Six months.

The time flies so fast… Today is six months since the first post on My Inner Mishmash. I can’t quite believe it! It definitely doesn’t feel like this!

I’m very happy I’m here, and that my safe space is here, and that finally, there is a place online I can really call mine, and safe. The idea that I could start a blog in another language seemed crazy to me, even for a while after I’ve already created this blog. But now I know it was the step in a definitely right direction. It feels so anyway. I also feel like it’s the most successful of my blogs in terms of reaching the audience. I don’t know how many readers, followers or commenters a typical six-month-blog gets and whether I am one of those or get more or less views, I do know though that none of my previous blogs had gotten as many people reading as this one, for various reasons, but mainly because I was blogging in quite niche places – our Polish blind communities online – where there was a slight chance anyone else could find me, other than the members of the community, unless I told them the URL, which really sucked, but a huge advantage of it was that everything was completely accessible. And with my previous WordPress blog, I failed completely at setting it up properly so that neither people could find me, nor I could actually write a single post without hours of torment, hassle, rage and frustration preceeding its publishing, because it was so unaccessible for me. If not the fact that a part of me is phlegmatic after my Dad, so I can be pretty determined and patient if I really want something, I’d surely not exist there for THREE years! 😀 I think that even if I paid someone to set up things for me and make it all polished technicaly, I wouldn’t get very many people to read my posts and certainly not 195 followers. ANd after all, I write partly for others here, because if I want to do it just for myself, I can do it in my diary. SO, yeah, I’m so very happy that my efforts aren’t pointless and that I seem to finally have settled somewhere.

I also hope that if you read my posts, you find something that can affect you in any positive way – I’d love to hear from you about how they affect you – and that you enjoy being a part of My Inner MishMash, regardless of how long you’re here.

I want to thank each one of you – those who follow my blog, read, like or comment my posts. I’m so happy you are here, and I hope you’re glad too. Particularly, I want to thank my regulars – thanks so so much to all of you for sticking with me and supporting me, it means A LOT to me, and it is hugely appreciated.

And, of course, Misha is very very grateful too for all his peep friends and pet friends, and for all his silent audience. He is so happy that some other beings finally treat him and his problems seriously.

A thank you post.

It’s been over two months since I started blogging here on My Inner MishMash and loving it. But I’m more than sure I would quit it already if you, my readers, wouldn’t encourage me with your comments, likes and follows, ’cause writing just for myself is what I’ve been already doing in my diary so wouldn’t be appealing at all online. I’m so glad you like my writing and would like to thank all of you for visiting my mish-mashy world, everyone of you my readers and (71 now already) followers. And most of all, all those of you who leave me all those interesting, constructive, encouraging and supportive comments, because of your time and engagement you put in. Thanks so much to all of you.

Also, if you have any feedback, ideas, questions… I don’t know, anything about this blog you’d like to share and you think it could contribute to its development, of course I’ll be more than happy to hear your suggestions.

Other than that, I know it’s pretty normal on blogs, whether beginning or established, that the amount of followers is bigger than commenters, but still… I’m always very curious of people as individuals. So I’d really really like to hear from you and about you, if you’ve never commented on here before. I’d love to hear your story and learn a little bit about you, as well as to hear your opinion about my humble blogging attempts, what do you like here the most and what made your decision to follow me? You’re more than welcome to share your thoughts, no matter if many or just a few words.

So yeah, thanks again to all of you, my lovely readers, I hope you feel well in My Inner MishMash and like it here. 🙂
