The ingenious wizards at WordPress have shifted things around again. They no longer offer a sampling of blogs using the themes they offer – a pity, imho, as it’s always interesting to see the way a variety of bloggers turn a particular theme into a personal platform for their writing.
The changes mean this little blog is no longer featured as a “great blog using the Manifest Theme.” Overnight the stats shrank like unmentionables doused in a shower of icy water.
There’s a sense of relief that the folk who turn up here nowadays are more likely to be interested in the content of this blog rather than its theme and design. Yet this is mingled with gratitude that the exposure generated by the WP link may have delivered a few web-wanderers – who might otherwise have scooted on by – to these pages.
When all is said and done, all that remains is emptiness. And emptiness is not about to be silenced. So if you are a stalwart subscriber to this blog, fear not. She-who-transcribes-the-downloads isn’t about to clock off because she’s been sidelined by WP. She thrives on anonymity, and it’s a constant source of amazement to her that Life makes sure her offerings land exactly where they are able to be received.
Nothing, nothing is required of her but to offer what’s given.
And she wryly observes that the Changeless remains – well – unchanged.
plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose

I’ll hang in there with you in emptiness. 🙂 Mx
YES!!!! of course i’m still with you!!!!!! Dorothea
ah, so THAT’S why the hits have dropped off recently – I use Manifest (heh, funny that) as well; I’d even started giving up on blogging so much because I thought my time had passed – but, as always, you are so write (sorry!), it is the offering OUT of emptiness that is important and needs to be recognised, not its (and my!) manifestation …
ever-precious ~ You ♡

Hehe, welcome to anonymity, Sister — it has its own kind of comfort, a fount of humility. 😉
Indeed it does dear Bro Bob. I adore anonymity – the joy and freedom of nothing-to-sell!
Perhaps we should call our tribe ‘the invincible invisibles’ …
Chuckles from the hermitage. 🙂
Yes, joy & freedom — that’s it, isn’t it! 😉
