I haven’t been taking my blogging very seriously. I am sporadic at best and have yet to master all the widgets available to me. I check my personal email every day however I overlooked my Minty mailbox. Since introducing it a few weeks ago, I have had nothing but spam. Last week this blog had a mysterious surge in hits. I accessed Mintylearns@yahoo.co.uk (after having to reset the password) to find an email from the Open University asking if I minded being Blog of the Month.
With only a handful of followers and fewer hits, it has given me quite an ego boost to see the traffic at least double in a matter of days. This is a small success, but is my first outside of assignments and EMA’s. Thank you to The Open University for making me feel like a writer.
