Aaa-ha-haaa, yes. My 42. Cyber Corps is growing STRONG. Here we are at the 200th follower. Yes, there is a call for others to “enlist via email” to my army and the number is around the 300, but we are monitoring the “follow” button and the rewards that come when someone uses it. I had to clarify that, so nobody gets confused with all of the numbers on my blog.
I feel I should say something, maybe a quote or a verse, but I am speechless right now. I don’t know how to react to this. For weeks I saw this coming and I was growing happier by the second and finally it happened. Someone stumbled over my blog, read a story and decided he likes what I wrote. Isn’t everything happening by chance? You tell me.
Because I started this, I feel like I need to do it again and show how much do I appreciate my “brothers in quill”. You are all soldiers now, and some promotions are in order.
I hereby promote Oh Brother to a Sergeant First Class for interesting post, kind comments and truly wonderful charisma she radiates with. I enjoy every letter she puts in the text and the attention for details she often places in her writing.
I promote Carlo Rossi to a Sergeant First Class because of his spectacular texts about many wonders that decorate his county and love of his country that couldn’t be measured. When reading his posts, I feel like I am witnessing the grand architectures in person.
I promote Love to a Sergeant First Class because of the emotional and thoughtful post she is writing in a very heartbreaking way it almost leaves a crack in my iron made cyber heart. I might turn human because of her.
I would also like to thank the Sergeant First Class Yuvi for her comments and shown love, for I became very fond of her and her posts also. I like the style of her writing, because it somehow fits her personality and it can’t be copied. I look forward reading a lot of your stuff.
I promote Michael to a Sergeant First Class because of the haiku that leaves me confused and provokes sudden bursts of laughter. I became a regular visitor and committed reader of the blog that brought me joy. Keep making those.
I want to thank the Sergeant First Class Hayley and also say that she should write more. I’ve found her form of writing very interesting and I admire the easiness with whom she writes stunning posts.
I am thanking Sergeant First Class Jasmine even though I haven’t seen her posting for a while. I can only hope she is taken by more important things and that she will soon return to WordPress. Even so, I recommend everybody to drop by her blog and read a few poems she made.
I also thank the Sergeant First Class Teodora for very emotional, empathic and understanding posts that motivate me to stay true to my goals and strive to be a better man. It’s hard to explain how much love does she puts in her work, so I can only suggest you to read what she writes with genuine kindness.
I promote Kimberly to a Sergeant First Class for very personal posts, thoughts and opinions. After few of her posts, I started feeling like I’ve known her for a very long time. She writes in a beautiful and easy to follow way that I keep soaking in like water. Thank you for sharing your world with me.
I am also thankful to the Sergeant First Class Nash for being honest and a good friend of mine that is not afraid of telling me when my writing is lacking sense and what ideas are well thought. I wouldn’t be where I am if it wasn’t for you my friend.

I promote Ruth to a Sergeant Second Class for providing me with a glimpse of what a humble and modest person she is.

I promote Zeckrombryan to a Sergeant Second Class for choosing the same genre of writing as me and weaving amazing stories I found hard not to read in one breath.

I promote Alyana to the Radiant Lieutenant Second Class for sharing laughter with me, sharing the burdens of life and presenting me a voice of objectivity. Her blog gave me so much of insight in the world that appeared not so different from mine. I thank her for being a good friend of mine and trusty commentator.
I promote Debbie Pierce to the Radiant Lieutenant Second Class for her lovely poems, encouraging comments and shown friendship. Among many bloggers I follow, she is one that brings me smile even before I get to read the colorful poems she writes with such ease, it is out of this world… and then, people say I write fiction.
I thank the Radiant Lieutenant Second Class Idlebrain for being a true friend of mine. For some reason, he is absent WordPress and I became very worried of where he might be. His posts speak volumes and sometimes, I like visiting him, even if he isn’t posting as much as he used too.
I thank the Radiant Lieutenant Second Class Duri for being supportive of my blog and for being one of the first followers that didn’t just leave a like and vanished. I became very fond of his work and I hope he will make more in close future.
I thank the Company Mayor Matt for starting all of this rise to stars. If it wasn’t for his instructions about blogging, I still would be at the level zero. All of my success I owe to this guy. Matt is an aspiring writer and a great Harry Potter fan. He likes books, but most of all, he likes to help. I wish you many written books and a huge fanbase you can geek out about your favorite books. Thanks once again Matt.
Ah… I don’t know what else to say. Congrats everybody. I will celebrate this occasion with a bottle of beer. You are welcome to do with your new bling whatever you like. You can write about it if you get an inspiration, you can tell your mom about it, or tell it to your pet if you have one, of take it to your grave as a secret.
And I thank you all for choosing me as someone worth of reading. I am truly honored to write for you my brothers in quill. May your success be written among the stars.
– With love, Nenad. –
