Thanks to my readers for pushing me over this benchmark I never thought i would reach and certainly not in under six months. I didn't really think about whether or not i would be successful (what ever that is) at blogging. I didn't aim to rake up numbers. I was just having fun taking all the thoughts running around my head, giving them a shuffle and putting them down, somehow. I must be a frustrated writer as it seems so natural and effortless.

Success for me is not about the numbers though i will admit it gives me a thrill. Its about the connections i make through your comments and the comments i make on other blogs. It feels a little like you're my folks, my small town community that i miss, the family members that are far away. We don't always agree, we can have periods where we go MIA, some things we are passionate about and others its take it or leave it but always we appreciate each other and value that we are there for each other. I've shared your joys and your sorrows and in return I've received the same. I've met some of you and made new friends.
I know, if i tried, i could take this little blog somewhere but I'm not really interested. When i told Hubby I'd reached 10K he said "Congratulations, can you make money out of it"? Not interested, sorry Darl.
My Goodness, when i was looking for an appropriate image to entertain you, so you didn't fall asleep mid post, i was bombarded with advertising on how to do it. It really is a growing market. I feel like a need a shower!
I've read that not sticking to a theme is blog suicide yet I've covered personal and family milestones, veggie gardens, self sustainability, jokes, mechanical advice, and workshops. All those things make up my life and who i am. I think i would bore myself if i only ever spoke about the one thing or theme.
I don't have a long list of drafts in the ready. Apart from some of the workshops I've done that would have ended up "War and Peace" if i hadn't broken them up into parts, every post has been a one off written on the fly and was about what was happening to me at the time.
I know that these stats will probably only interest me but it is my journey im recording. Again, thank you readers.

It wasn't that bad and was really about a family outing.
Oh Well, i learnt to stay away from sport.
"The Boy's" are wanting the computer for a game so I'd better fly.
