This post, rather unspectacular on its own represents the 750th post on the WordPress version of the Musings (plus of course some 80+ on Dinobase before then). Those posts total over 150 000 words (that’s a big sized paperback novel give or take) and there’s more than 1000 images of various kinds on there too.
While it’s normal to want more success for your blogging efforts, the Musings has racked up just a shade under 400 000 readers going back to June 2008, so this also represents a kind of 2.5 year anniversary on this platform as well. It’s also seen more than 4000 comments appear, though a great many of them are internal trackbacks and my own replies, which means I’m actually only getting about 1 comment per 200 readers which seems to me rather low.
All in all I’m rather happy with what I have done. While there are blogs and bloggers out there that leave me in the shade, I feel I’ve built up a pretty good collection of material over the years and generally managed to hit my target audience of ‘intermediates’ between the real experts and real basics. I hope this is proving fun and enjoyable for those reading, that’s really why I do it, and I hope to keep going, though again I’m running a bit short of both inspiration and images again. Encouragement, jpegs and ideas are all welcome.
