A new milestone: 2,000 published blogs

Yesterday morning, I noticed that I have published 2,000 blogs. My initial ones (in Dutch) were mediocre and reveal a lot of emotional pain. However, that was their purpose.

2017 statistics and 2018 wishes

On 28 April 2014, I started writing my blog. Initially my posts were only in Dutch and rather negative following my 2010-2013 divorce battle and my 2013-2014 burn-out. My number of daily views was low. This number has been increasing ever since I changed to the English language by the end of 2014. Nowadays, most of my readers are located in France - for reasons...

Open letter to my readers

Haarlem, 3 November 2016 Dear readers, By reading my blogs you have learned a lot about me. Yet I know little to nothing about most of you. Last weekend, my page view statistics suddenly dropped to a level I haven't seen in a long time. This even made me wonder whether I should continue writing.

Intelligence vs Wisdom

Since a few days my daily page views are well above 300. I continue to be surprised by the ongoing success of my blog. Yes it's free but quite often things for free are worthless. Nearly 40 thousand page views definitely means that something interesting must be going on in my blogs. I don't consider myself as highly intelligent. Probably just intelligent and/or...
