I’ve been posting on this blog for an year now.
Last year, on this day, I was full of resolutions. I wanted to post on this blog on a daily basis, but now that I check back, the maximum I’ve ever managed is 16 posts in a month.
I started with a longing for visitors, but with life taking over, I find that I have less and less time to socialize, to comment, even to post, and my stats have taken a nosedive.
I’ve also found that I do not care for my stats quite so much.
A lot of proverbial water has flown under the bridge, but I’m happy to note that I’ve stuck to my last year’s resolution of writing fiction. And have built on that resolution this year. I’ve taken one writing course and then another, but the biggest lesson I’ve learned is that it is all about writing, writing, and more writing. And it is all about not giving up, never, ever.
I’m not sure this blog has turned out to be exactly what I wanted it to be. But it has been a good journey, one I mean to continue, and I’ve made friends along the way. Friends who’ve given me words of encouragement when I’d just about had it with life, friends who have made me laugh, friends who’ve given me new insights into life. For all these friends I’m grateful, and I also want to thank each and every one of them for being such an inspiration. Annie, Darc, Ely, Indigo, Kym, Lofter, Ovidia, Rick Mobbs, and so many more…..
I mean to keep this blog chugging along this year, and who knows, maybe I’ll manage my time well enough to carve out time for blog browsing, stumbling, and doing all those little things that mean higher ranks. Or maybe I won’t.
One thing is sure, I want to keep up this blog for as long as I can; and I want to watch myself grow, become a little smarter, a little wiser, more intuitive, with each day, each month, each year, each post.
