Sometimes I feel like no one reads this blog.
Except for my other half…………………..um……sometimes.
I say that because I really do not trust those WordPress people.
Ok….I’ll tell ya considering you asked.
Now after five years of writing this nonsense my followers that I have amassed are in the….um….er……hundreds. Say like about 200 or so. Which basically means nobody really cares about nonsense. Cept me of course.
Which is why I write these blogs in the first place. To amuse myself.
Isn’t it rather strange that after five years only two hundred people worldwide bother to read this blog. So, that said, which I just did, I really think WordPress is either not doing a good job of keeping stats on people’s blog sites, or……..I really suck at blogging.
Anyhow, I’m going with the “really sucking at blog writing” theory.
I say this because, as you know by the number of times I’ve posted a plea for donations to get this WWII book published to honor two pilots killed, only two people have made a donation.
EVEN THOUGH I stated all proceeds from this book will go to our local VFW so that they can erect a permanent memorial to these two young men. And even though I mentioned that I would include donors names in the book. Go figure.
Furthermore, and forsooth, the site I chose to host donations really pissed me off today. Besides taking a percentage of the donation fee, which I understood from the onset, they sent me an e-mail saying I had to sign up for a companion site, which also takes a cut, or….or….my account would be closed.
Sooooooo. I said to myself, “Oh Yeah!!!!” Not from me pal. And I shut down the original donation site link.
So, now, and I will NOT do any more blogs on asking for donations, I will instead just post a PayPal link which will suffice in place of that other site. (PayPal takes no percentage of donations so that means 100% of anything anyone contributes will go towards publishing the book and anything over the amount I need I will donate to the VFW until they erect that memorial)
I’ll let the dog ask…………………
I will still post the PayPal link at the bottom of each blog.
In closing, I’m still wondering why only 200 plus people read this stuff and that the number of followers hasn’t changed in five years.
Maybe this blog really does suck and WordPress just keeps pressing the “resend” button when it comes to posting stats. Or……………
Nah…..this blog really sucks.
