Tonight I’d like to take a moment to thank all the people who stop by to read this blog and to acknowledge a few people who I don’t know and I’ve never met.
How strange is that?
I use a device called “StatCounter” to provide me with some statistics on my blog. It’s a clever piece of code and it provides me with a wealth of interesting information. It would be easy to get hooked on StatCounter, and maybe I am.
Earlier this year I thought StatCounter had gone beserk when my page hit number jumped by 6,000 in one day.
The Day of the Dooce.
Google “dooced” if you’re interested in that story and check out the Urban Dictionary, definition 3.
StatCounter also provides a little information about visitors, mainly through the ISP’s they use to access the Internet.
Although I’ll undoubtedly miss some people using today’s data only, I’d like to thank some of the people who visit this site regularly and I’m just going to acknowledge those StatCounter entries that show over a hundred visits. It boggles my mind, but here goes.
Thank you Atlanta and Billings and Little Rock and Ontario, Canada and New Rochelle and Anaheim and York, Pa, and Beaverton, Or, and a special thanks to Soddy Daisy, Tennessee just because I think the name is so cool.
Speaking of cool, I have documented readers from every continent on the planet including Antarctica. Here’s to you, Genevieve, doing your job on the end of the planet in conditions that would break most of us.
Thanks to all of you. You are my inspiration.
Tomorrow, an announcement and an opportunity. Get your calendars ready. Pencils ready to reserve a special date. If you can guess what I’ve got planned, well, there is no prize, just the satisfaction of being a good guesser. Sorry.
Anyway, until tomorrow.
