This is slightly overdue and I’ve been meaning to post about it for a while, but…meh…you know how I roll.
Last month while I was in Japan, my blog views clicked over the 500,000 mark. Yay. It’s only taken…umm…about 8 years and 1100 posts, but here we are.
I remember the heady days of 2008-2009 when I was a full-time house bitch and had nothing better to do with my time but blog and angst. I was burning through blog views of around 35,000 a month (not that I’m obsessed with numbers or anything, because, you know, that would be uncool) but then I pretty much stopped blogging for 2 years and most of my readers – except the hardcore ones and you know who you are! drifted away.
These last couple of years I’ve felt a bit of a change in the way people consume my blog. It’s become much more of a drive-by consummation. Very rarely do I get a comment or a chance to have a discussion these days (and I always like me a good comment discussion!) But I think that’s reflective of the way that everyone consumes material on the internet these days – yours truly included.
We come, we read (or skim!), we fuck off.
I’ve got quite a few favourite blogs I’ve written over the years and below is a bit of a list of the golden oldies for your revisiting pleasure. I’m not really sure why I picked out these particular blogs, but I suppose they represent different parts of our dynamic at different times over the years (most recent on top, oldest at the bottom)
So thanks for reading and commenting and generally hanging around to partake of my ramblings. I hope to get to a million views sometime in the next decade 🙂
