Wow. So Before I hit the road, I'd like to just say, awww, shucks. And thanks. My blog passed 10,000 hits a few days ago, and is suddenly over 10,400 in just a few days! I have over 30 subscribers and am averaging about 60 hits a day from readers all over the world!
75% of my readers stay on the site and click from page to page, and many follow links out off my blog to other sites.
It seems like just a few months ago I was just starting out, with five readers, four of whom were related to me...
This is off of Feed Burner, and the fastest it's ever tallied 25 hits is in 4 hours, last week, and 7 1/2 hours the week before. Thanks so much for helping get the word out and increasing readership!!
Also, yesterday, I got several messages from people who said they have been HIKING because of posts here! I'm so SO psyched. I'm hikin' with y'all!
The journey so far has been fast, crazy, emotional and exciting. I'm so much further along than I expected to be at this point, and I am so grateful to have such an AMAZING community to share this with! Thanks again for reading!
