Happy Wednesday everyone!
For the first time since my website’s inception, the number of daily website visits has surpassed the 100 views mark! And not only that, but my website broke this record TWICE in two days straight!
On Monday, October 14, 2013, my site had a total of 103 views! On Tuesday, October, 15, 2013, my site had a total of 101 views! Out of these numbers, there were 72 and 64 viewers recorded as “new visitors” on Monday and Tuesday respectively.

And that’s not all folks!
My next WordPress website milestone is fast approaching…10,000 overall views! As of October 16, 2013, the total number of website views has surpassed 9,950!
Now, for those of you who have followed my original blog and website for a long time, my old website actually surpassed the 10,000 mark a long time ago. However, I had a much harder time keeping track of stats because my old website’s visit counters kept resetting and I did not save my old stats from Google’s Blogger service when I transitioned over to WordPress in June of 2012 (I didn’t give that a second thought when I deleted my old Blogger Blog). My best guess is that my actual website/blog visit count is already past the 30,000 overall views mark.
A HUGE THANKS!
I want to thank all of my viewers, contributors, and all who have helped me build and expand my website over the years! I don’t know what I would do without your support! In the coming months, I hope to be able to finish up my three portals (Tampa, Norfolk, and Europe) and then begin my New York City portal!
As always, if you’d like to contribute something to my site, or want to post feedback, please feel free to drop me a line via the Contact page!
