HELLO to all my followers and sometime readers. I am about to hit a real benchmark and I can hardly believe it myself! Wordpress keeps you informed on myriad details about your blog and your posts. Everyday I see how many visitors come to the blog and what the average number of views per person is as well as from what countries the hits are coming. I see which blog posts are the most popular, the number of views per month, and the search engine terms that people type in and end up on my blog.
All this information is useful and to some niche bloggers, it would be essential. Unfortunately for me I never found my niche. I write about my life, my travels, the foods I cook, the movies I see and often post information and research on dozens of totally unrelated things. I post photos of my grandchildren and the moon. I was fortunate enough to have my good friend, Murray Head send me hundreds of photos that I posted on Fab Foto Friday. Sounds a little scattered doesn’t it. I think that describes the mind of a person born on the cusp of Gemini and Taurus. At any given time, there are 3 minds at work with or against one another!
Well here’s where I’m at; I love writing my blog even though my husband and daughter wonder why. I freely admit that my blog like 99% of all blogs is more or less an egocentric stream of consciousness. Over the short life of this blog, I’ve tried various ideas to entice a following because even though I am (supposedly) writing this for myself, don’t think for a minute that I don’t relish seeing the number of hits the blog has each day. I loved Six Word Memoir Monday and may try to reinstate it but I need your input! Conspiracy Theory Wednesday was a fantastic exposeé on the Kennedy Assassination, Top Ten Thursday allows for a wide range of subject matter and Tasty Tidbits Tuesday and Every Day Food are one of my joys.
BUT now I WANT YOU! I am 7 posts short of ONE THOUSAND! WOWIE ZOWIE! I only have to write 7 more posts and I will have reached a real benchmark for myself. I would love it if you would comment and give me some ideas as to what these next 7 posts should be about; Do you want a repeat of one of your favs or do you have a scathingly (or not so scathingly) brilliant idea I can incorporate into a post?
