I just wanted to write a quick, but sincere, thank you to everyone who read and responded to my last blog. Honestly, I don’t think anything I have written in the last year has garnered as many responses. Your ideas and opinions are invaluable.
On the day I posted the blog and asked for views of it on my Facebook and Instagram pages, I was able to generate a large number of views. In the following days a good number of websites and a few bloggers started following the blog. I even had an offer to collaborate with someone.
Since then, I have taken some time to reflect on my blogging. I was thinking about the number of views I had for the year, but I really should have thought about the number of posts I wrote. By the year’s end, I will most likely have written fifty or sixty fewer posts than last year. Upon reflection, it is no wonder that I had fewer views.
That isn’t the real story. I was concerned about growing my blog when I should be concerned about improving my writing, editing, and engagement with other bloggers. I long ago gave up the idea that I was going to be some kind of influencer who got showered with free trips to exotic lands to review, but I never gave up the idea that this blog should be a place to improve my writing.
Thank You again everyone for your time and wisdom.
