The One Thousandth Post

So according to Blogger, this will be my one thousandth (1,000) post on this blog. Better not waste it.

Gee, guess I better say something.

I wanted to make this post all about the benchmarks this blog has had, the most popular post (still Morgan Smith Goodwin. I wonder what she’s doing lately — I don’t think she’s doing Wendy’s commercials anymore.), first breakout post (Shadow of the Colossus: Quit Crying or Top Five Movies That Need to Be Remade, depending on what you consider “breakout”), first post with more than 10,000 views (Supergirl More Interesting Than Superman), post with most comments (Morgan Smith Goodwin again), post with longest title (Left 4 Dead, 2 Rabbits, 9 Badminton Nets, 2 Plungers, 4 Dinosaur Scales, 12 Claw-Gripper Things, and a Chia Pet longest post (I don’t know, Blogger doesn’t display word counts).

Over its lifetime, the blog still hasn’t broken a million pageviews (it’s at 750,000, with 587,000 unique). That’s total, not per day. This post coincides with the 10 year anniversary (Feb 12, 2007), so at least it means I haven’t given up. People mostly come here from searches, not referring sites. And that’s probably image searching mostly.

But honestly, I don’t care. I never write this blog for other people. I write it for myself. To keep myself honest, and keep myself writing. On days I feel like I can’t write because I’m too concerned about audience, if they get it, if they like it, I can come here and word vomit about whatever I damn well please. Whether it’s Disney villains, video games, hot ‘n smart girls, video games, or Link x Malon porno.

One thousand posts and the tale continues…
