As a blogger and unpublished author I’d like to thank the readers. Recently I made the 5,000+ hits on my blog and I couldn’t have done it without y’all! When I started this blog I didn’t think that it would be something that I would keep up with, nor anyone would read. I was very wrong! Yay, someone’s reading my stuff! Now it’s, I wonder what my faithful readers/subscribers will say about this! While it has been a struggle at times to come up with topics to write about, I thrive on the anticipation of the day-to-day topics! This leads me to a new though, Why do we blog?
For most people there might be many reasons (keeping family and friends up to date, publicize your project(s), give your opinions and/or reviews, and to use your blog somewhat of a journal). My blog is about all the above, but mainly it’s for my readers. I write for the people who read my blog and take something away from it and I write for the people who come across my blog and are generous enough to comment. I write for the readers because without them, the writing wouldn’t be nearly as rewarding.
Here’s to another great year of blogging!
As someone who has only been blogging for about 3-4 months I will agree it’s amazing how much I have enjoyed blogging & how much it’s helped me.

Thanks so much for your comment! Good luck to you! 🙂
Congrats on the wonderful stat! It’s always nice to learn that people truly care what you have to say.
Like you, I blog for my readers. I started blogging for myself, for the reasons you mentioned, until I realized that what I said mattered in some small way to a few people in this big world.
I think the blogs where the bloggers care enough to connect with their readers is the very best one around. Keep up the admirable job!
