Blogging Another Year

I’m amazed to be still at it, and one of the reasons is, it gives me a place to write.

I view it like the gym…I work out here.

My following is minimal since, I’m not a social media girl even of late, dismantling my Facebook page I rarely went to after I was smugly asked, how come you have so few friends?

I realize self-promotion is a big part of capturing an audience, but preening has never been my strong point.

I’m also not a fan of…if you LIKE me, I’ll LIKE you. It means more to me to have a handful of steady readers who tune in, simply because they truly like how I write, rather than a group that probably doesn’t even read half of what they claim they do.

My writing means more than anything else, sustaining me in all ways, so perhaps I’ll just have to be satisfied with that.

I thank those who grace me by their constant attendance. You know who you are.

Also sending my annual acknowledgement to Amy Foster who initiated athingirl, way back in 2011.

1,776 pieces have been posted, another 35 in the warm-up circle.

I choose today to be, to quote my pal David Stewart…

a writa’ no matta what.

About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Thanks.

    Yes, Susannah, you truly are a writer. The start to my day is a strong cup of Café Vienna and Athingirl. Give my hearty thank you to whoever Amy Foster is. I’m so glad I found your site.
