Just wanted to take a time-out from my normal posts to note that we just passed a MILLION page-views to the blog! Wooo-hooo!!
I know, a pittance compared to some sites, and many hits are no doubt spam or quick searches with no real interest in the site. But even so, a million page views is pretty amazing to me. Not bad for four years!
In the beginning, of course, I had very few visitors. Slowly I built readership up to around 20,000 per month. Then, two years ago, things really expanded. Now I average around 1500 page views per day, and between 45,000 to 50,000 per month. Unbelievable. And I rarely even promote the site on other blogs or in social media! The power of the internet, I guess.
I've taken a little break recently from pregnancy-related stuff, focusing more on some parenting-related issues and fun stuff. However, don't worry, I have many pregnancy-related items and weight-related things in the works, plus a return to the PCOS series soon. These are the things closest to my heart, but they do take a lot of research and time to complete, so I fit in some easier stuff now and then. Plus, sometimes I just like to vary my focus anyhow! Keeps things fresh.
But now's your chance to give a little feedback to the blog. What do you like best, and what do you hope to see more of? In your opinion, what's the most important stuff to cover? I can't promise I'll change my posting habits too much, but it is helpful to hear what folks need/want most. Helps me prioritize my time.
Thank you, readers, for all your pageviews, recommendations, links to the blog and links my other website, www.plus-size-pregnancy.org. I appreciate you all. I don't get to reply to all my emails anymore (one of the downsides of a well-read blog is having too many emails to answer each one personally), but I absolutely read every single email. I try to fit in what I can, but as a working mom with four children, I can't always get to every one. My apologies.
Still, I hope the blog has been useful to you. It's certainly been a pleasure and an honor for me to write this blog and interact with my readers.
Thanks a MILLION, y'all! See you after the next million!
