Around the first of every month, I check my website traffic.
I check page views, visits, which pages people are reading, how people find me,
and from what part of the world they reside. I don’t usually share website
traffic here on the blog, but today I feel called to bring it up.
I used to be a financial analyst, so the website’s charts
and statistics are easy, if not fun, for me to review. The data is available to
me, but I don’t use it for strategy or to plan content. I write what I feel
like writing. I share what’s happening with me, what I’m learning through my
spiritual awakening, and what I experienced with breast cancer. I write to
share my wisdom in the hopes it may help someone experiencing something similar.
I write to be of service to the collective and because this was the sort of
thing I wish existed when I needed to hear it. I also write because I enjoy
writing and co-creating with Spirit.
With all that said, I do look to see if anyone is reading,
and to see if it is still serving a purpose for me to continue writing this
blog. I also check to determine if I want to renew my website and continue with
the blog. The thing that made me want to share the background information about
the traffic is…the traffic. You, reading now, and all of you that read my blog.
The traffic to my website and specifically my blog in recent
months is breaking records and I am so grateful to you and to everyone who
reads it. Over 5,500 of you visit my website each month. People from 55
countries read my blog. I am so very grateful to all of you.
I know you have a lot going on in your life. I know that you
are being pulled in many directions. You could be doing so many other things,
and you choose to come here and read my blog posts. I am grateful to you for
spending your time and energy reading what I write.
Sometimes I wish we could have a two-way conversation, but my
website host does not allow comments on blogs. Or, if they do, I have yet to
find it. That means we aren’t having a conversation. I write and you read. It
works for now, and for that, I am truly, deeply grateful. And, just between us, in
my gratitude practice, I send you love.
Today’s image is mine and of me in gratitude for you.
For those of you in the United States, I hope you enjoy your
4th of July Independence Day holiday.
For those of you in other parts of the world, may you be
safe and well.
I love you.
