When I started this blog I didn’t know where it would take me but I knew the writer in me had to get out. It has been fun making new friends and keeping in touch with long trusted friends through this forum. I thank you for indulging me in my passions and putting up with my occasional rants.
I recently wrote my 120th post. My mother asks me where I get all my ideas and my answer to her is, “When have you known me to not have an opinion on things?” When I sit down to write, my goal is to educate and entertain. I hope, along the way, I have caused you to think or see the world a little differently. I know I have angered some of you at times and I apologize for that but my hope is that through an exchange of ideas we will find the answers together.
It has been great fun blogging with WordPress and I highly recommend their format to any future bloggers. They have an easy to navigate template and the finished product is professional looking and one to be proud of. I encourage my readers to start your own blog and we can create our own network of linked blogs and expand our readership.
You never know who is reading your blog as I found out when the head coach of the New York Jets, Rex Ryan, left me a message on my bulletin board. Thank you Coach Ryan. As a year-end wrap up the people of WordPress prepared a summary of each of our blogs and I have chosen to share the results with my readers. I was shocked to see that my readers have come from all around the world. Click on the link below to see the number of countries represented and other statistics.
For better or worse, this blogger is here to stay and I have a lot more to say in 2012. Stay tuned!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,200 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
