The title of this post kind of sounds like I am celebrating a 50th birthday, but I can assure you I am not. Still just 18. None of that internet nonsense where you think someone is a teenager and then BAM, they’re middle-aged.
As of four hours ago, I now have 50 fabulous followers!!! Thank you to each and every one of you who made the decision to follow my blog. I am so happy you loved my content enough to want to read more, and I see your follows as little reminders that sometimes forcing myself to step out of my comfort zone and try something new can have wonderful effects.
I would like to list all of my first 50 followers here, as you have brightened my day each time my phone went off (even in class . . .) notifying me that someone new had followed my blog 🙂 🙂 For anyone who doesn’t want to read a bunch of WordPress usernames (though I think you should), hope on down to the last paragraph.

I am still learning the ins and outs of WordPress, so I am sorry that I was not able to figure out how to put links to your profiles, but at least I can type so I could list all of you.
Once again, thank you for following me, for being that little ray of sunshine in my day, and for commenting when you do. It means so much to me, and I love finding your blogs through your follows. As a little thank you, I have written you a poem 🙂 🙂
Fifty of You
There are fifty of you out there,
none of whom I personally know,
but you are all passionate about something,
this your blogs all show.
All of you have read and followed me,
which means more than you might think,
and I never would have found any of you,
had I just written on paper with ink.
My blogging journey has only begun,
and I cannot wait for more;
I’ve found something I do just for me
that I absolutely adore.
Thank you again to all fifty of you
for clicking the little plus sign.
I cannot wait to get to know those
who have made my confidence shine.
