'Livin' La Vida Low-Carb' Blog Exceeds Traffic Milestone: 1 Million Pageviews!
"Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" is now a 1 million pageview blog
It took one year, 10 months, one week, and five days for it to happen...but now it's here. Today at my "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" blog, I registered pageview #1,000,000 and counting. ONE MILLION PAGEVIEWS! Holy cow, that's a bunch of people!
What is most gratifying about this traffic milestone are all the hundreds of thousands of people who have been exposed to the positive message of hope, education, and inspiration on a daily basis that I attempt to share. It's not always easy in a world that would rather tear you down for supporting the low-carb lifestyle, but nothing worth accomplishing happens without a few bumps along the way.
The neat thing about exceeding a million pageviews to me is that the second million could very well happen by the end of 2007. While the media continues to bang the drumbeat that low-carb is a dead, passing fad, the number of people who are still flocking to this way of eating is still going strong.
Whenever I tell people how I lost my weight (on the Atkins diet), most of them respond with, "Oh, I thought that diet stopped working." Say what? The "diet" never stopped working for people...it was the people who stopped doing the Atkins diet and then erroneously said it failed them. Well duh!
I receive hundreds of e-mails a week from people asking questions and providing comments about their experiences on the low-carb lifestyle. Their constant enthusiasm and curiosity about livin' la vida low-carb motivate me to continue the work I am doing to encourage others and spread the knowledge through my blogs, web sites and podcast show. It's what I am supposed to be doing at this point in my life and I cherish it!
Most amazing about this 1 million pageviews milestone is the fact that I started it in April 2005 when the media and the anti-Atkins crowd were revved up ready to malign and destroy this outstanding dietary approach that has helped millions lose weight and get healthy.
I for one was disappointed to see all the people who used to support Atkins/low-carb scatter and hide. That's why I stepped forward to defend as a success story this lifechanging diet plan. If nobody else was gonna do it, then Jimmy Moore certainly will.
Now, here we are in 2007, STILL sharing the truth unabashedly, defending the honor of the late great Dr. Robert C. Atkins, heralding the research and other scientific evidence that this nutritional approach has on weight and health, and constantly seeking to shift the conversation and debate in a direction that is inclusive, not exclusive of livin' la vida low-carb. We're making a difference and I'm happy to be a part of it.
