WordPress blogging is fun. I get to write and publish and meet other bloggers and readers. I find out a lot about myself and receive enormous amounts of encouragement. I honestly don’t know what would have happened to my mind in the last few months if I hadn’t been gifted with all of the support.

Especially in hard times, we need each other. Now that the good times are peeking through, I’m focusing on participating more in the blogs I follow (and hope to follow), which means reading them, commenting on them, commenting on comments, and simply being there like so many were there for me.

One of my favorite features provided by WordPress is the analytics. People from across the globe visit my blog. The majority of visitors come from the United States, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom. I can also pinpoint the city, state and the referral site!

The most interesting analysis to date has been the reoccurring (almost daily) visits by a specific reader (not a fellow blogger) who comes from Springfield, Virginia and enters via pocaipainting.com. If you happen to be that reader, thank you so much for your interest in my blog. It seems you’re especially interested in anything and everything I post about sociopaths, Escaping the Boy: My Life with a Sociopath, and abuse. I hope you’re learning about yourself the evil among us.

To the rest of my readers and fellow bloggers, Namaste!

  3. Wow it’s inspiring to see how blogging helps other’s. I have a modest 34 followers but just knowing that I am reaching out to people is helping me. Blogging has saved my soul over the past 6 months. I didn’t realise the analytics could prove so useful, I shall have to learn to navigate my way around that asap. Keep doing the good work you do.

    • I didn’t know how much blogging would help me, either! And it doesn’t matter how many followers you have; it’s all about the quality of your followers and how much they contribute by either reading, commenting, sharing, reposting, tweeting, etc. I’m sure some of my follwoers like to read and laugh at me. I laugh at me, too, on some days. There are others who read, get it, but leave no comments EVER because not everyone is comfortable with putting themselves out there. And that’s where the analytics help and the page views help. People are making it to your blog, so just keep writing. You’re helping someone, somewhere. 🙂

  4. I was so very excited the first time I noticed someone from Australia (Australia!) was reading my posts. Ireland I expected since my dear friend ran off as a Fullbright and stayed as a wife. US, well, duh.
    I’m up to 31 followers, but, more importantly, I’m following others. Every new post in my reader is reassurance that we have survived it to another day.

  6. Paula, you were one of the first people I identified with, in the early days of my healing process. You, more than once, pulled me through some very dark, difficult times. I think of you as a friend, and not just a “blogging buddy” 🙂

    You have been a blessing to me, and I can’t begin to express how much I appreciate you!

    • I have enjoyed reading your blog. It’s evident that you are blossoming and exeriencing less and less darkness and more joy. It’s been a true gift to connect with you and share. It seems crazy, but I think of you as a friend, also. I have a feeling that one day we will meet each other. I just have that feeling. 🙂

    • I would LOVE to meet with you, Judy, Bethany, and so many others! Coffee would be great…and ice cream 🙂 MUST have ice cream! I really hope your feeling turns into premonition…you little psychic, you! lol! I have been thinking about some way we could all make a plan to meet. I know we are probably so far away from eachother, but it could happen, right? That would be GREAT!
