4000 Followers – Random Comment Party

This is nuts.

A few days ago, my blog made it to 4000 followers. Now, I realize this number is a bit fake because there are never that many people who read, like, or comment on my posts. There aren’t even 100.

But still, 4000 is a ridiculous number.ย I remember when I had 120 followers and thought I needed to hire someone to reply to my comments for me.

This is the part where I’m supposed to say I can’t believe that many people have clicked “Follow” or found interest in my blog, but I’m not going to do that. Of course you followed me. I’m great.

Seriously though, thank you for all the support. I really do appreciate it. This blog has been more than I ever thought it would be and a lot of the credit goes to all of you.

To celebrate, leave a random comment below. This will be in honour of all the random spam messages I’ve received over the years. Your comment can be about anything. Be creative.

Thank you.

About Paul

I think of my blog as an all-you-can-read buffet. There's something for everyone and complimentary mints at the door as you leave.

    Congrats, Paul! I remember when I started following you at 1000 follows and so proud how far you’ve come. Your posts never cease to make my day, and I hope you continue to put out great stuff in the future (I know you will!).

    Random comment: we need a pizza party to celebrate! Call dibs on the pineapple pizza!

    My judgement might not be the most sound currently as I’ve recently subscribed to 3 different Kulning channels on YouTube and have zero Scandinavian relations whatsoever (as an 18 year old Indian girl), but wooo yeah you deserve it!

  13. Wooo well done, Paul! As always, love your work.

    Since I have a chance to write a random comment (like I need a reason) I’ll just let you know what I’ve got on my mind, that isn’t really enough for me to write a blog post on, but I still want to share it with someone.

    I started my day off really badly, and all day I felt like everything was wrong. I was miserable, my life sucks, etc. Then I went to the gym and now I’m like “oh, never mind. Everything’s okay”. I’m just really melodramatic and I keep forgetting.

      Hey Rosie! Don’t worry, it’s ok to feel like that. I do too sometimes. I think it’s probably an age thing that we’ll probably overcome eventually when we feel like we know what we’re actually doing in the world. Good hear you were feeling better though!

      Thanks for all the support from the other side of the world ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m going to sympathize with the fake follow number that really never represents the likes and comments you actually get. I have at most 20 people who read my blog, but about 200 followers?? So, it’s a very odd world out there…

      Extremely odd world. I have some people who follow me and then I go look at their blog and they don’t even write in english. I wonder if they even understand me.

    I wonder if surrealist authors have a better grip on reality then the rest of us? They say you need to have a lot of imagination to understand reality. Funnily enough doesn’t sound like a realist who wrote that. Oh and of course, congratulations! Your very right, you’re pretty great ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Thank you! WordPress has featured 3 of my blog posts in the past which translated into a bunch of new followers. If it weren’t for that, I wouldn’t even be at 1000. It’s all luck!

    People say that, when life hands you lemons, you should make lemonade. But that’s stupid. Because life didn’t hand you water and sugar with those lemons. All you’re gonna get if you squeeze those lemons is some wicked sour juice.

    I ran into a bookshelf, tailbone first, and collapsed to the ground, writhing in agony. My little brother thought it was hilarious.

    Particularly liked ‘So, You Call Yourself A Blogger?’ and ‘Reflecting on Four Years of Blogging.’
    “I canโ€™t write half a post, walk away, and come back the next day and finish it. It has to be in one take,” and “If I sit down to write and I feel like Iโ€™m forcing the introduction out of me, then I close my laptop and go to sleep.” Good lines(:

    My random comment would be ‘Keep calm and eat pizzas.’ (I never get bored of eating them.)
