Thank You!

I was checking my stats yesterday, and I realized that I've reached a few milestones with this blog.  First, this is my 199th post, so tomorrow's post will be my 200th post since starting on December 3rd, 2010.  Those who know me personally wouldn't be surprised that I've found 200 things to chat about in the past 7 months! 

What I'm pleasantly surprised about is the fact that people are reading what I chat about!  Yesterday my blog passed 10 000 page views.  This may be small potatoes to those of you with super-popular blogs that average that many hits a month, but for me, this is cause for celebration! 

I owe everyone who has taken a peek at my blog over the past 7 months a gigantic THANK YOU!  Whether you're a regular reader or only check in occasionally to see what's new, I appreciate it.  Knowing that people are reading encourages me to continue to post everyday, and to keep looking for new things to talk about. 

If you're new to the site and haven't had the chance to really look around, start with the About Me tab to get an idea of what I'm all about! 

The Menu Plan tab includes the weekly dinners I serve my family, all gluten free and dairy free.  I update it weekly.

The Recipes tab includes some of the recipes I enjoy preparing, and is updated regularly. 

Gluten Free Travel has posts about places I've been, and is a mixture of personal experience posts and recommendations of things to do and where to find great gluten free food.  This tab gets updated every time I travel.  Over the course of the summer, there will be posts about Rice Lake, Ontario and Washington, DC. 

Product Reviews includes all the reviews I've written about products and services, mainly related to living gluten free.  This tab gets updated every time I post a review.

The About GF/Celiac tab is next on my list to update.  I've been compiling information to add to the tab, and the plan is to have it up and functional by the end of the summer. 

Finally, the 100 in 2011 tab is where I post the books I've read over the course of the year.  I signed up for a reading challenge, to read 100 books in 2011.  Click on the tab to learn more and sign-up for the challenge yourself!  I post the titles and the authors there, and I'm open to suggestions.  I would love to hear what you're reading or any recommendations you may have!

I would be remiss if I didn't encourage you to check out some of the fabulous blogs that I follow as well.  Scroll down the right hand side of the blog to find my blog list.  It updates regularly, showing the five blogs with the most recent posts.  Some of these bloggers were the first to follow my blog, and a good deal of my traffic was generated, especially in the beginning, from their sites.  These bloggers are funny, smart, interesting and well worth a read. 

Finally, if you're interested in following, you can click on the Follow tab on the right hand side, or you can enter your email address in the Receive Updates in Your Inbox box to get my daily posts delivered right to your inbox every day. 

Happy reading, and THANK YOU again for making this blog a success!
