Today I reached a milestone that makes me feel warm and fuzzy.
The day didn’t start out quite so warm. In fact, just the opposite:
But now I have a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. Coffee and oatmeal helped, but really it was the number that did it.
“I have 3,999 blog followers!” I told John last night, excitedly.
As in all things blog-related, he just looked back at me and politely held back the “so what” he was thinking. (Can I see a show of hands of folks whose significant other has zero, zip, nada interest in all the wonders of blogging?)
For a non-stats watcher, well, I was watching this one. It was kind of like New Year’s Eve, when I just have to watch the countdown. And I have to do it aloud.
So this morning, while I was reading blogs I got my 4,000th follower!
There I was, commenting on Felix the Cat and I saw the orange star light up! And heeeeeerrrrreeee he is — my 4,00th follower:
Snakes in the Grass
A Blog of Retirement and Related Thoughts
He blogs about retirement, technology and his new life in Florida. He’s a new blogger — I am his 33rd follower! And that’s a nice number, too. Go check him out.
Thank you all for reading my stupidly named blog, for commenting, for “liking” and even for arguing. Thank you for writing the crazy, varied, dramatic, thoughtful, sarcastic, mind-blowing pieces you guys post. Blogging is a blast, and I really treasure the very real relationships we have developed here in the tubes.
Do I hear 5,000?
