Hey there, my fantastic 5,000 Medium followers! It's time to give you all a virtual high-five and a big, heartfelt thank you! 🎉🙌

Now, let’s take a moment to appreciate those active folks among you — the true MVPs who keep the party going! 🎈🔥

Because, let’s face it, out of this wild bunch of 5,000, we know there are around 100–250 of you who are like my ride-or-die squad on Medium. You know who you are! 🙌

To my active followers: You rock my virtual world! Your likes and shares fuel my motivation like nothing else. Without your engagement, I’d probably be writing blog posts for my cat. 🐾

So, a special shout-out to each and every one of you who regularly show up, share your thoughts, and make this Medium journey an absolute blast. Your support means the world to me, and I’m grateful to have you by my side.

From 0 to 5000

I hopped on the Medium train back in September 2020, but I was just lurking in the shadows. It wasn’t until May 2021 that I finally mustered up the courage to start writing.

Now, here’s where the fun begins. Hold on to your hats! It took me a whole year — yes, 365 days — to hit that glorious milestone of 1,000 followers.

I was like the tortoise in the race—slow and steady. But hey, progress is progress.

But guess what happened next? In just one more year, I skyrocketed from 1,000 to a jaw-dropping 5,000 followers!

But hey, I’m not here to question it. I’m here to celebrate it! To my incredible 5,000 followers, you guys are the real MVPs. Thank you for hopping on this crazy train with me.

Who knows what kind of adventures await us in the future?

My writing routine

So, check it out: I’m not your everyday blog guy. Nope, I’m a once-a-week kind of wordsmith. And you know why? Drumroll, please, because I’ve got a full-time job on my plate!

And sometimes freelance work too!

Yeah, that’s right. While some spend their weekends binge-watching Netflix or perfecting…
