It never ceases to amaze me what draws huge hits to “hugmamma’s mind, body, and soul.”
When I participated in the “365 photo challenge,” certain posts attracted hundreds and hundreds of viewers. I soon attributed my choice of words in the caption as to why all the hoopla. I think people expected to see naked bodies frolicking about, or something along those lines. Especially when one “hugmamma” is the blogger. You’d think it read “hot mama.” Makes me laugh, just reminiscing about my naivete in thinking I was being recognized as a…good writer…and better-than-average photographer.
Just recently my blog experienced a tremendous number of hits. One day alone saw almost 900 visitors. Now that my numbers are back to normal, I’ve determined that the fuss was about “Dilbert“ and his creator’s, Scott Adams, articles about taking risks.
I’ve no magic bullet to attracting viewers to “hugmamma’s mind, body, and soul.” I’m certain never to be a candidate for WordPress‘s “freshly pressed.” I’m almost certain I’m not their cup of tea…or coffee. Anyway, they’ve millions from which to choose. And there are bloggers who’ve got the know how to get chosen; while others just happen into…the right place…at the right time.
So as my readership floats back to earth, I just wanted to thank those of you who get me…as a writer…and person. I’m just one of you…up one day, down the next…but still happy…
…to be alive…and writing…
Your blog’s photos and writing are entertaining, inspirational and funny. No one can predict what will draw readers. At one point, I thought … what matters most is that I write what I feel passionate about. What follows then is just icing on the cake.
Here’s to more frosting … pile it on.
Ha, ha! I’ll give you more frosting than you’ll ever want…so keep reading.
And you’re so right. I never know what might appeal…so I write about my likes…dislikes…always with an eye toward affecting others’ lives…for the better.
hugs for letting me know…you think my style’s okay… 🙂 and i’d like to return the compliment… 😉

I enjoy my days more…knowing there are like-minded souls in the world…in love with writing…and life. Hugs! 🙂
You are like me, blogging for the sheer fun of it. I do enjoy reading your posts, glad to be alive and part of the world wide blogosphere. Keep on with your fun posts.
Thanks for your support and kind words, Maggie. Isn’t that what we should be doing in our short lives…having fun. It doesn’t have to cost much. After all, here we are having fun…for free. And making wonderful new friends…from heretofore…total strangers around the globe.
I can’t do everything the young ‘uns can do with technology…but a snippet will do. 😉
Keeping ones mind active with such a wide range of thoughts and topics is the appeal. It’s like a present and you never know what’s insided until you open it.
Every day’s a present…to be sure. And some are filled with surprises, as you say. We just have to go with the flow…and live. 😉
