Day 2905: Views

The views expressed in this blog belong to me and do not necessarily represent the views of others.

People express their views in many different ways and through many different media.

These days especially, I wonder how open people are to views different from their own.

In this world, the views of some are considered more valuable than the views of others.

It takes work to express your views effectively.

When expressing your views to others, try using “I”-statements rather than “You”-statements. For example, “I feel strongly about this” rather than “You are wrong” or “You’re an idiot.”

I’ve noticed that people tend to express negative views more often than positive views. In my view, it helps to express appreciation and gratitude.

Four years ago, I decided it was necessary for my mental health to move to a place with ocean views.

Yesterday, the views expressed in this blog got 196 views, with 1.76 views per visitor. At this writing, this daily blog has received 436,222 views since I started it almost eight years ago. “The best views ever,” according to my WordPress stats, happened on June 21, 2020 and the most views for a month were 8,700 during November 2015. I don’t usually view my blogging statistics, so these views are a surprise to me.

Ready to view my views from yesterday ?

The views expressed by the Daily Bitch are her own (but may be shared by others).

Here are Earth Views: Earth from Space Seen from the ISS which started streaming on September 1, 2019, described as “a series of unique and beautiful recorded views of planet Earth captured from 240 miles above it. We look down on our planet along with the astronauts aboard the ISS.

Feel free to express your views in a comment, below.

It’s time to view my gratitude for all who help me express the views in this daily blog, including YOU.

    I love your ocean views, I’m glad you were able to find your home by the ocean. I like your colorful menorah- may each flame grant you peace health and hopes realized.

  4. The candles look so happy on that orange plate.
    I have enjoyed your water views too, these past few years, Ann. These days,I miss your parking attendant a little bit too, though.

  5. In my view the Santa Speedo Run is a wonderful event and I’m glad it went on this year with some precautions taken for the current circumstances.

  6. each person has their own view, as we each see the world through our own lens. that being said, it never hurts to ask a person about what they see through their lens. i’m glad you found your ocean view and i moved to somewhere near my woods and river view.

  7. You took a lot of photos yesterday, Ann. I think the views that are your own were nicely shared! 🙂 Isn’t it fun to have a blog and to know that it’s your platform to say and share anything meaningful to you, without a need to first take a vote!

  8. I like the many Views of the wispy clouds with oceans and other protagonists including Harley.
