Why blog if blogging takes time and life is so full as it is?
It's simple, really. I have two reasons.
1. Life is too rich to keep it to myself (and writing usually helps me see just how rich it is).
2. YOU. Here you are, reading what I wrote, even though I'm sure you have plenty of other things to do.
Whenever I have my doubts about whether blogging is worth my time, I check the "pageviews" in the bottom right of the blog. That always inspires me to keep writing. Today I crested 40,000 pageviews. Even if 10% of those are me (a high estimate), and 50% are some spam search engine somewhere, that's still an awful lot of reasons to keep blogging.
Whether you've been tracking with me all 4 years or popped by today for the first time, you've given me an awful lot of reasons to keep writing. Thanks for joining me on the journey!
