Hello Everyone, Welcome to the blog I started in earnest after Christmas. I suppose the song “Only the Lonely” could apply to newbie bloggers. You feel like you’re talking to yourself in an empty room. I can’t tell you how many times I thought about quitting. Some days, I had only one visitor. Other days, maybe 15 max (most of them me.)
I took out an ad on Joanna Goddard’s amazing blog, A Cup of Jo, and finally there was traffic. It’s continued to increase steadily since then — because of the help of many kind and generous bloggers. (Thank you!) I’m happy I stayed with it because something amazing happened this week: Blogger.com named English Muse a “Blog of Note.” My site visits are up tenfold.
So please bookmark me and come back to visit in the days and weeks ahead. I have lots to tell and show you. In the meantime I want you to know: I’m so happy that you’re here.
My warmest regards,
PS: I’m not sure who is in charge of deciding on the blogs of note. Whoever they are, I love them!
