Archive for June 7th, 2018


It is still dark and cloudy outside. It rained the whole night because of the tropical depression Domeng  and a monsoon trough. They are bringing moderate to heavy rains in the Southern part of the country including Metro Manila.

It’s that perfect weather to get lazy, just read a book or stay in front of your PC.  Or you may listen to your favorite music. Listening to 70’s non-stop classic hits at the moment. Oreo is right beside me asleep. I tried putting the headset near his ears a while ago  and he just looked at me. Maybe if he could speak, either he’ll say thank you or get that away from me.

I was just checking my dashboard (yes, I do check it twice a week) and this is my 2,276th post on Dreams and Escapes. My most popular and  most read post  is still  Another Year To Be Thankful For  although it is not the most liked  and commented on post I’ve ever written.  I wrote it on my birthday back in 2013.  There is really something uplifting for being grateful for God’s blessings.

Viewers came back after I lost some of them when I didn’t blog every day. I used to have an average of 100-120 visitors a day the past days but this week, daily views  reached more than 200. It’s a nice feeling to see such even if only a few of them make comments and click like.  My  views reached a total of 530,445  recently although followers only reached 3,230  including around 90 people from Twitter.  It’s really not that important to have thousands  of followers who don’t even bother to click  “like” to your post but it adds up to the beauty of blogging.  But you are more inspired to write when there is an interaction between you and your readers.  Meeting all those lovely people here is a big, big bonus.

Got this lovely quote from Goodreads.

“Don’t focus on having a great blog. Focus on producing a blog that’s great for your readers.” – Muhammad Tabish

And I wish I could write like this, producing a blog  not only for myself but for the enjoyment of my readers.
