I made my first blog post on December 19, 2013 and began to use site stats to record traffic in February 2014. Now, just less than three years later, I have passed 1,000,000 page views. It took me roughly two years to get my first half million views, and one year to get the next half million. So readership is picking up. To date I have published 661 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.
In addition to weekly posting, I would like to publish a new meaning a life book that elaborates on my own evolving thoughts about the topic. My first book on the topic was always meant as the prerequisite research necessary to write another book which would elaborate on my thoughts on the meaning of life. Hopefully that book is forthcoming.
Finally, 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.
