A Blogger for a Hundred Days

A hundred days ago, I would not have believed that I would last this long, nor that I would now have two public blogs.

My other blog, 30daysinistanbul.wordpress.com, is as the name suggests, about my latest trip which is on going.  It’s a travel diary cum photo journal and is proving more popular than my everyday site of poetry and gardening.  I’ve kept it separate as I believed that it would appeal to a different readership and I guess I’m right.  It has attracted over a thousand views in three weeks whereas this blog has more than twice that number, but in five times as many days.

Blogging has had a profound effect on my life.  It looks like an exaggeration when I put it on paper, but it’s true.

It has given me a readership that I never had.  It has opened my eyes to other bloggers’ worlds.  It led me to rediscover my own language – is that not profound?

I treasure the opportunity to share my experience with the world.  In a way it’s like putting out food for birds and see who comes and feed.  As everyone knows, the result is most rewarding.

      You are too kind! Translating your poems to Chinese has reconnected me to my own language after so many years. I feel fortunate to have found your blog and through you, Jeff Schwaner’s as well.
