I made my first blog post on December 19, 2013, and began to use site stats to record traffic in February 2014. About 3 years later, in January 2017, I passed 1,000,000 page views. Now, a year and a half later, I just passed 2,000,00 page view. (That equates to about 1.5 million visitors as the average visitor views about 1.3 pages.) To date, I have published over 800 posts. I do this work without pay, and my family income is entirely based on social security—thanks FDR—so I’m hardly rich. But I am privileged to share my thoughts in the hope that some might benefit from them.
I would like to thank my readers, many of whom have made insightful comments, and a few of whom I’ve come to know through email. Despite what they might say about writing for themselves, every writer also wants to be read. So again thanks to all who have viewed these pages.
