Admittedly, my blog has morphed into something it was never intended to be. I’m not sure what it was intended to be, actually, but I don’t think I ever intended for it to become this sort of outlet for me.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
(Note: I’m not sure if or how much WordPress pays their monkeys….)
Here’s an excerpt:
4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 26,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 6 Film Festivals.
Thank you to everyone who has visited my blog over the last year. I’ve made some wonderful friends through blogging, and I appreciate everything you have to offer. Those of you who have become regulars here have been enormously helpful or funny or both, and I appreciate that you continue to ‘listen’ to me.
A friend was recently asking me why I blog. Why or how I am able to put such personal and, sometimes, emotional pieces of my life out there for the whole world to read.
Here’s why I blog:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of [the universe]. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of [the universe] that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
~ Marianne Williamson
I could write an introduction, but who would read it?
No one. Because.....
THIS IS THE PRESENTS POST! Goodies for all! Remember that Ashley and I invite you to write your own Festivus-inspired post on your blog. You can drop hints on who you gifted, muse over who gave you your gift, or air your grievances about anything! Just let me know if you write a post so I can link to it on…
eldeerly swinger blog
Yup . Someone used that search string and found my blog.
I am both amused and mortified.
And, yes, that’s how it was spelled as well. Maybe they were looking for old deer swingers…?
First, my 500th like, and now this:
Congratulations on your 50th follower on Meizac’s Blog.
