Hello Amazing People!
I’ve got a new widget on my side bar and I honestly, really have no idea how I got here, but I’m just really thankful to the WordPress editorial team for picking my piece on 20 Signs You Really, Really Hate People and putting it on their Freshly Pressed list two days ago.
So thank you, WordPress.
And when I say WordPress, I don’t just mean the editorial team. I mean the entire WordPress community of blog and website owners, who have been so incredibly friendly and encouraging in their comments.
I try to reply all the comments I get as far as possible, both positive and negative, but there have been so many that I don’t even know where to begin or how to respond. So I really hope this huge thank you here is enough.
If I’ve learnt something from this, it’s that WordPress bloggers are an amazing bunch who are incredibly positive, supportive and vocal, and I’m really really thankful for all of you!
Most of my real-life friends probably have no idea what the big deal about being Freshly Pressed is, but to me, it’s such a massively big honour. Because for the past few months, I’ve been looking at Freshly Pressed blogposts, reading in awe, and wondering how I would ever make it up there.
The posts I’ve read have always been able to touch my heart (yesterday I just read one that had me bawling my eyes out), and it’s nice to think that maybe my blog managed to touch other people’s too. Not in a boo hoo emotional get-me-a-box-of-tissues kind of way, but more like a haha-omg-this-is-so-true kind of way. And I really hope I managed to do that.
To my new followers, I really hope I won’t disappoint with subsequent posts – I’ve got a few ideas up my sleeve for the month of November, and I only hope they’ll be as funny the ones I’ve done before (I’m probably failing at that with this post right now lol).
Okay I’ve never been good at the mushy stuff, so I’m just going to end here.
Thank you, again! And since my posts this week aren’t at all funny (i.e. this and my 3 Days in Siem Reap, Cambodia), here’re a few funny gifs to kick off your week.
