Thank you all for making December the most successful month for NoMoreMovies yet. A perfect way to conclude the first six months of my little pet project! This creative endeavour has been a pleasure every step of the way. Even though I feel like I’m only getting warmed up, I want to thank you – my dear readers – for your early support.
Everyone loves to hear some encouraging words, especially if you’re putting yourself “out there”. Some of my regular readers (and close friends) enjoyed my posts and urged me to go on. Thank you for those kind words! You know who you are!
Stats & Stuff
When I started this little adventure of mine, I was not convinced ANYONE would care for my writings. Much to my surprise I watched the number of readers and Facebook-followers increase month after month.
So what do I get for replacing a few months of passive entertainment with a bit of creativity? Well, here goes:
In short: a lot more than I had hoped for!
The Language Issue
Back when I started NoMoreMovies, several people urged me to write my posts in Dutch. They argued that you cannot reach the same level of quality as when writing in your native language. Going for English also meant I would exclude some people around me that are not fluent in it. Deciding on the language was difficult.
I knew they were right but at the same time I was hoping NoMoreMovies would become an outlet for positive ideas and bringing people together. I took a change and went for English.
I am so happy I did!
During the first six months I got visitors from over 40 countries! That’s right, fourty!
Imagine my surprise when Japan, South Africa, Russia, Brazil and Saudi Arabia popped up in the list!
How awesome is that! Thanks!
We’re only getting warmed up! 😉
Life is short but you are in control!
All you have to decide is, is what to do with the time that is given you.
At any given time you can make changes for the better.
