NaBloPoMo- Day 23

So we’ve made it two thirds of the way throught the NaBloPoMo with a post every day.

It’s all about the figures and not about the figures. The numbers are a bit odd but they make me feel positive about what I’m doing.

I reached six hundred followers this week, which is a milestone that goes un noticed. The big 500 was a little while ago and got a mention.

I also had a notification of two years since I started my blog even though the first 15 months were a bit more tumbleweed than anything else.

That has all changed since February and now I’ve got four hundred posts under my belt; the majority of thick have been posted in nine and a half months.

Then 28,000 hits is on the horizon along with 5,000 comments. These are the numbers that amaze me. It’s the sheer volume over time.

Yesterday I read a blog post where a fellow blogger had read about something on my blog that had inspired them to not buy new clothes for a month. That’s the thing that gets me. The idea that I’ve influenced the behaviour of another person; someone I’ve never met. It’s really touching.


Meanwhile, it’s day 23 of World Vegan Month. I’ve managed vegan breakfast and lunch every day so far. And a fair few vegan dinners.

So November is going well.

      It’s not been too bad. I think I’ve formed good habits now and theres a range of things happening.

    You’re doing great. Consistent posting seems to be the key.
    I’m tied up in a bunch of business processes and figuring out this self hosted business, so my post volume has suffered. I left behind over 500 followers when I moved. ;(.
    congrats on the success from your hard work.
    Cheers – Andy
