Freudian Slips Blog Anniversary

One year ago, Freudian Slips was born. There isn't a more fitting birthday for Freudian Slips than Halloween. How many blogs have a born on date in the witching hour? Heart of hearts, I didn't know what Freudian Slips would be in the beginning. To my utmost satisfaction it has evolved into three weekly posts in a short story format with a take thee to a punnery approach.
This blog has registered 9000 visitors in its virgin year and attracted a small audience who visit regularly. Nine thousand hits is not to be confused with a hit parade or a traffic jam in front of an anonymous rowhouse but what a fruitful year for me as a writer. I attract 10-20 first time visitors per day and pen approximately 5000 words a month. I haven't experienced famine or fishing for stories yet and writing is becoming less of an exercise. Thankfully, I haven't bottomed out on puns, quips, or play on words. Many thanks to my regular readers who bared with me until I found my inner voice fitting for public consumption.
My writing has allowed me to come into contact with interesting people from as far away as Italy, South Africa, and Argentina to as close as my own backyard. There is no greater compliment than hearing the words "I read your blog last night." or receiving a nice email. Recently, a stranger on the tennis courts brought up my blog in conversation. Only last week an acquaintance got out of his parked car to stand in the pouring rain to passionately approve of a recent blog posting. The fact that I am hearing the name Freudian Slips more often tells me that it may not be slips of the tongue but that I may be on the write track as a budding author.
Special thanks to big blog brother Pax Romano, who encouraged me to start my own blog. I got one year under my belt and I hope that's not all. A fitting postscript, I felt compelled to end this blog anniversary of sorts with a Freudian slip no less.
