The celebration continues.
And what, you may wonder, am I celebrating?
My goal is 1 million visitors. I expect to hit 25,000 in the next day or so. And that is nearly one quarter of the way. Ok, one quarter of one tenth, which is half way there.
Fuzzy math aside, I really am pretty happy. Today, I acquired the domain crotchety old man.com. Last year I tried to buy it, and had no luck. So, whether the previous owner died or just got tired of a domain name he never used, I don't know. I just know it's mine. I have no idea what I'm going to do with it, but it makes me happy.
That and I'm in an all out effort to attract bloggers from Greenland. A few of my blogger buddies, Tiggy, Humorsmith, and the Offended Blogger have decided that it is important to have readers from there. Sounds good to me. That, and I'd like to have Miley Cyrus read my blog. No particular reason. I'm sure I couldn't pick Miley out of a lineup of teenage girls. But, she's pretty popular, and if she starts reading my blog, maybe she'll give me a shout out at whatever it is she does. And what do Greenlanders and teenagers have in common? A love of chocolate.
It's called marketing, people. So, this contest is all about Greenland and Miley Cyrus. That, and a way to thank some of my loyal readers, and maybe get a few new ones. Who says I'm not a super genius?
Oh, yesterday, I chose 3 winners:
Just send me an email (the address is on the side) and a bag of candy will be on its way as soon as the Spawn gets her tuchas to the post office.
Today, I'll choose 3 more. You may notice the winners were persistent and funny. That's a hint. Lauren put a link to my contest in a post. She won. The other day, Chica put a link in a post and she won. Chat put a link in a post, and she won. Seems to be a pattern.
Oompa Loompas do all the heavy lifting at:
