Today, I decided to take a look at my blog stats. These are the things I learned:
- Although I though I was rather prolific last year, I have already written more posts than I did last year.
- I have already eclipsed the number of views that I had from last year, though not as many viewers–that’s a positive right.
- I have received more comments than last year–or does this include the one that I made in response to people’s comments–either way, there are still more comments.
I feel pretty positive about all of that. Writing more is good and reaching more people is good. That doesn’t make it Today’s Perfect Moment, but it makes it a pretty good moment.
As for the Perfect Moment….I was discussing one of my male colleagues’ affection for Donald Trump–which he exuberantly explained after I wondered aloud why he was whistling the U.S. Anthem. It was rather surreal.
What happened next was that one of my female colleagues, intrigued by the discussion, came over and wanted to impart her opinion. She is a dual citizen and will be voting in the election. She took the time to explain a bit about the election process. She highlighted things I was completely unaware of. She spoke thoughtfully and articulately and it was nice to see her engage in the topic. What made it perfect was that it was just so unexpected–and seemed so much more interesting than the surreal discussion.
