I know that I have said this a gazillion times already but I just started being serious with the blog this March. Putting a counter and seriously joining linkys. I have commented on so many blog entries that my life since March is scattered on bloggers' comment pages. Little bits of me being exposed in a sentence or two or a paragraph. Stories of my life that I trusted to tell on complete strangers because they shared theirs with me thru their blogs.
Since March I have experienced a roller coaster of emotions too. From the blog that I am reading and from my post that I am sharing. Some are too heavy that I have to literally stop and recover. And some really made me cry. Some are so happy. Some are so lush, posh, funny, pretty and mostly cute.
Doing this I have only one goal in mind, getting in Tots100 500 ranks. Its so sweet seeing those badges with those numbers. I didnt got through my frist month of course. It is too far from my goal. I worked harder. Visiting more blogs, staying up all night commenting and joining more linkys. This of course made me anti social as I have to stay in front of the laptop all day and night. Thinking, breathing and thinking of the blogs every waking hours.
When the next ranking came out I am still not in it.
I didn't gave up and worked harder if there's such a thing. This time I even manage to make blog entries early and
forced requested husband if I can have a paid LJ. It is cheap but for us with financial worries it is a big deal. I am thankful for his support my husband. I promise him that I will stop with my insanity after I go to the 500.
I got in! Not only did i made it there I got 322! Yey!
To a lot of you those numbers are nothing. But to me these numbers are everything that i worked hard for. My rossette. My medal =)
But my family got sick. As in all of us. We got this tummy bug. All of us are scrambling to get to the toilet first. Good thing that my son has got his own potty!
The whole week I cant join my linkys and I cant comment and that is the end of me. And yet I am okay with it. I got into my goal and I gave it my all and I am so happy that I got in that position. I worked hard but I have to be true to my promise to my husband as well that I will go back to not being obsessed with blogging. That I am slowly doing. Joining less linky. Commenting on less blogs. There are just linkys that I really love that I cant say goodbye just yet. This ranking I will slide down but its okay. I am so happy to reach that high when what I really want is 500.
Thanks for everyone who helped me get in here. Thanks for new friends. I value you guys. You just dont know what you mean to me. I am not stopping. I am just slowing down to recover.
I went all out with this goal and I got the one thing that I want.
