I Hit 5,000 Reads

I want to celebrate by sharing stories that I found interesting.

By Real PoeticPublished about a month ago Updated about a month ago 1 min read

I sat down on my staircase and opened up Vocal on my phone to see what’s going on in the community. I usually check my notifications first to read and comment on stories from creators that I love unless I’m online strictly to publish something.

After I was done, I clicked my stats out of normal habit and to my surprise I had just slid by five-thousand reads. I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than to show my support to some of the creators that help make Vocal a welcoming and engaging place to read and share work.

I am humbled and grateful for each and every read that I receive. No one is obligated to read anything that I write, so I don’t take it for granted.

Now enough about me…

Let’s get into it!

Have you read one of Lamar’s entries to the Neolomicro challenge? You definitely should if you haven’t already.

Lonzo published this poem today, and it is absolutely stunning in every way.

Cathy is such a wonderful poet that she made groceries sentimental.

Need to boost your spirit with a poem about fall? Check out this gem by Paul.

This poem by Dani has a great vibe with a very unique style.

    This is such a beautiful way to honour the people around you as a way to celebrate 5k reads!! That in itself is impressive but even more impressive that you are humble enough to not make this moment about you but more that you share it with others!! Really shows what a big heart you have! Amazing! 💚
