Welcome back to Thankful Thursday! A day when we can gather and share in each others gratitude and lift our burdens with viewing all the blessings we have been given. Even when things are at their darkest; when we focus on our blessings it helps lift our hearts and makes our burdens a little lighter.
Today, I’m feeling an overwhelming sense of gratitude for all of you, my amazing readers. Through blogging, I have met some truly amazing people and each time I see your thoughtful notes, encouraging words and even sometimes humorous comments it brings a warm smile to my face and sometimes tears to my eyes.
Thank you all for your support! Without you, writing for JadeLouise Designs would be moot. Just a few short months ago we were barely receiving 50 visits a day! Only 1500 visits a month! Our Alexa rating was over 15 Million! And now look where are! We had over 1000 pageviews yesterday! Already just a few short hours into the day we already have over 100; and we’ve passed 17,000 page views for the last month! And our Alexa Score was last reported at 177,005! (For those who don’t know, the lower the Alexa score, the better).
I have loved hearing your comments and getting to know you! You truly bring a smile to my face every day! Thank you for being part of my journey! Thank you for participating with me! Thank you for giving me your opinions, and sharing in your experiences! Whether it be here on our blog or on Facebook, Twitter or Google+. I am truly grateful!
It is because of how amazing you are that sponsors are taking notice of our site! And I can’t wait to share with you some amazing giveaways we have lined up for the rest of the month! But I’m not at liberty to leak info yet..but you will love them! It’s why I work so hard, so that I can bring you more amazing and quality items!
I know I’m not an astounding author like Jade Austin. So when I hear your comments on how much you enjoyed an article or your words of encouragement; it makes this journey that much more special.
I try to create articles that are of use, enjoyable and will hopefully brighten your day. For 2012 we have a resolution to share uplifting content all year long. We aim to be a site where you know if you are feeling down or discouraged, you will be able to leave our blog feeling a bit better.
I know I am a better writer because of you! I draw my inspiration from you, and I thank every day that I have such amazing readers like you!
Thank you for joining me through my journey as a mom, a blogger, a product reviewer, baking addict, crochet lover, and Book-a-holic.
But before you leave, I would love to know what you are thankful for this week!
