201 Days ’til 40: Half-way There! 200th Post Thank-You

04 Aug

Today is an important day – it is the half-way milestone on my journey.  THIS is my 200th post.  I have managed to keep my commitment to post daily for over half a year!  This journey has been and continues to be a great gift to me.

The greatest gift in this journey is you, my readers.  THANK YOU so much for the richness you all add to my life.  I love your comments and input – I love your suggestions and questions.  I love laughing with you at life and joking around.  I love that cyberspace is a gift that allows us to create a sense of community even when our physical locations may be thousands of miles apart.

Today I have over 2,200 followers and have had over 61,000 hits.  200 days ago I never would have dreamed that would be possible.  What a dream.  Thank you again!!!!!

    Congratulations!! There’s a reason for all the hits and all the followers. Your blog is a pleasure to read. You are way more disciplined than I am, everyday was my intention but that didn’t last long. I learned I have a lot to learn about how to do this thing called blogging. But I do read all the posts that come to my email or reader (except junk I can’t get to stop). I look forward to the next 200 from you. What are you going to do to follow this ?

    Mazel Tov. When it comes to developing a following, you have an amazing gift. Many could learn much from you – me included. I’d appreciate it if you wrote a series of teaching posts on “the art of developing a following and getting hits.” Effectively, the do’s and dont’s.

      Thank you so much….. to be honest, I am not really sure how I do it, other than making sure to respond to every comment and reading lots and lots and LOTS of other blogs that interest me (you know, in my free time). When you reach out to other bloggers and take an interest in them (search for bloggers who interest you) then they tend to reciprocate. 🙂

    Hey, that’s a big achievement. Blogging regularly for over 6 months is not everyone’s cup of tea. As you do this, you’re inspiring and setting an example for many readers who are going through your blog on a regular basis. You, Sir, deserve immense respect. Cheers 🙂

      Yes, you are so right! Thank you so much, Abhisek, for your wonderful words of encouragement! I am learning so much on this journey, most often from the comments of all of the wonderful people who take a moment from their day to read my posts, which is humbling and an honor! 🙂
