An Milestone

Remember, way back at the beginning of the year, when you were surfing the internet and happened upon a new little weblog dedicated to Morgan Horse Shows?  There were a few short posts about various winter Morgan events, some posts about horse related health issues and some personal ramblings and insights written by a Morgan show crazed woman named, BlackEyeBeth.  As the winter wore on, BlackEyeBeth was joined by other Morgan horse enthusiasts and more of you began to frequent, tell your friends about it, join the BlogRoll and even a few of you advertised.

Well, my fellow Morgan horse people, let me tell you, is no longer a little weblog. When I started, I hoped that a few people would show up and participate a few times, maybe comment or even post something new.  Every time someone registered, I would get so excited I would call my husband and tell him about it (I interrupted many business meetings).  Then, after a short amount of time, some brave people started interacting and posting pictures, information, and a video or two.  It was so cool to watch things take off.

To date, we have been active on the Internet for 6 months.  To attest to all of your wonderful help and support, we now have over 200 registered users, 567 posts and 841 comments to posts. We have also had close to 52,000 page hits (yes, that is THREE ZEROS!!).  What is even more impressive about that number is that it doesn’t include the times I, as the blog administrator visit  That number is all of you! The daily visits are also steadily increasing and are averaging 500-600 page visits per day.  New people are arriving all the time so we hope to see this upward trend continue.  We still have an international audience, too, with visitors from countries such as Germany, Japan, Latvia, Great Britian, Australia, and Cuba.

So once again, my hats off to you! definitely wouldn’t be anywhere near where it is right now without all of you showing up and making this such a great community.  Thanks, once again.

    I aggree AMIE9191. I also, like the positive atmosphere here. Some other breeds that I am involved in have message boards that turn into “bash fests” regarding certain bloodlines, trainers etc. :) Its a great site!!
