You blow my mind....

If you saw my post on Saturday, you know that I started my blog last Tuesday and 5 days later I had hit 1000 page views.  I was (and still am) stunned and shocked at how receptive people have been to the whole thing!

I've been watching the stats since then and the growth has been exponential.  From Saturday to today, I just hit 2000 page views!!!  My little ole blog didn't exist 8 days ago. . .

My printables and words ("forgiveness" and "this sums it up" posts) have been pinned/repinned on Pinterest 309 times and liked an additional 50 times.  Pinterest and FB shares (from you all) have my demographics all over the WORLD!  While most of my action obviously comes from the U.S., I've had multiple pages views from United Kingdom (Joni, is that you?), Russia, Canada, India, Japan, Argentina, Germany, and one each from Mexico and Serbia.

Why am I telling you this?  Because, I want you to know how much you blow my mind.  YOU are the ones who are liking it and encouraging me.  YOU are the ones that are sharing it, telling other people about it, pinning it, emailing and FBing me.  YOU are sending me messages and notes to tell me the RAOK that you have been doing which keeps me inspired and RAOKin'.

Together, we've already changed the world.  In 8 days.  I don't even know how to count the "ripple effect" of what we have collectively done.

What started out as a way for me to quit thinking about myself and my issues and focus on other people has turned into one of the biggest, most positive and mind-blowing events of my life.  Because of YOU.

"Thank you from the bottom of my heart" is totally inadequate.  But it will have to do for now.  Let's keep RAOKin'!!
