My stats show that this blog just reached 1,403,370 views.
I remember the day my traffic spiked. It was July 31, 2010. I had been blogging for almost five months, when I wrote this post.
I wasn't yet on Facebook or twitter, nor was I stumbling or pinning, but the good and generous friends I had made in those few months since I went online shared my post. This post won BlogHer Keynote Voice of The Year and I had the unimaginable opportunity to read it aloud at my first BlogHer Conference, which was in San Diego that year.
People tell me that I'm generous with sharing their work, tweeting it, posting it, putting it on Facebook. I'm generous, because I learned it from you.
Thank you all, for what you did for me four years ago.
You pretty much changed my life.
I won't ever forget that.
