Chubby Hubby, which I started as an experiment to learn about the blogging world, turns 1 in a couple of months. It’s been a really amazing experience so far and I’m constantly amazed by the number of readers that this site’s been getting and the great comments from wonderful people, many of whom also maintain remarkable food blogs of their own.
I was very pleasantly surprised this past week when I checked my site’s statistics. During September, October and November, Chubby Hubby was getting around 17,000 to 18,000 hits each month. In December, however, the hit rate jumped… by more than 10,000 hits (it got 28, 580 hits, with 19,516 being unique visitors). Okay, for some of my peers, like the lovely Pim (who, by the way, kicked my butt in the Gridskipper World’s Best Urban Food Blog competition last month), that’s nothing. She gets that many hits between brushing her teeth and her first coffee. But for me, it’s awesome. Hell, that’s more readers than most of the food magazines sold in this country! I’m quite frankly stunned. And so very, very flattered that so many more people have stopped by.
So, thank you all so very much for making this little blog not quite so little.
