Hello hello hello, all you rock ‘n’ rollers everywhere! A new month of blogging has begun. What adventures in blogging will we share this December 2017? It’s 6:50 a.m. and I’ve been at my workstation for a good hour. I’ve put up a Naked News double feature and a Mr Skin flash video already and now I’m working on this blog post.
I’ve been a busy little bee.
But my work day isn’t over yet. I have to do some things behind the scenes. I have to do my deep breathing, flexibility and stretching exercises before I leave my apartment, a part of my routine to get ready for karaoke Sunday night at Sonny’s Tavern and I have to find a way to get into my email. Every time I click on my email icon I get a time-out message before the page opens. That’s not a good sign. How am I going to stay in touch with Amy Aimee? How am I going to stay in touch with Jean Michelle?
And I have to pay bills and balance my check book before I stroll into Little Italy for a few beers and some socialization at Armand’s and then on the way back at Sonny’s.
And I want to checkout the online news outlets that I follow so I can keep us with what’s going on in the world. Even though very little of what I read online gets into the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette, what I read does impact what I publish in this blog. I want to stay informed about the world we live in.
Oh, here are the stats for The Gazette for November 2017.
Views Per Visitor: 3.68
Post Published: 38
I had a daily page view average of 844 for November 2017, still way short of my goal of at least 1,000 page views every day. I’m beginning to feel that 1,000 page views every day is beyond what I can expect to achieve for my little diary/magazine. After all, the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is a one person operation. And I’m not a national or an Internet celebrity. I’m not even a local celebrity. Well, 1,000 page views every day gives me a goal. It’s an ideal. And an ideal is meant to keep you motivated.
Hail to Pitt!

“I will publish blog post #2,500 some time this month. This version of the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette will be four years old in February. I feel that I’m finally getting my sea legs under me as a full-time professional blogger. It’s a good feeling for this retired baby boomer.”—Guy Hogan
