This afternoon, I got a notification.
So I opened the “Stats” tab on my WordPress app and…
Turns out we reached 100,000 views today!
I mean, I know 100,000 views is small potatoes in the vast universe of the World Wide Web. But it’s pretty crazy for a little blog we started less than two months ago, as a space for Joe and I to journal our renovation. We didn’t think many people (besides us) would actually want to read it, but figured it would be fun to have something to share with friends and family who wanted to check in from time to time. I didn’t think we’d ever get to six-digit views.
But here we are… in less than 7 weeks, almost 8,000 of you have visited over 100,000 times. So in honor of this little milestone, I decided to recap the Off Center Revival…by the numbers:
54 days since we took possession of the “haunted mansion”
55 perfectly intact, unbroken spindles on the 133-year-old staircase
3 dumpsters full of plaster pieces
Four big trees removed
Two porches (one demolished, one liberated)
1 secret cistern
3 big steel beams
Has anyone seen my corkscrew?
