Update and yearly goal

Hello, it's been a while since I've made a post like this. I want to begin by saying I am extremely sorry for taking such a long break from caption writing. Life has a way of becoming complicated, busy, and time-consuming, and for the last year, I've only written sparingly. For most of you, it means nothing because I keep my weekly posts going, but behind the scenes, I've been using my reserves up a lot. I have 320 captions completed, some posted, some not. This doesn't include the "adult" themed captions or the "30 days -" challenge.


Good news: I plan on consistently making these captions, setting aside an hour a week for new captions. This could allow me to continue writing while also replenishing my reserve. I can complete roughly four captions an hour and look forward to writing more. (I just finished a batch of four before this post). I wanted to apologize for the posts.


For the future, expect similar content as usual, with better writing. If I write more consistently, my writing will flow better and improve. Additionally, I am planning on two things this year:


1. Expect 30 Days of Halloween Captions in October. These are a work in progress, but I hope to revive this series. If Halloween does well, I may finish the scrapped "30 Days of Christmas" from last year. These provide a different take on the usual captions I create, so I enjoy making them, but I also want to ensure you all like them.


2. I've been on Blogger for almost four years, starting in 2020. I want to reach 1 million blog views before 2024. It would mean a lot if I could get there because I never fathomed doing so much for this community and becoming a more recognizable face. As someone active since 2017, it does mean a lot to have your support, and I want to keep making content that you all enjoy and that I enjoy making.

So, thank you for all the support and feedback you've given me. I appreciate each and every one of you. ~Robin Howell
