It is almost one year to the day that I kicked off this blog with a promise to myself that I would actually do it. And maybe even stick to it for a little while. You can read my promise to myself (and my lack of faith in same) at the following link:
Overall, I would rate my progress over the past year as a solid “E” (i.e. exceeded expectations). I honestly thought I would only get six or eight posts into this thing before I gave it up. That had been my track record up until then and I saw no reason why the pattern wouldn’t repeat. After all, I have lived a life made up of started-but-never-finished projects. It just seems to be part of my DNA.
But I am happy to report that I have not only stuck with this blog for an entire year, but that I have written over 200 posts, have had over 2,000 visitors, and have received over 4,700 views. Those numbers far, far exceed what my expectations were when I started this little venture. After all, I only started this blog to try and become more regular in my writing. Therefore, I figured that my record at the end of the year would be more along the lines of 8 posts, 21 visitors, and 63 views. I also assumed that most of those visitors would be me checking my blog from different IP addresses.
Anyway, I want to thank you all for allowing me to have such a stellar year. The best part of it all is not my stats, but the friends I have made, the amazing blogs I have gotten to read, and the knowledge I have gained.
You all make blogging fun!
