About 11 months ago, I posted about an ED Bites milestone: I had tracked over 100,000 unique site visits. At that time, ED Bites was a little over 2 years old.
Less than one year later, at 11:17 pm Eastern Standard Time tonight, I hit another milestone:
So to whomever visited from Christchurch, New Zealand, I have to say this: thanks.
And thanks to all of my readers, not just for coming, but for staying. Getting people traipsing through on internet searches is always nice (even if it is so that I can laugh at the search terms they used to find me!), but it doesn't leave me feeling like I made a big difference. Having people come back, day after day, having them comment and provide time and energy and thought into their discussions, having them be thoughtful and respectful even when disagreeing with me, all of this--I can say honestly that this is one slam-bang, hot damn reason to recover.
I am profoundly honored to have you, all 200,000 of you, in my life and a part of this blog.
