15,000+ Views!

31 Aug

I am delighted to report that this week, Blogginginitaly.com surpassed 15,000 views! Pretty amazing, especially as it began as a fun way for me to share our travels with family members and a few friends.

To my surprise and delight, its reach has broadened and now includes viewers from over 80 countries.

Many thanks for all your thoughtful comments and encouragement. Writing my blog is an endless learning curriculum for me – one that is filled with never-ending yet truly satisfying homework.

It’s a joy to share my reflections about Italy with others who love it so, and a privilege to share it with those who can only dream of going.

I can think of no better way to say thanks than by sharing some of my very favorite views.

    I never doubted that your blog would be a success and reach not only your family and friends, but also interested travelers with a love for Italy. Remember Judy – you raised the money to build a Catholic School in Austin TX – not a small feat!

    Congratulations!!
