On the 17th of January 2012, I started to write articles on Street Articles. Why? to improve my English and to teach myself to write shorter articles mainly needed for the computer program. (Help files and manuals).. Did I enjoy it.? Yes, and after penning 103 articles I became the top author on the site..
Well guess what, I wrote my last article in November last year and although I’ve dropped off the top 30 ranking I still receive reads… the total as at today being.. 98 255.. can you believe it… but I only received 1618 comments on my articles…
Now as for blogging.. I started on the 12 of February 2012, which WP reminded me by sending me a chocolate cake…(I wish) and I’ve just noticed I have just past the 30 000 views… but what strikes me the most is the comments…9 814 on wordpress. Now I’m thinking, if I tallied up all the words I’ve received, and those I’ve written… maybe I could have written a further 218 articles and still been number 1 author… No, then I wouldn’t have met all of you, and that has been far more fun than trying to be intelligent and writing articles of substance…
But wow I never started this for views, but for fun, so I must thank all of you for popping in to view my photos and reading what I try to share…
YAYYYYY! We win!!!!!!!! xoxo
Yayyyyy I’m glad you’re happy..
I have never heard of Street Articles. I may check into it myself. As for your blog, I am so happy I was introduced to it so am very glad to hear you are continuing. 🙂
Yes SA became hard work when I took up position 1.. so many articles needing penning etc.. but here I find there is no pressure… but if you love to write that is definitely a place to be..
This is wonderful, Bulldog!!!
So many more reads but far less comments… I like the comments so I’m staying here..
I’m glad I found your blog, Bulldog, and I hope you’ll never stop sharing your photo’s and writing. Congrats 🙂
No WP won’t be seeing the end of me… far more fun here… will just add an article to the other site every now and then…
It can be a problem, sometimes, deciding where to concentrate one’s writing. Solve it by stopping? Ha ha ha, not Pygmalion likely!
I have reduced my writing on the other site … far to serious.. this here is much more fun…. thanks for the visit…
Thanks.. staying here though.. much more fun..
You have so many feathers in your cap – what an inspiration you are, Bulldog 😀
Thank you… such praise from an accomplished author…
I very selfishly think you made a great choice to continue blogging!
Thanks Russ.. so kind of you..

Wow!! You sure are a busy and popular guy aren’t you? Congrats on all of your successes and please don’t stop!! 🙂
No I’ve stopped the writing more fun here.. people talk to me…
That’s because you’re so much fun :).
You wouldn’t dare spend all of your time writing intelligent articles…we wouldn’t stand for it! Congratulations on you many views and comment total…WOW! ( and that was just you and me talking back and forth)…
Now why do think I was worried that you were going to stop… I’d have no comments… and that 10 000 comment count is not far off… now if you weren’t there how would I ever make it,…??
lol…..I’ll do my best to help you get there!
That’s great about all your articles and all the people who have read them! I think it’s important for writers to have a presence in several arenas as it were, so the blog is important too. I was worried when I was reading your post that you were going to say you were giving up the blog!
No, rather the writing, I’m having far too much fun here…
You are fun and educational blogger with great photographs.
Thank you Alex… but I did enjoy the writing for a while…
