This is my chance to brag on Kelly.
Just two years ago, I finally convinced Kel to begin writing this blog. To that extent, I took care of registering the domain, laying out a website, and working up some graphics and logos. Kelly went to work writing, and soon she was ready to publish her first post. That night, I encouraged her to keep her expectations modest. When I began blogging, I recalled, I aimed for 50 readers. So she clicked publish, and we waited to see what happened.
In its first day, Kel’s inaugural post ended up with 600 readers.
Two weeks later, the site had reached more than 20,000 page views, and it never really slowed down. Thanks to big spikes in traffic due to a few earned media stories, the site has now notched 1,000,000 page views. And I couldn’t be prouder.
Join me in celebrating Kel’s success–which in turn is your success. This blog has become a resource to an entire community of people ready to make a change for themselves, and your success–as measured in the number of times you’ve come here to read Kelly’s story–is nothing short of inspiring.
