When I started this blog last March I really didn’t think anyone would ever read it. I specialized in lurking back then and only started it because I wanted to ask Miss Snark a question and participate in her crazy contests and thought you had to have a blog to do it.
Sometime in the last 24 hours I passed 1,000 visitors. That’s not many compared to some of the blogs I visit – including my daily homage to Miss Snark even though she’s dark - but the number amazes me. It doesn’t matter that many of those visitors are repeats – in fact that makes it more special.
I’ve learned a lot from my blogging friends and believe I’m a better writer now because of their wisdom and advice. I still don’t know what I’m going to write. My heart says non-fiction because I really enjoy helping others and have lots of different experiences from which to draw. I’m a good speaker and would enjoy using writing as a platform for doing more of that.
There are also lots of small stories racing around my brain like go-carts on a track bumping into neurons and igniting sparks of creativity. With my limited attention span, perhaps I should think about doing short stories or magazine articles instead of the great American novel. I don’t know. It’s still all so new to me – writer land!
One thing I do know, I really enjoy the blogs and the outlet they provide for expressing my ideas, opinions, joys, frustrations and just mundane thoughts.
And I appreciate everyone who stops by to visit.
