July First.

Hi everyone!  Today I'm going to do something a little different since this is the official end to my first official month of blogging.

I started blogging last month as something to do.  A way to keep me busy during the summer since I don't have a job, and getting one doesn't look like it's going to happen soon.  I live in a tiny little town and the only jobs that are available are nurses, truck drivers and gas station jobs I don't know about until they are already filled.  I mean, if I don't have a job, I don't have money, so I don't go anywhere.  How am I supposed to know that the gas stations are hiring?  Joking.  The positions fill fast so you get an application and take it back the next day and it's no good.  I'm branching out.  I WILL have a job with insurance before mine runs out in November.  I hope.  lol

That's not what I'm here about though.  I kind of got off on a tangent.  Sorry about that.  :)  Back to what I was saying!  When I started blogging, I had zero followers (as most of you did), I had zero expectations.  I just knew that I not only love doing my nails, but I loved obsessing over them.  Blogging seemed like a good way to quench my thirst for my nails always looking shiny and new.

Now, a month later, I have 42 followers.  That is 42 more than I ever expected!  In one month.  I am astounded!  I know I'm not one of those must read blogs.  My pictures aren't that great.  My art could use years more worth of practice.  However, I have gotten an overwhelming amount of support and encouragement from this community.  I am quickly gaining confidence in what I am doing as this month goes on and you, my amazing followers, keep helping me and encouraging me to grow and evolve.  I really didn't expect this feeling.  I am finding myself wanting to try harder designs, wanting to try brands I'd never thought much of and wanting to dig deeper into this sordid world in which we live.

For that, I thank all of you!  You have all been amazing.  I know that a lot of bloggers have giveaways and things when they reach this point.  Truthfully, I wish I could.  There are so many new collections I wish I could give to you!  How it is though, I just can't afford it right now.  When I do my first giveaway, and all of them after that, I want them to be amazing.  I want them to show how truly grateful I am to have all of you here.  That being said, I am collecting goodies, and I hope to have them ready by 100 followers.  Should I get there.

Anyway.  This is super long.  And I'm sorry.  lol  I just wanted to share how moved, how grateful, and how thankful I am for each and every one of you.  THANK YOU!

If you got this far, thanks for looking!  lol
