I read once that bloggers usually don’t go wrong if they blog about their, uh, blogs.
That’s what I am about to do.
The first month of the new year is about to go into the books and I am happy — and proud — to say that I am on pace for a record year for page views and unique visitors.
High Plains Blogger set the record in 2017 for both categories. The new year is off to a rip-roarin’ start.
I am grateful beyond measure for that.
How do I plan to keep the momentum moving forward? I’ll do more of the same thing I did in 2017.
I’ll acknowledge the obvious. I had help from the man who took office as president of the United States one year and 11 days ago. Donald John Trump Sr. has kept me in the chips with grist about which I could comment.
So, with that I extend a word of thanks to the president. Thank you, Mr. President, for the service you’ve provided to High Plains Blogger.
There have been other factors, too. Amarillo business and civic leaders have helped move this city forward. I’ve enjoyed following the events relating to downtown revival and have been an avid supporter of the efforts to breathe new life into what had been a moribund city center.
So, we’ll proceed apace with commentary on politics, policy and life experience. Let’s keep enjoying the ride together.
