Dear friends, the time has come. I have enjoyed your company and commitment to my posts for almost four years now. This is my second site I’ve created and I know the majority of you from the first blog I had.

It has been a privilege and honor that you would either like what I write or simply read over what I write and try and humor me. Whatever the situation I hold you in the highest regards.

I’ve made some of my best friends here. While others don’t seem to be so engaging. I have thought long and hard about this and have concluded that my best friends, whom I cherish, here on this site, who like and comment, are being outnumbered by inactive accounts or people who aren’t serious about the blog they’ve created.

Friends, please understand people I share these writings with are worth more than gold to me. They validate feelings and emotions that don’t make me feel so alone in the world.

My friends uplift me and devote 5 seconds to read what I post here. What I write may indeed be saturated in misspellings and grammatically incorrect bullshit. But it is what I do.

Therapeutically I have never undertook an assignment like this. Yet it helps. My friends help me and make me feel appreciated just as much as the casual reader who likes my posts.

I’ve become familiar with the people who have been liking my posts. I remember you. I thank you. Even if you just read and don’t like my posts I still appreciate you. Yet I must clean this blog up.

I can’t in good conscience have 200 followers and only 20 people like my material. That actually deters me from pursuing something very helpful psychologically.

Now you may think it a little rash but I will be dropping some followers here in the near future. If you have been reading and liking my material fear not. If you’ve been reading and not liking my material, I would kindly ask you to depart.

Yet even still, if after I eliminate certain followers or you choose to leave on your own, if you want to stop by or read or comment then please do not hesitate. I want to grow as a writer.

I need friends and constructive criticism. Constructive mind you. I will not soil my friends and readers with nonsense that need not be said. So in two weeks I’m going to start cleaning my followers list up so that the number can truly represent my value as a writer and I can have a safe space to write all my thoughts down.

In truth I love you all and I thank you again for reading. It has been an honor that such a novice such as myself could be appreciated by so many wonderful people.

Thank You,

  1. I appreciate you for writing this post & believe me, I totally understand. Please don’t ever let yourself become too concerned with spelling & Grammer. The point is to simply exhale by getting out what you need to say. I’m an English major & due to my seizures, I can’t remember how to spell words I’ve used my entire life. The important thing is the therapy writing provides you which is a huge part of why I share.

  3. Totally understand my friend. In fact, as someone who has a high proportion of fake/spam accounts that follow my blog, I applaud your endeavour to take the time to remove them.
    I just hope I make your cut as I certainly do enjoy reading your work πŸ‘πŸ–€
