Female “cheese cooler” stalker article has received 57,000 hits!
You go figure! I do months of research and then over a week on state of the art architectural graphics . . . the article gets a few hundred readers. A few months ago, I quickly wrote a short article about a humorous experience at the local Walmart. The article went platinum.
A lovely lass from the Georgia Mountains followed me around our local Walmart then cornered me at the cheese cooler to ask a question about genetics! She grew up thinking she was a Cherokee Princess, but after getting back her DNA test, found out that she is a Sephardic Princess.
There was drama two days after the article was published. A local Cherokee tribe mailed me a certified letter (and delivered in person in a very threatening manner) a letter from a lawyer stating that if I mentioned their tribe in the article, they would sue me. I had never heard of them until they threatened to sue me. If they had been nice and asked me to mention their tribe, they would have gotten at least 57,000 free advertisements. LOL
There is a sad ending to this story. The born again Sephardic Princess was not wearing a ring, and didn’t seem to mind that I was poor, mixed-heritage trash . . . but I have never seen her again. Each day, from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM, I stand silently . . . plaintively . . . by the Walmart cheese cooler, eating my cherry turnovers from the Walmart bakery and looking out into the distant aisles . . . but alas, she never appears. It is like a 21st century version of Dr. Zhivago.

Today marks the tenth anniversary of the first People of One Fire newsletter. It initially went out to 18 people as an email. For three years we just had email newsletters then Judy White created a website for us, where old newsletters could be stored and accessed. Our readership outgrew the old website, so we decided to shoot for the big time with the new one.
The current fancy website has been in operation since September 2014. In 2016, we have had as many as 17,000+ readers a day and 77,000+ readers a month. Those sorts of numbers are going to have an impact on “things!”
