Looking back at my 2011 blogs…

First and foremost, I just want to welcome my latest subscribers to my little land of blogging. I do check each and every subscriber I have, just to make sure none of them are spammers. A special hello to my faithful readers from around the world who always take a peek to my blog to see if I posted anything. I’ve not posted as much this month because I’ve been sick most of December. Just when I got over my last cold, I was slammed with another one, hence the random postings here and there. Welcome to my 145th blog post of 2011.

I began blogging back in March of this year to mostly document my life and world events that might affect my life as it may be. I’ve learned from other successful bloggers what to post and what not to post. I’ve also learned that it’s ok to post an indepth blog about feelings once in a while and allow complete strangers to read my very personal thoughts. I’m a private person to begin with and have the ability to write personable without really getting personal, but once in a while, I just can’t help it and I wear my heart on my sleeves. Thank you for understanding and letting me open my heart just a little more.

It hasn’t been quite a year yet of blogging, but for now, allow me to show you some interesting facts and personal thoughts regarding stats and blogs I’ve written during the year 2011.

If you are a WordPress blogger, you’ll understand these stats:
