Thank you, Pinterest.

Do you watch Late Night with Jimmy Fallon? And do you also watch his Friday "Thank You Notes?" They crack me up. Here's one of my recent favorites...

All this to say:
Thank you, Pinterest....

For helping direct readers to my blog and making me feel like a celebrity.
Guys, when I checked my stats on this blog today, I was at 89,321 views. Holy smokes! That's almost 100,000!

When I posted Challenge Me in February, I didn't have NEARLY that many pageviews. That post included the photo of the PVC pipe used to store a curling iron and hair dryer.

(this one)
I pinned that photo from my post to Pinterest and about 4 months later it caught on like wildfire. (Why it took a whole 4 months, I don't know...) I mean, seriously, it's all over! I made sure to let my friend Tracy know how awesome her dad is for making this in the first place and letting me take a picture of it!

All this exposure thanks to Pinterest! I see the proof when I look at the statistics on my Blogger stats page. The highest stats for traffic source are Pinterest by a mile. I began noticing my page views going from 20 or 30 a day to about 300 per day! I am now averaging about 10,000+ views a month! 10,000!!

That's insane!

All that time I thought nobody was reading because nobody was commenting, but apparently that wasn't a good thermometer of how much my blog was being seen.

Since I discovered the traffic coming mostly from Pinterest, I began pinning every post I write. Afterall, Pinterest inspired my blog in the first place. And the whole point of it is to try things from there and report the outcome.

What I think would be awesome is if you, my lovely readers, would join me in pinning things from my page. If you like a recipe or a craft idea, would you also pin it to your Pinterest boards and help expose my blog a bit more? I would be ever grateful!

In advance...
Thank you, "Don't Worry. Be Happy. Keep Learning." readers...

For continuing to visit my blog and making me feel so loved. 
Feel free to go to MY PINTEREST and follow me!

Happy Pinning!
