and tomorrow at this time the 5000 hit blip will be gone

March 21, 2008

that’s right–you bloggers out there know the little joy your heart experiences when your blog hits a zeitguist and receives hit after hit…

and then it seems like  it flatlines (heck 50 hits a day after 5000 in 2 days will do that)

but tomorrow, when i check i will see the gentle rise and fall–39 one day, 69 another, maybe 80 or 90 or even 120 here or there…

i appreciate each and every one of you –thank you for visiting my blog and reading my words!

    In blogging you take the ups with the downs but continue because you love it! In the end the numbers don’t matter, its the opinions we express that count!

    Bill, I agree. But here is a thrill know that you are read, and read widely, and read well. Research says only 1% of users provide 90% of the content. The other 9% is from commenters. I’ve learned not to judge the quality of the post by the comments, as thrilling as it is to get them–like yours. And as much as I love it when comments become a conversation, I recognize that most people just consume the internet content–they don’t participate. I often get comments to my posts on my facebook page, but those folks don’t comment on the same post here on the site. They are more comfortable participating in that, more private feeling, conversation, than this one that’s potentially out in the open.
