My blog just passed the 100-follower milestone this week, which is pretty amazing to me. I never expected anyone outside of a few family members to read any of my posts–and I even have trouble getting them to follow me. 🙂
This blog has come a long way from the single follower it had back in December, and I am grateful to everyone who has visited. My previous efforts at writing blogs usually began with a burst of output that slowly trickled down to the occasional post before finally becoming the internet version of a ghost town. This time, however, your readership has motivated me to continue producing content. It really does make a difference when you know that your writing is finding an audience, and I have all of you to thank for that.
But more than getting my own writing out there, I’ve also discovered some awesome blogs that I now follow and I have enjoyed interacting with bloggers in the community who share my interests. It has been a great experience.
To celebrate my milestone, I’ve decided to heed the advice of some of my fellow bloggers on how to build my audience by creating a Facebook page as a supplement to this blog. I resisted having a Facebook page for the longest time, but I figure the time has come to give it a go. In addition to showcasing my own posts, this page will enable me to spotlight posts of interest from my fellow bloggers, and I also plan to share other relevant items that may not be right for the main blog, as well as additional photos related to my travel posts.
If you’d like to follow me on Facebook, you can do so by clicking the ‘like’ button in the right column, or you can check out the page at https://www.facebook.com/michaelanthonyrappa.
Thank you once again for your readership!
