Hi Readers! Its been a while since I have done a general post about whats going on here at The Worry Games so I thought it was time.
What a year it has been! Last year at this time, I think I was pretty much just writing to myself, without a single reader to be found. My analytics were basically a flat line for a few months there and I admit that it was pretty discouraging at times. Then I stumbled upon a wonderful little thing called “Twitter” and that completely turned things around. Twitter gave The Worry Games the breath of life and I am so grateful for that.
Twitter has allowed me to “meet” some awesome people and get my blog name and posts out there. I have met other anxiety bloggers that have really impressed me with their point of view and writing style, and have humbled me quite a bit, actually. There is this amazing mental health community on Twitter that I never knew existed. I always thought Twitter was just about celebrities…I had no idea there was so much GOOD being done there and I am so thankful to my husband for encouraging me to give it a go. I was a bit nervous at first because I thought people would be mean and insulting but I have the greatest little community there and people are so supportive and encouraging. So if you are a part of that community….a huge thank you to you. You have done a lot for my blog and my spirit.
This year I also did an interview at a wonderful website called Sometimeslifeis.com. If you had told me a year ago, that a year later I will have been so beautifully featured on such an inspiring website, I would have thought you were crazy. But here I am, and it was a great experience and made me really proud. A big thank you to Roger Hoefel for asking me to be a part of his mission.
I started a Facebook Page this year that you can find here. I have 35 whole likes now and I am pretty jazzed about that. They are slow coming and each one is like a little victory! lol If you have liked my page….THANK YOU! 🙂
I feel like I have written some really great posts this year, that I am proud of. Okay, there have been a some that maybe are a little less than stellar but its all a learning process, right? I had no idea what it would take to put out worthy posts on a regular basis. I was a bit naive when I joined the blogging world, I have to say. But all that time and hard work is so worth it, and when I am done and I hit that “Publish” button, it is the greatest feeling of accomplishment. I still don’t have a great number of hits every day. I am pretty much just a little speck on the map of anxiety blogs out there. But just to know that I was able to take my thoughts and put them together in a package and send them out to the world on a quest to help somebody….its a pretty great feeling. 🙂
Thank you all for your support and I look forward to seeing what the next year brings us all. Today is the day after the Paris Attacks and I am fearful of what the next year is going to bring for us all. I hope and pray that at this time next year, the world is a more peaceful place than it is today.
Thanks for reading.
