This will be 986th blog post. Just 14 more to get to 1,000. If I keep to my normal posting schedule I should get to that post just about the same week as the 10th anniversary of this blog. Somehow I’ve managed to amass 3,694 followers and what’s more important to me is that there have been 18,194 comments on my posts.
Okay, okay, half of those are mine. I try to reply to every comment made here. Sometimes I don’t say much, but actual comments are the most valuable thing to me. Likes are nice, but it’s even better when I get a real comment.
It’s really the community of bloggers that keeps me writing here. There are times I think I’ve run out of things to write about and often struggle with what to write about. From time to time I think it’s time to give up and move onto other things.
But then, I read something or something pops into my head and it ends up here.
Kind of like today. I don’t really have anything important to say, but was amazed when I checked out my blog stats – never thought I’d still be doing this after all this time.
Now the next logical thing would be to write about the future of this blog. I have no idea where I’m going. I’ve considered being more disciplined about this – you know actual editorial calendars, themes, working to attract more followers, maybe add that podcast, etc.
Likely I won’t and I’ll just keep doing whatever it is I do here.
The only thing I will say is that I am planning on having a 1,000th post – even if it’s just another, “I don’t have anything to say,” post.
Kind of like this post …
