I started this blog on March 15, 2016 with this post: Waiting for Tomorrow. In thirty days or so I will have been at this blogging thing for one year.
So after one year what I have accomplished? 443 post at an average of 500 words a post, roughly about 221,500 words. Hell that’s a novel. 4,700 comments. Hard to imagine that 443 post have generated 4,700 comments but that feels pretty good. I have tried to respond to all of them and I have enjoyed the interaction. I have learned so much from many of you and for that I thank you.
This simple blog has had almost 20,000 visitors. Again, very difficult for me to believe. How does it compare? Probably in the world of blogging not even a blip on the radar screen, but for an old guy who rambles on and on from the state of South Carolina, a pleasant surprise.
Almost 1,300 followers. Again, barely a blip on the radar screen for big time bloggers but I started with one eleven months ago, Thinking Out Loud. Hell I don’t even know if they still read my blog today. All I can say is thank you. Thank you for following me. Thank you for putting up with my nonsense.
Everyday I wake-up and wonder what am I going to write about, and for some reason I find something to type out with my two fingers. How long will it last? Shit I got no idea. Surely I will run out of ideas, surely Trump will settle down and not piss me off, surely you pious Christians will figure out the Kingdom is here right in front of you. Then again maybe not. All I can say is thank you, thank you for joining me on this journey. Peace & Blessings from your friend at Ends and Beginnings.
