You, the Readers

I don’t know how you, the readers, find me. I’m a terrible example of how to promote a blog site. The first half of its six month existence, I didn’t even have my domain name. That should have been certain online invisibility.

Beyond that, I confess to great discomfort with marketing. I tried the recommended promotion strategies for all of a minute, and found them excruciating. They’re so at odds with my nature, it felt like selling my soul. I gave up and simply don’t do them. So you see, this site’s prognosis should have been terminal obscurity.

Nevertheless, somehow you landed here. And you’re not alone. To date, you are among readers representing 41 countries, from every continent except Antarctica. The newest viewers are from Pakistan, who popped in today and checked out several recent posts.

I was with a group of writers yesterday, and was asked how often I post a new blog. My answer: “It depends on the readers. Like when I see ‘Brazil’ stopped by, and I haven’t posted anything since the last person from Brazil was on. Then I dive in and write for them, because “Brazil” should have something new!”

Truly, you, the readers, keep me motivated. I may never learn who you are, since only your country location is revealed to me, but who knows … maybe someday we will meet. In the meantime, be assured that you are appreciated and always welcome here.

Numbers 6:24-26 “The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.”
