I reached the milestone of 100 followers!! The achievement seems even greater to me because I didn’t know one single follower beforehand. My family and friends know I blog but apart from the occasional post they do not read my blog.

I started this blog early last month at the suggestion of Lovely Husband as a way of getting my thoughts and ideas expressed. I never expected more than twenty followers by this time today!

So thank you lovely followers, you have really made me happy and rather excited 😁 But more than that, you have offered me friendship and community, most especially among autistic bloggers. God bless you all xxx

Following blogs

In currently following 336 sites! I sure that number will increase. I just can’t help myself, there are so many interesting people out there. I am interested to know how many blogs my followers follow and what they think is a healthy number before it all gets too much. By too much I think I mean when you feel overwhelmed. I guess that is individual preference. Forgive me, this is more a stream of consciousness than a well thought out post. Actually, that seems to be how I write most posts.

Susie’s blog party is a great idea. It’s been done before but it’s the first time I’ve heard of or experienced one. I do regular searches through WordPress reader but the party feels quite different as it feels like socialising without the all the usual sensory upheaval. It’s certainly keeping me entertained  😃

Returning to the following of blogs… There have been a few that I’ve unfollowed for one reason or another. As an autistic person I find some blogs very uncomfortable to look at, and some that that lower my mood too far. I have to protect myself. Yesterday I read a wonderful post and wanted to share with you. I hesitated over it but unsure why. When I revisited I realised there were flickering images. The first time I was too involved in the content to worry about it but once I noticed I realised I didn’t want to inflict that on to my followers or myself.

Thank you and welcome to my eight new followers that have popped over from the party. I hope you enjoy your visits here 🙂

I’d like to thank all my followers for the sense of community I feel. Good bless you all xx
