Tomorrow marks four years since I published my first blog post. I truly cannot believe it. Several of you have been with me for the entire journey and many more of you have joined me along the way. I couldn’t be more grateful for your support. In keeping with tradition, I will be thanking four of you with gifts (one for each year). But more about that later. First a quick look back.
By the numbers
Over the past four years, I have published 362 posts, including six guest posts. More than 200 of you have shared 1,759 comments. The most commented post so far is this one about Changing Course Mid Blog Post.
And just yesterday I published my first video!
Last year, on my third blogiversary, I shared some lessons learned: it’s not all about the numbers; blogging is much more than writing; and not all advice is created equal. These lessons still hold true. To that list, I would now add, blogging should be enjoyable–for you and your audience. If you find the stress outweighs the joy, rethink your mode of operation. And blogging friends are real friends–even if you’ve never met in person. Thank you my friends.
