I launched Romance Writers on the Journey May 26, 2008 with the idea of reaching out to others like me who dream of publishing their first romance novel. I was a techno-phobe with no clue but plenty of determination. Before I launched into Cyberspace, I visited many wonderful blogs, read several great how-to-do-it-well articles, and found a provider and template I liked.
The blog began under a different URL. I soon realized my name wasn’t easy to spell or remember. Visitors remember blog names, though, so I changed the URL to reflect that.
The original site (http://keligwyn.wordpress.com) has had 2,500 page views. This site went over 7,500 during D.D. Scott’s post 12/4. Much to my amazement that is 10,000 visitors in just over six months. Not a biggie compared to the mega-successful blogs out there, but to me it’s HUGE.
I attribute this milestone to my amazing guests and wonderfully supportive readers.
And now it’s time for a little celebration . . .
In honor of my 10,000 plus visitors, I’m giving away 10 prizes.
To be entered in the drawing, leave a comment in which you share something that’s been a milestone in your life and include your email address when prompted.
I’ll hold the drawing the morning of 12/8, and notify all ten winners at once (with addresses hidden, of course). They’ll get to choose their prizes based upon who gets back to me first.
Congratulations to the winners:
Annette, Becky, Carla, Keena, Louisa, Missy, Paisley, Roxanne, Sue and Walt
