Just when I am all impressed with myself for hitting 200 blog followers, I realize all these OTHER bloggers with whom I used to be neck and neck are at 400… how the heck did THAT happen?
THEN I started thinking about why I blog and how I blog… I saw a great blog last week about blogging better [can't find at the mo] and it listed all these sites to increase traffic… but with my philosophy, could I DO a ton more? Could I read twice as many blogs every day? No. Do I want to visit the blogs I visit half as much because I have more to cover in a week? Not really… So I am going to plug along with my slow growth model and be content. I figure it is a quality set of peeps… anyone who makes him or herself known through comments and follows gets the reciprocation, and that is a pace at which I can make FRIENDS rather than just throwing you all in a sack, though I know there are few of you who'd probably like to get in the sack with a few OTHERS of you (and I'm not saying you can't... I'm permissive that way—I might even get in the sack WITH you if we all get to dance like I like...) I'm just not going to force it.
I had my 105th country on Tuesday, Mongolia. And then Wednesday I had my 106th, Cambodia (does that mean more than half the world has visited me? I think it does! HALF THE WORLD IS NAKED!!! And THIS tickled me like crazy (I found it in my counter list of where recent hits came from—which is an inadequate counter list, as it only tells me the last ten, but it's free, and sometimes it is CRAZY interesting)… I think it may be Hungarian, but I’m not sure. I love the arbitrary nature of things not translated… minski ramblings in particular pleased me.
But it IS Thursday, and I know I don't have to remind you what THURSAY means!
