It was one year ago today that we started this blog with our first post about a snowy April 1st. (There was no surprise snow this April 1st.) Coincidentally ;-), our site has passed the 10,000-hit mark on the day of this anniversary! (Well, I am making that assumption because our all-time site stats are holding steady at 9,999 hits as of 9:55 PM on April 2nd). We weren’t sure where our little blog about our family happenings would lead, but we feel extremely blessed to have this many “hits” on our blog (FYI – a “hit” represents one visit to any page on the site and is not necessarily a measure of the number of visitors. For example, one visitor could click on three pages which would equal three “hits” but only one visitor. It took me a little while to figure that out :-)). According to our site stats, we’ve had visitors from 25 different countries in just the last two months.
Obviously, when we started, we did not realize where the focus of our blog would lead. However, we are thankful for the opportunity to write about our journey and receive encouragement and grace from you. Your reading and support have been an important part of our healing and we sincerely thank all of you. We will continue to write as we feel led with the hope of helping us better understand the journey of grief that we all take at some time in our lives.
Blessings and with trust and hope,
P.S.: We added a poll to the sidebar. If you have a moment, we are interested in your response. Thanks. 🙂
