My blog isn’t a year old yet but it has become very important to me. When I first started it was my intention to publish daily, and that’s still my aim (although there will inevitably be some gaps).
A little while ago I became secretly a tiny bit obsessed with my stats. In particular the number of views and visitors. Now we are at the start of 2019, some of the numbers have reset themselves, so maybe I won’t look too closely for a while.
I liked the way Ashley reviewed her stats here: https://wp.me/p9c3J6-1a9
What really took me by surprise was how my following on Twitter suddenly has grown, and now I feel a huge responsibility to keep those people entertained. It’s so different to Facebook where I wore my invisible cloak for so long that when I finally just melted away I don’t think more than two people noticed.
There are a few things in the blogosphere I have chosen to stay away from. I have enjoyed reading other bloggers “12 Lessons in 12 Months” but there’s nothing relatable that I am ready to share about my life, so I’ve not taken part in that tag. I do appreciate being tagged though, so please carry on including me, because I find these things are useful for private reflection.
The next stage of my therapy will hopefully be Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and if I can pass on what I learn from that then I most certainly will.
I’m joining in with a self care challenge this month, organised by ThoughtsWithN on Twitter. DAY ONE was to “read part of a book” and I read a few more pages of my Susie Dent book (the one which inspired me to write about our tribe’s language). At the time of writing this post I should be doing the DAY TWO activity, which is “go for a walk” but, I’ve swapped that for DAY THREE “listen to a podcast” … I have chosen a podcast about crochet.
Generally I don’t make resolutions, but I have written two words in my journal for the beginning of this year; hope and believe.
