As bloggers, we all like to write, and we love to know that someone out there likes what we write. I do my best to not obsess over the stats page, but every once in a while, I do head over there just to see if anyone is watching.
Surprisingly (actually, amazingly) I do have some activity almost every day. The surprise is that I am anything but consistent with my posts. I know, I really need to stick to a better schedule, blah blah blah. I do have an editorial calendar, and I do a pretty good job at ignoring it. Just like the daily cleaning schedules I so diligently look at, and admittedly ignore.
I have no idea who pops in every day, but I really do appreciate that look, because it keeps me coming back. Wouldn’t want to disappoint my anonymous fan.
Funny story. A few years back, I got a notification that someone had reposted one of my posts. I was so excited when I clicked to her blog, a college student who thought MY blog was the berries! She loved my content, loved my voice, really made me feel like, wow, I’m not so old after all! There are young voices out there who are figuring out how to garden on a college student budget.
I was impressed to say the least. And she was impressed with me. I followed her blog back, heck, she was a fan!
But as suddenly as she appeared, so did the end of the semester.
Seems her blog was an assignment. And class was over.
I still have her blog on my followers list, if for no other reason but to read the glowing review she featured on my blog.
Hope this post isn’t considered cheating, as I did slip a bit from my promised theme. Sometimes, a little side-tracking does good for my writing soul. Consider this my side-track.
And no, you didn’t miss my “G” entry. I’m still working on it!
