Today marks the first 100 days of this blog. I consider it a joy to watch the progress in terms of traffic growth, as well as other parameters.
I must confess that I never expected the warm embrace and popular acceptance that this blog generated amongst an ever-growing fans of this work, particularly, in the first month, as shown by the graph on the right.
We have have a robust crowd of articulate 'gardeners' from over 91 countries after 100 days of this flourishing experience. At the last count, our unique visitors per day had crossed the 1,000 mark and our daily page views had shot over the 3,500 mark by Google Analytics metrics. What more? In 100 days unique visitors have crossed the 26,000 mark while pave views had crossed the 78,000 mark.
Income is naturally still low for a new site like ours, except you consider some $150 as significant, it can't pay for my internet connection in 100 days. Thank God for the free hosting by Blogger. I have already said telenovela blogging is just part of my passion, I wasn't doing it for money, if money comes out of it, then, it is just a natural spin off from a talented content production on the web. I am contented and joyful with the followership that this site has generated in a little over 3 months.
This blog has attracted the cream of articulate fans of the telenovela genre in the last 100 days. Useful tips and solutions to many questions are being offered, not only by the blogger, but also by gardeners around the world.
I salute and appreciate all of you, 'gardeners' that throng this blog daily to socialize, yes, this is fast turning to a social networking site. At the rate people exchange email address and telephone numbers and including meeting new chatting mates here. I am happy that such a platform is being created for fellow gardeners.
It is one thing to appreciate compliments, and compliments are abundantly coming from gardeners to me. It is however another, to experience the outpouring of prayers for me by fans. I almost concluded that 'prayer warriors were taking over our garden in the last two week. But let me tell you, I was most moved by your prayers, it's touching... to the depths of my spirit, I can't ask for more motivation and inspiration...
Love you all, I promise that this is just the beginning of a refreshing burst of entertaining activities here. The next 100 days shall be explosive. I have renewed my commitment to serve you the more. Like my husband used to say, those who have nothing to offer would suffer. Because I have something to offer you, we all would enjoy and rejoice in this Yuletide season....
Merry Christmas to all gardeners,
