Days to Go: 3
Estimate: Currently: 5,039,627
Dear Readers, remember when your first car rolled from 99,000 to 100,000 miles?
This week, I'm hoping that you'll help push us over the edge in reaching a HUGE milestone - 5,000,000 monthly readers. Right now we're estimating 5,028,212 by Sunday, but to get there it will take A LOT of new traffic to break the 5M mark. Help us.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. This week I'd like to see if we can add a little turbo charge to our monthly finish.
To do this deed, I want to ask all of you to 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 six friends, and thanks so much for being one of our readers. :-)
Founder, Apartment Therapy
PS. I'll keep track of the numbers and let you know from now till next Monday, when we may be sportin' the hat for your lunchtime pleasure.
