What would it take for you to consider yourself a “successful blogger”? Is that something you strive for?

It all depends on your definition of "successful blogger" and the reason why you created your blog. I started my blog almost as a lark or an experiment. I wanted to start writing and I wanted to see if I could develop the discipline to write on a daily basis. Enjoying it the way I do has been a fantastic surprise and making the friends that I have, has made it beyond special.

Since I started my blog with a set of pretty low expectations I would consider my blog to be successful because I have been writing every day for the past two and a half years and I enjoy it more today than I did when I first started. The fact that my therapist broke up with me because my writing had given me the stability and the space to put my anxieties, my worries, my excess thoughts and my hangups so that I felt better, proves to me that writing every day is one of the best decisions that I have ever made. So in my opinion, I am a successful blogger and I am a very lucky person to have found a very nurturing environment filled with such lovely people and wonderful friends.
