MY 100th BLOG! SHOULD I CALL DR. KEVORKIAN? / by Bo Gerard

It’s had a good life.  It’s done its work – adding content to my site to improve SEO, giving me another creative outlet, sharpening my Photoshop skills.  But is it time to put the old warhorse down?

At first, these blogs were more of a chore, but they have become a fun weekly project, and one that I hope a few of you out there have enjoyed.  When you’re writing a blog, it’s sort of like being a radio DJ.  You are up early, alone at your desk, pouring your heart out, hoping someone out there is listening.  I wanted my blogs to be somewhat interesting, informative, and hopefully entertaining.  (Hell, I MYSELFwant to be somewhat interesting, informative and hopefully entertaining)

Even with the analytical tools I have at my disposal, it is hard to know just how many readers these blogs are getting.  Facebook “likes” are not a reliable metric, as I have found that many more people are reading the posts, than are “liking” or “commenting” on them.  And believe me, I get it.  Everything you “like” gets broadcast to everyone on your friends list, and many of us are judicious with our “likes”.

But for my blog’s 100th birthday, I am going to make a wish, as I blow out the candles.  If you have enjoyed one or more of the blogs over the past two years, just this once, go ahead and click “Like”.  It would be a great encouragement, and might help me decide whether or not to “pull the plug”.
