I have a small blog on WP and I’m ashamed that at times I am somewhat envious of those who have a larger following than I do. I have to admit that I wonder what it would be like to have a blog with several thousand followers and hundreds of views every day. And then I wonder what my email would look like after receiving notices where people may have liked this or may have commented on that. And then I wonder what I’m doing wrong and why it’s not growing like I would like. What’s it like to be in the big time on WP?
And then I look around at my garden and I realize that my blog is like my garden in as much as it grows in its own good time. It’s limited by what I plant and how much space that I give it and how much time that I give to care for it. And then I look at how I live and where I live and I realize that I’m comfortable in my quiet life and in my quiet house. I like to think that I get to know some of routine followers a bit better each time that they visit just like we’re sitting down and sharing a cup of coffee or tea.
I don’t think I’m made or intended for the big show. Here’s to us and those like us with smaller blogs. There’s lots of us around here.
