We're on the verge of something momentous here at the blah blah blog-- the 10,000th page view. As I type this, the counter sits at 9,951. So, unless the site crashes before then, or some other unforseen event occurs, sometime tomorrow, someone will be visitor # 10,000.
Not to discount the importance of the other 9,999, but 10,000 seems very important. It's a round number. And it's big. But mostly, it's a round number -- and thanks to the OCD, I really like round numbers.
Anyway, thanks to everyone who reads my crap. 'Cause it's really about that. I mean, when I started this online journal thing back in February, I really didn't expect to enjoy it as much, or to find the wherewithal to continue. But I found out that I really like the dialogue aspect of it -- the blog as a conversation with the readers -- but mostly among the commenters - -with me as a sort-of moderator.
So thanks. The first 10,000 have been fun. Can't wait to see what the next 10,000 have to say.
Update: Here it is, the 10,000th visitor:
According to Site Meter, the visit came from San Francisco at 8:05 p.m. on September 10, and was referred here by Above the Law.
