While traffic for this particular blog has dropped substantially, my two lottery blogs have seen a dramatic growth in search engine traffic. This has kept my morale up and generates enthusiasm to keep on blogging.
To keep myself stimulated, I've settled on routine of regularly visiting a few of the blogs who were active participants in the above networks. In particular, I enjoy stopping in and reading the posts of:
- Orient Lodge and learning about Aldon's political, professional, and personal involvements,
- Sharkbytes My Quality Day which has helped me weather the winter and enjoy the Michigan scenery
- Dickster's Random Thoughts which shares Dick's personal thoughts and the family's difficulties with dealing with an autistic child
- Some Assembly Required that is written as a personal diary documenting the life of an successful advertising executive in Texas
- Carmen's Chronicles , an old favorite and a frequent commenter on my blogs, who has been recently visiting and living in India
- Quick Blog Tips by Ben Barden (of CMFads fame), and Floor15 (which will be closing shortly)
- English Wilderness by John who posts beautiful pictures scenic UK locations
PS: And of course, I continue to miss postings by our old friend Ken Brown!
