Well, will you look at that? One of my goals for 2018 was to double my traffic at the blog. In 2017, I was just over 2,000 visitor. As of July 25th, I had over 4,000 visitors for the year – just seven months in!
I wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of you who have read, and who have commented. For those of you who are bloggers, you know that sometimes in seems like you are just writing to “the air” and not sure if anyone is paying any attention to your thoughts and ideas. Sometimes you spend a lot of time on a topic, craft your message exactly, and then …. Nothing.
I would also like to thank all the folks whose blogs I have read, thought about, and commented on. I do love the community that has been built by FIRE folks. The ideas, the feedback, and just the life stories. I especially like it when folks write about their struggles, and how everything isn’t perfect.
In our “facebook and twitter” universe, it is often easy to feel that everyone else is doing it better, and is having a much better time. All you see are their vacation pictures, great restaurants, and great times. Yet I am sure they are having their own struggles and challenges. That is why it is good we can be so frank in our community.
So thanks again for tuning in, and I’ll continue to write and reach out to you as I can.
Mr. 39 Months
