It’s about a quarter of a million miles to the moon (it’s exactly 221,463 miles if you’re being a dick about it). I remember that number from when I was a kid and people were driving and golfing on our heavenly neighbor all the time, so it was in the news.
Well, over the weekend, we had our quarter-millionth blog hit and we’re blushingly amused by it that. The number made me think of the moon, so there’s your metaphor – if miles = blog hits.
I’m not foolish enough to think it means we’ve had a quarter million readers. I’m aware it’s a few thousand who’ve come back a couple of times, and a few thousand more who had enough after one visit…and it took months and months of that sort of traffic to build the number- but it’s still a fun milestone to pass, especially when one considers I’ve fruitlessly wasted that many man-hours of other people’s potential productivity with my frothy bon-mots. I’m just doing my part to slow the economy and contribute to the complete breakdown of our system.
Milestones matter. It’s like suddenly realizing you’ve had your tenth child, or spent your twenty-fifth year behind bars. I’ll never forget those days either.
Ty the Guy OUT!
