BEWARE: Ego on the loose. Proceed with caution.
Last week I reached the 10,000 hits mark on storytelling nomad, which I felt was occasion enough for a kodak moment and a mild case of head swelling (see below for evidence of head explosion).
September was actually a bit special as far as months go with milestones hitting me left, right and centre.
In particular, I had a strong suspicion that I was being stalked by the number 100 after receiving my 100th subscriber, my 100th Twitter follower and WordPress very kindly exclaiming “Sensational!” at my 100th post. Add to that my 100 words on revenge and I was just about ready to take out a restraining order on my three digit stalker (who I actually kinda like).
Once again, thank you all for the love. You may have reduced me to a head-exploding-with-fireworks crazy happy person, but as long as there continues to be no complaints, I shall keep on keeping on.
Happy to oblige. (Congrats, btw. ;-) )
Thanks for being with me from the start Angela :)
Congrats Katy! :D
(But I’m curious – what the heckaroony is the “humanise” option above your site stats, alongside days/weeks/months?)
If you go to Users>Personal Settings there’s a box you can tick called “Surprise me (Fun mode)”. It isn’t especially exciting, but it does add the “Humanize” tab to the stats page which offers random facts such as:
As well as a box you can check when you publish a post that says “This post is super-awesome”, which as far as I can tell doesn’t actually do anything apart from make you feel good! ha!
Awesomeness just draws the eye, y’know? lol
Every now and then I tell myself I do know something about awesomeness…every now and then ;)
Woohoo – congrats!
Thanks! I think you’re blog is beautiful by the way. And what a rad name!
Congrats!!!!! I hope to reach that number myself one day. Keep up the good work :)
Thank you! And I’m sure you will, just when you least expect it, then BAM! ;)
Congrats! I’m posting a similar marking of milestones myself this week after an awesome September too! How do you get so many subscribers? I only have 35, lol
Just checked out your post and a congratulations is in order for you too! Woo!
I can’t give you an answer about the subscribers I’m afraid. They come, they read, they subscribe. Now I just gotta make sure I can keep them around! And 35 is still bloody excellent!
Keep it up, Katy! :)
Thank you Beth! I shall try :)
CONGRATS! And I love the pic of your head exploding, makes for good fireworks =D
Thanks AG! I’m not gonna lie, I had far too much fun using Paint lol
robertperyea reblogged this on robertperyea and commented: An awesome acheivement! Incentive for all of us to keep working at it! Congrats, o wise nomad!
You rock Robert!
Wow, well done!
Thank you! :)
G’ahead … let your head explode just a little bit. You’ve earned it! So glad you’re getting the recognition you deserve; you really are a wonderful writer. Congrats!
Oh Heather! Your kind words just made me smile. Thank you for your encouragement, it really does mean the world!
Congrats! I’m still trailing behind a bit, but not far! Bwahahah! *strokes his white cat*
Lol! You make me laugh Joakim! Thank you :)
Congrats on the big milestone! I know my ego would feel the same way if I reached 100 subscribers or 10k views in only a few months ^_^.
Thank you! Yes, well it deflated rather quickly when I started thinking about all the writing I still haven’t done, in particular the novel not yet written (hello NaNoWriMo 2011!), but for a day I basked in the good blogging vibes and let my head swell just a bit ;)
Got many a good laugh out of this post. Hahaha. Excellent sense of humour you have!!
Okay, obviously I hit the wrong comments button. But hey, congratulations on the 10,000 hits. Impressive.
