The Quiet Benchmark

I’m so accustomed to WordPress announcing accomplishments for my blog that I was kind of expecting some sort of notification when I hit 2,000 followers on July 30. But, no. The benchmark came and went with little fanfare.

Well, maybe because it’s taken me over five years to reach 2,000, they didn’t think it was worth noting. And given my followers on FB and Twitter, I’ve been over the mark for at least two years now.

Every now and again I wonder if blogging is a good idea. Am I wasting my time, and yours, dear followers, by jotting down my often random thoughts on a daily basis? The truth is that I’ve been at it for so long that it’s become a pleasant habit, and I LOVE the interaction with others. I learn so much from reading the blogs I follow, and that’s something I might not do if I weren’t actively involved in writing one myself.

So I’m going to celebrate my little milestone. Stand back; this could get crazy.

(That’s not me, but I like her spirit!)

  1. Today WP announced my stats are booming. I looked…average day. When my stats do spike, it appears there is little fanfare to commemorate with the WP analytics peeps. Huh.

    Weirdos. 😂

      1. I think a big part of that is how much you participate with other bloggers. At least it has been for me. I’m trying to get more out of my shell, but introverted shy people still don’t do as well even in online situations as really outgoing chatty people. I’m pretty new to your blog, so I don’t know where you fall in that scale. I’d be curious to know if that is part of it.
