1000 Page Views!

1000 page views! I did it. Thank you to everyone who reads my ramblings! I know 1000 page views doesn't mean that my blog has been actually read 1000 times, but still it feels like quite and accomplishment for me.

I started this blog as a fun way to chronicle Kahlen's early years. I never thought I had anything too interesting to talk about until she came along.

Much has changed since then. I now live hundreds of miles from my little granddaughter. I've struggled to find things to write about now and then, but for some reason felt compelled to continue anyway.

Knowing that people actually read my blog feels really good. Is it ego that drives me to continue? Is it a narcissistic idea that people may actually think what I have to say might be interesting? After all my blog is about me and my life. Is this all consuming desire to share my thoughts merely a conceited ego trip?

Well, I hope it is not coming off like that. I am home alone a lot and it is fun to share my thoughts with others. Talking to Bazinga and Mia is therapeutic to an extent, but knowing actual humans are reading my words is comforting, so I thank all of you that have read them. Without you I would have never reached this little goal of mine. I know it is silly, but it makes me very happy!
