  1. It’s like a snowball… you start accumulating them and then you really start to accumulate them! Congratulations on reaching this well-deserved milestone! The biggest takeaway I got from your blog is that blogging regularly leads to results. (Now if only I could implement it…)
    P.S. Nobody likes the Block Editor. I haven’t met anyone who actually likes these changes. Block Editor is not user friendly with the WP app so I will be switching permanently to desktop WP.

    1. Thank you so much! Yes consistency is key and I think I have gotten the most followers after blogging regularly for about an year.
      I like some features like the gifs you can add directly but I agree it is so not user friendly. I wish they had added the extra features and just kept the old editor. The block one is so complicated and uncomfortable to use.

      1. I was very disappointed to see the Block Editor today. It looks like we have no choice but to use it now. I really don’t have time to learn Block Editor *sigh* It also messes up blog posts on the reader where writing overlaps images (if using the app).

        1. I can’t use it properly on Chrome on my phone either. I truly don’t understand why we don’t have a choice especially when it seems like the majority of bloggers prefer not to use the block editor.

          1. Bloggers who prefer the previous classic editor: everyone
            Bloggers who prefer the new block editor: …… *crickets chirping*
            Talk about a company not listening to the people. WP needs to start listening to what the bloggers want!

            1. Yes exactly! And it’s not just with the block editor. There are so many features bloggers want or want to change that they just ignore. It’s absolutely ridiculous considering their platform only exists because of the bloggers that choose to use it.

  2. Congratulations!!!! You deserve every bit of this success. I don’t like to miss any of your blog posts, you write about topics are relatable and very close to my heart. Kudos, keep up the great work!! 🙂

  3. Keep making waves, Pooja!
    And we won’t ditch you (fingers crossed😊) I think everyone will get pretty busy soon too, now that things are turning back to normal.
    Your commitment to mental health issues remains an admirable aspect of you💚

  4. Wow such an inspiration Pooja you are😇🤞🏻touchwood!! The other day I was thinking I wish I knew someone whose got so much exposure and followers up on wordpress and there it is I came to know about this❤️❤️

  5. Hey, congrats on this achievement! It’s so good to see many people discovering your amazing and fun blog! I hope many more join your blogging community soon 🥳🥳
    P.S: you’re not alone when it comes to hating the block editor. It’s just very weird and annoying to write/edit a post in the app, which is why the website version is a 100 times easier to handle

    1. Thank you so much that truly means so much to me!
      Urghh don’t get me started on the Block Editor. I appreciate the new features but it is so difficult to use and I am honestly so done with it.

  6. Congratulations you deserve it. You’re very genuine and lovely person, hope it goes well for you returning to uni, especially during pandemic! Keep up the good works not easy finding genuine people al the best.

      1. Ah, thank you, after having such bad multiple allergies I really turned off food, now that I’m experimenting with different recipes I’m really enjoying trying new recipes. Thanks again.

  7. A big congratulations to you Pooja for 18k Followers and 4k followers on Insta . This is such an amazing milestone. You definitely deserve all of it and much more. You are an inspiration to many bloggers so keep blogging and keep growing. Cheers to many more Followers. Also all the best for your last year in university 🤗😀💯

          1. Because I have experienced your kindness. Do me a favor, don’t accept any awards durning school.. Honestly, those take way too much time… You can always go back to it if you need to. just think about it. ❤️

  8. Congratulations to the one whom i met first on WordPress 😍😍❤️😇💐💐💐
    Wishing you more and more success ahead.
    Stay safe, healthy and happy 😇😇

  9. All I can say is congrats congrats congrats Pooja! I literally remember your 17K post and now you’re on 18K!! Your blog is so amazing and you’ve inspired so many people (including me) good luck for the future!! 💗

  10. Thank YOU for writing for all of us! I really enjoy your blog and it makes me feel better too! I truly do appreciate it when you post about mental health. This is so very important. Many people are suffering today and it’s great to know you’re not alone, even if your mental health looks different than mine or my child’s. Keep up the great work! Put school first and then soar high!!!

    1. Aww thanks so much! Yes, spreading awareness about mental health is so important. The more people talk about it the less stigma there is and the more help people who need it can get.

  11. Congratulations on reaching this far! You deserve this. A newbie like me will never know if I can even reach a quarter of your followers lol

  12. Wow!! Well done to you Pooja, you certainly deserve to have so many readers as your content is ever-changing, always informative, beautifully written and inspiring. It seems like it was only a few weeks since we saw the 17K. Congratulations!!!

      1. You are most welcome. I shared your blog with my daughter. Similar to you, she is attending college and has a blog. However, she has difficulty growing her blog.
