I Would've Never Thought
Today, I was in and out of my doctor's office in 15 minutes and that included removing my stitches. I thought that would be the highlight of my day, but I just may surpass the 100,000 page load counter sometime tonight. It doesn't take much to please a 68-year-old retiree.…:-0
I started this personal blog in October of 2010 as a means to vent. I mostly ignored it until the Victoria Advocate switched to their Facebook book format. Now I use it as a way to write my slant on topics that I'm interested in.
When I got to the 90,000 mark, I started receiving a lot of emails from Google, Yahoo and others trying to get me to support ads. That's not me, because this is for fun.
I would gladly trade in 50,000 page loads for 5000 more comments, but that's something that I have not accomplished. I don't know if people are scared that I would delete their comments or that the subject of my blog, and my opinion is not worth commenting on. It could be that they prefer a Facebook format, or that they don't want to be the only one commenting. Getting more comments will be a priority. Who knows I may only attract passive readers who don't like to comment. I remember getting 100 comments for every blog that I posted at the VA but that had a much larger viewership.
“EA and that's the truth” set and exceeded the standard for local personal blogs. I can't replicate what she brings to blogging but I can thank for the help she gave me when I first started.
One goal will be reached an I'm now reaching out for more comments, so if you have any ideas e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks a lot for all those who have read this blog and special thanks to those who have posted their comments.
