1st Blogoversary for Imagineer-ing!

Yes indeed, it really is!  A whole year/twelve months/365 days/… well you get the idea!  Stats graph When we first launched, we had a phenomenal response, which immediately vanished somewhere.  I guess it was a case of “Wow!  Something new!  Must have a look.” followed by everybody going back to their usual reads.  I know it happens.  What’s more gratifying is that things have slowly turned around.  A few readers every month throughout most of 2012 picked up in the last months of the year.  Then, as you can clearly see from the graph, 2013 arrived and the first two months have, to say the least, been astounding.  There is no doubt about it, I feel as if the blog has truly arrived!  If the rest of the coming year can match up to the last two months, then I’ll be absolutely thrilled.  Of course, if it can actually continue to grow in visitors and readers, then that would be even better.  I now have a sense that writing the posts is more than simply satisfying a personal desire to do so.

With the increase in visitors, and the fact that at least some appear to visit more than once a day, means that Imagineer-ing is becoming more attractive to those looking for another audience.  Requests are now coming in as never before for book reviews and Feature Posts have become more frequent.  Hopefully, we’ll soon see guest bloggers and reviewers appearing.  They will be made very welcome!  Do note, though, that this doesn’t mean I wish to seriously reduce my own contribution to the blog.  Far from it.  What it does mean is that there should be far fewer days when there is nothing new.

I wish I could offer readers the chance to win a free ebook, but of course all my ebooks to date are offered for free anyway.  Please be assured, nonetheless, that your support is always very deeply appreciated.

About Steve

An author since the age of 13 years, writing again dominates my activities. My "Imagineer-ing" blog is my primary site. Also: Beginner knitter since November 2010. Favourite knitting techniques: cable and lace. Beginner cross stitcher. Beginner jewellery maker. With the promotion of self publication and all the other work that has been going on here, Dad decided around 2am this morning (22/11/2013) that it was time to begin his next adventure. He was seen off earlier the previous evening by myself, my brother, my sister in law, and my sister, as well as his wife (our mum), and an enigmatic being known only as A Lorraine. After this time of story telling, laughing, crying, joking and mickey taking, we saw how tired both mum and dad were, and we decided to leave them under the (sometimes) gentle care of The Lorraine. When Dad found the timetable for his travels, he let Mum know gently, which woke her from her drowsing, then, with the same gentleness he showed in this universe, he boarded his favourite mode of transport, the Interdimensional Steam Train, and set off with a smile and a wave. For those of us closest, that smile was a reminder that his pain has ended, and the wave, an indicator that he will pop in to all those that knew him, from time to time. Usually at the most inconvenient and in opportune moments he can. While we are sad that he is no longer here, we are happy he now has no pain, and is experiencing more extraordinary things that his writers mind will be frantically weaving into a new story.
