Now that the views are beginning to slow down. I am beginning to see the horizon of what is to come after my “one hit wonder”.
Yesterday, as I watched my view stats rise, all I could think was “Oh NO! I am never going to be able to top that post.” (Insert concerned face here)
I told my husband, “I wrote a post about my abortion….it has over 700 views.”
He says, “700, that’s not so many.”
Gotta love a man that keeps ya grounded!!! (Yeah, I’m so smirking.) But, he’s right.
Compared to the average 10 views my posts were getting, it was astronomical. I started really freaking out about the future of my blog. “What would I ever say after this!”
Compared to the big picture, 700 isn’t much at all. My fears of never being able to measure up to that post have slowly subsided. I was able to free my mind of that worry and really dive in and interact with you through our comments, and checking out all the blogs of those that followed mine.
Now that the pace has slowed, I have actually shut down my laptop, and stepped out side my front door for a moment. I could go back, and reflect….
Was that, my “one hit wonder”?
Who knows? Does it even matter?
Something BIG happened to my blog because of that post. Something BIG happened to me because of that post. I can’t explain it. I can’t put it into words. I’m not even sure that I understand it.
Because of all of you, I am starting to heal. Starting to grow. And, wow, have I been realizing all that I have learned through this, about SO much! And I have so much more I am still processing. I owe you guys a lot for that. Me writing it, you commenting, it was a great group effort. We make a fantastic team!
I certainly have a lot more to write. I have so much to process from sharing that very intimate piece of my life. So much more to learn. So much more, of a journey to walk with all of you.
That post. It wasn’t the end of my blog. It was the beginning!
