10,000 Pageviews!

Woohoo! Edge of Night just passed 10,000 pageviews!

This is just one small milestone in a vast pond of larger ones, but it's a pretty important step in the amazingly fun and grueling journey of any blog.

You start out with nothing - zero hits, zero followers, and, if you were a newbie blogger like myself, zero idea of what you're doing. Those first 10,000 pageviews are some of the hardest to get, and achieving that milestone means that you didn't quit within the first couple of months like so many bloggers do. You've outlasted many others who lost inspiration when they realized how much work it takes, and now the fun can really begin!

It's thanks to each and every one of you that my blog has made it this far. Further on in this post you'll have the chance to receive a little thank-you from me, if you'd like. It's a small gesture, but I wanted to do something to show my appreciation.

Before I get into that, however, I thought it'd be fun to share some of my blog and social stats with you!

(Can I just say that the writing in that post makes me cringe? I hope I've improved my voice a bit since then!)

Anyway, movin' on. Like I mentioned before, I wanted to do something for all of you to thank you for stopping by my blog, for commenting, emailing, following. For all of that. It's nothing major, but I would love to create and email each of you a personalized.. ah, it wouldn't be a card per se, but something like an image with a brief message written on it (very similar idea to a card, and so I will be using the term 'card').

If you'd like one of these, go ahead and send me an email through the contact form on the right with the words "I want a card!" After that, I will email it to you as soon as I have it finished. You can do with it what you like - save it, put it on your blog, print it out and flush it down your toilet, toss it, or nothing at all. It's simply a way for me to thank you for your time spent here. :)

Thanks so much, and I hope you continue to visit. I sure love having you. Have a fantastic weekend!

    1. Oh, yes! Cheesecake is the absolute best!

      That is so sweet of you, Seema. You have the very same qualities, and I I love them just as much, if not more, on you. You're right about there being a ton of people out there already giving advice - I think that each person brings something a little different to the topic they're giving advice on, and I've wanted to post a few basic tips on writing and blogging (and actually plan to in the future), but I wouldn't dedicate an entire blog to doing that. Not only are there so many already doing so, but I don't have near the knowhow required for it lol.

      Cheers to you, Seema, and thank you again. Your comment has made my night. :)

  3. Congrats on reaching this milestone!! Seriously, how satisfying is it knowing that people are reading what you have to say? Surreal, right? Good job sticking it out till now, but remember page views aren't everything - they don't signify how amazing something is. It could've been amazing all along x

    1. Oh it's a fantastic feeling - surreal is a great way to describe it! That's exactly right, though; pageviews aren't everything, and they can be surprisingly inaccurate when it comes to the quality of the content. Something with few pageviews might be wonderful and without the recognition it deserves, and something with thousands of views just might be utter crap lol. No, pageviews definitely aren't everything. But it's nice seeing them go up.

      Thank you so much, M, and thanks for being a part of helping my blog grow! :)
