I'd like to personally send a big, open-armed welcome to my favorite month of the year, or what this year I am calling, #Birthdember. But more on my big plans for #Birthdember later, I have bigger things to tell you about today.
Venus Trapped in Mars hit ONE MILLION PAGE VIEWS!
I've always said I believe in celebrating blog victories, so here I am, getting all excited and junk. It happened on Saturday morning when I woke up and checked my stats. I may or may not have screamed out loud right in someone's ear.
I absolutely love blogging, and I love the opportunities and friendships it has brought me. I have shared the happy things, I have shared the struggles, I have shared the hard times and now it feels like I'm at a point where I'm currently sharing some downright insanely happy times.
In this past year and 9 months, thanks to Fan Friday, I stayed true to the original reason I started this blog, which was to write about sports. Even though those posts don't pour in the page views, and maybe even caused me to lose some readers along the way, I stuck with my passion because I wanted to, and I am really proud of that.
This blog has transitioned from a clumsy stack ofBuzzfeed-esq posts, into a blog with a definitive face. I can't even put into words how much fun I've had on the path to one million, the opportunities that never would have come my way otherwise and the dear friends that have come into my (real)life. All because of a computer and an internet connection. I just freaking love blogging.
