Back in January 2011 I decided to start a blog. I decided to make it a daily. This post (or maybe yesterday's...) is number 500.
There are people who have made blogging their full-time job and many have made good money from their efforts. Books, movies, TV shows...are just a few things that have befallen some bloggers. For me, I'm about a thousand visits before I reach 20K and I've earned exactly $29.50 creating (hopefully...) a fresh, creative blog each day since I started.
I think I got into the blogging game a little late. I keep reading headlines about how blogging is the new MySpace and it's on its way out. Maybe it is. Many of us still blogging would disagree. I see blogging as a way for expression to come out, even if no one--or very few--ever see the blog. Expression is good and definitely needed.
500 lbs is a quarter ton. 500 blog posts (for me...) is almost a year and a half of daily blogs. Thank you so much to anyone who has ever stopped by. It means a lot. Let's see what the next 500 days will bring...
