For example, today my readership was down markedly but my earnings were up. My last post about bean salad was not a winner exactly and the one before that about expats dogs did even worse. BUT...in spite of my poor showing today, did I tell you that my earning were up. Strange but true!
When I look at what people were reading I found post on How to be a Snow Bird, How to Add "Reply" Function to the Comment Section, and a post with a List of Kindle Books. All of those post are quite old. The post on Happy Hour and Why Do We Reread Books I wrote last week also made the cut. I suppose an experienced blogger would say that those older posts were "evergreen" meaning that even after a period of time, people still want to find that information.
Although things go very well around here, sometimes things are not so perfect. A fellow blogger wanted to write about this blog but could not get the link to work. I have had this happen before. It seems that, with this blog at least, you have to add the www in the address. It will not work without it. I was disappointed that I had missed that opportunity but I suppose she might come back.

We are going to Mexico in September and I need to get myself in good physical shape...which I am not. So I have begun wearing my Fitbit Flex again, I have it synced with my computer but the 15,000 steps I walked today show up for last Thurs. Darn. I walked 18 holes of golf, my husband's Fitbit shows 15,000+ and my read out shows just over 6,000. If my husband walked 15,000 steps I surely took 20,000...I have to take 2 steps for his one. I want my statistical reward and I want it now! I may need to meditate to get my "perfect" back!
So life is almost perfect. The blog is doing good and in spite of the small glitches, I am not messing with any of it...life or the blog that is.
Have a great week!
