Fifty Thousand and One

I just logged on to The Missing Pieces (Everything through Edward’s Eyes) after two weeks of vacation and found that 50,001 views have been registered on the website. Though I wasn’t shooting for any particular goal, this seems like a rather big milestone.ย  I thank you all for joining me on this Edwardian Odyssey.

The website has been translated by readers into Czech, Hungarian, Arabic, Serbian, and Portuguese, and read in English in such far-reaching places as South Africa, the Philippines, Greece, Sweden, Denmark, England, Egypt, Germany, United Arab Emirates, Canada, India, and of course, the USA. I know of these origins because you have either contacted me directly or have commented on the website and I happened to look up what country you are from. There must be readers from many other places who are silently reading the siteย  in English.

Noting that, I apologize to all of you for whom English is a second or third language because I use a lot of colloquialisms and make quite a number of references to American-specific slang and history. I know that such things often don’t translate well and I hope that the meanings still get through. If you are unclear about a reference or a translation, don’t hesitate to ask.

Somewhere around 40,000 or 45,000 views, I happened to look at the website from a reader’s perspective (rather than as administrator) and discovered an ad for Tivo at the bottom of a post, quite to my surprise. Apparently, it is not within my scope of influence to allow or disallow ads on the website. It would appear that WordPress inserts its own code for “Adsense” when sites reach a certain number of views. So…if you too are seeing ads, I assure you that I do not make any money from such nor do I prefer that they be there. However, the fact that ads are showing up is an indicator of how many people are reading Twilight: The Missing Pieces… so to me, that is a good thing.

Here I would again like to publicly thank Ms. Stephenie Meyer for having given so many people so much pleasure in creating her Twilight Saga. She has kept me very well entertained for over a year and given me incentive to work on my writing skills daily. I am grateful.

And with all that said, I shall proceed. I hope that you continue to enjoy the stories through Edward’s eyes.
