This is my 500th post!
At least, that is what WordPress analytics tells me. Although, when I checked, the figures add up to 503.
Not that I’m counting!
I have never been bothered about the statistics of my blogging, although I am surprised by the number who read my blog.
I do it for me – not for you – not for kudos – not because I want acclamation – purely because I want to.
I spend far more time on WordPress than I should. I sometimes neglect other, more important, things, but I enjoy it!
I love all of you who are reading this. I love some of you who are not reading this. Some sites I read every single post, others I read only occasionally.
If you follow me, I will not necessarily follow you.
I worry about some of you out there.
I am particularly concerned when bloggers disappear but fully understand the reasons why. Anyway, it has nothing to do with me. But I still worry!
There are brilliant wordsmiths here, fine minds, successful authors, stupendous poets, fine artists, great photographers. People who stretch their own limits, and also mine.
Some comment threads turn into real conversations, some turn into flirting. Not mine, I hasten to add (although, to be honest…….)
Some blogs that I follow are so prolific, and so good, that I have to curtail my reading of them, very reluctantly! (but only temporarily)
I did check through the WordPress statistics and found the following:
- The most views (86) prize went to a re blog of a poem on March 17th 2016. A worthy winner!
- I have one post that received NO LIKES whatever – you can rectify that by going to 16th September 2015!
- I started blogging on 11th September 2014 by telling how I had lost my big sister!
So, there you have it. My 500th post. Not very exciting, but factual.
It just remains for me to say a BIG THANK YOU for your being there, for reading my blog, for being my friend, for giving me interesting and informative posts to read.(and, honestly, I will eventually let you know why I was crawling under the Queen’s bed!)
