Page views keep climbing: Thank you!

I've worked on this blog for a little more than a year, but the real beauty of the "work" is that I can do as much or as little as I want to. I've shared regular snapshots of what I like to cook and eat, and how I prepare various dishes for my family or friends. I take photos when I feel inspired and sometimes even get them posted with my recipes.

In the beginning (August 2010), I didn't have any real analytics to follow. I posted recipes and tips when the inspiration struck, or when I made something particularly interesting or photogenic. A year in, I'm excited to see how many regular followers keep coming to this blog. I have many more lurkers than I do posters, but I appreciate the interest. And I'm eager to hear from you, whenever you do post comments.

For the last several months, I've averaged about 100 views per day. Last week, I reached my highest single day of views with 197. And today I noticed that September is likely to be my highest viewed month since I started this blog. Right now there are 3,177 views for the month. That's just behind August 2010, which had 3,282 views. That's a pittance for some websites, I know, but I appreciate everyone who takes the time to check out this blog.

Since there are still a couple of days left in September, I expect it will become my highest-viewed month. To those of you who come to this site, a sincere thank you. I apppreciate your support and I welcome your feedback.

Happy cooking!
