The 2011 WordPress Annual Report indicated that the concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. The Alphabet Soup blog was viewed about 14,000 times in 2011.
If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
Alphabet Soup readers are vibrant, dedicated and diverse (how could they not be? They are the yin to my yang). They are eager to explore new realms, feel more, question life, divulge and indulge. They are movers, shakers, rock stars, artists, chefs, starving students, retired, baristas, insomniacs, teachers, lovers, writers, crusaders, dog lovers, wine drinkers—they are you and they are me.
• Alphabet Soup is most frequently visited by women 25-34 who have no children, received some college education and browse this site from home
• Most visitors are from the US, followed closely by Canada, Australia and 1.75% in Guam!
So, what are Alphabet Soup readers interested in?
Some followers are vicarious travellers, content to read about sleeping with lions and being chased by warthogs from the safety, reliable wi-fi and temperature-regulated comfort of their homes. Others are comrade travelers with parallel pursuits, eager to learn about what surviving a night in the Ice Hotel in Quebec is like. How does camel stew taste, exactly? How can I volunteer and work with chimps in Africa? How and where can I sleep under the stars in the desert? Other readers are along for the ride because it’s always different, always thought-provoking and a gentle kick to live life fuller and bigger.
The posts stretch from Toronto theater and restaurant reviews, commentary on gourmet hot dogs, cooking classes, champagne tasting, recovering from a concussion, book and indie movie reviews, reflections on life in the Costa Rican jungle, how to prep breakfast for 23 chimps, massage therapy and spas, running half marathons, Honduras, Venezuela, Egypt, the Galapagos, Nashville, Banff, East Africa and many other latitudes and longitudes.
What can I do for you?
Need a guest blogger? A product reviewed? I’ll gladly sleep in your tree house hotel, eat your bacon-stuffed waffles, try your whiskey and caribou jerky cocktail, review your book and share it all with my readers.
I can write anything from wedding vows to fortune cookie messages and moving tributes to dogs. Need to re-write a greasy spoon menu, some web content, ad copy or a list of what to pack for a week in a desert oasis? Or for 35 days walking the Camino!
