Rambling on reaching 4 year blog milestone March 16, 2013

Coming up this month is a personal milestone for my blog. The milestone is my blog birthday. It has been four years since my initial rambling. Or, what that a rumination? Either way, like most new bloggers, I posted frequently in the beginning. Now I have settled into a consistent rhythm and learned a lot about myself, blogging and visitor feedback.

Happy Birthday

As is typical with this type of milestone, I am a little reflective. I am grateful and very appreciative that WordPress provides this platform. Also, I must give a shout out to my regular followers. Thank You all for subscribing. Reading a few of the early posts, it all seems so simple now. I have enjoyed blogging about a lot of different topics. I will ruminate on those topics again and keep an eye for new topics to ramble about.

In terms of traffic, 2012 has been my best year. In fact, for a while last year, I was getting a boatload of traffic. Much more than ever before. That soon ended about mid-summer and my traffic metrics have returned to the mean, so to speak. From all the posts, I hope to have communicated some insights and learnings that resonate. You can browse the archive as it is listed in the lower right.

Topics of interest that I expect to ruminate further on  include big data and cloud computing. New topics will be found to ramble on about naturellement. I look forward to learning and posting about them in due course. Until then, I will celebrate the milestone.

Thanks for visiting and leave a comment or two.
