While I was looking over my website the other day, and trying to think how I could maybe edit the page or alter its visual layout to make it look better, or perhaps more welcoming or maybe, God forbid, professional. I happened to glance upon the beginning of this adventure the point where it all began some eight months or so ago with my very first post and it really got me thinking about a number of things…..
Firstly how far this little page, this idea had grown from being a single voice shouting into the dark abyss of the internet to where it is now, when I began this website and the associated social media pages that go with it. I was using the blog as a way of journalling how I manage to navigate the difficulties, and the way I see the world as someone on the Autism spectrum, and maybe raise some awareness of Autism Spectrum Disorder, while working on getting my new book of poetry (or scribbles as I call them, ready to be sent to the publisher. This is no small feat, as I’m dyslexic and have had to get the amazing Mrs Bob to proofread and correct all the errors, of which I’m sure there were many.
Secondly, little did I know that in a few short months that nearly half a million of you lovely people would check out my blog. That has really blown me away. I never thought that anyone would be interested in the ramblings of a forty year old Aspie and his mundane little life in the south west, I would, however, like to take this opportunity to say a very heartfelt thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings and even replying to them.
Finally a big thank you to all the followers on my social media pages (again I can’t believe how many of you there are) for all the hard work each and everyone of you put in by sharing, commenting and generally trying to help me in raising awareness of Aspergers and Autism Spectrum Disorder in general. This really is half the struggle in this day and age, and I really couldn’t do it without the love and support of certain people so a personal thank you to my long suffering wife Mrs Bob, my close friends N,T and C and also to each and every one of you. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your lives.
I would also on a separate note like to point out that this particular rambling is also a very special milestone one, it’s nearly my 100th posting…. here’s to many more.
