500 posts, 30,000 hits

Seven degrees at 8:30am. Heavy rain and lots of mud. A child's heaven, a mother's hell!

A singular occurrence.

The hit counter topped 30,000 at more or less the same time as the post-counter hit the round 500. Thank-you once again to all the well-wishing readers and correspondents who make my life in cyberspace such fun.

And not only in cyberspace, but also in the real world. Like Frankenstein's monster A View from Carmine Superiore seems to have taken on a life of its own and staggered out of the cyberspace laboratory into the light of day. Thank-you again to the person who orchestrated without my knowledge two articles about the blog in the local press. Thank-you to the nameless mountain biker who passed by the other day, heaping praise on my head. And thank-you to the many friends and acquaintances in Carmine, Cannero, Cannobio and beyond who read from time to time.

Hi Louise, Congratulations on all those hits, and the printing of your blog episodes in the local press. You deserve the recognition of your writing. Its brilliant stuff.

Congrats! Does this mean the press are all over you? IF they can get up that hill...

Better to have praises heaped on one's head than mud in one's shoes, I always say...

Brenda said...

Congratulations! I love checking in and seeing what you are up to :)

How are the chickens? Do we get more pictures?

That's exciting, Louise! I'm trying to imagine what 30,000 people would look like. That's a stadium full of your fans!

CathM said...

CONGRATS! Well done you, for hosting such an exciting blog!

Vanessa said...

500 posts is really quite a large amount of writing isn't it...I mean if each post is 500 words you've got a book about double the size of that book you wrote about law. Good grief!
