It is only through our losses, failures, and hardships that we learn true growth and enlightenment.
How does one measure success in blogging?
Some would say that success on this platform can only be measured by how much money you have been able to make from your blog. As I don’t actually need any more money than I already have, then monetizing this thing has never appealed to me.
There are some very raw statistics that might tell me that the blog is a success;
- Number of followers; 2003
- Number of posts; 1024 (but that does not include the posts I’ve published and subsequently trashed)
- Number of views; 138,600
- Number of comments; 5,658 (not including the half-dozen comments I’ve received and trashed ~ for the benefit of whoever had sent a perhaps unsuitable few words)
Although I prefer to think that true success is measured by quality, and not quantity.
However it must be true that I am writing things that people want to read ~ else how would this ordinary English guy have had followers who stuck with me over the 4 years I’ve been writing this thing.
A very big thank you to you all
