10K

I can't believe I missed it!

I re-enabled my sitemeter icon to display the number of hits I've received because I knew I was creeping closer to it, and I missed it!

Oh well. Suffice it to say that sometime yesterday, this site received its 10,000th hit. I'm kind of excited, in a giddy, stupid schoolgirl kinda way.

Of course, 10,000 is really a rather aribitrary milestone when you consider that the sitemeter was added months after I started the blog itself (although I have no reason to believe I had great blog traffic in the early months anyway), and the fact that for a while my own visits to the site were counted too.

But hey, 10,000!

Thanks for reading. You guys are the best.

I'm gonna go get myself some celebratory cake now.

Félicitations ! But really, we wouldn't read if you didn't write like that.

Thanks for posting!

Congrats! Oh, and when you say cake, you mean porn, right? Thought so.

Steve said...

I get regular site stats, and know I've also reached that milestone. Problem is, I couldn't tell you when it happened. Anyway, congratulations, Dennis! I enjoy your blog.

Cake, porn.... it's all good! :)

[You seem to think I reserve the breaking out of porn for "special" occasions. That would be incorrect.]

I think I was #10,000. I just feel it. Do I win anything?

katie said...

Congrats on 10,000. You deserve it! I'll take some cake too please, though you can keep the porn (I think they would frown on that in my office).

Ill take some cake and porn over here

duane said...

maybe I should get a site counter...

Dennis! said...

Twinkie and Will: Cake, porn and prizes must be claimed in person here in the DC area.

Katie: I was so totally going to say "There's no bad time for porn!" but then I realized that statement is just totally incorrect.

Congratulations, Dennis!

10,000 visits, well-earned.

Just out of curiosity, what does SiteMeter list as your average visits per day?

Dennis! said...

Matt -- right now sitemeter tells me the average is 49/day. That probably includes repeat visitors, of course.

I just had to delete three spam postings here within the past hour. Grrr. Thanks to purpletwinkie, though, I think I've gotten that taken care of. At least I hope so.
