500: Some blogging milestones

So my last post for the Weekly Photo Challenge was also my 500th post on this blog!

500 Posts

I also recently hit 500 followers, though at least half of those are either people who haven’t blogged in about two years or robots. >_<

I check my stats probably a little more than I should, but I love to see that my blog is doing well and my hard work is paying off. Β Of course, I like it when lots of people visit, or comment, or click on my links.

But a couple of times recently I got a huge thrill when someone clicked through all the posts in a series that I wrote. Β That was so affirming to me that at least someone liked what I’d written and was taking the time to read more of it right away!

This seems like a good time to check in with you readers about what kind of posts you want to see more of.

    Well done. I have to love other people’s photos of Ireland, we’re the “Vagabonds of the Western World” (Yes, I’ve read other posts as well)

    I want to vote twice…

    I definitely check my stats but lately have gotten sad because I haven’t had as many people coming to my blog. It really does make a difference when you churn out content regularly! So maybe I’ll stop looking at them. I actually haven’t checked how many followers I have in a long time so I should do that.

    I love your photos! Especially because I’m going to Ireland soon so I like seeing what you saw and how beautiful it was.

      Yeah, I check mine more than I should. But we all work hard on our blogs and we want to see results, and stats are certainly one metric of success. Just maybe not the most important?
      I owe you an email about Ireland! I will do that this weekend!

    Congratulations. More success your way.

    Poetry and fiction will be a good addition to the mix, too. 😊
