Reflecting on 2015: Blogging

Here’s an area of my life where I succeeded in applying my theme for 2015. I improved in my blogging so much so that I’m surprised by how much my blog has grown and how much I’ve posted.

I’m thankful for all the followers I’ve gained this year. My blog now has 301 followers at the time I’m typing this on New Year’s Day and I’m Happy, Happy, Happy and so, so Thankful that you all have decided to follow along, read my posts, and comment whenever you feel like it. Thank you so much! 😀

I’m also grateful for all the award nominations I’ve received as well. I think those awards are a great way to show appreciation for the work bloggers produce. Thank you all!!

I am proud of myself for all I’ve accomplished, and that I stuck with this blog, so I’ll reward myself with some ice cream later today. I tried a few new things like engaging in blogging events like posting tags and memes and even once participating in a readathon, Bout of Books. Along with those new posts, I also did Writing Myths, where I created myths based on a prompt, which were fun. My plan was to complete them by the end of 2015 but I have 3 more to go.

Looking ahead, I plan to continue on the track I’m on. I don’t have a set schedule and I plan to keep it that way because I tend to rebel against schedules I’m aware of. I also plan to post book reviews soon after completing the books, but I’m not sure how successful I’ll be with that. In 2015, I sometimes posted publishing news roundups, more as a way to sort of practice for my job, but those posts weren’t consistent. I’ve decided to continue with it and be a bit more regular. And, if I read as many articles as I did in 2015, I’ll do that weekly/biweekly articles roundup post that I kept mentioning but never did.

All that sounds like a lot when I think of the book reviews and other random posts I usually do but I think I’ll do fine. I’m trying to be more positive too. So, here’s to a new year filled with fun blogging adventures.

Happy New Years Everyone! 😀

And thank you for visiting, reading, liking, commenting, and following. 🙂

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys are back at it again. They’ve prepared a 2015 annual report for my blog to let us see how it’s been doing.

Lots of THANKS to those top commenters and shout out to Steve! 😀

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
