It’s not the Huffington Post but I’m still amazed that there have been 5000 hits to this blog since it kicked off in May 2008.  I remember how giddy I was when I got my first comment and again when there were 2000 hits on the 20th of October.  Read an article by Brian Stelter in the education supplement of the New York Times this past Sunday.  It was about how journalism schools are working to adapt to the new media.  The author was saying how blogs are now a necessary part of journalism and how it is important to “invent your own jobs.”  This has been a great experiment for me and I’m pleased that I have found a small audience that has given me a vehicle for my voice and another venue for storytelling.  It’s very gratifying to watch the blog stats and see my viewers going up every month.  Thanks to all for reading my blog.  Stay tuned for more.

  1. Vicky – I hired someone in India to repeatedly hit your blog so you would not be too disappointed. It’s too bad you can’t get paid for blogging. Let me know if you figure out how you can make money that way.
