Today my blog has had 10,000 visitors! I try not to dwell on how many hits my blog gets, but… okay, I do. Do I look at other blog stats? Of course not, well… okay, I do that too. Some bloggers don’t even display their stats, I admire them for that… I think. But then again, I can’t help but wonder why they don’t. Is it because their number is so low they don’t want anybody to know? Like why I don’t display my followers? Or, maybe it’s high, REALLY high, but how high… I want to know!
I haven’t been freshly pressed and I don’t dwell on that either, well… maybe a little. I remind myself that being freshly pressed means a ton of emails, and all those comments to respond to, that could take a week! It would be a lot of work, sounds hard and time consuming. Don’t want that do I? Good Lord no… yes.
I often think back to the days before internet, no websites, blogs, or even Google search. I was a closet writer, equipped with merely a dictionary and thesaurus, and I had a dresser drawer full of poetry nobody ever read. To me, a blog is a motivational tool to write, not just once in awhile, but everyday. My readers are an inspiration, giving me incentive to share my thoughts, and maybe a little wisdom acquired from my nearly ancient journey through life.
Thank you for blessing me with inspiration, purpose, and reward, one click at a time.
