Setting a new blog record (and an early start on the February Contest)

This is my 66th post of the month. That's the most posts I've ever had in one month. I didn't set out to do that this month, but it's kind of fun. I almost didn't make it with my sick days last week, but fortunately I recovered in time to get some more posts up. I won't go into the quality of those posts as I'm sure the quantity led to a drop in quality.

I plan on doing some fairly extreme organizing over the course of the next week, so I don't think there is much chance of hitting that number in February. The contest for February is going to be a multi-post contest, similar to some I've done in the past. I plan on having 7-10 "contest" posts over the next week. You can choose to comment on as many or few as you want. At the end, I'll randomly pick one comment from each post and that person will be entered into the randomization for the prize. That way I only have to enter 7-10 names in the randomizer instead of 100. I think I'll give away a blaster of 2012 Topps this time. How does that sound? Even you guys that don't want to buy any 2012 wouldn't mind a free blaster right?

Alright, let's get an early start on the entries for the February contest. I not only set a blog record for posts this month, I also set a high for blog hits in a month. Leave your guess in the comments and the closest person will get the first entry in the randomizer for this...make that next month's prize.

Thanks to all of you who are regular, or even sporadic, readers. I do appreciate every one of you.

  7. I got more hits this month than the glory days of 2009.

    I'll say 8678

  8. 9,429 I've got no idea. For my blog I consider any hits over 1 a day a plus for me.

  9. This is Charlie from Lifetimetopps (stupid blogger/wordpress interface issues)

    I'm going with 6,601.

    Great job as always - I got my "hit record" for the month in January as well.

  10. January was an all-time high point for me in my readership, too, for three of my four blogs.

    Extrapolating the per-post numbers (I only had 13 posts in each of may baseball-related blogs, while you had 66) I'll guess 14,750.
