When I first started my blog (a whole 38 days ago), I hired the genius behind one of my very favorite daily reads for a 90 minute consultation on all things blog. Victoria McGinley of Vmac&Cheese was kind enough to share her time, thoughts, experience and wisdom with me. She was insightful and helpful, but also straight up honest, which I totally appreciate. I look up to her, which is a little funny because she’s, ahem, much younger.
One of the things that Victoria told me, and that I fixated on because I love a good goal, was that you’re not really legit (I’m paraphrasing here) until you have at least 10,000 page views. I have checked my site stats every day since then, yes I’m that obsessive, and today friends, I reached 10,059 page views!
So, many, many thanks to all of you who have read, followed or even just once put your eyeballs on this blog – I appreciate it. I’m thrilled to be legit and thrilled that this happened on a Friday afternoon, because luckily, I had some champagne chilling – just in case.
