Before anyone panics upon seeing the title let me say this first: This blog isn’t going anywhere, I’m not leaving the fandom, my mom’s cancer is long gone, and my husband and I are completely fine! (Still unemployed, but fine!)
The other day, I was thinking about this blog, and how it’s grown. Sometimes I forget the growth that’s happened here because of how short-sighted I can be. I tend to only think about the blog in terms of how and when I need to get the next update done, if the story is going to right way, or if my artistic talent is up to snuff for what I want to do sometimes. I don’t really think about the numbers, or how old the blog is, or the insane amount of changes that have happened since I first started doing this.
But something prompted me to think about it yesterday, and I realized that I don’t think I express enough gratitude to you all, the followers, and I need to fix that.
I don’t think I can ever really vocalize how I feel about how FQC has grown in the last two years it’s been around. It definitely flew right past my expectations! And it all happened thanks to the people who took a chance on this blog, started reading it, started reblogging the updates, and even started donating to it recently. You guys have done so much for me and the blog, and I will always be grateful for how you all have impacted my life and what I want to do. If it weren’t for this blog’s success, I wouldn’t have started thinking that maybe, just maybe, I can do this comic thing.
I’ve learned from FQC that it can be hard, and you won’t see immediate turn-over. But if you keep working on it, keep showing that you’re trying, and that you’re not afraid to experiment, people notice. Sometimes it takes longer then most other projects, but when you’re putting your heart into something, you’ll attract the people you need to keep you going.
I am so very thankful for everyone who follows, and for the friends I have been able to make. You all gave me back my confidence. I have never before seen how my stories can impact people on such a big scale. The amount of love I have received since starting this has been humbling and very encouraging, and it boggles my mind when I think of how I’ve gone from struggling to not give up because the last update barely got 10 notes to just trying to keep up with the updates because the story’s gotten so intense!
So, thank you for being there for me for so long. I want every single one of you to know how much I love you, and care about you. I promise I will always have an ear to hear, and a pair of arms to hug you. It’s the least I can do for people who have helped me find what I’ve been looking for.
Again, thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I hope you all have a great day!!
PS, if you have anything to ever say to me about anything at all, the mod blog is right here.
