The year 2008 had already been a challenge.The winter snows had been incredibly deep.
DH had spent time in and out of doctor’s offices and hospitals. There had been my mother’s funeral, the trial of dealing with my parents’ property after years of being their primary caregiver, plus a family reunion, a bathroom remodel-etc. By September I needed a way to vent. So I did what most people do, I turned to blogging.
My first two posts were about the learning experience of sorting out the stuff in my dad’s shop.
Over the years I’ve worked to keep my posts upbeat and positive. I like to show off my photos and paintings and poke fun at myself.
I think the best part of blogging is finding like-minded people and making friends all over the world. I appreciate a little more the differences and the similarities of the human race. And I do think most people are compassionate and kind if given the opportunity.
After looking at the stats on my blogger page (134,518 total pageviews)
I find by far the one with the most attention is about …
My wide feet with 2606 hits. It seems this is the most popular photo of wide feet in cyberspace.
Or maybe multitudes were just jealous of the daisy on my toe.
There were other posts with photos of my feet such as this one.
…or this one, which, by the way also features one of my own poems.
They didn’t draw nearly as much attention.
The second most popular of my posts with a photo to “borrow”
is the one of cat tracks in the snow. I never would have guessed.
My Pretty LittleHorses post came in third and I agree it is a winner. I was out with my camera right after a summer rain and caught these little appaloosa babies frolicking in the sun.
So to all my bloggy friends and followers, thanks for stopping by and saying kind things about my photos, poetry and paintings, and commenting on my jokes and rants.
Here’s to another seven hundred!
