Since my first Weekly K  column, over 150 people have read my articles.

Is this what fame feels like?

If so, I’ve always wanted to be famous!

Just like Justin Bieber, I wouldn’t be famous if it weren’t for the extraordinary wonders of the Internet.

Well, I wouldn’t be semi-famous.  This is how it happened.

First, Mr. Bailey shared my articles on the school’s facebook page, then I shared it, and my mom shared it.

After that, people started talking to me about reading my articles.

My mom sent me a text after reading them that read, “They were good. You never cease to amaze me with your awesomeness!”

Before long, a junior named Logan Foreman said, “I like reading your articles! They make me feel so much better about my life!”

I’m not sure if that was a compliment or not, but I’m glad I could influence him.

And make him feel better about his life.

As I continue to write, I hope to get more page views.

The more views I have, the more motivated I will be to write knowing that people actually do read them.

With every additional view, I will know to talk about more topics that interest my readers and topics that they can relate to.

Weekly K is something I look forward to writing every week because I get to talk all about me, which is something I don’t do often.

Others look forward to reading them as well, so it’s a win win for everyone.

I hope that my columns will influence all of my peers positively to, like Logan, feel better about their lives.

I would also like to thank everyone who takes the time out of their lives to read these, it means a lot.

I like the fame.

Being the extrovert that I am, the attention is great.

Knowing that people are actually interested in what I have to say makes things that much better since that rarely ever happens.

Since I know people do read my articles, I am able to feel relief that I do have more than one friend, despite what I might think.

People actually do care about me!
