Back in February, when I started writing this blog, Technorati said they were tracking 50 million blogs.
By April, the number had grown to 70 million.
There are now approximately 87 million blogs in the world. That's just today.
According to Technorati, my blog ranks 789,000th. Mom! Guess what? I came in 789,000th.
Fifty million, seventy million, eighty-seven million. Incredible numbers that give rise to incredible fortunes. For example, Facebook is a relatively new online social networking site which has just been valued at $6 billion (with a B). That's the same money neighborhood that Rupert Murdoch just paid for the Wall Street Journal.
Confession: I barely understand how to turn my computer on/off. Nor do I care. Were it not for my technical advisers (my son and my son-in-law), this blog would exist only in my heart.
I write because I enjoy writing. Just like I enjoy reading. Moreover, I encourage everyone, especially geezers, to give blogging a go. This is a very satisfying past-time. Keeps the mind active and the butt planted.
And I thank you for reading this blog. Tell your friends about it. My new goal is to snatch the 788,999th position.
