Well, it’s been about five months since I launched Beyond the Gray (boy, the time sure does fly!). After the first three months, I was thrilled to see 2,000 hits on the blog (I’m still stunned by this response because it FAR surpasses any of my other blogging efforts). As you can imagine, I was even more thrilled when that number doubled in the two months that followed (we surpassed 4,000 hits yesterday!).
This positive response to Beyond the Gray excites me for a number of reasons: 1) I know you can’t all be family members, so to think that my words of inspiration are reaching eyeballs beyond my immediate circle of family and friends means that I’m beginning to accomplish what I set out to do (inspire and motivate people just like you to embrace your passion and follow your dreams) and 2) people must actually care about and like what I’m writing, enough to return on a regular basis and hopefully even tell a friend.
You have no idea how happy these things make me. And naturally I want to keep the momentum going in 2010. That’s why I’ve been planning a bunch of fun new ideas, projects, experiments and series for the new year. Stay tuned!
