What is my “blogging” dream?  A thousand followers?  A thousand hits a day?  How about four posts per week, or is it four posts a day that I seek?

When I first stepped into this cyber pool, just know ten seemed so cool.

I seek influence, friendship, knowledge, and inspiration.  I seek making a difference in somebody’s life by improving their hopes for the future – their earthly future and their eternal future. I seek ideas, creativity, learning, and teaching.  I seek traveling to places I’ve never known.  I even seek “parenting” skills although my grandkids are grown.

All that leads up to my illusionary dream.  I want to know you. Play Hansel and Gretel with me.  Leave me some bread crumbs and I’ll follow you home.  I’ll look for crumbs in my comments or “likes.”

That, my blogging friend, is my illusionary dream!  😀

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    I love the ‘crumbs’ of real life you leave. The joy of the blogging world for me is that I have not concern about who follows my blog but I enjoy the following of the folks who inspire and feed by life.
