Three Million Thanks!

I cannot believe this. I began this blog in March 2008. In January 2018, my stats showed Tracing Rainbows had been viewed 2 million times.

But the views have increased significantly since then - so now, less than three years later, the blog is well past the three million mark. 

When you are watching the odometer on the car, for a significant mileage, you peer diligently most days - then forget, only to see it has tripped over all the zeroes to.....004. The Big Moment probably went unnoticed when you were driving into the supermarket car park.

I haven't been checking regularly. Over the summer, in Norfolk, I noticed I was picking up around 1K hits a day, and decided there were a lot of bored people at home during the pandemic. Maybe I will get to 3M before I get to my pension, I thought [April 2021] And then on Monday I notice the stats had crept over 3,004,000. What can I say to you all but ...

I shall have to do a grateful giveaway. If you would like to be in the draw, then comment below, and put DRAW as the first word [if you just want to comment, miss that word out] The winner will get one of my specially personalised embroidered Lockdown Christmas Tree Ornaments.

It's lovely to know that there are so many friends, old and new, out there. Even in these strange, separated times, we can still share good thoughts, kindness and encouragement.


  1. Draw
    Congratulations! You are the most conscientious blogger that I know with at least one (very interesting) post every day. Thank you.
    And please put my name in the draw.

  2. Congratulations! I'm not surprised as your blog is both fun and educational.
    Our car clocked up 77.777 miles this week, just as it dropped to 7°C outside. I wonder how many car accidents occur as people watch the miles clock over?!

  3. Thank you for your blog Angela. Your posts are always a joy. Thought provoking, entertaining, a daily delight.

  4. Congratulations I reckon you might be at 4 million before you retire!
    (I'm counting down to April 2021 too).
