I don’t mean this in a negative kind of way, but as a blog writer (for now over 2 years), I tend to at times wonder if my efforts of writing are making the kind of impact I always intended the site to have. I will ask myself, “Are people really reading this,” or, “Am I really helping people?”
If you really think about it, blogging is kind of a silly and
scary thing all at the same time. As a blogger, you write and press a publish button. It seems simple, but pressing it means it is sent to an immense and vast internet for an immeasurable time where it can be shared, liked, sent and saved. So I take it back. Blogging is kind of scary!
As bloggers, we can check our stats page to see how many people clicked on the article and site, but the question of, “Are they really reading,” still always remains questionable.
As a blogger, I was very grateful to be notified by the Missouri Arts Council that dancehealthier was included in their February main article on their webpage. The article is written by, Barbara MacRobie, and it is titled, Snapshots of the Missouri Arts Blogosphere. Dancehealthier is in the “By Obsessed People” section ;-) under the subhead of “More, and Elsewhere.”

Thank you Barbara and to the Missouri Arts Council for reading and including me in your article. It makes hitting that publish button all that more worth it.
