Anyway, the 3k is not money or kilometers or cheapo 3 karrot gold. (is there such a thing?)
It represents the 3,000 page views that I've gotten on this blog. I just hit this number today, on my birthday.
And that, my friends is a true gift to me. One you have been giving since January.
Yes, a good two thirds of those page views have to be from my family (they are generous that way), but that still leaves a fair chunk of page views left to people unrelated to me.
Your interest and remarks have both fueled and rewarded my efforts.
I have felt daunted on and off by the fact that there are so many examples of excellent and amazing blog writing one click away on the internet.
I have thought of this quote when I've considered stopping:
Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang the best. ~ Henry Van DykeIn my very first post I wrote,
Thanks for joining me in this forest and listening to this song.CS Lewis said, "We read to know we are not alone." I have lately become convinced that we often write for the very same reason.
I hope you'll stick around for the next 3k. : )
