I started this blog on April 7 of this year as a creative outlet and, more importantly, as a way for me to vent. Today the number of hits surpassed 1,000! That averages out to 8 hits per day, which may not sound like much to some of you heavy hitters of blogging but, frankly, I’m amazed. It’s kind of a rush, actually.
I have to mention a few who were responsible for the popularity…
My highest traffic day at 67 hits was on July 27, coincidentally the very same day that The Redneck Princess conferred upon me the honour of being the first named in her feature, Blog of the Week. Thanks for your comments and the cheque that paid for this plug of your blog.
An honourable mention must go to the two bots that go crawling through my blog every single night. If not for your loyalty, which I greatly appreciate, I would have had to wait another six weeks for my purely human readership to have tallied a thousand visits to my blog. You bots are beginning to leave some pretty good comments that WordPress filters out as spam. In respectful thanks for helping getting me to where I am today, I OKed probably the best piece of spam you ever sent to this blog and even left a reply to it.
I offer my readers a new feature in profound yet humble thanks for your reading the bollocks I’ve written over the past few months. It is the exciting new Table of Contents you can find at the top of whatever page or post you happen to be on in my blog. With it you can see a brief synopsis of my blog entries before committing yourself to calling up the actual post. In some cases, the synopses are more interesting, more easily tolerated, and provide as much entertainment and/or useful information as the blog entry to which they refer.
