At 7:45 a.m. Pacific time my blog surpassed a new level – 40,000 views! (Yes, I DID spend the last hour refreshing every 3 minutes so I could get a snapshot of the big number – but you readers are just too fast for me, I caught it at 40,002!)
My main purpose in making a big deal about my new blog’s milestone is to thank YOU for your support and readership, for your comments and shares. Without YOU I would not have reached this.
I find great joy every morning in logging in and seeing the list of countries that has read my posts. This has been a great learning experience for me. I have enjoyed the interactions, the comments, the shares, and the questions. In addition, some of your comments have given me new insight and new topics to write about.
This has been an avenue of sharing my thoughts, a place where I can post what I’ve learned, and a way for me to follow the advice of 2 old souls who connected with me recently, “Save the children, save the earth.”
There are many ways we can help our planet, and the souls who inhabit her. Mine is just ONE way. Perhaps yours is growing a community garden, or speaking publicly, or feeding the hungry and clothing the cold; maybe your path leads you to create music to heal the soul or maybe just even something as simple (yet profound) as meditating and raising the energy that will create a positive impact all who you come in contact with.
As I can see every day on my WordPress map, this is a planet with truly no borders, and we all come together here in this space to learn, connect, share, spread the word, and do our part to “save the children, save the earth.”
I look forward to the next awesome number: 50,000…and then…onward to 100,000!
