A Blogging Thank You

This is a short post, but it is just my way of saying a big ‘Thank You’, to everyone who reads, follows, comments, and ‘likes’ posts on my blog. After six years, the blog is more vibrant than ever, with a diverse readership, and some truly wonderful people following. And to those brand new followers, you are not forgotten. You are most welcome, and it is really great to see that you are discovering how to become part of this community.

I get over 100 visitors a day, and around 200 views every day too. I cannot tell you how pleased that makes me, and how much I genuinely cherish all my wonderful blogging friends, wherever in the world they may live. An extra shout goes out to everyone who follows my fiction serials and short stories. The fact that you get involved, invest in the characters, and leave such amazing comments makes my old heart glad.

I have to tell you that I am one happy blogger. What started as a random journal has become a huge part of my life. I have met so many genuine people, from countries all over the planet. And I didn’t even have to leave my small office room to do that. If I ever win the lottery, I will visit you all in person. (If you want me to, of course.) That’s a promise.

But meanwhile, I will continue to enjoy our communication, interaction, and in so many cases, real friendship. My heart goes out to you, it really does.

Best wishes as always. Pete. πŸ™‚

  2. A lovely post, Pete. I always enjoy clicking on the link to see what you have to say whether it’s your ‘thinking aloud’ or a story (as you know with the serials I wait until the end). I hope you do win the lottery and come to visit in Scotland. Try to pick a day it’s not raining, though!

      1. Great, I look forward to reading it. I’ve been very tempted some days to just take a peep but I’ve resisted. And great that you might make it to Dumfries (I’m actually in Castle Douglas about 18 miles west of Dumfries). Lots of lovely places for walking Ollie!

  3. So is this your blogoversary, or are you just feeling extra happy today? As someone else commented your blog is popular because it is about YOU. Not what you think people should read or for making money. And many of us appreciate you sharing your life with us. I for one am a happy follower of Beetleypete and Ollie. xx

      1. Feeling happy is a good state to be in. I wish I could say the same, but things are getting me down at the moment, plus the cold won’t go away, feeling tired all the time and I have a stiff neck from the pillows in this cottage! I just want to go home…

        1. I was only happy for one day. πŸ™‚
          It’s not my usual state of mind, I assure you.
          Sorry to hear you are not feeling so good. This is a difficult time of year, and as we get older, I think we get more unsettled, rather than less. x

      1. I don’t care whether we agree on things or not … The one thing I can agree on whole heartedly is that you are my friend and that means more to me than anything —I value you too — I cherish the fact that God gives me faithful friends like you.
