Celebrating Three Years

Three years ago today this blog was born. I've been writing in this space for three years. Usually I'm not one for numbers, but let's look at the stats. This is my 510th post. I have 4987 comments. I have 13 followers and this blog has been viewed 212,102 times as of this writing.

Wow! Here are my most popular posts...

What does this mean? I don't know but I like looking at these stats. I wonder why Permission is the post that is viewed the most. These numbers create more questions for me than answers. I find it interesting to see where people go on this site. 

I'm proud of my blog. I'm grateful for readers. These numbers mean that I am showing up and telling my story and you show up to read it.

I celebrate these three years. Here's something about me: I love big ideas and I am great at starting new projects, but I'm not always successful at the follow through and the implementation of these ideas. I look at these three years as growth. I've followed through and I'm still here. Blogging has given me confidence. Blogging has opened up my world. Writing is how I enter the world. 

Thank you to Ruth Ayres for providing this space to share our celebrations. Please join us and share your own!

  3. Happy Blogiversary, Michelle! So exciting to see your success in the blogosphere!!!

  4. So fun to celebrate the milestones along the way. My son asked me who you were this morning when he read your comment on my post. I love responding, "One of my blogging friends." So happy that I got to meet you in person at NCTE 2014, but even happier for the friendship we share through blogging. Happy three years!
