And since for a few days nothing seemed to happen, I started dismissing it. Though I was secretly kind of nervous.
But then, on Saturday morning, I woke up to find I had three hundred hits. Three hundred. My typical number per day is about two.
Naturally, I rushed over to Freshly Pressed, and sure enough, there at the top of the page was my post! It was like, super wow!
That Saturday, I got 885 hits. In June, for the entire month, I got 775.
Off the back of this one Freshly Pressed article, I got 100 comments, 72 new followers, countless likes, and met some new fellow bloggers that I would likely never have come across otherwise.
So I have two simple, enormous thanks to give.
- Thank you to WordPress for featuring my article. I was honored by your faith in my writing, and the consideration that other people would enjoy it.
- Thank you even more to every single person who stopped by, read, liked, commented and followed me. I am simply blown away by the support, the kindness, the thoughtful comments, and most of all the sheer number of you that have enjoyed what I had to say. Thank you, thank you so much!
And that’s really all I have to say this week. You are incredible – every single one of you!
