An interesting development
I’ve been looking at my blog stats lately and I am noticing a continuous increase in the number of people that are visiting my site, either directly or via referral links from other sites. Today I just hit the highest number of blog views of 52 and yet, the day is not over. I know most people would look at that and go, “so”, but for me it is quite exciting. I suppose you could say it’s even been a little bit addictive, knowing that people are interested in reading what I am posting. I’ve noticed that a lot of referrals have come from http://condron.us, a website that I briefly explained about in my “And on it goes…” post (read the March 9th update at the bottom). I used to write a lot in high school, mostly fiction stories. I did this, because I enjoyed it, as it was a great outlet, but I also got into the habit of my friends reading them and telling me what they thought. As time went on, and especially when I entered college, I stopped writing. Mostly, due to the time commitment that my studies required, which I felt burnt me out (all the reports that I had to write and etc…), but also due to the fact that I had no one to read or show interest in my stories.
Times are different now and although I have fictional ideas to write about, I haven’t yet started that back up again. My blogs as of late have been more introspective and opinionated. I won’t write simply for the idea of someone reading it, but I want to continue this as best as I can and when the ideas come in. In the end, I just want to say “thank you” to everyone that is reading and enjoying my blog posts. I encourage everyone to leave their feedback/comments (whether agreeable or not) on my blog, as I am interested in what you are thinking after you’ve read what I have had to say. I like the engaging aspects that writing has on people.
