For those of you who have been reading my words over this last year; you know on occasion I like to share my blog stats.  By blog stats, I mean how many readers have actually been visiting my blog and also where they are from.  I find these stats simply fascinating.  Fascinating that people in countries all over the world have read my words.  In no other forum, could I ever dream to reach so many people.  As previously stats are addicting! 
When I first started writing, I would check the stats almost hourly.  I was simply amazed, flattered (and a little freaked out) that people were reading what I was sharing.  My very first blog post was on June 9, 2012.  I can still remember my feelings as I created my Marital Status: W web page, wrote my first post and nervously pushed the Publish button.  And here I still am.  Perhaps driving some crazy with my endless writing; but as I have always touted...better out than in! 

To date, Marital Status: W is still leading with reader stats; even though statistically I have contributed more posts to Butter Girl.  Interesting too, is that sharing my story for Marital Status: W was effortless.  The words seemed to simply pour out onto this keyboard.  In contrast, many contributions to Butter Girl require research, recipe development, thought and time.

Even during those quiet times when I have been busy and perhaps not writing as much...people are still reading.  Even more amazing, is the fact that I haven't contributed to Marital Status: W since March of this year and people are still reading.  It is a story that was bravely shared and much to my hearts delight; people are still clicking on my web address to read.  In some silly sort of way, it is my way to memorialize a brave man who wanted nothing more than to be here with us.  Maybe some day I will fulfill the dream of making it into a book...never doubt the possibility, because I'm that silly girl who thinks that anything is possible!

I'm OK with Marital Status: W always being on top of the reader polls.  Honestly, I hope my Butter Girl never surpasses what I call...the mother blog; where I began.   This competition isn't about winning.  It is simply about sharing what is in my heart and the hope that others will enjoy and benefit from what I am sharing.
Here is the cool part.  12,000 readers in 28 different countries have clicked on my website and read my thoughts; readers from places that I will never physically visit...but to have the honor of visiting through my writing, is well...more than I could ever have imagined.  Here is the list, which continues to grow daily:
United States 
South Korea
United Kingdom


  1. Stats are so interesting.

    And when you write a book I call first dibs :)

    I love reading your posts, every one! Sorry I haven't been around much I read most of your articles in the River Current before here :)

Supplement Store Grand Opening!

      SUPPLEMENT STORE GRAND OPENING   Well here it is....finally!  I have aspired for the longest time to make an addition to my website where you can order quality supplements.  REAL supplements vs. the pretend ones you pick up and throw in your shopping carts along with your toilet paper, light bulbs and frozen green beans at Wallie World! As a Certified Nutrition Therapy Practitioner, I am super excited to be able to offer these quality products to you.    Why do I want to make Biotics products available to YOU ?  Because they are REAL my friends, and to state it simply and honestly...they will make you feel great!  These superior products are all natural, organic, plant and animal based.   If you want to run like the wind from 6 a.m. until 11:30 p.m. every day like me...I suggest you give them a try!          More nitty gritty on these fabulous products:   Biotics Research Corporation has been a leading manufacturer of specially designed nutritional p

Pumpkin Doughnut Pleasure

Written for The River Current Publication      I think I have said this before, but I just have to say it again…I love all things pumpkin!   If one doesn’t share my love of pumpkin around this time of year, I suppose it could be a difficult thing.    All that one could do I suppose, would be to sit back and wait for the pumpkin madness to subside!   As we have slipped into the magnificence of a Mid-Western fall season, you will find in my kitchen simmering pots of pumpkin chili, pumpkin breads, pumpkin pies, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin coffees…well, I think you get the pumpkin picture!     For the last couple of weeks I have been craving a good pumpkin doughnut.   I have always been a huge fan of doughnuts, but in my quest for eating healthier, doughnuts are now a ‘once in a blue moon’ kind of treat for me.         I decided to try my luck at baking my doughnuts, rather than the typical fried version…making them a much healthier option.   What can I say…p


I have been inspired to create this blog, as a sort of 'branch' to my original blog... Marital Status: W .  I don't want others to think that my life is all about grief and sadness...I am forging forward with this new passion my Rick lovingly shared with and wellness.  I am exploring options and opportunities that will enable me to share my previous love affair with food in a more nutritious and appealing fashion.  I am still an avid foodie, I am just a foodie in transition. I was a little surprised when my post entitled, Butter Girl Goes Organic had more views than many of my other posts.  When I shared this with my vibrant hairdresser; she replied, "Well yeah, people probably think it is something kinky!"  Really??  Call me naive, but that never crossed my mind and honestly, I don't like to think of what that could even possibly mean!  Oh well, I like to pretend it is because others have an interest like mine...creating lifestyle changes a
