It’s been a slow ride, but as of yesterday, Grubbs ‘n Critters has officially hit the 100 WP followers mark; with Andrew, author of Great Thoughts being the latest and 100th follower of my blog! Whatever made you hit follow, thank you for you are the special blogger that sealed my 100!


My current tally as of today stands at a nice number of 105 in total for my blog and 158 followers on Twitter. At this stage, I couldn’t be more grateful and thrilled at how far we have come along. To date, I have more than 13.7K views with 5.4K visitors and to me that is HUGE! So thank, thank you, thank you!

Mucho Gracias to all my followers and loyal readers. Thank you for being a part of Grubbs ‘n Critters for you have inspired me to continue writing and making me feel like a million dollars. And I can’t say “Thank You” enough.

This has been a small milestone for me and apart from Andrew, I also like to highlight a few other recent followers in the past week for you to check out:

The blogging community has been amazing and I do hope you’ll keep coming back. Nothing makes me happier than being able to read your comments and letting me know of your feedback (especially on gremlins on my site which I otherwise am not aware of). There is so much to learn!

Speaking of learning, I also learnt that some of my posts had got more than 100+ likes which I think is an insane numbers of likes. As you know, I am not able to track the “likers” as I get none of those free and convenient WordPress features because I’m self-hosted…so I have noooo clue who the “likers” are. I am inclined to assume that they could just be bots or “trigger-likers” as the page-view numbers were nothing to shout about.

Regardless, seeing a spike in likes always amuse me and these are some of my posts with crazy Likes numbers:

The last one was a little weird to me; I was effectively saying that I’m going off the radar for a while and I get “Likes”. Hmmmm. I think I’ll go with the idea that they (or the bots) like my photos, instead.

Otherwise, this has been a great journey and I hope to get many more followers along the way. Have I mentioned that there’ll be some award nominations coming up from my end? Look out for it as there’s a chance that I’ll be nominating YOU, so please do continue to be on my radar! And if you haven’t yet, come give me a nudge. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m baking to celebrate. The house is smelling like heaven. Here’s to all of you and once again.  You all make me feel like a kazillion** dollars!
