One million visits. Can that be right? I just double-checked my stats because I still can’t quite believe it. In its first 11 months in the blogosphere, Hooked on Houses has already had over one million page views! I’m not sure how that’s possible, but I’m grateful. Very grateful. So I just had to take a moment to say thanks to all of you who have been such loyal readers. Thank you for reading my posts, linking to them, Stumbling them, telling your friends about them, and commenting on them day after day. You make all the hard work worthwhile!
I hope you’ll continue hanging out here with me in 2009. Here are a few things I have planned for the new year:
1) I’m starting a new series called “Movie Mondays.” Each Monday I’ll feature a house from a film I like or that you have requested. You guys have given me so many great ideas for movies and TV shows to write about that covering them all should keep me busy until 2010. (Coming up next Monday, by popular demand–Jude Law’s character’s house in “The Holiday.”)
2) I’m resurrecting “Hooked on Fridays.” Starting next week, I’ll post Mister Linky each Friday. If you write a post on your blog that day about something you’re hooked on–something family friendly, of course, and in some way related to houses, decorating, organizing, or homekeeping–then you can link up here with us! Sound good?
3) Finally, I’ll be featuring a Fantasy Open House Week later this month with photos from the Indianapolis Home-a-Rama home show. You gotta love a good Home-a-Rama, and this one didn’t disappoint. You won’t want to miss a single house!
Thanks again for being here. I hope you know I don’t take a single one of you for granted! -Julia
P.S. I was interviewed by Jill at The Good Life for Less. Hop on over there if you want to see what I had to say about my life as a blogger. And maybe leave a comment if you don’t mind, so it looks like some people were actually interested in what I had to say. Thanks! I knew I could count on you.
