As the day approaches, and so many bloggers are visiting family, busy hosting, or taking that much-needed blogging break, I thought I would have a quick recap of the blogging year at Beetleypete.
First of all, my thanks as always to all those followers. The ones who comment and engage, just add a ‘Like’, or read anonymously. Whoever and wherever you are, I send my seasonal wishes, and a huge genuine “THANK YOU!”
2019 has seen the highest ever views in one day on my blog, and a real increase in followers. Most of them genuine, I am pleased to say. After more than seven years working hard at hopefully being a ‘Good Blogger’, I am happy to report that it is still going strong, and I have an audience for whatever I write about. That could be complaints about the rain, my dog Ollie chasing deer, or a film review. It is also sometimes lengthy fiction serials, which I seem to have become addicted to writing.
Each of the subjects that frequently get the ‘beetleypete treatment’ attracts its own regulars, and I couldn’t be happier about that.
I would like to also thank those followers who used to follow but have moved on. I appreciated your time and attention when you were still around.
I send my condolences to the families of any bloggers who have sadly passed away during 2019, or have become too ill to continue with blogging.
You will all be missed by me, I assure you.
Extra thanks to those of you who have reblogged and tweeted any of my posts or Twitter feed, and also to everyone who kindly submitted a guest post to be published on my blog.
The wonderful community we are a part of continues to inspire me, and so you can expect more of the same, in 2020.
My sincere best wishes to you all, and to those who celebrate it,
