Caught in Numbers 

No matter who you are, we have all been caught up in numbers somehow. Whether that is how many A:s you got last semester, your weight or how much you have in your bank. It does not make it easier as social media grows bigger and bigger.
Now, on top of other problems you get caught up on how many people followed you, how many friends you have and how many people liked your last post.

When you have a blog, one question that you inevitably get is How much traffic do you get?

The reason I am writing this is just some days ago I got a message from a person I have only known for a glitch in time, saying that they love reading my blog and that it might even mirror the kind of personality traits I have. That made me happy. It has happened sometimes before when someone unexpected says something unexpected about my blog and what I write and honestly, that is the purpose of me writing and this blog.

What I want to try to do is to share my thoughts and feelings about somethings that I know I am not alone with (sometimes I am very alone in my sentiments, but that is not my point), trying to show whoever might be reading my blog and mysteriously clicked on the link and got here that they are not alone and that you have the power within you to do what you want to do with your life.

I started this blog first and foremost to have a creative outlet; somewhere to write, somewhere to express my thoughts, somewhere where I can just spew out whatever is happening in my head even though I am definitely not getting the traffic some people might think I am. But it is not about how many people have reached you and skimmed through your words. It is not about the numbers. It is about whether you moved something in someone, whether you got them to think. It is not and never will be the numbers that dictate what I put out there and what I’m saying. It will always be raw and you will never be alone, I am there with you.
