This Blog Has a Big Increase in Readership - Over 7,000 Unique Page Views in Past 3 Days



This blog has seen a big increase in readership this month. Over this weekend, from Friday - Sunday, we had over 7,000 unique page views (each reader is counted once even if they look at multiple pages in one visit).



The total number of pageviews  this blog has, according to Google, over the past four years is over 1,267,000. Readership for our first year was not counted by Google. The actual total is closer to 1,350,000. I am not going to report total readership until we hit our second million, which may be sooner than I think if the current readership bump continues. I think Benja is helping me by posting my posts to his huge number of G+ friends who check his blog out.  Whatever the case, I think the number of readers we have is what keeps me going here - so thanks again for your support!

Gorgeous Second Life Destinations: Yosemite Inspired Sim

View of Half Dome Mountain at Second Life Yosemite 

Yosemite National Park in California is one of the three most famous national parks in the United States, the others being the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone. Yosemite has gorgeous lakes, waterfalls, wildlife, and  mountains, the most famous being Half Dome which you can see in the top photo. I wanted to revisit Second Life Yosemite since it came very close to losing all its trees and wildlife in a huge fire that started in September. Luckily, the fire is now under control.



The Yosemite destination which I photographed last year is no longer standing. However, a magnificent new sim simply called Yosemite Inspired Sim can be visited and is gorgeous. There is a very romantic cabin lodge which you can visit on the sim (which I assume is open to the public). Make sure to wander the grounds to see all the wildlife -- including bears, buffalo, and a wolf pack - looking good in their natural setting.

Highly recommended for a visit.
