10,000 Hits

Yesterday my site reached 10,000 hits and that's pretty exciting. I logged on at 9,999 and told Kosta where it was and he wanted to be the 10,000th visitor and so he was. That was really cool. He wanted to know what the prize was and I told him that I was not giving out a prize so I'll just make him an extra frappe and gave him a kiss on the cheek.
What started out as a means to communicate with my friends and family back home has become so much more than that. I have the benefit of keeping everyone up to date and also meeting others with similar interests. I find it amazing and flattering that there are so many people out there that think my life is interesting enough to keep reading and I'm flattered. OK, I guess that my life can 't quite be classified as boring since I have so much to blog about and little time to do it. Boy, if you only knew the whole shebang . I think I'll save all of that for the reality show that I always joke about and definitely the book. I'm not joking about the book though. Someday, somehow it will surface.
Anyway, I just wanted to mention that I think that reaching 10,000 hits is amazing. Thank you for reading! Who knows how the future will unfold...


  1. 10,000! Wow! Congratulations!

  2. Nice hits!

    Congratulations - the best thing about expat blogs is there are so many expats and we all like to commiserate with one another!

  3. Congratulations! I think Kosta's other prize should be his own log-in so that he doesn't have to comment under the girly name "Cheryl." Unless he likes it that way, of course! :-)

  4. Syd, Thanks! I think that it's a good #.

    Mel, you are so right! I found your blog and others before I moved so that I could see what's going on over here and I'm so glad that I did because now I have great new friends!

    Lulu-LOL! I'll tell him. I'll create one for him-that's it!

  5. That's so great, Cheryl. I have so enjoyed reading your blog. Every entry has something interesting. Speaking of which, I'm still waiting for your bug porn business!!

  6. Thanks Laurie, I'm glad that you think so. The bug porn the works! :) I like the idea of stationary. I could also make a killing on calendars! You know what? I'm really going to have to look into it...if a guy can do a silly dance in every city around the world, why can't I take advantage of bugs in compromising postitions?:)

  7. Exactly! I'll be first in line to put in an order.

  8. Congratulations on your 10,000th blog hit!
    I love reading your blog, and stalking other blogs through your blog :) hahaha
    I usually share your blog with the ladies at work in the morning, they get a kick out of it.
    Even though we talk often I like to see the pics you post :)
    talk to you soon!

  9. Ok Laurie!

    Pumpkin-Thanks! I'm glad that you like reading and sharing the blog. And I'm really glad that you can share it with your coworkers and get a laugh, that's nice to know.
    Talk to you soon! xxxooo

  10. the ladies at work love to see the pics of the kids and when I tell them things about the kids and especially Foti they laugh, and definately the owl pics. They almost always say the same thing " why don't you go visit?" I know I need to!!!
