Thanks to my friends, family and an army of dedicated spambots, my little slice of the internet has now received 10,000 pageviews.
Never mind that it's only taken me three years to accomplish this, never mind that many sites see that sort of traffic before people have poured their morning coffee, never mind that spambots seriously account for more than half of those views - mostly, I'm just happy that I've somewhat routinely updated a site for this long. I'll probably keep doing it, mostly because I'm really, really good at writing words down and hoping that people like them.
Here's some party hats, guys! When I first started blogging, I didn't have a clue that in three years, I would be having a baby and going back to school. I don't really re-read what I write, so maybe one day it will be fun to go back and see how that transition played out in my writing. (I suspect that I just like the IDEA of being able to go back and read about my life.)
Hopefully in three more years, I'll be a nurse, and have another kid (or two).
I guess I'll just have to wait and see how it turns out.
