The year after tumblr
Well, it's been a full year since many of us, myself included, deleted our tumblr accounts and sought greener pastures. In my case, the new blog has brought a level of personal satisfaction that I didn't have on tumblr, mainly because I have found a number of new on line friends and collaborators who are not as superficial as the typical tumblr type. This is despite the fact that according to Google Analytics I now have just over 10,000 regular viewers as opposed to about 32,000 followers on tumblr at the end. (Google tracks casual and occasional visitors differently, so there are probably more than 10,000 if we count those who just look in from time to time.) My page view count is up to 1,250,000, and I suppose that's impressive. The new format requires a bit more effort for you viewers to communicate with me, but what I get has been more meaningful. Also, I routinely got trolls on tumblr, and that hasn't happened here. Overall, I am happy with the way things have gone, and I want to thank all of you who choose to participate.
