It’s all relative, isn’t it? If you’re a multi-millionaire, 50,000 may not seem like that big of a number but if you’re on food stamps, 50,000 may seem like a goldmine ~ assuming we’re talking dollars here.
What about 50,000 views on a blog? Well, if you’re Lesley Carter, it’s a drop in the “bucket” and we’re probably talking about followers not views (and major kudos to you, Lesley!), but for little ol’ me with a blog about nothing (I feel like the Jerry Seinfeld of WordPress) ~ 50,000 is *BiG* number. And today I passed 50,000 views thanks to all of you! That’s kind of cool.
So in light of this MAJOR accomplishment, I decided to check out what my top rated posts have been and I was a little surprised.
#1 is Amangiri: Peaceful Mountain (here). To this day, this is still the most unique resort I have ever visited so it doesn’t surprise me that there was interest in this one. Oddly though, it didn’t have the most likes.
#2 (and I did find this surprising) is The Creeping Fig’s Garden Faire (here). This was the recap on my sister’s garden faire and considering my sister and I are working on a garden book, I’m happy to see interest in this.
And #3 is Glitz, Glamour and Intrigue Remain Alive At The Neon Boneyard (here). I loved this post because I am obsessed with these signs. I would love to make a book out of these images but the Neon Museum does not allow any one to print images in books for resale. I suppose I will have to make a book for myself as a keepsake and maybe sell some images as fine art which they do allow.
So, is 50,000 a big number ~ yes it is ~ especially compared to my new travel blog, SKEdaddle that only has about 3,000 views (click here if you would like to help pump up that number – shameless promotion. ). I also know my number could be a big, fat “0″ if it weren’t for all of you so thank you, thank you, thank you!
