Likes is a sign of approval. They say, “Something about your post resonated with me. I’m letting you know that.” They’re not as engaging as a comment, which leads to conversations, or as gratifying as a subscription, which shows that someone liked what you posted enough to want to come back for more, but they’re nice to have.

And as of this morning, I’ve reached a very big milestone with the number of likes. Yes, that’s right, I’ve gotten to five-thousand likes!

Wow, you people are enthusiastic. I like it.

I’m very happy that I was able to make it to this milestone. I’ve mentioned it before, but when I first started out blogging, I didn’t get a lot of views, let alone likes, comments, or subscriptions. It was disheartening, logging in day after day, and seeing maybe a view or two every seven or eight days. At times like that, I thought about giving up blogging.

Call it stubbornness or ambition or just plain narcissism (I think all authors wanting to share their works with people have a bit of that in them), but I kept at it. And somehow, you all came. You liked, commented, subscribed. Heck, sometimes you even reblog. And a few of you even bought my books when I put them out.

And now this. After over five years of blogging, I’ve gotten five-thousand likes. Thank you. Thanks to everyone who’s liked the words I put out there in cyberspace, and thanks especially to nalindesignprofile, Victo Dolore, acidburnshorrorshow, and Joleene Naylor for giving me the final four likes necessary to get this far. I couldn’t have done it without you guys.

Well, that’s ll for now, folks. I’ve got a busy day ahead of me, as well as a busy rest of October. If there’s anything to post about, I’ll make sure to do so. Until then, have a great day, my Followers of Fear!
