Hi everyone in reader-land,
This week my blog hit the 100 reader milestone, and exceeded it! I now have 101 regular subscribed readers to my blog. There has been a slow and steady climb in readership since I began the blog in March 2011, and now after 16 months I’m excited to report readership is in the 3 digits.
Of course I’d like to welcome any new regular readers to the blog, and thank you for signing up for my writerly ramblings, it’s appreciated!
Who are these elusive 101 readers out there in the murky twilight of blog-land?
Most likely they are writers, but all are artistic creative types from what I know.
We have George, my very good friend, a novelist; and Wren my sister in arms who just signed a publishing contract. There’s Patrick, a sports blogger; and Louise the budding poet from Australia who just had her work in the local newspaper.
Of course there is Hannah, who writes a great blog about breaking into publishing; and Doug, who posts flash fiction to his Hawaii based blog like clockwork (when he’s not sitting atop a mountain gazing at the stars)…and of course Court, a fellow short story writer and PANK staff member, and Harry who has published two novels and whose work I adore. When he’s around Mike Reverb adds his colorful commentary; and more rarely now Scribbla might show up from Namibia to say a word or two. But it’s also Munchow, the professional photographer from Europe, and Veeh, a writer from Africa who pops by now and again. And my new friend Sean who is a short story writer in California. Oh and my new pal Peter, a sometime writer currently living in Turkey, is coming to read the blog too.
As much as I’d like to say this is my blog and I’m the one who writes it, I know that’s not really true. Not entirely, anyway. My blog would be severely diminished as a place to discuss writing and creating without all the people I just mentioned and many, many more.
Who are YOU dear reader? Come and make comment here, all are welcome… storytellers and writers, readers and artists, photographers and creative types of all walks of life.
Identify yourself and say hello to everyone else here in this collaborative circle.
As always, I thank all of my readers for their ongoing support and commentary, their thoughts and their participation.
I truly look forward to entertaining you, but more importantly getting to know you and interacting with you here, and in blog-land.
