I am absolutely floored by the response of so many of you as well as the sheer number of hits on my blog since the video on Mormon.org came out in July. Thank you for all of your kind emails and comments! I hardly know how to take it in.
What has been the most surreal are the number of unexpected random hits on my blog from all over the world, according to my blog stats, which all of a sudden went from a handful to the thousands. Um... I keep saying, "Is this really happening to me?" From the US to Canada, to China to Brazil, from Germany to UK, from Ireland to Thailand, from New Zealand to India, from Sweden to the Philippines, from Slovakia to Armenia, from Turkey to yes, my first hit in Kenya this evening! (Of course the stats do not tell you if someone stumbles upon you by accident.)
Who would have thought this obscure little painter in Ashburn, Virginia would have a readership in Kenya or Slovakia, or Armenia? Whoa, I am, um... kind of speechless....
From the bottom of my heart, I thank all of you for your interest. And I do hope I am keeping you interested... but I am kind of new to having an identifiable audience of any kind. This kind of raises the bar for me to do a better job at updating my blog. I am overwhelmed by requests for prints of my work and am working feverishly to make them available on my website THIS WEEK at the Art of Rose Datoc Dall. So stay tuned!
For those of you who have not checked it out, the video is at Rose Datoc Dall on Mormon.org or at Rose Datoc Dall on Youtube.
