I can’t believe it. January is almost gone and all I have are eleven blog posts since the start of the month. The past days, I struggled with using my tab when posting. It really came in handy while my old computer has finally gone kaput on me, buried for good this time. I am using a new one which Josef gave me as a late Christmas gift complete with a 17″ monitor and is wi-fi ready. This is actually my first post using it. I don’t know, it might be a blessing in disguise since I was able to catch up on my reading ( I am on my 10th book on the reading challenge on Goodreads). One thing I’ve missed while using my tab was the proof-reader. Sometimes you’ll never know that in the course of typing what is running in your head, you misspell a word that never gets corrected even if you edit your post once or twice. I am not a lover of the auto-correct features of my cellphones and tab. I often have to go back, erase and retype words since the former inserts something far from what I have in mind. It’s crazy, more so when I am texting in Tagalog and it does not have an equal word to substitute.
Thank you so much to those fellow bloggers who recently followed my blogs and thank you too to those visitors who left inspiring comments on my old posts. I’ve reached more than 385,000 stats a few minutes ago. It’s a milestone for me. I didn’t really expect that I’ll get to have this number of visitors in my six years of blogging. There was a time during the early years when having a 20 to 50 views in a day was enough for me but then there are loyal followers and online friends here who visit regularly. Added to that are the views I get daily from my posts as a cancer survivor. My old posts are more popular than the new ones 🙂
I still get excited publishing a new post. I am happy seeing new followers and likes. Of course they add to the joy of writing, getting noticed that is. I try to limit each post from a minimum of 300 words to around 500 words at the most. It is easier to read a shorter post than a lengthy one.
Where has January gone? February is slowly inching its way. I hope it would bring inspirations for me to blog often and update my other blogs too which I have neglected too long.
