A Milestone

I had no idea I was close to any sort of milestone with the blog, and then I got my little weekly e-mail from Site Meter. As of today, I have had 1000 visits to the blog! Frankly, I'm shocked! And I know, some of you guys have had way more than that, but that's not bad for a new guy!

When I started this, I had no clue that anyone would ever find it and read it. Except for Sara, who promised she would! Thanks, Sara!! But other than that, I figured it would just be for me.

And I still write for my own enjoyment. But I also love the fact that I've gotten to know some of you who read and comment regularly by going and reading your blogs. I have fun sharing bits of my life with you. And I really enjoy reading bits of your life.

I've still got a lot to learn about the blog world. And a lot to learn about exploring my own 'voice' as an blogger/writer. And I'm looking forward to it!

Thanks for making it interesting and fun!

Wow! 1,000 visits? What did you give to the 1,000th visitor? A dry cleaning coupon? Free Dairy Queen for a week? A free mention in your blog?

I have never tracked my stats. Like you, I do it primarily for my own enjoyment and entertainment. Too many people seem to get so wrapped up in the numbers game that they lose sight of why they are here in the first place.

But occasionally one of those stats will jump up and slap you in the face, demanding attention. You have done well, my friend. Keep up the good work and before long, 10K will slap you in the face.

Best of everything in the New Year to you and yours!

Thanks for stopping by Em. Happy New Year. Your wife has done how many Sudoku puzzles? My goodness. She is as into that as the kids are into the gaming.

Sara said...

Congrats on your 1000 visits! And you're very welcome! I promise to continue reading your blog for as long as you'll be blogging.

Happy New Year!

Yeah I haven't even hit 1000 yet. So yeah, congrats to that. But I started off just like. With one person reading my blog and getting one maybe two comments.

It does feel nice to know that people take the time to not only read, but also to leave a lil some-some.
