Hello, I'm new here

You may have noticed the new blog stylings!

What do ya think?!
I wanted to wait until some awesome benchmark number of posts to unveil this, but hey 464 is close enough.
Yep, that's right.
I have written almost 500 blog posts for you to read.

In 2010 when I started the blog , I read a lot of other big bloggers' words of wisdom. 
They said things like:
 " Write for you, not for everyone else."
" Have good content."
"Don't worry if you don't have a lot of readers or followers, keep writing, they will come."
One blogger said she wanted to give up after a few months because she had only reached 100 followers and became discouraged.
Well..... it's been 4 years now.....and I still haven't reached that.

But give up?
No. I will not.
I do feel like I am writing for the cats sometimes and that no one is actually reading.
That's when I have to remind myself why I am here and that it's not a competition. 
This was something that I decided I wanted to do and it makes me feel good. 
I like that I can look back in time and see what I was up to or thinking at that moment. 
It's like my own online diary. 
Or a brain that doesn't forget.
I mean seriously,after everyone left Myspace I needed somewhere to publicly express myself! 
Am I right? Or am I right?
But I am human and of course I have the innate goal of becoming popular and getting voted Homecoming Queen Blog Genius. 
Then quitting my day job and living off of a cushy income solely supplemented by my blogging ways.
Obviously, I need a little help though.
So, please share my blog if you like it.
Please comment on posts if you have something to say.
Please leave me a message and let me know what it is you LIKE or don't like, for that matter, about my blog.
What would you like to see more of?
Or am I just perfect the way I am?

Thank you to all my friends and readers.

You make me want to run into traffic a little less and enjoy life a little more.

I just started following you and I enjoy reading your posts. I've always been terrible at commenting on things though, I really need to get out of that! Keep up the blogging! :)
