It Has Been a CRAZY 8 Days

I took a shower on Thursday, January 21, 2021. A normal, everyday shower. And when I came out of that shower, I glanced over at my phone not expecting to see any type of text/email notification as my shower was only about 15 minutes long.

My phone was legit BLOWING UP with blog notifications. Like…every second it was lighting up. Why??? I was so confused! What was happening??? I looked into my blog’s stats and my mouth instantly dropped open. Literally within a span of 1 shower my blog suddenly had THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of new views???

I still have no idea how it happened but apparently while I was in that shower…

….Google put a link to my Tennessee blog post ON. THEIR. HOMEPAGE.

Whaaaaat?!?

Hell yeah!

So here’s what I know:

As that initial night went on and continued throughout the next day, the numbers on my little blog literally kept climbing BY. THE. SECOND. My husband and I watched as the insanely high number of people visiting my blog climbed and climbed. It was CRAZY and so much fun to watch!

Iโ€™ve never seen anything like that and at this point I still had no idea how all of these new readers found my blog! Readers from allllll over the United States and in countries around the world were suddenly reading Book Coffee Happy! It was baffling (and super cool).

Finally, after receiving SO MANY private messages about that Tennessee blog post, I finally started asking people where they even found my blog. Their answers were all the same…it showed up on their Google homepages! A few kind people sent me screenshots:

I sent this screenshot to my best friend and she replied โ€œTHANK GOD you look cute in the picture that Google chose of you!โ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Turns out to be the most famous selfie Iโ€™ve ever taken, lol.

So here we are, 8 days later, and THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF NEW PEOPLE HAVE VISITED MY BLOG. Iโ€™ve received so many new blog followers/subscribers, new Facebook followers, and new Instagram followers! The amount of visitors to my blog continues to climb and climb each day, each hour, each minute, each SECOND! It has been FUN and definitely a huge highlight of my blogging journey thus far ๐Ÿ™‚

So…itโ€™s probably a good idea to introduce myself since many of you are new clearly around here ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m Jenny! I’m a former teacher and am now a stay at home mom to my 2 young children. I absolutely LOVE being a stay at home mom and it was always my dream to be one. I truly treasure this time in my life! I will always and forever be thankful for my amazing husband for so many things including working so hard so I can stay home with our kids. I have always been an avid reader and I have always loved participating in book discussions! People used to ask me ALL. THE. TIME. for book suggestions and so 2.5 years ago, I decided to start writing this blog. It has morphed into such a creative outlet for me, and I have loved all of the opportunities it has provided! It’s mostly a book blog with bits of my personal life sprinkled in. I review books, lead book discussions, host book giveaways, etc.

Thank you to everyone for your support and love! If you are new here…welcome! The more blog followers I have, the larger our book community can grow! Iโ€™m so glad to have you here. And a special thank you to Google…I have NO CLUE how all of this happened but itโ€™s been such fun! I so hope it will happen again!

If anyone has insight into how this could have happened, SEO (search engine optimization) knowledge, etc. please send me an email (bookcoffeehappy@gmail.com). Iโ€™d love to pick your brain!

Oh and HERE is a link to the (now apparently famous, lol) Tennessee blog post that has now been viewed thousands upon thousands upon thousands of times ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Friday! May your weekend be filled with love and books! I’ll be back here on Monday with a post for you containing 2 book reviews…see you then!

Xo,

Jenny

  1. How awesome and at the same time, insanity! I fell in love with your blog from a post you made on the Smoky Mountain page I follow, which I as well LOVE the Smoky Mountains.

    I love your posts and through them I found new books to read!

    Thank you!

  2. That’s awesome! I’m thrilled for you. It must have been certain key words that triggered the placement on Google. I wrote a blog one time called “The Rental Car” and received thousands of hits. I’m sure the readers were doing research on renting a car and were very disappointed that it was about my crazy experience in San Diego – lol!
