Okay, now I have 500+ subscribers from wordpress.com and another 70 through email. This is not too bad for 5 months with 40 posts, eh? In fact, this is super-duper fantastic.
If you ask me, I did not have any number in mind when I restarted blogging. In fact, I could still run a blog with no confirmed subscribers; I am pretty sure if not humans, a google crawler would definitely read what I have to say. My aim was to publish information packaged with my opinion out there in the open, if readers subscribe to it, its a bonus.
It’s like a famous poet said “ಹಾಡು ಹಕ್ಕಿಗೆ ಬೇಕೆ ಬಿರುದು ಸನ್ಮಾನ?” (Translation: Does a singing bird ever desire to win an award?)
I sincerely appreciate that you stopped by, read them, liked and chose to subscribe with the commitment to read future posts. It means a lot.
I know these numbers are abysmal in comparison with Bloggers using Youtube or other channels. A good Youtuber already would have achieved a silver plaque by five months. But that does not entice me enough to migrate a video platform. It requires an equal amount of research if not more, but the amount of work involved to publish a video online is manifold. Additionally, I don’t see wordpress.com curb freedom of speech anytime soon. At the same time, Youtube, Twitter and Facebook etc. are big fans of censorship.
Thank you once again.
