Sometime this week, Waldina.com hit 1,000 subscribers! It was something that I never really focused on as a goal, but all the same, I am really excited, very proud, and quite humbled. I have long insisted that the tagline for this website should be:
Something for everyone, everything for no one.
Meaning, you are probably not going to agree with the cultural significance of every profile I post, but you will agree with some and you will learn some new ones.
I started this website as an exercise for myself. I was (and still am) overwhelmed with the negativity on the internet and shining light on bad people and their bad behavior. I had a short list of people that I found inspiring, quotes that I found meaningful, media that spoke to me, and objects that I found beautiful. It took a while to fall on the format of celebrating the individuals who inspire me on their birthdays, but it seems to be the best. It keeps a random mix. Each month, I have also been attempting to do an additional series of posts, currently it is “Words To Live By”. I need a series for April. Ideas? Right now, I am thinking of it being “Blogs I Love”. Each day of April, I will profile a blog/instagram account/website/podcast that inspires me.
Again, thank you! This little exercise in my positivity has resonated with one thousand people enough for them to sign up to get a daily dose. Who would have thought that chronicling what inspires me would inspire me?
