checked my “broken links” report.

It’s a report generated automatically by my WordPress web site. It notifies me of any links on my site that no longer work.

Every month there are about 20 of them on the list.

Nearly all are links to the web sites of people who have previously commented on my blog and whose sites are no longer active (i.e., the links are broken).

In most cases, it’s solos or small firms that are out of business.

There’s no shame in that. It’s not easy making it all work.

But if you’re still at it, even if things are not exactly as you’d like, you are already “successful.”

It doesn’t hurt to remember that every once in a while.
