“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” ~ Edith Lovejoy Pierce
I love this quote. It inspires me for what the new year will bring. With this, my second post of 2012, I want to say Happy New Year to all of my readers. I received the statistics for the past year from WordPress and I am so grateful to my readers.
On January 19, 2011, I made my first post to my blog and since then, my blog has been viewed 2,200 times! Wow! That is amazing to me. In Northern America, 98.4% were from the U.S. and 1.6% were from Canada. In Europe, 35.3% were from the netherlands, 17.6% were from the U.K., 11.8% were from Norway, 7.8% were from Demark, and 5.9% were from Germany. In Asia, 48.9% Philippines, 17.8% were from India, 8.9% were from Indonesia, and Japan and Vietnam are tied at 4.4%.
It just blows me away that my little blog on researching my family history has reached people in such far away places. Thank you seems like such a small effort to show my gratitued, but I can’t say it enough.
So, to my readers: Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!
