This is my last ever blog!
I will not have the opportunity to write again since being diagnosed with a serious illness call Bloggerhoea. There is only one known cure and that is total abstinence. It has been found that once people are diagnosed and acknowledge their problem, there can be no such thing as social blogging – total abstinence is critical for survival as the risk of relapse is extremely high.
So this is my last chance to share my innermost thoughts to the blogosphere.
I started my blogging journey in December 2011. Since then I have written hundreds of posts read by around 5,000 people. I checked the statistics to see what posts were most popular. The results are surprising – my post popular post was a poem that I DIDN’T write. (It is called “Clown” by Phoebe Hesketh in Poets and Poetry by Sadler/Hayllar/Powell)
Among the top ten there were three PHOTO blogs – so not much of my writing to be found there either! There was a lot of interest in two posts I did about job interviews and one about Baby Boomers – I actually wrote these ones 🙂 so that is encouraging! The remaining three included one about All Souls Day (2 November), one about blogging and one about the Kimberley Region of Western Australia. When I started my blog my goal was:
My blog, allaboutwordswa (aawwa) grew out of my desire to use my writing to share some of the lessons I learn in life through the people I meet, the places I’ve been, my life experiences and my reflections. I write about the search for the meaning of life, my experiences with ego and mindfulness, my love of wisdom and philosophy. I love to reflect on eternal questions, including relationships, social issues, politics of the day, religion and spirituality.
Mmmmmmm…did my blog deliver on what I promised? Not if I just look at my TOP TEN! But I kept on blogging regardless – now I can’t stop blogging….know what I mean? I hope they never find a cure for Bloggerhoea! And don’t believe a word about this blog – I WILL BE BACK 😉
