It’s become customary for me to chart milestones on The Comic Vault and I’m happy to say I’ve reached another one with 700 followers! It came around a lot quicker than I expected, but all I can say is that I’m grateful for everyone who continues to read, like and comment on my articles. If anyone finds comfort in my words, or is able to learn something new about the comic industry then I’d say that I’m doing my job. To mark this new milestone, it’s inspired me to pursue another one of my passions with a seperate blog.
A year ago I decided to explore my passion for comics by creating my own website. I didn’t know how it would go or if people would even want to read it. All I knew is that I loved comics and I wanted to write about characters I connected with and stories that made me happy. Today marks the one year anniversary of The Comic Vault and it’s become bigger than I could have hoped for. I’ve achieved goals, discovered new characters, increased my knowledge and become even more passionate about comics.
Being connected more than ever means brands are battling with each other to get their content shared with the wider world. Whether it’s posting on your blog, or sharing competitions on social media, you’re determined to get the kind of audience engagement that matches the quality of your content. But staying relevant can be difficult when the average consumer is bombarded with new articles and videos every day.
Recently, I hit 400 followers and I wanted to thank everyone new who’s come across The Comic Vault. As part of a cathartic process and because I want to keep the topic going about depression in young men, I’ve been giving insights into my personal life. Back in January, I posted an article about how I was feeling very low in myself. I didn’t have a job, I had feelings of worthlessness and I felt trapped inside a rut I couldn’t break out of.
Writteningeek has nominated me for the Liebster award and I wanted to thank her for the kind surprise. As I’ve said in the past, it’s great that people are responding to what I’m writing. Even though March has been a quieter month for posting I’m grateful for everyone who has looked over The Comic Vault and find’s something worthwhile.
I’ve recently hit 300 followers and as grateful as I am, I wanted to do more than just say thank you. I want to share as much as I’m able with my readers because they inspire me to keep doing what I’m doing. Two months ago I admitted that I’ve suffered from anxiety for years and it’s affected a lot of my relationships. I wanted to give you an update on how I’m feeling.
It’s only been a month and I’ve been nominated for my third award with the Blogger Recognition Award! I’d like to thank GamersUnitedGG for the nomination. Lita has only been here a week, but she’s already demonstrating why she’s got the potential to be a great blogger. Be sure to check out her thoughts on upcoming games.
Just over two weeks ago I started this blog and the reception has been unlike anything I imagined. I’ve hit 100 followers and been nominated for two blogging awards. To thank everyone for the support I’ve decided to share something deeply personal about myself as a way of really understanding me. I’ve suffered from anxiety and low self-esteem for the past ten years or so. It’s made it hard for me to meet new people, believe in myself and to form a lasting relationship with someone.
All I can say is I’m blown away by the reaction I’ve got for this blog so far. The surprises keep on coming with being nominated for a One Lovely Blog Award by Michel over at Raistlin0903. Thanks for nominating me and I’ve really enjoyed reading your movie reviews. My favourites have been on Batman: The Killing Joke and Doctor Strange, so keep it up!
