Blog Introspection Challenge
5.) Which post got the most views?
When it comes to blog stats, I prefer to read between the lines a bit. Some posts get a lot of views because other people were kind enough to link or reblog them, thus bringing in a lot of new readers.
other times, things that are said in the comment section (drama) bring people in apart from the post itself.
I’m choosing to interpret this question as the post that received the most views in one day. so in that regard, it would be “Release”, with 696 views. In this post I was celebrating my first year of blogging by sharing a poem I wrote about Richard for the occasion. It was a little bit personal and a whole lot scary to share that poem. not only because it was in poetry form, which was a detour from my regular joking manner, but also because I was admitting personal feelings about Richard.
I had shared personal feelings before but this time was a little different. I used to write poetry a lot during my teenage years and into my early 20’s. I saw it as a fun challenge to find the words I wanted to use, making them rhyme while still conveying the meaning I was looking for, and keeping true to the tone I had set.
it was a helpful way to work through thoughts and feelings that I felt were either too trite to admit to or too difficult to make coherent. I still enjoy playing with words but I don’t write them down in poetry form as much anymore. so doing so this time, made me feel very vulnerable.
The response I received was overwhelming, in a very gratifying way, and so now the poem has become doubly special to me.
The symphonies he frees in me
will always find a dance
