The Lingerie Addict Gets Its 1,000,000th Visitor!!!

At 11:28 p.m. PST on January 16, 2012, something really amazing happened.

The Lingerie Addict officially had it’s 1,000,000th visitor.

I’m sitting here writing this at 1 in the morning, and I can hardly believe it. When I first started blogging in 2008, I never expected to reach 1,000 visitors, much less 1 million. I remember being ecstatic at my 500th visitor, because that was 499 more people than I ever thought would happen.

But 1 million isn’t “just” a number to me. Some of you know that I used to be a crisis counselor. My lingerie blog was a hobby, and I wrote about bras and panties to take my mind off the traumatic things I dealt with during the day. I had no money to put into my blog and I had even fewer connections to help it along.

All that’s to say the only reason this blog is what it is today is because of you. You found my blog. You decided to read it. You chose to share it with your friends. And you are why The Lingerie Addict is the most popular lingerie blog in the world.

So, thank you. Thank you for supporting us even when we weren’t “cool.” Thank you for believing that a consumer’s perspective is an important one for the lingerie industry to hear. Thank you for making our new columnists feel so welcome. And thank you for making us your resource for everything lingerie.

–xoxo, Treacle

      I still get excited every time I check my stats and see 2 people visited! It’s really quite silly, but I can’t help it. There’s no greater gift than when someone gives me their time.
