I recently reached 1000 page views on The Alt Kryptonite and I thought that was a really awesome milestone for the blog! I am really happy with how it's turned out over the past month and there have been a lot of supportive and just awesome people who have helped me on this crazy thing called having a blog. I wanted to thank some people specifically for being super nice and optimistic:
Jesi Lea Ryan
I'd like to think you're my first author-friend because you were the first to give feedback and stuff. I'm sure you won't forget to be awesome. DFTBA!
Bethany Wiggins, Shelly Crane, and Lila Felix
My other author-friends who have shown me great positivity and given me enthusiasm in the blog. You guys are wonderful to talk to!
Teresa Mary Rose (Readers Live 1000 Lives) & Gloria (Globug and Hootie Need a Book)
Along with my author-friends, you guys (I consider) are my blogger-friends. I've talked to you guys and shared connections that bring inspiration and joy.
Family has brought the most support (not excluding the gift cards) and has just been super supportive. Dad, thanks for the "talking to people" advice when I was super stuck on what to say. Also, you're the best supporter and Minecraft buddy!!! :-)
Everyone Who's Just Talked to Me
I love tweeting people and talking to them. Super awesome (Katelyn Bandy)!
I recently watched (live-streamed) the "Event of Awesome" hosted by John and Hank Green (the Vlogbrothers/Nerdfighters) at Carnegie Hall. John Green gave a talk about his life and how that led up to The Fault in Our Stars. He said:
"If I had been alone in the abyss of myself, parts if TFIOS would have never existed.......I just want to say at the outset: thank you, because this collaboration..."
The point I got from his whole speech was that without other people (collaborations), nothing can be truly successful. My version of successful is not the same as writing a book, selling it, etc. but sharing, interacting, and connecting with other people. You guys are the people I am collaborating with, and I intend to continue to do so.
So thank you.
In honor of you guys AND the 1 month "Blogoversary", I've linked something I wrote below (It's a comedy) and a GIF that my friend made of me.....(thanks Zoe, I appreciate it)
Enjoy! *hands you a slice of cake*
