Gluten Dude Turns Five!!

Gluten Dude Turns Five!!

Dang man…my blog is officially five years old. Five years old and 12 days to be exact. You might say it’s my blogiversary. Or my Gluten Dudiversary. Or my…ok, I’ll stop.

Seriously…where does the time go? It seems like just yesterday my blog was wearing diapers. And now here we are five years later and my blog is fully potty trained, with still the occasional accident. (You folks are very good at letting me know when I’ve soiled myself.)

Five years ago, I wrote my very first blog post called The Bright Side of Having Celiac Disease, according to my kids and I was off to the races. The fact that my kids wrote my first blog post tells you that I had no idea what I was doing.

Five years later…and I still have no idea what I’m doing. I will be a work in progress til the day I die.

How about we look at some interesting (perhaps to me only) facts about my site at this juncture:

  • Number of blog posts written: 620 (holy moly)
  • Number of people who have come to my site: 3,125,468
  • Number of pages viewed: 6,308,928
  • Number of comments left: 30,901 (Seriously…thank you!)
  • Top Google search term (besides Gluten Dude): is corona gluten free (no)
  • Popular search terms that hopefully shed some truth: are gluten free cheerios safe (not to my liking), is omission beer gluten free (nope), celiac brain fog (not talked about enough), can i drink coffee with celiac disease (yes), what is it like to have celiac disease (quite the journey)
  • Other interesting search terms people used to find my site: is semen gluten free (Lots of variations on this one. I assume it took them to THIS page), free sex (huh?), I hate gluten free, help me, are gluten allergies bullshit, celiac cheat days (like there’s such a thing), gluten free idiots (yep…that’s me), I pooped my pants

I frequently ask myself how long I can keep this blog going. Have I said all there is to say about our wonderful little disease? Is it worth some of the angst I receive?

The answer is…I don’t know. I’m at a point where I simply cannot keep up with the emails and private messages I receive asking for guidance. But I do know that I enjoy being one of many strong voices within our community. And as long as that pleasure continues…I will continue.

I cannot thank you all enough for hanging with me.

Next round is on me.

It’s Time for Some Celiac Rants

Dude note 1: This is my 700th blog post. Crazy how time flies. I started my blog 89 months ago, so I’m averaging 7.865168539325843 blog posts per month. And yes I did that math in my head. I figure each blog post takes me about 3 hours to write, publish and discuss. That’s 2,100 hours. […]
