I started blogging about my writing a little over five and a half years ago. The reason was to connect with some of my readers and I have to say that I consider it a great success. Over the past year especially, I’ve gotten emails and posts with comments, questions, and words of encouragement. It’s very gratifying.
During the first four years of blogging, I sometimes felt that I was my only audience. On my four year anniversary, I had 18 official followers. Of course I realize that many people visit a site and don’t click the “follow” button for a variety of reasons. Nevertheless, I was very excited today when I looked at my home page and saw 201 followers!
Thanks to all of you who follow this site and thanks also to anyone who occasionally visits.
I let an anniversary slip by me recently. Back in April, was my one year anniversary on WordPress. My original blog (on Blogger) was almost exactly 4 years old when I switched here.
I was pretty happy back on blogger when I had 10 and then 20 followers. Today I passed the 150 followers mark on City of Amathar here at WordPress. Thanks to all of you who were interested enough to press the “follow” button.
I had an anniversary that I forgot all about. Last month marked four years of daily blogging for me. I have thought recently about cutting back on the number of blog entries until my next book was finished, but now I feel like “hey, I’ve done it for four years. Why would I stop now?”
It really doesn’t hamper my writing to post a few blogs. In fact, as I write this, I am letting my brain rest as I work my way through the next to last chapter of Eaglethorpe Buxton and the Amazons. Okay, now back to work.
