A good, simple headline and people’s kindness.

Since my “Come in!” post was the most successful I guess the invitation was the key, because the post was very brief and simple, explaining why I  couldn’t think about a person I know from whom I would keep my blog secret. The third most popular was “Getting to know you” about being a stranger in a stranger land. I used an old song from the musical “The King and I” to express in a happy way how I like to know new places my way. “No one” is the fourth one, about who would I like to write my biography. The headline already answered the question, so I’m surprised so many people took the pain to read the post.

The second place in my rank of hits is “A jail without windows”. I don’t remember about what was the prompt, but I described my experience with depression. The same topic appears in the fifth place “Depression and party not a good company”. In this two posts I guess the amount of hits is due to kindness and understanding from bloggers who know what’s like living with depression or with people depressed. I received supportive messages from totally unknown people, very helpful. I’m so thankful.

I experienced a feeling that I belong to a sort of community of people who help each other some way when necessary with a word of encouragement, a good advice, or a simple “like” I appreciate so much.  And  of course, I experience the help from all of you with your posts about the same topic written from different backgrounds, different cultures, and different points of view, which is a great enrichment I enjoy every day. Thank you.
