Beating Last Year’s Numbers

At the beginning of the year, I hoped that I would double the number of views I had from the past year. I had done that in both 2016 and 2017–though I failed to do so in 2018–I thought it might be possible in 2019.  Now as we cruise into the last month of the year, I have come to accept that it is highly unlikely.  However, I can, at least, take comfort in the fact that I have, as of sometime after midnight, beaten the overall number of views from the year before.  While I won’t double my numbers, I should be able to put some distance between the new and old totals.  I still have great ambitions for this blog.

To what do I owe my modest success?

  • Pestering friends and family on Facebook
  • Starting an Instagram account
  • Writing a few well crafted pieces of writing
  • Writing on some interesting topics
  • Continued interest in the posts “How Long is 30 Minutes?” and “The Proper Way to Eat a KitKat.” (Hundreds of views a year)
  • Pure luck
  • The support of all my readers (That means you.)

Thank You Everyone.
