Major Milestone

Just six weeks before ED Bites turns five (Yes, I will be having a blog birthday party), I checked my stats and found that sometime in the last week, my blog hit a massive milestone.

Over 500,000 of you (half a stinking million!!) agree that ED does, in fact, bite.

I'm blown away. I never thought that anyone would really ever read my blog, let alone that I would still be blogging after five years. I thought I would get sick of blogging or you guys would get sick of ME long before I hit this mark. But that hasn't happened.

So hats off to all of my readers, for making these past five years possible.

Hats off to you for being such a wonderfully open, real and advocate for something so commonly misunderstood.

You've made more than a few ripples.

Cheers to you!

What I really like is the fact that you write things that are interesting, real, honest, non-triggering, helpful, scientific and real-life stuff.... you have written lots that keeps us interested but I believe what is better is the fact you do it in a really healthy way for us readers! There have been all sorts of debates but even then almost always its been healthy debate. I think it shows the skills you have in balancing the information in a great blog.

Well done on nearly five years and over 500,000 reads!

And might I say, when it comes to eating disorders, your blog is ESSENTIAL reading.

What a great victory and milestone Carrie. And a wonderful testament to how much you've inspired others.
You and your blog have paved the way for so many to recover. And for parents to understand their child's eating disorder and how to best support recovery

Congratulations Dear Carrie

Congrats! Your blog never grows stale, and it's a great role model for those of us bloggers out there. And most refreshing is your honesty, whether you are up or down. Ultimately you share your determination to push through, which is so inspiring for your readers.

Enjoy the big day!

I found your blog a year and a half ago, and it has been a godsend to me as I continue to negotiate my relations with eating disordes and recovery. Many thanks.

You deserve the 500 000 (!) hits. You inspired me to get better, and have helped me along the way. Thank you. <3

I love your site, you're honest without being triggering which is a big thing I look for in supportive literature. Keep up the good work!

I'm a recovered anorexic but now struggling to overcome sugar addiction. I'm sure a lot of readers can relate... shifting from one ED to another is pretty common. Laugh and cry along with the yakking sugar addict at

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.
