About a year ago, Churp, Churp turned 50,000 tricks, preceding my one year blogging anniversary by about a week.
This week, Churp, Churp will go over 100,000 tricks and next week it turns two years old.
I think it's funny. Bad or good, it all comes out in the wash. The pendulum swings and winds up where it was headed anyway.
I've thought seriously about stopping blogging for various reasons over time, but I have kept it up. I've received so much appreciated support and insight here when times were tough. Now that times are easier on the home front, I hope I'm good for a laugh at least. Seeking the laughter 1) keeps me focused and 2) keeps me writing. The last one is my overall goal: to be a good writer as I honestly chronicle my life for my own edification. That doesn't mean becoming a world-famous writer with a book deal. It means being someone who can observe details, nuances, and dynamics, recording it so seamlessly that you understand all the motivations and think you're there.
I figure I have conveyed those things about me fairly well, like me or not. You understand me and my motivations largely because I can write them fairly well and I don't mind being vulnerable in the process.
Now to go add a place to my StatCounter display. Thanks for coming back, all you lovers.
