Here we are at the end of Just Jot It January 2016. I did a thank you post to Linda on Friday, hoping that I would have time to work on a long-delayed post for Sunday, but my brainpower had to be directed elsewhere.
The fun thing is that January 29 became a record-setting day here at Top of JC’s Mind with 66 likes on that day! My old record had been 59, set on October 13, 2015.
While the thank you post to Linda for Just Jot It January generated the most views, I was happy to have generated views that spread news on behalf of poet- and blogger-friends and a couple of re-blogs. There was a post of links to the recently published poems of Merrill Oliver Douglas on Eunoia Review and one spreading the news about the change in platform for OM. I re-blogged anagram haiku from Mathemagical and a wonderful post explaining the true meaning of jihad from Perfect-The-Days. There were also likes for a post I had written the day before which included the Saint Francis Peace Prayer.
I know that part of the reason for the record-setting day was having had an unusually high number of posts in a short amount of time, while part was having the built-in promotion of Just Jot It January for a couple of the posts.
Setting records is fun, but not as gratifying as the knowledge that people are connecting with one another through Top of JC’s Mind.
Sending out a big THANK YOU to all the visitors who made this record possible and all those who pop in on all the non-record-setting days, too!
This is my final post for Linda’s Just Jot It January 2016. It’s been a blast! http://lindaghill.com/2016/01/31/just-jot-it-january-31st-clumsy/
