This is unprecedented, unreal, unbelievable! To have reached 1000 followers on this blog of mine is truly humbling. If you had said to me, when I started uploading my ramblings, that I’d have reached a hundred followers I would have laughed. After that, I would’ve continued to face-plant my keyboard in the never ending search for inspiration.

But here we are, and I’m incredibly thankful for it. When I started writing this blog, I didn’t have a clear idea of what I actually wanted to do with it. It has certainly evolved from the haiku, clunky prose, and sparse verse of my past. The truth is the more I write on here, the more comfortable I become as both a blogger and a writer. It’s a lovely feeling, and as a community, you’ve all been wonderful to me – thank you.

*Gives you all an internet high-five*

That being said, I still have a long way to go! The good news? I have plans (muahaha) *rubs hands in anticipation*.  So yes, this blog post is a little bit more than a quick thank you, I have some stuff to announce.

Thank you for the Happiness! 500 Followers!

This is absolutely insane, I cannot believe that five-hundred people have chosen to follow my blog. When I started blogging in January I was apprehensive and very nervous with sharing my writing.

And then I got my first likes and followers and comments, all of them positive and welcoming. I am so glad to be a part of this community and I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for every single view, like and follow. You guys are the best!

So here comes a thank you Tanka:

Every follower
Lights a glistening beacon
Of great thankfulness
Deep in this happy writers
Heart. Thank you to everyone.

Thank you, everyone, I really mean it! 🙂

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Three times over!

A thank you and a cinquain.


Above: My face this morning.

Wow, just wow. Hello to the most wonderful followers/likers/commenters/viewers on WordPress, imagine my surprise this morning when I awoke to find that I have now hit three hundred followers. I can hardly contain my happiness, so I had to come and write a post to say thank you to every single person that visits this blog. You all keep me motivated and happy, and it’s wonderful to see people engaging with my stuff.

So here is a small poem in thanks to all you wonderful people.

Thank you,
Easily said.
But I say it with great
Appreciation in my heart,

Once again I just want to say thank you for reading, you all mean the world to me and continue to leave me humbled.

Milestone Met! Plus a Haiku.

Gee whiz folks! this is absolutely insane, one hundred whole followers! I mean that’s one hundred real people out there that actually follow this blog, that’s insane! I just wanted to say thank you, not only to the followers, but to every viewer, liker, commenter, I appreciate you all! You humble me.

Here’s a Haiku of appreciation:

I appreciate you,
That’s a big understatement;
You are all the best.

Once again, thanks to each and every one of you, I guess here’s to another hundred! 🙂

The Liebster Award

img_7493-01So, I guess I’m doing this on a technicality but… (that’s not a great way to start a post is it?.) I digress. The wonderful Yusra Gulab Jamman, who is by far one of my favourite poets on WordPress right now (check here to see why,) has nominated her entire fan-base for the Liebster award, how nice is that? So like a vulture perusing the great halls of WordPress I decided to leap upon this opportunity to put up something different on my Blog!

So I have gathered that these are the rules…

I just recieved a wonderful Valentine’s gift!

Today is that wonderful day where everything suddenly becomes so damn expensive! And though I think you should show your love for your partner every day of the year, there is always a certain anticipation of something special.

I am a massive, wussy sucker for thoughtful presents, and my wonderful girlfriend delivered just that when I woke up this morning.
