37 – my blog has been read in 37 different countries.
Isn’t that just amazing?? Mostly it’s read by people in English-speaking countries – the UK of course, followed by the US, Australia, Canada and South Africa. But also Spain, Germany, Sweden, Poland, the Czech Republic, Singapore, Brazil, India. And lots more.
I’m seriously chuffed to bits by this.
And the best bit is that the people who visit the blog read more than one post – on average you read 4.7 posts every time you visit the blog. That means you’re not just reading and running, you’re spending a bit of time here. Which I hope means that you like what you’re reading. And that makes me very very happy indeed.
I’m in Feedspot’s ‘Top 20 blogs for Women Over 50 to watch in 2019’. A bit niche, perhaps – but to quote Chris Ramsey from Strictly – I’ll take that.
Welcome to my new followers. I started this blog four months after my husband told me he was leaving. It was intended to answer the question ‘What the hell happens next?’
Hell, I’m more than managing.
And you lovely people in this corner of the internet have been so supportive in helping me to manage. I have readers who regularly comment on my posts – and I think of them as friends now, even though we’ve never met. Some people have been with me from the beginning (and I have in fact met a couple of them!!).
My next post will be celebrating eight months since he left. I never expected I would use the word ‘celebrate’ in a sentence like that – but it was the first word that came to mind just now when I thought about it.
I think the emphasis of the blog as a whole has shifted – from ‘will I cope?’ to ‘actually, it’s OK out here’.
I really do appreciate every single person who has liked, followed and shared the heck out of this blog – and I really do reply to all comments from nice people.
