Welcome, this post is part of a 31 Days series. If you'd like to read the other posts they're in a nicely ordered list for you here.
Well y'all, my mom is here for a visit. It's been almost two years since she's been here, so we're gonna live life to the full during our time together.
What does she have to do with the 31 Days?
Here's the story.
I was grumbling.
My pages views had a nice little spike at the beginning of this event.
Not so much anymore.
Some faithful readers and friends have left heartening comments along the way. Blessings.
Some real life friends have wondered, "What are you writing about anyway? What's 31 Days? What's Green Acres?"
You can see my trouble, yes?
If people just aren't getting it, I've really got my work cut out for me as a writer, and although I enjoy writing, I don't describe myself as a writer. Too much responsibility.
So, I'm killin' myself a little to be here, and the story will get told.
I'm committed to capturing this legacy in the form of story.
But, my mom suggested that my posts have been a little on the "light side".
I've not been giving you enough to sink your teeth into...she wonders if you need a reason to stay.
See, my mom does have something to do with all this.
So, let's do a little experiment, ok?
This post is all pretty much writer's angst and there's a stark absence of anything "farmy".
Wonder what the page view stats will show tomorrow.
Will you come back?
What does this really tell me? You?
I've lost my way a little bit.
Perhaps I need to spend more than 1/2 an hour working on this.
Have I underestimated the commitment and overestimated my capacity?
I'm quite an inexperienced blogger.
Perhaps this is normal.
So, really, in the end, I'll probably lean into this a little longer, see if I can write something of greater substance/interest.
And, if not, no matter.
I'm here to chronicle the journey.
Not generate page views.
Thanks Nester for this opportunity. I'm grateful in spite of my silly rant above.
