4 year “blogiversary” and birthday celebration – with a giveaway!

Time sure flies! Time sure flies!

It’s been 4 years now since I started blogging here at The Daily Awe. 4 years! 

It started off as a way to satiate my desire to write and talk about my journey on a path to self-healing, discovery and intuitive development. I look back at some of my first articles and cringe. I’m happy to say I’ve matured some (I’m 34 today!) and I like to think my writing has a improved a little, too.

Creating, writing and keeping up with The Daily Awe has helped me live out my life purpose, beyond my wildest dreams. It has given me the outlet and the opportunity to connect with thousands of people around the world. Do hundreds of intuitive readings. Make deep, life-long friendships both in person and online. Meet soul mates and past life karmic buddies.

Admittedly, The Daily Awe has taken a bit of a backseat to my life as a mom to my little girl, Evelyn. I figure she’s only little for a short period of time – if that’s all-consuming for now, that’s okay. I’ve also got the day job competing for my time and energy. I am still doing readings on evenings and weekends – it’s something I hope to never give up on. The shape this space on the web is shifting, but giving it up entirely would be like giving away a big part of my heart and soul for no good reason. I plan to stick around here for a long while, even if things change a little. Isn’t that life, after all?

The Daily Awe helps me reach a large audience while still making a genuine heart connection with every single soul who comments or gets a reading or emails me. I haven’t a clue where my life would be without this website, or the people who read it. And I’m glad I don’t have to find out. This blog helped me save myself from a downward spiral. And now it has lifted me up into places I never anticipated I could reach.

Here’s a numbers breakdown of how this site has grown over the past 4 years. When I first started, I could count the number of readers on one hand (hi mom!). To say I am humbled and awed by the growth is an understatement.

  • 743,619: views all-time
  • 1,500: average number of views/day
  • 1,348: email subscribers
  • 1,436: Facebook fans
  • 228: articles written and published And here’s the one I’m most proud of: Approximately 1,500 intuitive readings done for people all over the world in the past 3 years. I didn’t start keeping track until about 2 years ago, so that’s just an estimation.

The top 3 articles that bring the most people to the blog are:

Signs You’ve Met Your Soulmate

Spiritual Significance of Dimes

5 Common Questions About Spirit Guides

A couple of my favorites: 

The Grandfather and the Great Blue Heron  – One of my favorite stories of synchronicity.

The Universe Goes out of Its Way to Get Your Attention – I really do love me a good synchronicity story.

As a ‘thank you’ for sharing this journey with me, I’m offering a 25% discount on all intuitive readings for the remainder of July. Just enter the code “2BIRTHDAYS” when you check out and voila – savings!

I’m also giving away a free (new) copy of the book that changed my life all those years ago when I found it in a Goodwill:  “Remembering the Future” by Colette Baron Reid. There are a few ways to enter – do one or do ’em all! Maybe it’ll change your life the way it did mine.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Last, but not least – join me on Facebook today for a special Facebook followers giveaway! The only requirement is you ‘like’ the page and join in on the conversation when I launch the contest.

Thank you all – so very much – for everything. For reading, emailing me, talking with me on Facebook, following along and encouraging me. I am a better person with a more enriched life because of you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I don’t really know what I would like to see more of on your blog. All I know is that whenever I get your emails I always seem to open them up right when I need to – the email will resonate with me in one way or another or on other days it is simply what I needed to read at the moment to give me a little ‘pick me up’. Thank You for all your wonderful insight…….

This design is incredible! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you
presented it. Too cool!
