10,000th Visit

Well I thought it would never happen, but today at 0317 AEDST, I received my 10,000th visitor.  Here is a snapshot from Sitemeter.

The lucky winner of my love (sorry no prize) was from Saint Louis, Missouri, who was searching for vegetable garden pictures.  Luckily I have lots of those posted!

What a monumental event, and would you believe that when I started out I really just blogged for my own sanity whilst I was recovering from my back injury (which is improving again BTW).  Obviously, Kim and friends had a hand in convincing me to start writing, because they were always on at me to write a book.  A book, no, but a blog was the next best thing.  I am so glad they urged me to start writing down the great things the family does around here.  I have had so much feedback about how this blog has inspired other to act, that I feel honoured just to be a part of it.

This blog has begun to take on a life of its own, and I am proud to be the writer that reaches out and touches so many individuals on a daily basis.  Here is a huge thanks to all my readers for helping me reach this milestone.

Keep on reading, there is so much more to come!

    Well done, Gavin. You’re always a good read.

    And thanks for the link to Sitemeter, too. Just signed up. I’ve always wondered how few people actually visit my blog, and soon I’ll know the awful truth!
