Blog Update for July

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.

    1. What nice things to say, Dar. Thanks. I’d be interested to hear any thoughts you have on the individual pieces. Love you, girl. You’re in our prayers.
