This is my 100th blog post!
I am a bit of a numbers geek so it seemed a shame not to celebrate with a few more numbers. Humour me….
My blog was created for my birthday by my husband, and I have been posting my ramblings for exactly 10 months.
I have had a satisfyingly palindromic 7557 visitors.
I have 384 messages and 16,949 spam messages – that’s a whopping 98% straight into the bin. Hooray for the spam filter!
I have used 484 pictures within my blog posts.
My most popular post, both in shares and views, is You’re Not Alone. This is a post I wrote describing my experience of being involved in an anthology in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. It has it’s own lovely set of numbers:
The anthology includes 30 contributers, covering 12 countries.
It will be exactly 100 days from the first call to action to its publication on the 11th of July. This is also exactly 1 year since I ventured into the weird world of social media wanting to publish my writing.
A fabulous 100% of the proceeds will go to the charity. Please help the number of sales grow to huge proportions and push it up to Number 1 on the Amazon charts.
You can pre-order a copy on Amazon.
The nicest numbers of all are ones that can’t be counted. They are the number of hours people have put into this charity project and the number of people who’ve offered their support, advice and expertise. By far the happiest number of all, is the number of people who started out as names on a screen, and have now become friends.
