Thank You for YOUR Support!

It’s 7:30 in the morning on December 27th as I type this. I can’t quite believe it but thanks to your continued support I just reached a new milestone on this blog. 10K views. 😍 I’m up 3K views compared to last year, which is pretty incredible. “Someone up there really likes me!”

I’d seen that I was getting close, but I didn’t think I was going to hit it before the end of the year. I know “the numbers” aren’t why we do this, but it was still really satisfying to reach it.

Thank you for visiting this blog, for reading and commenting, for liking what I’m doing here. It means so much to me. I truly appreciate it.

I made a short Thank You video on my YouTube channel. This goes out to everyone!

  1. Incredible that you catched that milestone in real-time! How long did you hog the statistics? πŸ˜€
    Congratulations to this feat! Now look at the numbers from Germany. Those hits are all from me πŸ˜‰

    • I took the first picture 10 minutes before the second picture. It was great seeing it pass that milestone “in real time”. I don’t know why but I had a big jump in views yesterday (Dec. 27th). πŸ˜€ Btw, my brother lives in Germany so you can’t take *all* the credit. πŸ˜‰

  2. Nicely done. I know what you mean about numbers not being why we do this, and I agree, but it is nice to know there are folks out there who enjoy what we do. And I certainly enjoy what you do, so keep at it!

  3. Congrats on these numbers! It really isn’t about the numbers, but what I would say is that they snowball; ie it’s easier to get from 10 thousand to 20 thousand than it is to get from 5 thousand to 10 thousand. But having written for 3 million readers a day at newspapers, I can assure you that you’ll never get as many positive comments anywhere else as you do from the WP community, it’s the most user-friendly way to get ideas out there. So enjoy the ride, it’s downhill all the way (if you’re skiing!) Obviiously, your brilliant content and turn of phrase help…

    • Aw, shucks. Now you’re making me blush. Thanks mate. πŸ™That’s a great point about the comments. In my few months on YouTube I’ve had more catty comments than in six years on WordPress. We are lucky to be part of such a welcoming and positive community. πŸ™‚
