Might as well tell you: I have an appointment to meet with an editor next week to see how we might turn three years of blog posts into a book. Yes. Several readers have hinted at such a possibility and I’ve selected about 250 (of 998) posts that could stand on their own. All this thinking is preliminary, but I’m imagining something inspirational in nature; something to show how readers might reclaim their heart amid the chaos of everyday living. I’m grateful for the inspiration that keeps me writing (almost) every day and for the heart-felt responses from friends and strangers.
The statistics for this blog (a term derived from weblog) quantify its steady growth over time. Sixteen people are subscribers and receive alerts of new posts; the average daily views began with 18 in July of 2007 and now stand at 172. “How I learned to grieve” has become the most often viewed item (and the one that started all this during during a time of personal loss and transformation); it’s had 987 visits and continues to be checked every day.
I’m grateful for this vehicle — and you, its daily visitors and contributors — which challenges and supports my practice of conscious living for the benefit of sentient beings.
May all be free from fear.
May all be at ease.
May all be happy.
