Missed it! 500,000 Views and Counting.

IMG_7407This morning when I got up at 6:30 to cook for tonight’s dinner guests before the day got too hot, I was 128 views from the 500,000 mark.  Reading it instead at 28 views off the mark, I constructed a post that was a sort of countdown.  Once posted, I noticed my mistake so took it down, thinking I’d post it again after 100 views.  I went to buy flowers and shop for beer and other groceries and returned to find I’d passed the mark without notice, let alone fanfare. Nonetheless, it is nice to pass the half million mark. Believe me, I could have never predicted I’d be this dedicated to a blog when I started out four years ago plus. Thanks for helping me get this far.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Congratulations 🙂 It’s a great milestone!

    Now, I’m waiting for the million mark now, but since the half million, I am less jazzed by numbers than I used to be. I’m mainly glad I still get readers!

        It shows me that, but I see that some sites have the actual number on their front page, and they are often big numbers. Is that available or not with WordPress?

        I can’t find it, but I think it’s okay to do without, especially since mine is a business website so it doesn’t matter how many people see it really. Either there are clients or not, but showing how many views it has had doesn’t reflect that.
