One Year Anniversary Of The Bellbottom Blog
That’s right. One year. Actually, Jan. 6 was the anniversary date but in keeping with the laid back, bellbottom approach, we are celebrating today.
A year ago I had just gotten to 100 followers on Twitter and decided to finally make an attempt at writing a blog.
Ken and Lisa helped with a name.
We were off and running.
According to WordPress, we have had about 1900 views in the last year. Not bad considering I don’t promote this blog very much. Maybe 3 mentions on Twitter each time I write something.
I have been pleasantly surprised to have gone a whole year without any negative comments. Not ONE. Even when I wrote about politics.
In the last year, I have written 76 posts. I took off the last part of the year while my wife was home recovering from shoulder surgery with the exception of a few posts. It was a nice opportunity to spend time together. (Except for the whole surgery and therapy part)
I wrote about family, Scooter Store, childhood memories, music, and , yes, bellbottoms.
I tried to have a regular Friday Potpourri post which met with mixed success.
I wrote a serialized story about my wife and I and our first year of being together. Of all the stuff I have written, that is the one I am happiest about.
So….what does the future bring, you ask? I think there will be more regular posts this year. I do have to decide how to promote this space a little better. I treasure everyone of you who have commented or helped spread the word on Twitter. I really do.
I think it is time for me to make a little more effort. Maybe add pics or videos or links. That is a BIG maybe. Technology is not my friend.
In any event, I hope it is interesting enough to earn your continued support.
Thanks for the last year and as we go forward,
