The numbers in the image here are from the Google Analytics profile for this website this evening (August 20th), for stats from August 21, 2018 through August 20, 2019 – exactly one year. In this past 12 months this site has had 2,780,310 unique page views by 1,500,688 unique visitors.
I am sharing this today because:
1) I am totally depressed about the state of the country, and the world [and my own life] at the moment – and I am trying to cheer myself up (like – “Hey, look how far this message is spreading, in spite of all the distracting chaos; my efforts are making a difference!”) and…
2)… because…. WHAAA! 1.5 Million USERS! In just ONE year!?! That’s amazing! #TheLittleLeadWebsiteThatCould
Hopefully, a potential sponsor of this work will take note and will want to jump on board to help with the next steps (my film, book, Lead-free kitchen product development, etc.) so I can keep doing what I do (while, ideally, also feeding my family!)
Wish me luck.
I’d hate to see all of what I have built in the past three years [nearly exactly three years since the dystopian novel I have been living kicked into high gear in August of 2016] crumble, especially at such a critical juncture. This work (with the help of 1.5 million readers around the globe) is really ready to take off – and make an even bigger difference – and Lead Safe Mama, LLC just needs a boost to make that happen. [Examples: I just – tonight – found the perfect office for Lead Safe Mama HQ – a short walk/bike-ride from my home(!), but don’t have the funds to make it happen — about $600 a month/ $7,200 for the year — it’s on my wish list in case an angel is reading :-); I urgently need to cover a payment to the accountant for the business – $4,000+ (one of the two accountants who helped with the legal case to date); I have to cover recent costs for website development, registration and hosting fees ($500+); I have to cover some recent personal loans for help with legal fees ($10,000+) – and more…]
While the many legal battles have been fought and won in these past three years, the “war” is not yet over – and “the troops” need continued support in this home stretch (sorry fo the mixed metaphor – it’s late!). Hopefully, hubs will edit and correct with something better! [Ed. – nope; you’re on your own with that one, darling! lol 😉] A legal victory against the bad actors (with restitution for the damage caused) is possibly as far out as two years away — the time it will take for our case [suing the State of Oregon in Federal court for the multiple civil rights violations against me during this time] to wind through the court system — and I need to stay on track and keep going until that happens.
Thanks for being here.
Thanks for reading and sharing my post (yes I say that with every post, but I truly mean it!)
I hope you are surviving the “Back To School” and “Let’s get ready for Halloween and Thanksgiving” crunch!
More than one million five hundred thousand (1,500,000) folks have read LeadSafeMama.com in the past 12 months!
