This blog has been in existence since 2009 and now has nearly 200 essay-length posts on it. I created it as an 'etude' for my fiction writing: a mental finger-stretching exercise to limber up for penning mysteries. In the beginning, I was lucky to get ten hits a week and I marveled that anyone would take the time to find it.
I humbly recognize that, on a blogging readership scale of one to ten, mine barely makes the needle move. My wife's website, www.BettyOnGardening.com, now routinely draws 300 visits every day and is Google's top-of-the-heap sites for information on topical things like impatiens blight.
Thanks for reading,
