Unique Visits (aka Readers) for October: 4,971,056
Dear Readers, remember when your first car rolled from 99,999 to 100,000 miles? Well, we put some heavy mileage on the odometer this month, and we're gearing up to tip the balance into 5 million monthly readers next month.
This is a HUGE milestone for us, and all of you have helped us inch closer to our goal by sharing, tweeting, and Facebooking your favorite Apartment Therapy posts with your friends.
In the six and a half years since I started blogging (queue ancient first post here from 2004) you have been extremely generous in growing as an audience at a rapid rate.
Although we didn't make it to the 5 Million mark this October, you gave us the push we needed to go for the finish line next month. (BTW, this October was a rare 5-weekend month, which in Internet-world means a slight dip in traffic.)
If you'd like to help us reach 5 million in November, please SHARE YOUR FAVORITE APARTMENT THERAPY POST OF ALL TIME with your friends. Here are three different ways you can help:
• Tweet your fave post (#5mil, @AptTherapy)
• Facebook your fave post
• Forward this post and your all-time favorite post on to six folks
My favorite post is here, David & Im's Onespace, a great home discovery from our 2006 Small Cool contest that went on to appear in many magazines and TV shows... until David and Im moved on to greener pastures a few years later.
And to get you thinking, here are the TOP TWO POSTS OF ALL TIME on any of our blogs, with each over a half million page views:
• Top 10: Sleeper Sofas / Sofa Beds
• How To Make Creamy Ice Cream with Just One Ingredient
To excite you further, if and when we cross the line I'm going to document our entire office introducing themselves in our office while wearing our new Mailchimp monkey hat. How can you beat that?

So, please go SHARE with five friends, and thanks so much for being one of our readers. :-)

PS. We'll keep track of the numbers and let you know when we cross the 5-million mark!
