Word Press blogging is habit forming

carryoncouple.com is a razor-thin part of the Word Press blogosphere of millions of blogs.

Regardless, Sue and I love writing bits and publishing photos from our travels and other post-work experiences. We enjoy hearing from family and friends via blog comments or “likes” during our trips. We also hear from people from all over the globe. It is a lot of fun and satisfies our publishing addiction from our newspaper days.

After two-and-a-half years, we have done about 200 posts and our blog has been viewed more than 11,200 times by people in nearly 100 countries. We have had more than 820 comments.

After a day on the trail, we often pour a glass of wine, look through our photos, and write a short narrative about the day. When we publish a post, we often hear a ping that indicates a “like” or comment has been registered. We love these, but the best part is the “publishing.”

The blogging world is like a humungous bookstore. People browse with no obligation. We are amazed at who finds our blog. We are honored that 190 people are “followers.” Admittedly, some are out to make money on their blogs by expanding their reach, but we are under no obligation either.

Thanks, everyone. And thanks to Word Press for providing a free platform that even we have figured out how to use (with some assists from our patient son Andrew).

  1. What ever you do do’t stop (we read each and every blog, even if we are bit lackadaisical in actively commenting them)

  4. I stumbled upon your blog because I was looking for something on goblins. I was amazed at the pictures of you both in a place I had never known existed. I am definitely going to keep reading about your adventures. Thank you
