I thought I’d share a funny story with you.
At the first of November, I said to myself, I’d like to break the record on my website of 120 reads on February 6, 2011. I kept trying to think of posts that would entice more followers. With the new posts, I ended up increasing several days above 100, but not to over 120.
While I was vacationing in Myrtle Beach, I checked the statistics for my Children’s Liturgy blog. It broke the record with 135 readers on November 26, 2011.
My point is in my mind during November, I visualized over 126 reads. However, I didn’t specify which blog. I just said my blog. So-o-o God answered my prayers and my blog post on Joan’s Children’s Liturgy blog. It soared to over 135 readers on November 26 when the most it had before had been 50.
My Never Give Up blog has increased its readership above 100 for 3 different days during December, but none over 120. I’m still working on it. I’ll rephrase my goal: Before January 31, 2012, I have had one or more days with more than 120 readers.
If you’ve had a funny experience where you set your goals, but they weren’t specific enough, please share them with me.
Thanks for reading. Thanks for sharing your insights with me.
Celebrate your sense of humor.
