Thursday Morning Craziness

By Wyatt Earp | May 13, 2010

In case you haven’t noticed – and judging by the lack of e-mails and comments, you haven’t – this insipid little blog is approaching an unbelievable milestone. One. Million. Hits.

Yeah, I can’t believe it, either. Who knew I could hit “refresh” that many times? If my daily trends continue, the millionth visit will come sometime in the next seven days. When it happens, the following will occur:

1. I will pass out on the floor in a puddle of my own drool.
2. The lucky visitor – or closest identifiable visitor after the millionth – will receive a few prizes (that are yet to be determined).
3. I celebrate handily, and look forward to SYLG’s fifth anniversary on June 6th.

Of course, the mere mention of the milestone means that my site meter will die the day before I reach a million. If that happens, you folks get nothing! Heh.

    A million hits? Really?

    I think the loyal readers of SYLG should have a pool to determine the when the millionth hit occurs. I’m calling dibs on “pretty soon”.

    Congratulations Wyatt!

    Congrats, Wyatt. Your blog has almost as many hits as the Hilton sisters. Of course, they don’t always wear panties so that helps explain their popularity.

    Congratulations. I should be able to reach that many hits in 30 or 40 years…

    That’s a lotta hits. Imagine how rich you’d be if you charged admission.

    Hits or page loads? There is a huge difference.

  14. Jason Says:

    Oh, I see, it’s measured in Visitors. You may have well over a million page loads…

    For the record, the winning hit should arrive sometime on either Tuesday or Wednesday. Hopefully, I’ll be home to see it, or I’ll need Code Monkey to notify me on my cell.

    And this is much more a testament to all of you than to me. Without you, I would still be hovering around three hits a day.

    Jason – I use the Total Visits, not the Page Views on the Site Meter (below). Page Views are at 1.6 million.

    Way to go, Wyatt. I knew I wasn’t alone here.

    The missus & I are back in Texas, after doing some great steamed clams at Sandy’s Clam Bar in Glens Falls, NY. I was surprised…. she scarfed down three dozen to my two! (Free plug for one of my favourite waterholes on the planet. Heh.)

    Best wishes for the coming years.

    Now, if you only had a dollar for each hit. :) I look forward to congratulating you on that super-duper day!

    Robert B. – Glad to see you got back home safe. Thanks for coming to the meet and give my regards to the lovely Mrs. B.

    RT – Even 50 cents would have landed me $500,000!

    Damn this sure puts the kibosh on those stories that the American worker, i.e like myself, is getting more productive. Heh.

    You may already be a winner !

    Congrats in advance Wyatt. I’m not going to get excited though, because your counter… well, it f-ing sucks mate. Last time I even had a screenshot that read 500,000 and like The Oracle to Neo you told me I was “not the one”.

    This time I’ll just be glad for my old bloggin’ buddy’s milestone and not worry about being a winner. Being a loser is much easier.

    Sierra Hotel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    A million. Careful, mayor squidward and the won are watching. They might want to tax all blogs with over a million hits.
