Approaching milestone

At this moment, Site Meter tells me that this blog has had 499,421 visitors since November 11, 2004. If the weekend goes like last weekend, we should pass the half-million mark sometime Sunday.

If you're the 500,000th visitor... well, I'll have no way of knowing. I'm not that tech-savvy on the stats.

But you'll (obviously) have been one of the 500,000. Thanks. If it weren't for you, I'd likely still natter on, but it wouldn't be nearly so fun nor so personally rewarding.

Please, don't be a quitter after you reach 500,000 and please don't do a group blog. I hate change.

What? You don't like your blogs to be a Super Walmart?

I heard that Kayne West is preparing his interruption speech for this momentous occassion.

LOL

I heard that all blogs with less than 500,000 visitors fly effortlessly under the scrutinizing radar of the present administration.

Better prepare for scrutiny....you never know who the next drive-by troll might be reporting to!

Congrats! Thanks for all the good posts, and keep it up!

Frank offered fabulous prizes for his 500Kth hit.

Just sayin'.

I don't like Walmart at all. The inside always looks like a bunch of lazy, slovenly people walked through there with their spoiled undisciplined children. So, no, I don't want you blog to be like that.

Wow -- congratulations.

Thanks for all your efforts. This site is a real blessing!

Rachael's openly subliminal suggestion doesn't sound half bad--how about it? ;)

Michelle said...

This blog has been a blessing to me too. It encourages, entertains, informs, challenges, makes me laugh (and sometimes makes me want to weep). Sometimes all simultaneously. Thank you. I appreciate it very much.

(And now I am at 499,848. I'm beginning to feel like them listeners who press "redial" like mad because the radio program they're listening to is offering fabulous "anywhere in the world" vacation prizes to the nth caller, etc.

A trip to London or Paris would be nice. Hint hint??) ;)

are we there yet??

CR said...

Well, I was the 500,408 visitor. If you add up the digits in 500,408 it adds to be a prime number. I think that deserves some kind of recognition and prize.
