On Wednesday Raptitude surpassed one million unique visitors. Thank you for supporting me.
And yesterday was the final day of my twenties. What a trip it was.
I love you all.

Congratulations on both milestones!
Congratulations on the first, buddy. Keep up the great work!
As for the second, well, condolences? (No, don’t let’s be morbid, what I mean is very hearty congratulations.) No, seriously, very hearty condolences. But keep the second up as well!
Hi David .. many congratulations on both .. wonderful times you’re having .. long long may it last and the success .. happiness is – just is .. Hilary
Happy birthday and HUGE congratulations – you have helped me so much over these past few months David, thank you. I hope you know that being 30 and beyond is just awesome xx
And it gets better. Yeah, life is full of ups and downs, but the depth and richness of emotion and thought you gain as you acquire more and more years is really interesting, especially if you have intellectual curiosity. You’ve got that in spades.
Happy birthday, David.
Happy birthday, David, and thank you for all the good reads.
Congratulations David and Happy Birthday..
Toast to the last million unique visitors and another million to come!
When I turned 30 the prevailing culture was that you could not trust any one over 30. Talk about an internal conflict!
Here is a verse from Grace Slick’s (Jefferson Airplane) song to the drummer, Lather, when he turned 30:
Lather was thirty years old today,
They took away all of his toys.
His mother sent newspaper clippings to him,
About his old friends who’d stopped being boys.
I think a piece of us needs to remain a boy, regardless of our age.
Congratulations and happy birthday!
One Million! That is a milestone . . .
Thirty? Just a drop in the bucket list of life. 8)
Congratulations David. That is truly a milestone. You’re an inspiration to be doing this as you end your 20’s .
God bless and every success to u in the future.
Ah David at Thirty….. That first birthday that is the real advent of mature thought and personal examination. The discovery of the mortality clock in real terms, and the accompanying minute at first, physical notices of aging. The speeding up of the passing seconds and minutes and hours and days and weeks and life, begins for real and the indisputable presence of that constant feeling of the approach of your own inevitable destiny! It is both a joyful and frightening journey and I wish you a fullness of experience as you progress. My congratulations on the successes of your life to date and all the best for the future. James
Oh, happy belated! And congratulations on the 1 mil milestone. Where do you plan on taking this beast moving forward?
I wish I had contemplated at least ONE of the many things you have mulled over before I turned 30…Congratulations for THAT!
Two birthdays then…congratulations on one million visitors…and entering your 30’s..may both your 30’s and your blog allow you to continue to open your heart and your senses to the world and all in it..
Thanks so much everyone. This has been the best eighteen months of my life so far. Much more to come.
Nice work, David! Raptitude is one of the best blogs around (:
30s are the new 20s, also. Or possibly the new teenage years… ;)
Congrats and happy birthday; I’m looking forward to more articles in the years to come. :)
Congrats on one million and happy birthday. I always look forward to reading Raptitude when I see a new post pop into my RSS reader.
Heh.. we’re already on 1,016,051
not many poeple can claim to have inspired more than a million other people at the age of thirty already.
Concerning your goal of being self-employed: It probably does not take much to turn a website with 1M unique visitors into a profit generating business. Just use your courage and go for it right now!

Very interesting recognition David. It is very similar what you wrote in "What You Want Is Never A Thing" many years ago. That was the first post of yours I read around two and a half years ago :)
People love fishing not realizing that it is not fish they hope to catch.
Glad to see that you're back! :)
Isn't it funny that Buddhism's great desire is to be free of all desire? (Nirvana.) Isn't that great desire also a problematic desire? And, no one can be free of the desire to eat and still stay alive, so...
Also just remembered another book called "How to Read Literature Like a Professor," where the author gives his own take on the hero's journey/structure. One of the earlier steps delineated is "the hero's stated reason for going" (i.e. their explicit purpose). So, usually, it's that far off thing...
