I’m sitting here with a cup of tea and my iPad, basking in the glow of my recent achievement. I knew I was getting close yesterday, but this morning, I turned over in bed, grabbed my phone and checked the time, then my WordPress stats. YES! 100,022 views. Amazing! Yes, I am.

Now granted, that’s the total number of views from when I first started my blog way back in 2013, but I never thought I’d keep writing and sharing. When I started my Blog about nothing. It’s just about my daily life, and I related it to the Seinfeld TV episode where Jerry tried to pitch a sitcom to NBC and based it on nothing.

When I started writing January 1, 2013, I was just the everyday average happily married suburban housewife living in the quaint city of McKinney, Texas, writing about happenings on the square, my family and friends, and my lovely life in Texas. My goal was to see if I could write a blog and post every single day for entire year. Little did I know that just a few months later, My heart and my world would plummet down from the sky, get dragged through the flaming mud of hell, and id be forced to survive an excruciatingly painful and devastating divorce after 39 years of marriage.

But guess what? I survived and I flourished with the help of family and friends. And, I never stopped writing or sharing. Through the tears and the laughter, this blog and this writing helped me get through the worst of times and open my eyes to the wonderful world I had been missing. I have written 2,235 consecutive posts, with 53,594 visitors, and have more than surpassed my goal of trying to write for just one year. I’ve made a zillion new friends along the way, and I’ve been inspired by each one. Writing about my “nothing life” just might inspire someone else. Who knows? How great is that?

I currently have 844 WordPress followers, 347 Facebook followers, 133 friends on Twitter and 42 friends on Tumblr. That’s a lot of friends. How blessed am I? Bless YOU all for being a part of it. Sending virtual hugs.
