Are Your Posts Complete When You Finish Writing?

It never ceases to surprise me that I cannot correctly predict which of my posts will be more or less popular with the readers.

I can post 4 or 5 different things in the course of a day, and when I look at my WordPress stats page, the one I really expected a lot of likes on gets 1, while the one that I jotted down off the top of my head ( yes. like this one💕) ….and I thought nothing of ….will get 40 likes.

When you are blogging, it is not always the posts that you researched for, the ones that you edited 3 times, or the ones that took you the longest to write…that people enjoy tbe most.

No matter how long you have been blogging, or how good your writing is, you can never really predict how your readers will respond, or what will draw new readers.

It is part the fun of blogging …..the unpredictability….and waiting and watching to see what will happen with the words you spilled upon the page…..or painfully bled upon the page….

So intersecting. Do you find this to be true for you?

Let me know what you think, and how you feel about the surprise when something you did not think much about gets many more likes and comments than you ever would have anticipated.

Blogging is a dance between the writer and the reader. You never can be sure what will catch people’ s interest and attention. Anything that people can really relate to tends to draw comments. But you never can know if the readers of the day will relate to what you are thinking about and feeling. 

Sometimes you just stream thoughts or feelings and they seem to connect right to other people’s feelings, thoughts or imagination.

The post I wrote about having a reader from Malta was so popular and I was pleasantly surprised. Everyone jumped in and wanted to tell me where they were reading my blog from.

It was quite fun as everyone shared their part of the world or part of their country. I never would have anticipated that. The comments made the post more interesting.

Sometimes as the readers get involved, and add thoughts and feelings and experiences, to the comments, it is like the writing itself is continuing without you…..like you began the post and your readers and continuing it.

In this way, if you think about it, the posts you write are never really done….until the readers make them bloom and blossom into something more. 💕

 

💙Bloggers and Readers from Interesting Places

On my stats page it says that I had a reader from Malta. I have never heard of that country. It is so cool to have people reading your blog, from places you never knew existed.

If this is you, please feel free to leave a comment and tell us something about your country. We would love to hear.

In the mean time I will be sure to look up Malta tomorrow. You see? WordPress blogging is even improving my geography. Lol….💙💕👭👭👭👭💕💙

Almost Done the workweek

Almost done with the work shift. My feet feel like they are going to drop me.

Looking forward  to being home at midnight  to blog. My favorite  blogging  time of day.

Thank goodness I am off tomorrow.  I want to practice some Zentangles.

All of my ladies on first floor were happy to see me. I haven’t had that floor in a while.

I collected  lots of hugs to bring home with me in my heary. Two more old ladies to tuck into bed and kiss on the forehead goodnight,  then I will read your blogs.

Annie
