My Little Blog

All you bloggers out there, are you one who will check and see how many views your posts get, and do so on a regular basis? What is this fascination I seem to have developed regarding this very thing? I almost feel like it's a sort of vain accomplishment to myself that I'm getting a certain number of views. I don't feel like I'm alone in this either, and it truly does make me wonder why it seems so important.

This being said I have to do a bit of a vain boast and announce that I have over 5,100 views overall for my blog.* What started out almost two years ago as a way to get my thoughts out of my head and written down, has turned into a way to get my thoughts out of my head and written down. But it's been viewed over 5,100 times, and that means something to me. Either I might be slightly interesting, or I'm popping up in google searches a lot.

I'm thinking it may be the latter. I say this because I have one post in particular that has almost 1,000 views on it's own. I never thought that it would be viewed that much mainly because I wrote it as an amusement to myself and a few others. But this excites me that others are finding it amusing too. Though I do feel like people are afraid to comment their thoughts on my blog, and I don't want you to feel that way. I've tried to make it as simple as Blogger will allow me. So please give it a try! I'll take your criticism, praise and suggestions and make something of them.

But really I just want to say thank you for reading my little blog here, and I hope if anything, it can give you a break from your reality, even if it is just for a minute or two.

*I realize to some bloggers this is nothing, but to me it's huge!
