One Million Served: Hoo-Rah! The Blog Had a Good Day
I had planned on talking about something else entirely today, but then I noticed that little stat counter in the lower left of the blog. See those nifty numbers there?
Yep, that's right.
The blog hit one million views this week. (does a happy dance)
I know in the grand scheme of things it's no big deal, but for me it's a milestone, and I feel it's good to celebrate the successes in your life. In four years it's gone from hardly anyone knowing I was here to a decent-sized groups of folks stopping by every day. That's a lot of writers.
Most of these views have occurred over the last two years since the blog's redesign. I had 20,000 views in all of 2009. Not quite 90,000 in 2010. Took off like a rocket in 2011 and growing steady all through 2012. It'll be fun to see what 2013 holds.
So thanks to all of you for making this happen. I appreciate you coming by and coming back, and sharing what you've found here. I've met a lot of great folks (online and in person) because of this blog, and I look forward to the many friends I'll meet in the future.
You guys rock.
