I had not been paying much attention of late, but last night I noticed my blog rolled over 200 followers. I started this blog 222 days ago — that’s a little less than one follower per day! Thank you all!
I appreciate it so much when people find interest in what I write. I appreciate the likes and the comments that turn into dialogue that turn into blogging friends.
The next few days are going to be busy and difficult for our family, so my blog may be short and sweet over the next few days.
In the interim, I plan to visit all my followers, check out their blogs, especially those I have not yet followed. I know among the followers I will find some advertisers that really aren’t interested in my content. I am always pleasantly surprised, however, to discover new content that I enjoy reading regularly.
My blogging adventure has really curbed my time on FaceBook which is an unexpected benefit of this blogging journey.
One piece of advice I appreciate from longtime blogger Pete ( beetleypete.com ) is the importance of having your Gravatar profile complete. It is one of the easiest ways to learn about other legitimate bloggers. I just checked my own and see it needs a little tweaking as well.
So, for those of you that follow and read and comment, I thank you. This exchange has made my life richer in so many ways.
As one of my dear friends always says…Go Easy.
