Another milestone, sooner than expected

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.

Thanks to you, Carrie, for sharing both the scientific info and your very personal thoughts and feelings. As long as you keep on blogging, I'll keep on reading!

Wow, I didn't know that you were able to obtain a wonderful break down of data like that. A geek like me loves that kind of stuff :D

I really enjoy reading your blog Carrie, and contributing to discussion around the topic of EDs. I think it's important that those of us who have experienced EDs are able to share thoughts and feelings in a public forum.

Well done, and keep blogging!

You've been a part of my life for a couple of years. Thank you for your wonderful distillation of research and insightful commentary and your friendship. That you took the time to reach out when my boy was entering rezzy meant a lot.

I have learned a lot from you.

congratulations, carrie! and as someone who is just starting out, can i ask you a question? how did you promote your blog, at first? right now it's just my friends and family reading, and while that means so much, i'm interested in getting it out there to the wider ed community. thanks so much, kate (

Congratulations! You've earned it!

I'm a science writer, a jewelry design artist, a bookworm, a complete geek, and mom to a wonderful kitty. I am also recovering from a decade-plus battle with anorexia nervosa. I believe that complete recovery is possible, and that the first step along that path is full nutrition.
