Fifty and Fabulous…But I Want More…I Think!Posted: August 10, 2007
OK. So, I’m fifty and fabulous.
No, I don’t have an AARP card. Rather, yesterday was a highlight for me. How so? Let me explain.
Fifty of you came to read my blog yesterday!
Can I get a woo-hoo?! Excellent. Thank you.
Then, well, why am I depressed? Well, depressed is too strong a word.
I think I’m blog jealous.
Let me explain.
I started this for me. Really. But, since you started coming, I kind of like it. I want more of you to come and check things out. That’s not such a bad thing, right?
My average viewers per day has climbed, believe it or not, all the way to 35 people a day! Can you stand it? I know, knock me down!
But, hey, 35 is more than 15.
But, 917 is also way more than 35. That’s how many people came to read Molly the other day.
Now, don’t get me wrong, Molly’s good. Real good. I know. I hired her.
Still, that’s a lot of people. But, she comments all over the place. And, the key, she’s a she. And a young she. And those types of shes, it seems, are big bloggers. And I’m fine with that.
She has a defined audience. Which also helps.
Me? Scattered. Completely scattered.
One day I’m writing about my kids. One day about my brother. One day about music. One day about my flooded basement. One day about sports. I’m all over the place. And, just so you know, I will one day be writing about my day with Bob Denver! You can’t escape it!
And, here’s the thing, I can relate to the young twenty something bloggers, but are they going to relate to me on a regular basis? Not sure.
What about blogging daddies? Well, if there are some, I’m sure I can relate to that group, but will they relate to me on a regular basis? I don’t know.
It’s weird. I want to be read. I really do. But at the same time, I don’t care about it. Does that make any sense at all?
I’ve always been one to have a very tight circle of friends. And I love that. Maybe that’s what this is going to be for me, too. And that’s OK. Because, after all, I did start this for me. Not for you.
And, even with my little circle of blog friends, it’s been a cool way to learn more about them — even learning more about those I talk to every day. But, this blogging thing has allowed us to share and learn more about each other than I could have imagined. And that’s a cool thing.
So, while I, of course, would welcome more readers, I’m thrilled with what I have. I really am. I mean, here we are. I think for the moment that I’m just as happy going with quality over quantity.
What else? I got nothin’.
