2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 17,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

To everyone who’s read, liked and commented on Randoms by a Random, I just want to say. Thank you very much. Not trying to sound cheesy here (okay, maybe a little bit), but I couldn’t have done it without you guys. And wordpress suggested I send a Thank you note to my top commenters: Priceless Joy, Prakash Hegade, JoyRoses, Noirfifre and Nimmi. Thank you.

Behind every successful blog are amazing readers… ❤

I began to realize how important it is to be an enthusiast in life… If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all, become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good, hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be.
– Roald Dahl

We all know the saying “slow and steady wins the race” but when it comes to something we are passionate about, slow and steady doesn’t cut it. You just go headstrong and give it your all; you don’t hope for the best or for a miracle to occur, you sweat and work towards it. Being an enthusiast is a great gift, because it means, you do not settle for “okay” or “basic”; it means you don’t sit around and expect but you go all out, every single time.

There are a number of successful blogs I have come across and one thing that stands out is despite their booming readership and huge following, they still take the time to read other small blogs and even drop one or two comments. They don’t do it because they have to, but because they love to do it. They are passionate about reading and blogging and this In turn does a lot in endearing them towards us, hence indirectly, further increasing their success. The more you give, the more you get.

You are a writer, so embrace it, hug it, love it. It is your passion and if you want to scream so at the top of your lungs, then by all means do it. It’s your passion and nobody has the right to tell you to tame it.
