I had been blogging for less than six months when I decided to tackle one of my favorite political topics -- drug legalization. A four-part series terminating with drugs -- the summary.
The connection with Mexico was obvious. But I was still living in Oregon. My move south would be almost a year away.
At the time, my blog was picking up about 75 readers a day. Most were probably spam hits. But I was writing for myself. As I still do.
But that series turned out to be my breakthrough. Thanks to the referral of a fellow blogger. Billie of Billieblog.
Billie read the piece and posted a link on her blog with some very kind comments. My readership spiked. And it has grown ever since. Thanks again, Billie.
She has now started a new blog -- Reservations for One. Describing it as: "A journal about the Third Chapter, my life as a widow. Cooking-for-one, Entertaining, Travel, Grief, Family, Friends, Ageing, Photography and Living in San Miguel de Allende, GTO, Mexico."
Head over there. Pull up a chair to her table and enjoy your conversation with Billie. I always do.
As for the family Cotton, we are on an airplane flying south to Manzanillo. Adventures to follow.
