Hello everyone!  Thanks for checking in!  In a little under one month, we will be celebrating the 1st anniversary of My Dreams of Disney!  When I told Cindy that I was starting a Disney blog, I told her that it was because I wanted to document all of the memories I have from our trips to Disney World, both with Cindy and Sophie and also when I was younger going with my Grandparents, Mom, and Sister!

As time has progressed, though, My Dreams of Disney has expanded so much faster than I ever imagined it to!  It started when I saw a post on Chip and Company from Chip about how they were looking for more writers.  I shot Chip an email, told him about my blog, and told him that I was interested in writing for them.  Next thing I knew, it was Thanksgiving week, 2010, and I was writing for Chip and Co!

Then I started hearing about a group of blogs that wrote a monthly “blog hop” called The Magical Blogorail.  To be honest, I don’t even remember the first time I saw it, or even how I got over there, probably I had a comment from my friend Beth, and when I linked to her blogger profile, I saw her blog and went from there.  But anyway, I started reading these and determined right then and there that I needed to be part of this if they would have me!  Beth, being the great person that she is, added me to the second loop — the Red loop — and the rest is history!

When I first started blogging about Disney, my page views weren’t that great, just a couple hundred.  But as soon as I started writing articles on Chip and Company, and followed that up with the Magical Blogorail, my visitors and page views have taken off!  In May I had my busiest month in terms of page views to date, with 2,222 page views being had on my site, and last month, I had the most visitors come to my site, with 801 visitors!

Thank you all for following My Dreams of Disney over the past 11 months!  As the month goes on, look for more details about the 1st Anniversary contest that I’m going to be having, with the winner announced during the One Year Anniversary of My Dreams of Disney Facebook Party!
