So...Who Wants to be Number 50?


Yeah, yeah, I know...it's maybe not the most humble of things to admit that I check to see how many people follow my blog, or that I check to see how many unique visits I get per day and all that shit. But can you blame me? It's something I do because I enjoy it and like any other form of creative expression you want people to look at your art, watch your play, come to your game and cheer or read your blog.

Noticed today I am at 49 followers on Blogger. Now, that is sort of a relative thing, since it actually isn't the true count of readers that there are. And I know it technically doesn't MEAN anything...BUT, because I'm a bit OCD and because 50 is such a cool number, I want to throw it out there...who wants to be number 50?

I DOUBLE-DOG dare ya...c'mon, help a brutha out with one of his illusions...

  2. LOL you are so much like my husband. I do the blogging but he likes to check the 'stats' and see if I'm doing well or not! LOL

    I on the other hand look at it a a form of therapy,and hoping it will help others. He likes to see if people are following us or how many hits.

    Well glad you got your 50th follower!

  8. Congratulations!

    Like Pastor Dave had been doing, I don't "officially" follow anyone's blog, but by my constant remarks, you know that I read you RELIGIOUSLY!!!

    (I'll NEVER be as "famous" as you!!!)

  10. I follow people in a reader, so I'm not there but I do "follow." I'm actually complete clueless about Google Followers, but I do have Google analytics on my blog, which is sooooo much fun to look at.

  11. Sorry Ken. I'm a leader not a follower.

  12. Do you use StatCounter? I'm obsessed with it, and now I guess that I've outed myself. I check it all the time. I got here too late to be your 50th blogger but I'm shooting for 59 or 60. You rock, blogzilly.

  13. ROFL I love my live feed, because I can see the weird things people google to get to my blog (and find out which subjects are "hot"!) And yeah, I check my google subscriptions, which incidentally, does NOT coincide with "who's following me?" It's odd. Anyway, cool blog. I think I'll hang out for awhile. By the way, I'm Leah, mom to 13 year old Angela who has Down syndrome and her own rare disorder, Cricopharyngeal Achalasia that we're trying to get treated. I'm wiped out!

  15. Just heard about your blog when reading Joyce's post. You wouldn't believe this but hearing about your blog comes at a time when we just learned that our daughter, Quinn, as IS. We were to begin ACTH this week, but were sent home because she has a cold. Have to go back next week. In the meantime we painful have to watch the head bobs. I will certainly be following your blog. Good luck with everything on your journey.

  16. You could also send an email to ACORN and they would give you 20 or so more followers...sure, many of them would be named John Doe and Mickey Mouse but hey, it works for elections...why not blog followers?

    Your blog is awesome. You have earned each and every follower!

  17. You already pimped me to be your 14th follower, because you were superstitious about being stuck with 13. But I was reading your blog before that, I just had never become a follower.

  18. Wow...anyway, thanks to all who joined in and hit the follow button. Made my week!
