I'm going to try to keep this post short and sweet, as I myself am exhausted from a beautiful, wonderful Mother's Day weekend.
I like to end on a positive note, so I'll begin on the negative. I had less interaction this year, than last year. But I expected that going in. My Tender Years theme about childhood memories was simple and plain. Also, I was a minion last year and was everywhere. This year I was not a minion and was lucky to visit my 6 list blogs a day, answer my comments and drop in on a few of the many blogs I wanted to follow through the Challenge. All together, I had about 1200 less visits than last year.
On the plus side, in many ways, this year rocked!!! I had a core of people who really got into my Tender Years theme and visited almost every post! I found many new blogs to follow, who seem to be the type that I love the most: just real people blogging about life. To me, that is what blogging is. As the year progresses, and I see just what unfolds on these "new" to me blogs, I'll be spotlighting and sharing. Statistics wise, even though this year did not out do last year. it did surpass any of the other three years I was in the Challenge.
So, I'm chalking this year up as a win, win. I gained some new, looks to be faithful, followers and found some new blogs I think I can really love. Some of you will be seeing me coming back on slow Saturdays reading A to Z posts I missed. Some of you won't; not because I don't care, but because there just aren't enough hours in a day.
For those not familiar yet with Caneyhead as usual, I do my own thing called "I Saw it on Facebook", where I take an image I saw on Facebook and expound upon it. Sometimes thoughtful, sometimes humorous or tongue in cheek. You'll also see faith posts, as I am a professing, Bible believing, born again Christian. There are also personal posts about life in Caneyhead, post about things that matter to me, posts regarding issues I care about. Occasionally my warped sense of humor and random train of thought take a bow here as well. I do not have certain days for certain things. Life doesn't work that way. You'll likely see one to three posts a week from me.
Thanks to our Challenge hosts, minions and helpers! And I certainly hope I"ll see every one of you back here next year for 2017! If you want to see some more reflections, just click the image above.
