Please pardon a little tooting of one's own horn.
This is the 2001st post since inDECATUR was started one year, one month, and 6 days [402 days] ago. That's an average of about 5 posts a day.
The posts vary widely in the amount of work required to create them, from searching the net and posting a simple annotated link to attending meetings, taking notes and photos, doing internet research, editing and annotating images, and doing lots of typing (perhaps too much). Sometimes a little covert activity is required. [Agent 00? occasionally helps with that]. And, the number of valued "informers" continues to grow.
Quantity and quality are two different things. You are the judge of that for each post.
There are now MILLIONS of blogs. Thousands are started every day. They are like turtle eggs laid on the beach. Many (maybe most) of them don't last a year, and far less ever reach even 1K posts. Like a child who wants a pet, a blogger finds out a blog requires more care and feeding than he/she is willing to expend.
Has it been worth it? Certainly not in financial terms. Financially, and otherwise, it's been a monumental waste of time, so far. There are healthier, more fulfilling things to do. But, some have said it's useful to them, and that provides the motivation to continue it.
Readership is steadily growing as people stumble upon it. More comments (pro or con) would be MOST APPRECIATED. On the other hand, open discussion can lead to complications, as another Decatur blog has found lately.
So, Toot! Toot! (for whatever it's worth).
Thanks for visiting, commenting, and providing tips.
