Blog Stats & What Does It Mean To Me

on July 25, 2021
I get this reminder whenever I do a new post on my blog

I would be lying if I told you that I do not get a smile whenever I see “likes” being chalked up on my blog site. Like a little kid, I will jump with glee when I see a “like” and a comment.

It means that people are reading and communicating with me.

I also enjoy seeing where the readers hail from and sometimes, I see a country’s name that I never knew existed! So much for my Geography 101!

I am not so excited when I see the number of blog posts that I have made. Why? Does it matter if I have posted 1,534 days in a row?

So if I miss one day of posts, then my 1,534 days will be reduced back to begin at 1, 2, 3 etc. Hmm!

For me, what makes me most happy is when I see a comment. Why? It gives me a chance to have a conversation with a reader who has visited and has something to share. it makes this process more human in that there is “life” in the words and it becomes interactive!

I too, enjoy visiting various blog sites that I follow. I try to catch up on weekends as weekdays are just impossible with work demands. I start at 7am and usually do not finish till 7pm and still have to reply to text messages or emails till 11.30pm.

I too, will try to have a chat with the blogger and exchange views, thoughts or comments.

Sometimes it is to offer a condolence on a pet lost, a family member. Other times, it is to congratulate bloggers on their birthdays, blog anniversaries or admire the seascape or scenery that they have photographed to share with us.

As a fellow blogger, I am happy to be a member of the blog community and it allows me to share weal, woe and other fun, loony or zany stuff. I enjoy writing and it does not take me a lot of time or effort to hack up a post as words flow. I hate Math but I love words!

What does blogging mean to you?

How has it affected your life?

For me, it gave me solace, comfort and an avenue for me to share my life – regardless of how ridiculous it has been for me thus far.
