23,215 reasons to say thank you!

2010 April 2

So hopefully by now you’ve realized that yesterday’s post was just an April Fool’s joke. They’d have to drag me kicking and screaming (and make sure there weren’t any sharp objects around) before I’d ever move to Dallas.  Besides, I could never leave all of you dillos :)

Before we head out for this holiday weekend, I want to give a big thank you to all of y’all. According to Google, we had 23,215 absolute unique visitors last month who viewed 76,143 pages! WordPress says we had 54,340 visitors. That’s NUTZ!

When we launched 9 months ago, we just wanted to bring people together and share our love of Austin-and maybe have some fun along the way. We would never have imagined that so many people would read this ish. It blows my effing mind!

Roary reacts to April's traffic figures!

In the last few months, we’ve also grown our Facebook Fan page to 1,400 very active readers. People are commenting and sharing. It’s starting to feel like a party up in there! We’ve also got weekly giveaways and tons more, so don’t miss out! Add us!

Gotta give big love to all the staff at RoA. I <3 my team. Also, many thanks to Laurie Gallardo at KUT and Jon Pattillo over at South Side Sanctuary for guidance. Drinks to all our guest bloggers.

Big wet sloppy blogging kisses to all the Austin bloggers for making this a community: Austin Eavesdropper, Ultra8201, Austin Town Hall, The Peen Scene, This is Life in Austin, Knuckle RumblerMisoHungryNow, Fete and Feast, ATXBS, DAB, Two Groove, Slackerwood, Austin Sound and everyone else that I read daily :)

Special thanks to the bands, musicians, artists, chefs and awesome folk who we’ve interviewed or videoed.

But most of all: Big dillo hugs to all of you! You guys make this so effing amazing. Thank you!

Keep Austin a-mazing.
