An ED Bites milestone

When I started this blog over two years ago, I had pretty much no expectations of how it would turn out. I thought my readers would be, essentially, me, supplemented by the random person who stumbled by from Google.

Well sometime earlier this week, I bypassed 100,000 unique visitors. I am blown away. People actually search for my blog! They also search for more random things that ultimately point them my way.

More than just hits, I've found a wonderful community of people to support and challenge me, who keep my thinking from becoming stagnant. I never, ever expected this, and I am forever grateful.

Congratulations Carrie! Your blog deserves the credit, and you should be proud at how many people you help.

It's truly amazing how something you never intend can turn into such significance.

I've recommended your blog to several people - including all of my son's treatment team -I hope they learn something. You do a great job of distilling research and news. You comments are thoughtful and thought inspiring. I'm very glad I stumbled upon you a while back.

Carrie you are an amazing blogger and an amazing person. My parents read Running on Empty to understand ED's and they were blown away by your sense of humour and your way with words. Your correspondance with me has helped me as well and I so enjoy reading you blog everyday. It is such the right mix of research, self exploration and humour <3

Take Care,

I benefit so much from your entries and your strong voice about Ed recovery. You have made a huge difference in my recovery, and I thank you for that.
