What Were You Doing Last October 27th?

It's a strange question I know, but I just had to ask: "What were you doing last October 27th?" I bet you can't remember. The truth is, I had trouble remembering too. Luckily, I was able to search the blog archives and found that October 27th was the day I began this blog.

At the time I was unsure just where the adventure would take me. I really didn't have any expectations. It was never a money adventure, and aside from the 42 cents I have gained through AdSense it still appears to have remained that way.

I write about numerous topics. Although I'm classified as a Mommy blog I have had the opportunity to talk with all types of people from around the country. Whether you agree or not with what I have to say it is always so nice to hear your opinions. Blogging is not for the thin skinned.

The reason I decided to write about my beginnings today is to announce that I have reached a small goal. I have officially received 1000 readers. (Pop the cork, throw the confetti)!

I realize this is truly a very small number for going live 6 months ago. I recently visited one of the most popular personal blogs out there and saw that it received 700 hits for one post. I couldn't believe it. I felt so small. What was this person writing about that drew such a crowd?

Then I thought again for a moment. Although I have a small following, I enjoy the freedom I have to actually be able to read all my comments, and most days I'm able to visit my commentor's own blogs. For now, that suits me just fine.

In my dreams The Adventures of Mommy Maestro is written on billboards and surrounded by lights. My visitors are so plentiful, my counter is a week behind trying desperately to catch up. Due to the carpal tunnel in both hands I had to hire five assistants. They type while I dictate. I ride my corporate jet to book signings and give motivational speeches titled: "Turn 1000 visitors into a Million Overnight."

It's funny what a little wine can do for The Mommy Maestro's mind. Here's to all of you blogger's that stop by everyday just to see what I'm up to. May you all reach your own milestones. And don't forget, when you don't, reach for the wine. Cheers!

That's wonderful. Just curious. How do you know how many readers you have? Don't you just go by how many people are following you?
