Apologies to the linguists amongst (← say those two words five times really fast!) you that excel in the use of Latin if I have thoroughly bodged up the appearance of my title, I just wanted to add a bit of pomp to these proceedings to celebrate the creation of post number 100 here at the Forge. To add to that notion we have a bit of a triple celebration going on as we have achieved the completion of a trio of milestones.
Since the inception of this site I have now managed to produce copious quantities of word waffle as well as prattle on for a century of pages dedicated to all of the wonderful subjects that sit on the shelves of this archive forged from my reverie. More amazingly, I have gained the attention of many of you fine folks who have ventured here to have a gander at the words and writings that I have to offer. To sum it up and boil it down to pure numbers (and who doesn’t like statistics, right?), here are the milestones that have all converged together at roughly the same time.
- During the latter days of March 2016, from that sunny afternoon that the fires of the Forge were first set alight, I have completed and published a grand total of 100 posts.
- Very recently, from the swathe of talented creators and writers that make up our community, just over 300 of you have chosen to follow these pages.
- Combining all of your recognition together from the lands of Facebook, Twitter and WordPress, there are now over 1000 fantastic folks that I can humbly acknowledge as followers of Forged From Reverie.
Thank you to all of you for choosing to acknowledge and appreciate what I have done, for taking the time to read my words, for commenting to add to the conversation, for sharing my posts as well as your own works with me and for just being all around top notch people, so much in fact that I would gladly shake the hand of each and every one of you.
There is also an exceptional selection of you that deserve even more than that, alas the borders and distances of our world continue to stifle our personal connectivity, impeding our potential for some splendid finger fondling (still referring to the handshake). Instead please accept my utmost gratitude and know that I will continue to be fervently grateful for who you are and what you do, no matter how inconsequential you consider it to be.
If any of you would like to connect with me elsewhere in the domains of the internet then you can do so at the following:
Facebook – If you have a Page of your own I would be happy to oblige.
Twitter – Feel free to follow the Forge and I shall do so in kind.
Google+ – Any and all support is welcome.
Once again, gratitude to all of you and I look forward to connecting with you all in whatever way you choose.
Forged From Reverie.
