Time to celebrate!!

I reached a big milestone with my blog yesterday...

well, at least I think it's pretty big!!

I reached 7,000 pageviews on my blog!!


Why is this so great?

Why is the number 7,000 so significant?

I don't rightly know...

but, it seemed like a nice number to celebrate!

I hadn't really been keeping up with the "numbers" per-say, until I found a little widget to put on my home page that counted my pageviews. That was a week or so ago.

(If your a blogger, it's probably not new to you, but I tend to be a little slow with all the latest gadgets on Blogger.)

I thought that the number 7,000 was a nice round number to celebrate...plus the fact that the number 7 is my favorite number.

What makes it my favorite?

I don't rightly know that either.

It just is.

Go with it.

I thought that a neat way to celebrate my FABULOUS blog milestone, would be to give yah some interesting facts about the number 7,000.

(Okay, well I find them interesting.)

Again, go with it.
