I started The Daily Hottenots just shy of one month ago, and it impresses me how much it has grown in such a short time! Sure, I don’t have hundreds of thousands of views every day, and I don’t get hundreds of thousands of comments on my posts, but people are reading, and people are commenting. And they’re sharing my content with other people!
Now I know that someone other than my mom is reading, and that there are one or two of you out there who actually like what I have to say….
Thanks, you guys, for giving me a reason to get up and do this every day. When I started this thing, I thought that it probably wouldn’t get many bites—especially from friends of mine—because I have a habit of starting and stopping blogs.
In the past, I have had Dadaist attitude when it comes to blogging. The second my blog gets a bit of popularity, I make it disappear. But I promise you that the Daily Hottentots won’t disappear anytime soon. I am having a lot of fun participating in the UBC and meeting other bloggers (in the virtual world of the internet, not real life…so far). And after nearly 10 years of on again/off again blogging without a purpose, I feel that I actually have a real message to send now. I want this to continue for many years to come.
Again, thank you everyone for all of your support and encouragement and please do not hesitate to let me know what YOU as readers really want to see from me. I welcome all feedback.
