My Blog Turned 1 Today

It has finally been a year since I started this blog. Its been fun. At times I wanted to give up but I've realized that blogging can be useful for archives. It is also fun to blog when I am bored. When I first started this blog I wasn't expecting to get many readers. My aim was to at least get about 1,000 views in a year. It might sound like a small target but I wasn't expecting anyone to really read my blog. My blog as of today has over 29, 000 + views. That's impressive to me. I've never thought I'll reach that much views with my little blog.

I want to thank everyone who has read and still reads my blog. It's a good feeling knowing that there are people around the world who are reading my little blog. I want to thank all the people who linked my posts to their blogs especially Gymnastics Coaching. He is one of the major reasons why my blog is read and gets views. And finally thanks for all the comments, it's nice to read your thoughts and opinions. This past year I got 111 comments, including my own comments. My blog may not have the best grammar but I try to do my best. Thank you everyone and have a Happy New Year!
