I want to thank anyone who is reading this post–and others who won’t get around to this one–for helping me conduct a successful experiment with this blog in July. It seems necessary to me that if I’m going to be a successful freelance writer, this blog needs to be active, involved, and growing.
I’m not looking for things to go viral and I’m not expecting 100,000 followers or a million views; rather, this is a place where potential agents, publishers, producers, or anyone else higher up the chain from me–who might be in a position to help me find or place work–can come and see if the dude is actually doing any writing. These pages are designed to answer that question.
I set out in early July to grow the blog in posts and readers. I passed out business cards, which had nothing but the domain address on them, and I texted.
Then I wrote.
I posted 36 times in July, and those posts and the communications helped me reach 192 visitors, who combined for 556 views. My previous best month was 149 views.
So, thanks; you are part of that, and I can’t tell you how much it means. I hope August sees more growth, and I hope something you read here will make you smile or laugh or think in a way that is pleasing.
Be well and joyful.
Much love, many prayers.
