Well, whaddya know. At some point over the last couple of days, sometime when my back was turned, this blog welcomed its 9 millionth view. Thanks for coming! 9 million is actually quite conservative since it doesn’t count the first year (or so) of this blog which started on blogger – until their spambots erroneously shut me down (December 11, 2007) – and then kept me hanging on for days until I finally got fed up and made the move here, to wordpress.com, on December 15, 2007. Just prior to my departure, this blog celebrated its 750 000th visit (December 4, 2007) so, really, we’re closer to 10 million.
10 million! I can’t help but think that if I had the foresight to charge $100 admission at the time, today I would have been able to personally bankroll SG-1’s 11th season, Atlantis’s 6th, and Universe’s 3rd – AND have enough money left over for pie and ice cream.
Anyway, it’s been a great ride. Thanks to everyone who has joined along the way, but an especially big thank you to those who have been with this blog from the very beginning Michelle, you hold the distinction of being the oldest poster still commenting today. And, by “old”, I only refer to blog age.
AND an especially big thanks to the folks at WordPress who made the move here quite easy and continue to provide us with a terrific home and support system for this blog.
To celebrate, I’ve grabbed some totally random pics from my 6+ years of blogging and repost them here for your enjoyment/bewilderment:
