It’s All About the Numbers

celebrate

My celebrations this week are rather small, but pretty big to me.

As of today, I have officially hit 1,000 views of my blog; I also hit the 100 mark with comments on my blog. That’s pretty small for some of you who get that much traffic on each post.  But for me, it’s kind of awesome.

I also finally noticed the little numbers at the bottom of each post.  Okay, so observation is not one of my more impressive skills.  I was shocked to see that some of my posts have been shared on Facebook a dozen times or more!  That really left me feeling somewhat gobsmacked, honestly.  People I don’t know have shared my stuff on their Facebook pages.

Wow.

Pretty cool.

Of course, some of the things I have written were awfully personal or opinionated.  Gah, I put my picture in one of them!  And to be perfectly honest, I’m not entirely sure I was wearing a bra in that picture.  Oh, dear.

I also shared links to my blog with my husband and with my mother-in-law this week.  Not easy.  My husband is a wonderful man who loves me, but he would rather gnaw off a cherished body part than give praise; his mother is someone whose opinion I respect deeply.  She is kind, but she is honest.

And I am nervous.

Is it odd that I am comfortable pouring out my heart to strangers – and their facebook pages, apparently – and yet I am terrified of sharing my writing with the people I know and love?

    I wish I could get family to read my stuff. I ask and they say okay, then I ask again, and they say, ‘oh, sorry, I forgot’ — one family member begged for a copy of my last book, even before it was edited, I sent it and she still hasn’t read it. Don’t think she plans too, but it really hurts when she brags about another book she’s read. Then again, maybe Don has a point!
    Nice to meet you A J via the hop!

  2. Numbers are neat things to keep up with, but in the end, I’ve found it all about the friendships we make because of these “numbers”
    Congratulations on your accomplishments and it’s nice to meet you thru this AMAZING blog hop! I’m slow getting around to everyone, but isn’t it true that slow and steady wins the race?

    Have a fantastic weekend!
