What some of you non-blog writers might not know, is that WordPress provides stats on the number of blog views and referring sites or search terms – how people find our blog or a specific post.
After my post about New Year’s Eve yesterday, I noticed a few search terms that led to/referred my blog. They were:
“I hate New Year”
“going out on nye with all couples and being single”
“‘new year’s eve’ ‘three couples’ ‘lonely'”
“single and alone on NY”
Then it hit me like a ton of bricks. I am NOT the only single person struggling with being alone/lonely on New Year’s Eve. (Duh).
I may not have a lot of single friends, and especially not ones that struggle emotionally with being single the way that I do. But, it doesn’t mean that there aren’t thousands of millions of strangers out there who know exactly what I’m feeling. And some of them are you, readers.
So you know what? When the clock strikes midnight, I will be thinking about all of you out there; our ‘single society’ of people who are not really alone – because we’re all together in that too.
So, thanks for coming along on this journey with me and for reading. Happy New Year…..here’s to YOU 🙂
