I have really enjoyed writing and posting here on my blog. I never thought I would be doing something like this, but it has been really fun and I have enjoyed all the comments and suggestions I have received since starting this journey.
I have to give thanks again to my cousin, Cathy Meder-Dempsey, who has her own blog at Opening Doors in Brick Walls for giving me this idea. I did not realize that I could look at the stats for my blog, I am still pretty new at this. I had a ticker on my home page showing how many views since I first started, but I did not know I could see where those views had come from or which of my posts had the most views.
Thanks so much to everyone who has read my stories, given me ideas for more stories and sent me pictures and documents to go along with these stories. I have even met a few people through this blog that I would never have gotten the chance to meet any other way. I am actually going to be meeting another such person sometime this month who says they have some pictures and documents and can also show us where the family home use to be for one of the stories I wrote on my husbands line. The following quote I ran across recently definitely says what I feel.
The following are my stats for today, Sunday morning, January 1st, 2017, since I first started my blog in November of 2014. I sure didn't think I would have had over 45,000 page views in just over 2 years, but that is what the stats are saying.
