I wish I could adopt some nonchalance about this but the fact of the matter is, every time I scroll down and see the Blog Stats counter inch closer to the 100k visitors mark, my eyes pop out in a way that makes The Mask seem underplayed. Three years and (at present) 91,070 hits — I’ll allow myself an exclamation mark and say, sweet! Ok, so a huge number of those hits are people who have been misdirected by Google into thinking they can find out something about wife swapping parties in Mulund from this blog, but still, who’d have thunk?
Now, obviously, if at this point you ask me where I rank next to the Huffington Post, I’ll have to ignore you while muttering vicious curses under my virtual breath.
I feel I should mark this milestone in some way but I’m drawing a blank about what to do. Any ideas? Change the template? Reveal deep, dark secrets? Have an “I’d like to thank Uncle Oscar” moment? Make a Wikipedia page (which will no doubt be taken off by their gnomes within seconds)? If you have a suggestion of any sort, please take a moment to write a comment. Just don’t ask me to set up a Facebook account.
Edited to remove the shiny new form that seemed like a good idea when I first wrote this post. This just goes to show I really shouldn’t write posts while drinking. There would be some point in doing that if I was an entertaining drunk but 6 gins down, what do I do? I insert an unnecessary form into a post. Wild. That’s me.
