I’m on time this week, for once. This week on Truthful Tuesday, hosted by Thoughts and Theories, asks:
Does it ever surprise you that people pay attention to your blog?
I checked my visit counter this morning and I’m at almost 300,000 views. That number is both surprising and astounding. I never thought I’d reach such number. So am I surprised people pay attention to my blog?
One of the reasons I started this blog was because I needed someone to talk to on my own terms. You’d be surprised how many times I tried to start a conversation in real life and within 30 seconds of the conversation, the topic of conversation became about the other person. So blogging was about me throwing a topic out there and making sure I get to say all I need to say about a topic.
The thing that surprises me the most is when I started blogging, I wasn’t expecting regular readership. I wasn’t expecting there’d be a group of people who are consistently reading and commenting on my posts. I must have very low expectations or low self-esteem or low confidence or whatever because I was expecting to get one reader or follower, not over 5,000.
So yeah, you can say I am surprised all the time to have people pay attention to something I created.
