100,000 Hits

(Poor Pat Benatar.)

Sometime late Tuesday night, according to the ol' Stats Counter, I marked my 100, 000th hit. I don't quite know how to celebrate such an occasion except with excessive navel gazing.

So here you go. Have at it:

Now that you've got citric acid in your eye, thank-you (especially all you regular visitors).

So, hit me with your best shot. Any favourite Book Mine Set memories/posts? (Of course, if this is all a little too self-congratulatory, a simple gift basket will do.)

Congrats! That's quite a number. :)

I love short story Mondays and poetry Fridays...basically add an idea at the start/end of the week and I'm game. ;)

By the way, what ever happened to the side music blog? I miss that one.

Allison: Yeah, I guess I dropped that one like a hot potato (and with no warning or eulogy). Basically, it wasn't what I hoped it would be-- not because the participant's responses weren't great, but because I had very little change in my Top 10 Most Played Songs. Had iTunes a feature that allowed you to track your top played tracks for a particular week instead of just overall, it would have worked better.

Love what you do to encourage reading Canadian books with your challenge! An inspired idea on your part; much appreciated by the participants and I would think the Canadian Publishing industry too.

You put an awful lot thought into your reviews and have a great sense of humour to boot. I think your #'s speak for themselves, John.

Look for your fruit basket to arrive in the mail. It will include fresh oranges, wild strawberry jam and partridgeberries... ;)

Congrats, John! Thanks so much for spurring me on to Canadian literature. I've loved your blog and the challenges for quite awhile!

Teddy Rose said...

Congrats John!

I love Short Story Monday and The Canadian Book Challenge, of course!

Remi said...

So when can we expect a greatest hits comp?


claire said...

Congratulations, John! I'm fairly new here, but I love your support for Canadian lit. And I like your games and the Wednesday Compare. :)

Jason said...

Congrats...I loved looking at your navel....excessively. lol

John Mutford said...

Oh wow everyone, thank-you so much. It's all so unexpected and unasked for.

You the man, John! The 100,000 hit man!

I love knowing that on Mondays you will give us short stories, on Wednesdays it's compares, and on Saturdays you task my brain with puzzles. What's not to love about your blog?
