I have to record this date so I don’t forget about it. Today is March 13, 2013 and I had a great evening. My new podcast, SlenderSafari, has only been in iTunes for 2 weeks with 3 episodes and a 1 minute intro episode. I thought it was doing pretty good on the number of downloads since yesterday I was at 174 downloads. Then today, I had 15 downloads! Most of the time I only have 5 or 6 unless it’s a day I release a new episode, then I can get upwards of 20 downloads. But I hadn’t released episode 4 yet and for some reason, the show “took off” in my opinion. It may not be hundreds of downloads in 1 day, but I don’t think my brain could wrap around that thought, if it happened!
The other good news is that I got my first iTunes review from a complete stranger. She gave me 5 stars and said I had great audio quality and was good to listen to. Then a little bit later, I went into facebook and got a “Like” on my fan page, then she added a comment: ”
I’m listening right now! I’m on episode 2….I’ve lost 65 pounds and have been backsliding a bit lately, I’ve gained 4 of those lost pounds. I’m getting back on track and its fun listening to you and especially encouraging!”
How could I not be excited about all of this happening in 1 day?
Finally, to top it off, before I launched episode 4 of my podcast, I was logged into wordpress and low and behold, I had 63 visits to my website today!! Wow, that is 35 views more than my highest day so far since I launched my site!!
To someone who has been a blogger for years, they may have forgotten what it’s like to be a newbie on the internet and to experience these firsts. I’m so excited and I can’t wait to share my blessings with everyone today.
