Last weekend was the busiest ever on my blog. In the two days of Saturday and Sunday, I received more views than in the seven days leading up to them combined. I was notified by WordPress that I had received the most ‘Likes’ ever on one day, and that my ‘stats are booming’.
When you have had your blogging ups and downs, weekends like that can be very encouraging indeed. Rightly or wrongly, you get the feeling that it is finally coming together, and that perhaps you are doing something right after all. Even though none of us in this community actually blog for the sake of looking at high stats, we cannot deny that it is rewarding to be read. Otherwise, we could just write our thoughts and ideas down in a notebook, and not bother to publish them for the world to see.
Looking back over the weekend, I see that I may well have the three published posts to thank for generating so much interest. Religion, Photos of a local village, and of course, Jamiroquai. That is a diverse list of subjects, and one that I never really expected to see here, when I first started this blog.
So, I begin this week with a renewed enthusiasm for blogging, and a nod to my determination to be positive, in 2017.
Thanks to everyone who helped make it a great weekend.
