A new milestone

Congratulations! You are the 3,000th visitor to Digital Fishwrap. And as a token of management's appreciation you get this post in your honor. Please remember to sign the comment section to record this event for posterity and to get the recognition from all the other visitors, which you so richly deserve.

OK, so management is cheap, and has no budget. What do you people want for free?

And in the interests of full disclosure, not everyone visiting this Web site today will be the 3,000th visitor, but one of you will be, that is unless only 7 people show up to this site today, April 28, 2005.

I admit. I've become sort of a geek about the stats on this site. Not that 3,000 visitors over the life of this blog is anything to boast about. Some big blogs get more visitors than that in a day. But, it's a milestone here, none the less, and I am stunned that one person would come to this site, let alone 3,000 (or 1 person 3,000 times). OK, so I know that more than one person visits here, and I know far less than 3,000 have (or do) because I know some of you people come back more than once. You really should talk to a professional about that by the way.

But mostly, I'm grateful that people bother to take the time to read anything here at all (and some of those visitors don't, but I'm talking to those of you who've bothered to read this far, or read any of the links or any of the posts or comments here). Time is a valuable and precious commodity. So thanks for the gift of some of your time, today, and in days past.

The Fishwrap cranked up on Dec. 17, 2004. And we started counting who was coming here back on Jan. 5, 2005. I often joke that 5 people read this site, and that's probably not too far off. So, thanks, to the five of you who stop here with some regularity. And thanks as well for those of you who wander in of the cyberstreet. It's been nice having each one of you stop by.

A "real" post is below.

Brat said...

Are you sick of me yet? You better not say yes! It is like the question, Do I look fat in this? Your standard answer should always be, of course not honey, you look beautiful!

Brat said...

Congratulations G-man! :-)
It looks like Brat took the prize as # 3000. sooooo, whatcha gonna give her??? And can I watch???;-)

For the record, Brat was not the 3,000th visitor.

She just spent apparently way too much time on the site this morning.

She was visitor 2,994. She has a very distinctive ISP, so her movements are easy to track.

So, who is, or will be the 3,000th visitor? Is it you?

3T, my Web counter thingy disagrees. It was not Brat. She must live with it, as must you. Life goes on.
