I began this blog here on the “press of the word” as an old beautiful blog friend liked to call it, in December 2011 and faithfully have posted each month since. I do have older posts that were written during the darkest moments of my blog life… if you like archives, feel free to dive in. You will definitely get a true sense of how far I have come as fellow blogger Edward Hotspur has expressed to me.
Since December 2011, this blog has had over 44,000 hits. I do not say this to brag but because I am ecstatic that it is reaching people… even if it is “accidentally” stumbled upon, as it has been by several who have emailed me to express their happiness at finding my blog.
My goal is to try to get 40,000 more hits by my 1yr anniversary in December. Which means I better start stepping up on my posts, and on my reading of the blogs I am subscribed to… And I should branch out and read new blogs, to make more friends in this blogosphere.
I believe it can be done… and if I do not hit that number… that is quite alright by me. I just want to reach whoever needs to read what I am saying, whoever needs inspiration, whoever doesn’t need to feel alone, whoever loves poetry, whoever would enjoy my blog world.
Cheers to blogging success!! p.s. I am using sweetened tea to “cheer” this morning, it is not quite time for an alcoholic libation. LOL
