Today is 1000petals 4th anniversary… a good reason to look back and to thank its every single reader!
I started this blog 4 years back with an intention to share my experiences and show the beauty of the world’s Spirit. Four years is not a big deal in a human life, but in a blogging life it’s quite a lot. Many people who were active at that time, including my 2 “blogging gurus” are not blogging any more… People come and go, as usual in life.
Let me tell you why I am still here and what my blogging treasures are.
What keeps me blogging?
– Still so much to observe and to share, I have 680 posts so far and still over 200 hundred to go until 1000 (petals) 🙂
– Feeling responsible towards my dear readers, whose numbers are constantly growing and whose interest and comments enrich my life and make me happy day by day.
Readership: 1000petals blog is being read by 30-40 thousand people monthly which is not much compared to top blogs but still quite a good number.
Comments: The number of comments: 10,650. Here I would like to note that most comments are of excellent quality, not just “nice post”. The readers engage into profound discussions delivering interesting facts and opinions which gives a high added value to the blog.
Who is my reader?
Although I always declare my spiritual practice of Sahaja meditaion on the blog, I am proud to note that this blog is being read and appreciated by people of all religions, various spiritual practices, atheists, and even people who are not at all interested in spiritual matters. Everyone feels welcome and that was an important point for me since the very beginning. I am happy to see that everybody can find something of interest.
I see my readers as friends and try to treat them accordingly. The best thing happens when there is a chance to meet in real life. Then the friendship start flourish even more!
Another thing I need to mention is the phenomenon if silent readers – as one can see, the people who comment on the posts are mostly the same, but there is a huge number of the so-called “silent readers” who never comment but always read. Imagine my joy when sometimes they do manifest themselves, for example looking for me to become Facebook friends.
The slogan of 1000petals blog is “The only truth I know is my own experience” and as it is, this blog itself has become for me a tremendous experience of learning, friendship, compassion, love and joy.
Thank you, dear all!
LOVE and loads of it,
