I published 2 short little poem-ditties yesterday.

Wow, 47 views yesterday. Plus 4 comments. That’s doing pretty good, for me. It’s very gratifying. And oh! this lovely weather in Seattle! Finally.

My best day ever was 82 views. One guy viewed and liked a bunch of my posts, and I’d just posted some pictures of rhododendrons that people really liked. It’s so gratifying to find creative outlets of expression. I’ve really learned a lot from my blog.

One thing I’ve learned is how “image conscious” we as a species are becoming. I started posting pictures with anything I published, knowing that it attracted interest from people.

The net result? Many days I’d have maybe 10 views. I’d check my administrator’s page, and see that they’d come to my blog via Google image search. That meant that they may not have even read anything – they were just searching for images. Ugh!

So I’ve made a resolve to read and write more. This week the local Seattle Times carrier stopped by my place with an offer of 10 weeks for $20. Wow! That’s a pretty good deal. I couldn’t pass that up, and it fit in with my resolve to do more reading and get more in touch with current events. One thing I miss about not having a TV for these last 2-3 years is that I’ve gotten behind on things.
