7,000,000 Views & Counting…
Today we’re sitting in New York City, the Big Apple, The City That Never Sleeps. I have Frank Sinatra playing in my head and the crazy hum of the big city buzzing all around me. It’s a place I never, in my wildest dreams, imagined we’d take “the beast” and yet here we are. It just goes to show that life is unpredictable, but can also be the most amazing adventure as long as you allow yourself to go where it takes you.
We passed another wild milestone on our way here. Well, technically we passed the milestone a little while ago, but somehow I managed to miss it. The views on the blog roared past 7,000,000 and it just so happened in our 7th year on the road. I hadn’t planned on writing about it either, but that 7/7 combo was just too irresistible to ignore. The only thing that could have made it better was if it had happened in the 7th month of the year, but then again I might have fainted and stopped blogging altogether had that been the case. Those of you who are slightly OCD in nature will understand the immense sense of calm and completion that kind of symmetry presents.
So, here we are. Another place I never imagined in my wildest dreams I would get to. When I started my little blog back in early 2010 and got my first 5 clicks (4 of which were from my parents, no doubt) I certainly never expected to end up here. And when I hit 1,000,000 in 2013 I certainly never expected it to accelerate as it did from there. It’s thanks to you, my faithful readers and followers that I’ve gotten to this point and I can only send my deepest thanks and love to all you that have supported us through this journey thus far. Your readership and interaction continues to motivate me to put out my best work, and that in itself is a deep and beautiful thing.
So thank you all my dear blog friends, from the bottom of my heart! Hopefully we can continue to inspire and entertain, and perhaps even lead you on your own journey somewhere down the road. After all, you never know where life will take you if you allow it to lead the way…
