Ahhhhh, I see grasshopper.
Gail Boenning

Gail, you read my mind. I am new to Medium and just published my first post this past Wednesday (The Real Journey Begins with ‘I Quit’). I shared the post on social media along with the fact that I had just started a blog where said post could be found/shared, and a funny thing happened… on FB I received over 50 likes! Haha! That was awesome and truly enough inspiration for me.

Then, to my dismay, the stats on Medium showed something like 13 views, 6 reads, 3 shares?? Not sure how that adds up.

In the end, I love what I wrote because it was dying to get out of my head. If only one person reads my writing and likes it, or not, I am happy knowing that it was read.

There’s just something about your work being read that adds the cherry on top, right?

I look forward to following you all!

Like what you read? Give Charlotte Ayala a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
