Something happened last night that I could not have anticipated when I began this blog just over three years ago. Someone, somewhere—I don’t know who or where—registered the 500,000th visit to Manner of Speaking. (And, as a nice bonus, it happened on the birthday of my youngest daughter, Kristen.)
I am thrilled with the amount of positive feedback and good wishes that I have received from people all over the world over the past few years. I am delighted to have been able to contribute, in a small way, to helping people become better speakers and presenters.
My sincere thanks to everyone who has taken the time to stop by, or leave a comment, or share a link with others. Thanks also to everyone who has linked to Manner of Speaking on their own blogs or websites. The support is very much appreciated.
People often ask how much time I spend on the blog. The simple answer is: a lot. However, it doesn’t feel like a lot and it certainly doesn’t feel like work. And that’s a good sign, I suppose, given that I have no intention of stopping.
So once more, thank you very much. And now, back to “work” on the next post …
