You only have yourself to blame...a milestone and a little giveaway



It happened late last night or early this morning, depending on your perspective.  I knew the time was close at hand.



The blog went over 100,000 hits.  It's a drop in the bucket compared to 30 Year Old Cardboard who just hit 500,000 (and is having a contest to celebrate), but I never expected to be around long enough or have enough readers to hit 100K. 

When I started this blog on October 1, 2009, I was obsessed with hits and followers, two numbers that I still pay attention too, but don't obsess over.  I'm still thankful to have almost 200 followers and to hit a milestone like this means a lot and I can only say thank you to everyone who has ever clicked on one of my posts. 

Well, I can say thank you and have a little impromptu giveaway.  Leave a comment on this post and I'll randomize a winner and send them something to celebrate this milestone.

Thank you everyone!

  6. Congrats! I recently hit 50,000 page views, but then I realized about 47,000 of them were from me, so it wasn't that great of an accomplishment. Here's to the next 100K!

    If you want more hits, put the word 'cardboard' in your post titles. The search bots go there and your hit totals go wild.

  30. Crap, I have to get caught up on my reading. Always too late for contests.

    Congrats on the milestone. I used to be big time obsessed with my stats too, but I've learned to try not to care about it. I admit, I do still check, I just don't put much faith in them.
