QL reaches 3K followers!

So I woke up this morning and I realized we hit a milestone here in Queer Landia land.  We hit the 3,000 follower mark and it was a real treat to see this morning as I await my first cup of coffee.  We are 5 months shy of hitting our 3 year anniversary and garnering 3,000 subscribers isn’t too shabby if I do say so myself.
