Thanking My Old Readers and Welcoming My Newbies!
Three nights ago, I checked my blog traffic and for the first time ever, I hit 6 figure pageviews in 1 day. There were over 100,000 visits to my website on Tuesday and I smiled so hard my cheeks hurt. Then Wednesday around 8pm, I checked my traffic and that number was trumped by over 30,000 and I wanted to cry from joy. I was at home like:
I RE-BROKE MY OWN RECORD! You guys! *weeps* This is huge for me. HUGE!
I was talking to someone a coupla weeks ago and I told her how many pageviews my site gets a month and she was like “You should be so proud!” I am, dagnabbit! It took 8 years to get here. It took 1,150+ posts. And I did it all while being a team of 1. I’ve done good. I don’t pat myself on the back often so I shall revel and luxuriate in this moment.
I was all verklempt and unable to thug. As if I haven’t been wading in a pool of my feelings enough. My thug called me from Fiji talmbout “Girl, you should be here. I’ll be back whenever I feel like it, doe.” My goon ain’t loyal.
I was feeling mighty low recently. I posted status on FB bout it talmbout how I feel like blogosphere’s class clown. I was feeling all pitiful, like people don’t take me serious and I don’t get the brand love others do. People got me SO TOGETHER immejately. My friends hemmed me up and spoke power into me. I might not be getting the love from companies and my pockets don’t match my prestige. But my voice matters. And I gotta keep doing what I’m doing and keep doing it on my own terms. I’m creating my own path. I might have to work twice as hard but hey. Whatevs. When it pays off, it will pay off majorly.
I’m already outchea like:
Again, thank you all. Because in the times when I feel like my work isn’t hitting on much, yall lift me up and you don’t even know it. I appreciate it every time you tweet one of my posts or share it on FB. For real for serious.
