Today I got an email from someone I know casually. She told me that she was reading my blog because a friend told her about it, and the friend learned about it from her friend. I am getting word-of-mouth!
Very few people follow and I rarely get a comment, so sometimes I wondered if anyone was actually reading these poems. I'm getting about 50 hits a day now, and sometimes a lot more. I have over 2,500 hits so far. Were all these people landing on my page by accident. No! I have word-of-mouth!
I guess the readers of my blog just don't know that I really need the re-assurance provided by seeing the number of followers grow or getting comments.
It takes a lot to get a poem done everyday; a lot of days I just don't feel like doing it, but I do it anyhow. Sometimes I feel I should quit because probably no one is reading them anyhow. But then I get an email like the one I got today and it keeps me going.
Thank you, Mary!
