Countdown to 10000...
If normal traffic patterns hold steady today and tomorrow, I should reach the 10000 mark on my hit counter for the main page sometime mid-day on Thursday. Granted, probably 7500 of these hits have been my own when I hit refresh to see if I have any readers since I last checked, but hey! It's still 10000!
I remember when Joe Litton and I started blogging earlier this year. We both started out on Blogspot as a quick way to get going. We then started tweaking our templates to be "different". Of course, Joe would add something and I'd do the same. Then I'd add something and Joe would steal it. The high point of our "R&D" efforts (Rob & Duplicate) was when I added a bCentral hit counter. I was happy to see the first time it rolled past 100. I then went over to Joe's page. Guess who else had added a hit counter? And guess who's hit counter was already up at 1962? When confronted with the deception, he explained that it was totally unacceptable to have a lower hit count than Duffbert, so he set the seed number to be his year of birth... I would have liked to have been mad at him, but I was just ticked that I didn't think of it first!
On the serious side, thank you to all who have helped me get the blog up and going, for all who have left comments and suggestions, and for all who have just dropped by for an occasional visit. It's been a fun ride, and I look forward to continuing to be a part of this blogging community.
