The number in my headline is how many hits this blog generated in its first year. I started this blog on January 9, 2009. Each month, my numbers keep getting higher and higher. In my first month – from January 9 through January 31 of 2009 – I received 1,927. In my last month of this year – from December 1 through December 31 – my blog received 12,907 hits.
Wow! is about all I can say. It has been kind of a shock and awe year as I watch my numbers increase month by month.
As much as I love the fact that my numbers are increasing, I have to say that honestly, I am perplexed by it. I don’t get it. Why do people want to read this blog? I am just an ordinary woman who struggles with food and weight issues – just like hundreds, or probably thousands, of other women. I just happen to share it with whomever wants to read it.
I am asking all of you who read this blog to fill me in. Please. Why do you read Confessions of a Fat Girl? What is it about this blog that interests you?
Also, is there anything you want to know that maybe I don’t write about – as far as my weight, my eating or exercise habits, my struggles, my slip-ups, etc.? Are there topics you want me to tackle?
I am thankful and very grateful for everyone who reads my blog, I would just like to know why? Any comments would be greatly appreciated. For those who don’t want to post their comments for everyone to see, please feel free to send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, if you are on Facebook, Confessions of a Fat Girl now has a page…feel free to become a fan!
