BLOG – One Month In – Thank You Dear Readers

Leaving a successful WordPress free blog spot is always a bit nerve-racking. I recently left a site that had 755 followers, lots of Views, Likes and Comments as the 3 Gig media capacity had been reached.

I am about one month and 34 posts in on this new blog site and just reached 100 Followers. A milestone, for sure and I need to thank each and every one of you who Followed, Liked and Commented and others who may have read and moved on.

Thanks You All

After working for 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 3+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wanted me to do has been rewarding. While I still miss the social aspect of working with a team of great people, I have managed to keep in touch with many from my former team and I have many friends and family members who now fulfill this part of my life. Now that my Patty has retired, we are able to spend more time in pursuits and with people who are near and dear to us. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may not become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. That’s why I couldn’t do it and just paid the money. I figure it’s a bit of “found money” as I don’t drink coffee, rarely drink alcohol and take my lunch on work days so I justified the yearly cash on that. Congrats to you for working at building up a new following.

    1. Agreed, it is a hassle, but I kind of look at it as a bit of a refresh. My 755 followers only translated into about 30-40 readers, which is what I now have with 100 followers. I guess I just like a challenge. Thanks for commenting Bernie and for being a loyal reader. Allan

    1. I thought about it, but if you pay for a blog spot and then stop paying, your site is suspended and not accessible. If you never pay, your site remains accessible. I do not like to be blackmailed (and I am cheap) so I continue moving along. Thanks for coming along for the ride. Allan

    1. You have been following along since the beginning, so I’d say that is loyal and I’d say that is consistent. Thanks for reading and joining in the conversation. Allan
