About 6 months ago, you welcomed me in to your blogging lives.
For this, I am very grateful. There are many fine people in the blogosphere contributing many terrific messages.
I thought that I would honour this “anniversary” with a recap of my story so far…….I hope you don’t mind a little self indulgence.
This is my 127th post. I started publishing posts July 2009. I did two that year. I recommenced July 2010. My blog didn’t raise a comment until approx my 60th post in February this year.
I started receiving consistent comments from April, usually 1-3 per post. However you guys really started to kick in from May. Since then I have received 246 comments over 28 posts. The previous 90 posts returned just 42 comments…..First moral of the story, hang in there(don’t give up), keep punching.
Sometimes I feel that my posts haven’t hit the mark, some have been rubbish (upon reflection). Though in the past couple of months, I feel that I have improved.
It’s been a big learning curve. I’m not sure where I sit on the curve at present. I am enjoying my blogging more now, however I know I have a fair way to go in the learning side of things.
But that’s the FUN of it all…..Second moral of the story , Fun is always there if you look hard enough.
The comments I have received so far have been encouraging. I’m even getting the odd share via Tweets, likes etc, however, in the big scheme of things, my blog is still a little fish…..that’s fine by me.
Will it become a bigger fish? Hmmm…My Imagination keeps me going, I do imagine having a bigger audience. That’s a goal I will pursue with vigour.
Sometimes I don’t know where my blogging headlines or content come from(specifics wise that is). However I do know that when I set my imagination free, the words seem to flow.
Third moral of the story….. don’t be afraid to venture outside your ‘zone’, you may just like it. Imagine things differently, imagine a better scenario.
I have been on planet Earth a while now. And I intend staying for a lot longer. During my journey, I have had high & low spots. Times of great certainty(felt like it anyway) and times of uncertainty.
I found when entering my fifties that I had to re create, rejuvenate myself…..a time of Renewal.
Fourth moral of the story….. there is always an opportunity to step up, play a bigger game, if you like. You can always “renew” yourself and create the person that you want to be. I like to include ‘renewal’ aspects in some of my blog posts. I feel that I have ‘stepped up’ as my blogging confidence has grown.
I think we go through various stages of renewal during our Life. At least, we have the opportunity to do so. We just need to be aware when things may be stagnating and the time for “renewal” has come.
Thank you for joining me in my journey. You all have journeys of your own. May they be pleasurable ones. I look forward to your continued blogging friendship and hope that I meet many more in my travels through the blogosphere.
be good to yourselves
