It snuck up on me. How could I have overlooked this? A minor blip in my life is, as of two weeks ago, I completed one year of writing this blog, and I never missed a week. It has been both a challenge and fun.
Over the 52 weeks, I completed 63 posts. I doubled up for a short while with my US posts in order to get us to Panamá. I also wrote a few Monday Chats. Currently, I have 57 followers, which is a miniscule number compared to most other blogs. I continue to try to increase my number of followers, but I’m up against one million other blogs in the world.
As of today (Friday 10/14), I have had 2,133 visitors to my site from the US and 605 from Panamá. In addition, I have had 301 visitors from 36 other countries. I am pleased to have reached 3,039 people but disheartened as I have managed to secure only 57 followers.
I have turned to social media to try to get more exposure. At the moment, I appear on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Medium and other occasional locations. My posts also include a tiny URL at the bottom for you to share with others. I recently created a website (SecondHarvestBooks.com) which features the books I’ve written. My attempt with this is to promote some cross-fertilization.
Still, I’m not giving up. I will continue to write a weekly post. With the wane of Covid, I hope to add more traveling to my life. As long as I can afford to do so, I will search for more stories to share with you.
I wish to express my thanks to each of you for having stuck with me for the last year. This blog would be of no value without you.
