This is my 100th post. I guess that you would say that this is a milestone.
I'm actually surprised that I've reached my 100th post. Last summer I abandoned it, ignored it, and changed the subject whenever my dad brought it up. There's really only two reasons that I still have it.
Last summer I read Do Hard Things. Alex and Brett Harris mentioned a blog called Bloom. When I finished the book I looked up Bloom on their website and started reading. On one of the posts I saw a comment by someone named Paper Bird and Little Fairy. I clicked on the name and started reading their profile. I freaked out.
We were so alike! We listened to the same music, read the same books, did the same things. I wanted to tell them, but I didn't know them. That was the first blog that I ever read by someone that I didn't know.
I eventually commented on something, telling them who I was and everything. I felt like such a stalker at first. They commented back on one of my posts, I started following them, they started following me, and we talked all the time.
These girls are the only reason that I continued blogging. They were my first followers who wasn't my youth pastor or related to me. I wished so badly that I knew them.
I loved the concept of their blog from the very start. I'm really close to my sister Anna so the idea of sharing a blog with a sister was something that I loved.
I still love their blog to pieces. It's one of my favorites, and they're some of my favorite people that I don't know. Their comments and our conversations last year kept me blogging. Knowing that there was someone there who wanted to read what I wrote kept me writing.
Thank you so much girls! I love you both so much, in a non-creepy sister sort of way. I hope that someday I'll be able to meet you. I'm looking forward to it.
