13,000 page hits! Now that is something worth celebrating, if you ask me. Guys, I just have to tell you, getting Blog of Note is really amazing. I am flabbergasted at how much traffic I've gotten on my blog, and how many wonderful comments I've received. On Wednesday, my blog had only nine followers. As of now, well...let's just say it's got way more than nine.
In March, I posted an entry commemorating the day that I finally pushed over the 3,000-visitors-mark. Today, I have over 13,000 page hits. That's ten THOUSAND in less than two days. I'm amazed, and very humbled. I've been blogging for a little over three years, and I've never seen as much traffic as I have since May 11th.
Since I started blogging back in 2008, I've always loved reading comments, getting feedback, having people tell me that something I wrote made them smile, or made them think. And since I found out what Blogger's Blog of Note was, I've been hoping I'd end up on it. Now I have! Needless to say, I'm bursting with pride. It sounds cheesy, but it's kind of been a dream of mine to end up on that list. It feels great, I gotta say.
I wanted to take the opportunity to encourage anyone out there blogging and feeling like they're not getting noticed to just keep at it! Take it from someone who's been doing this for quite some time. It's worth the effort. Don't despair, don't feel like you should quit just because you're not getting loads of comments or legions of followers. If you enjoy it, keep it up. It will pay off in the end. :-)
Thank you all so much for dropping by, commenting, and following. It really means a lot to me!
Here's to 13,000 more page hits. :-)
