Lately I haven’t been doing much of anything, and yet I’m exhausted. Don’t feel like writing. Don’t feel like blogging. I’m having trouble finding a book to keep me interested longer than one chapter. Too lazy to search for one on my Nook, never mind browse through a brick and mortar bookstore.
I think I’m a walking example of ‘lethargy’ — I love that word. Love its synonyms even more: sluggishness, stupor, torpor, languor, listlessness. That’s me. The only explanation I have for my condition is that’s it’s summer, and it’s hot.
The only thing that keeps me mildly amused is playing Castleville on Facebook, a very clever game that forces you to bug your friends all day by asking them to send you stupid random things, like a jellyfish or a wolf pelt. I’m sure they all hate me by now.
So if you don’t hear from me for a while and wonder if I’ve dropped off the planet, I probably have. Hopefully I won’t be gone too long.
Better go eat something <yawn>
One year ago today I wrote my first blog via WordPress, entitled Nancy Drew Unplugged. I had nothing but a few coins in my pocket and one big dream — to dominate the Blogiverse.
Thanks to my legions of fans, a.k.a. my blog followers and commenters, I’m closer to achieving that dream.
How close? I started off with about 20 followers, and 140 posts and one year later, I have over 100 if you don’t count Twitter followers, which I don’t, because technically they’re my Tweeple, not my Bloggies, and counting them artificially inflates my numbers.
I rarely look at blog stats, but apparently people have visited me over 10,000 times this year. It’s awe-inspiring. I realize there are bloggers out there who would consider these stats pitiful by comparison, but Rome wasn’t built in a day. My time will come.
So I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who took time out of their day to come visit me this year — it means a lot. I never thought a person could make friends via blogging, but it’s totally possible, and I’m grateful for the friendships I’ve made.
My eyes are tearing up, so I’ll stop there. Here’s a slice of virtual cake for you, I hope you enjoy it. Have a wonderful weekend, I love you all <sob>
