Happy Blogiversary to Me!


You can really tell that graphic design isn’t my thing, can’t you?

While looking for something else this weekend, I found my kick-off post from this day in 2013.

2,279 Posts Later, here we are — I’ve already posted almost as many posts this year as I did that first year and had almost 6x the visitors. Guess it’s safe to say that things have grown a bit. My traffic isn’t what I dreamed it might be early on, and likely won’t be — but I’m honestly a little stunned every time I look at my stats. That many people have dropped by????

More important than the numbers — I’ve had a blast doing this. I’ve read so many great things — many, many things I’d never have even heard of without this blog. I’ve corresponded with more great authors than I can think of — and best of all, there’s you readers.

I want to thank all of you for your time, your comments, your encouragement — occasionally, your editing. I assure you that every view, every like, every comment, every retweet, every email is encouraging and I can’t thank you enough. Hopefully, I remember to say sthat more regularly.

  1. Congrats!!!
    I do have to say, for someone who claims to not like writing posts, you certainly seem to pump them out. 2200 in 6 years? Yeah, you’re a writing machine 😉

    Hoping your next 6 are just as good…

    1. Ugh. I come across as someone who doesn’t like writing? Nah, man — I enjoy the process. Just find it taxing, and since I typically start late in the evening, my mental “gas” is running on fumes. Spend too much time writing to not like it — and those 6-10 times a year when I nail something I write? Nothing better.

      1. I believe you have stated numerous times you don’t review all the books you read because of all the writing it would entail. I’ve always taken that to mean you don’t care for writing.
