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!
whoohoo *party poppers*

I may not be from St. Louis but Bayside is sure a long way way from Melton.
Cheers and well done on this milestone.
