Recently the hits on my blog have gone way up. They've nearly doubled. I'm also getting way more blog comments than usual and I've noticed that I have thirty-two e-mail subscribers. W-O-W.
I'm not blogging for the numbers. I'm not looking to make money off of advertisements or anything, because quite frankly, advertisements annoy me. So you won't have to worry about that from me. I blog because I like blogging. I like it much better than keeping a journal or anything like that. And of course it's fun to share what's going on in my life with my family and friends, but my blog has grown to be more than just a public journal for extended family and close friends. In fact, most of my readers are people that I've never met in real life. Pretty cool, huh?
I like networking and meeting awesome, nerdy, bookish, online friends. I like finding new blogs and adding them to my Feedly. The internet can be a mine full of crap, but finding awesome blogs like the ones I follow is like finding a gem in the middle of all the nonsense.
So though I am blogging just because I like it, it is kind of cool to be able to say you have thirty-two e-mail subscribers and almost fifty unique visits a day. And not to sound cheesy or anything, but I really couldn't have done any of that without you, my faithful readers.
Thanks for the comments,

I am a 17-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
