One year ago today I wrote my first blog via WordPress, entitled Nancy Drew Unplugged. I had nothing but a few coins in my pocket and one big dream — to dominate the Blogiverse.
Thanks to my legions of fans, a.k.a. my blog followers and commenters, I’m closer to achieving that dream.
How close? I started off with about 20 followers, and 140 posts and one year later, I have over 100 if you don’t count Twitter followers, which I don’t, because technically they’re my Tweeple, not my Bloggies, and counting them artificially inflates my numbers.
I rarely look at blog stats, but apparently people have visited me over 10,000 times this year. It’s awe-inspiring. I realize there are bloggers out there who would consider these stats pitiful by comparison, but Rome wasn’t built in a day. My time will come.
So I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who took time out of their day to come visit me this year — it means a lot. I never thought a person could make friends via blogging, but it’s totally possible, and I’m grateful for the friendships I’ve made.
My eyes are tearing up, so I’ll stop there. Here’s a slice of virtual cake for you, I hope you enjoy it. Have a wonderful weekend, I love you all <sob>
