This week I passed two modest Internet milestones: More to Come… welcomed the 4,000th visitor and I reached 100 “friends” on my Facebook page.
I take the blog milestone as the more satisfying. My children won’t even let me friend them on Facebook, so I don’t put a great deal of effort into rounding up friends or in keeping my status updated. (My most recent status update is from last Tuesday when I said I was ready for more news about the game of baseball and less (or no) news about A-Rod. I still feel that way, so why change.)
More to Come… is much more like writing letters to friends. The blog now averages almost 25 readers a day, which is fine with me. And occasionally someone picks something up I’ve written and spreads it around, which is nice recognition as well. That actually happened today, although the link was to a slightly altered version of my recent Readyville Mill post that was also posted on the blog at PreservationNation, the National Trust web site. Mike West, writing in the Murfreesboro Post, picked it up and hopefully sent a few readers to my place of employment as well.
Wherever you read it, thanks for visiting, thanks for reading, and thanks for the wonderful comments.
More to come…
