Unfortunately the problem with the free hit counter I installed when I first started my blog is that it stopped working after a while. Something to do with Terence installing Linux and cookies or something, but it would not let me log on. Not even when I clicked on the "I forgot my password" button and it sends me the same password I have been using from the start. So it is a bit disappointing that I lost all those initial stats. But we can't sit and mope and feel sorry for ourselves. As Terence says "that's what you often get when you use things that are free". So recently I installed it again and it works fine.
But to get back to the point, it is so cool to see which places some of my readers come from, places like New Zealand (of course), the UK, the US, South Africa, Germany, Australia, Canada, Ireland, Sweden, Maysia, Italy, Hong Kong, Mauritius, Netherlands and Jordan.
Recently I received an email from one of our readers and the email gave me an idea. Now that I'm making this photo collage for our wall, wouldn't it be great if all our blog readers could send us a photo of themselves which I could then use in this photo collage, because the best thing about this journey has always been knowing we are not alone.
We don't get a lot of comments. Let's be honest child cancer is not the world's most interesting subject and I sure wish I could write as entertaining and compelling as some of the other people out there like Sharon, Suzanne, Amy, Renee, Kristie, Sandy and Carole. Well, actually all the blogs and journals I follow are all good, but these ones in particular make me wish I could write like them. But my blog served it's purpose, it's done what it was meant to do and to the best of my abilities I have always tried to share as much of our journey as I could. I am so proud to have had the chance to create awareness of something that I certainly did not have a clue about before Bianca was diagnosed.
So as we near the end of our treatment, please could I ask that you let me know who you are even if you never comment or email, but simply lurk in the background, if you've been a reader of our blog, I'd simply love to know to be able to share with Bianca. If you don't feel comfortable leaving a comment, please do send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you could send a photo of yourself so I could show Bianca who all the readers of her story are, I'd really appreciate that!
Just knowing that we are not alone, that makes the world of difference!!!
