Hundreds and thousands. Not.

Do you blog? If so, do you care about your stats? I can’t decide whether I do or not. I mean, I care about those who are kind enough to stop by and share a moment or two. Sometimes even say hello. Hello back, by the way. But I’m not driven to bump up numbers. Perhaps I should be. After all, I’m self employed now. Did I mention that?

Yes, I resigned a couple of weeks ago in a respectful nod to Uncle Parkinsons. Who would have thought it? Progressive disease indeed. And in a wholly derogatory two fingers salute to PD I am now freelancing and hoping this is a beginning not an end. I resolved to Choose Life in January and almost a year later I feel back on track.

So, back to the stats….I’m happy you guys pop in I really am. Chez Stitch will hum a little more in the future I hope. It ain’t over ’till the fat lady sings and 2014s goal is weight loss, so you’re stuck with me a while longer. Sorry!

    Well, you know that I blog. Do I care about the stats? A little bit. It would be very disheartening to make the effort to put something out there and discover that nobody read it.

    Blogging with Parkinson’s has been very successful, by my standards. Strangers read it! And sometimes, they comment!

    The (genuine) comments mean a lot to me, more than the stats (which I am inclined to doubt on account of the spammers).

    Second comment to say GOOD LUCK with the freelancing.

    I am still contemplating ditching the desk job for the uncertainty of living behind an easel…

        One step at a time. We are in the process of setting up a lease agreement for an office/studio/storage space in the village…
