I’M NOT YET PREPARED TO CALL MYSELF THE COMEBACK KID…

..But:

April views were the best I’ve had since June, 2017.

April visitors were the best since January, 2017.

March was nearly as good.

That followed an eight-month slump that seemed to strongly coincide with Google changing its search engine parameters last June/July (many websites across the board have cited similar declines).

I’m still not quite back to the standard I established in the first six months of last year…and, of course, my numbers remain quite small.

But they mean a lot to me and I’m grateful to all who visit, view, read and comment. I’ve been very fortunate in thus far attracting a uniformly high class of people: all debates (including those conducted via email) have been civil; all comments have been pertinent; all suggestions intelligent and, I assure you, duly considered, even if I haven’t been able to enact certain changes (time and my lack of tech-savvy being the two principal culprits).

Six-and-a-half years in, no one whose first thought for a blog name was “No (Unearned) Comfort Here” could ask for more than that.

Here’s to everybody, not forgetting those artists who inspired me in the first place:

    PS: I don’t pay any attention to the numbers on my sites—if I did, I’d probably be on a permanent bummer …

  2. Hey John, Jackie IS thee Bomb….Got to see her perform here in L.A. a couple years ago and she tore it up and of course there were music legends at every table!
    Meanwhile, I’m happy to hear your site is growing…I’m certain your numbers are going to continue to grow exponentially! Well deserved, if only for the coolest name in the “blogosphere “The Round Place In The Middle” Are you kidding? How clever!
    Keep up the great stuff!

    • Thanks Rick. You’ve got a pretty great site yourself. So glad you clued me in to it.

      I think I told this on here once, but it’s been a while…Looking for a way to invoke the center of a 45, my original thought was “The Hole in the Middle”…I liked the punchiness of it….But then I realized people might assume I was referring to myself…And take me for the wrong kind of hole…Hence, the inspiration to search a bit further until I found a touch of poetry.

      It pays to be persistent!
