The Last Blog?

Is this the last blog of the year? Is this the last blog ever?. Nearly 10,000 people have read this blog. I have no way of knowing whether that's 10,000 different people, or one person, 10,000 times. There's no rhyme or reason to the number of hits in a day, and sometimes my biggest days are when I haven't written anything at all.

This blog is banned in some places, and that might be a good thing. Sometimes I spend more time posting the blog than I do writing it. "We can tell," some of you might say. This will be the first year that I did not write a new novel. I put the majority of my morning writing into my blog.

I do have enough material in here to actually turn it into a book, maybe too. Some of my blogs are evergreen and will stand the test of time, others are dated by the end of the day, some of them are even dated by the afternoon. I've heard that my best blogs come from the heart. I would agree with that.

I do have to make some decisions on where to go with this blog. I can try to take it to the next level and spend thousands of dollars marketing it. I can let it die a natural death and never post again. I am going to take some time before the end of the year to figure out where to take it.

I do want to thank all of you, the thousands of people who've clicked on me this year. (Or the one person who clicked a thousand times.)

  1. Yes, that was me doing a whole lot of blog-clicking! Sorry, I just like your writing and your unique spins on such a diverse array of topics. I for one would like to see more, a neverending storyline of JonBlogs enlightening and amusing us forever more.

    But of course you need to do what is best for your life, career, and marriage.

    John Orman, just one of many your many fans.
    Best Wishes, and Happy Holidays!
