An Unusual Blogging Milestone

“You’ve received 1,337 likes on Kristen Dutkiewicz.”

When checking my blog this morning for any missed comments and likes, I noticed a unique milestone load in my notifications. I had officially received 1,337 likes.

Not too long ago, I received the 1,000 likes, and you can check out that blog post by clicking HERE. In it, I highlight the books I had written and published up through that date, and since I have actually published TWO more!

But what is up with the random numbers? Is it a joke? A mistake? An error?

No. It’s legit!

The Meaning Behind 1337

For 1337, the secret meaning is behind the numbers. Each one represents a letter.

1 – L

3 – E

3 – E

7 – T


But what the heck is LEET?

It basically has two meanings, according to my research. (Honestly before looking it up, I had no idea!)

First, Leet is short for Elite, or the best, meaning you are the best at something.

In addition to the term elite, Leet is also a type of programming knowledge. I am nowhere near a coding expert or software engineer, so I’ll leave it there!

But there you have it! There IS a reason why WordPress is acknowledging when we reach 1337 likes!

As always, thank you to my readers and my followers. Be sure to stick around for more on my journey with multiple sclerosis along with select book reviews and excerpts from my personal works!

Interested in my latest novella? Head over to Amazon to read more about The Westworth Women!

The Westworth Women by Kristen Dutkiewicz is available now and FREE with Kindle Unlimited!

I am an author, recently releasing over ten short-reads/novellas on Amazon, including my short read memoir about my journey with multiple sclerosis. I am also published with Amazon's episodic reading platform, Kindle Vella! I live in a suburb of Philadelphia with my husband and two cats. When I am not writing, you can find me either exercising or reading!

  1. Yep, I grew up with this number during the dial-up days, so I am certainly feeling nostalgic every time I see it. Super surprised to even see that WordPress had such a milestone. Which reminds me, congrats on reaching your new milestone!
