Why I'm Still Around
As I look back on the past four years, my tenure in the blog world, I can't help but wonder why I'm still here? I have a readership of twelve. I have suffered and survived a serious bout of burnout; and I often ponder just where I fit in a world ruled by page hits, traffic sources , unique visits and bounce rates. And why do I care?
I realized recently that I don't care. I accept that I am an average writer and a slightly above average photographer. It would be hard to get a day job doing what I love to do. But here, on these virtual pages, I say what's in my heart and my mind. I post the images that make me happy. And for some strange reason the twelve of you keep coming back for more. (I thank you for that.)
After four years this little blog of mine has become one of the parts that make up the whole of who I am. Amputation of parts is not an option.
