As I mentioned back in April, I had several ideas for new posts but didn't have the time to finish them off. Now it's close to the end of June and I've posted three items in the past week. I'm catching up.
I am also approaching the 3rd year anniversary of this blog. That date, along with my recent stops and starts, prompted me to ask, "Where am I going with this blog, and what do I want to accomplish?"
I occasionally use blog tracking software, so I know I get between 200 and 400 visits per month, averaging about 1.5 pages per visit. That's a minuscule amount by popular blog scales, but test engineering is hardly a hot button topic. People comment rarely, although I have had a few acquaintances tell me they read my blog and enjoyed it.
I don't get paid for this, it's not a supplement for my job, and I'm not trying to score points with people online. Why do I do it? Because a part of me always wanted to write - in college I briefly debated trying to become a novelist. What do I want to accomplish? To entertain and educate, in relatively equal proportions.
Okay, that's enough touchy-feely soul-searching for one day. I hope everyone had a good weekend.
