Half A Million Reasons To Read
By Wyatt Earp | April 13, 2009
So, I was working on the blog the other day and I noticed something peculiar. My site meter was up to 496,000 hits.
My first thought was, “Did I leave the oven on?” But my second thought was, “Holy crap, I am fast approaching half a million hits!”
It my hit trends continue, I should receive hit #500,000 either tomorrow night or early Wednesday morning. (Wednesday would be better because that’s a special date here.) As always, I will put up a little incentive for the lucky reader. The 500,000th visitor to this blog will receive the Wyatt Earp 2-Disc Special Edition DVD starring Kevin Costner and Dennis Quaid. Since I gave away Tombstone for my 100,000th hit, I wanted to change it up for this milestone.
Hopefully, I’ll have people looking out for the lucky number, and a screen shot would help if anyone sees it. When the visit comes, I’ll probably be in work, and the city doesn’t trust us with internet access. Thus, I’ll probably miss it.
If the 500,000th visitor is not identified (or does not come forward) I’ll give the prize to the next identifiable reader in line - by IP address and location. So, if you’re close, make a note of what time you came here and where you came from. Get a screen shot if you can, too.
So again, thanks for reading, and good luck.
UPDATE Tuesday, 1:30PM (EST): SYLG is only 300 hits away from #500,000. The lucky visit will come today, probably in a few hours. Again, I’ll be at work and I will probably miss the milestone, so it’s a good idea to get a screen shot or other proof you won the contest. I don’t get out of work until 11pm, and I’ll post about the winner late tonight.
