I got a friendly little notification this morning. As it turns out, it was two years, twenty four months, and one-hundred and four weeks ago that I started this blog and began sharing my writing and inane thoughts to the general public. My apologies public, but we’ll get to your grievances later. Right now, I want to put those two years into a perspective using a few numbers I gathered.
As the song from Rent says “Five hundred, twenty-five thousand, six hundred minutes… how do you measure, measure a year?” Well, up that to two years and you’ve got one-million, fifty-one thousand, two-hundred minutes, and the following numbers, according to my latest stats check. In the past two years I’ve managed to gather:
- 238,972 hits
- 8,778 likes
- 4,461 comments
- 977 posts
- And most importantly of all, 1,945 followers!
I have to say, those are some nice numbers and they make me smile! And so does the prospect of doing this for the foreseeable future. There’s still a moment that I feel I’m building towards, some kind of climax this site and what I want to accomplish with it hasn’t quite met yet. Don’t know what that is yet, but I’ll keep you posted!
In the meantime, I’m pretty happy with how this site has worked out for me. People always start writing with a purpose, and they take all that public once they’ve decided they want to share it. As for me, I guess I just wanted to say something relevant that mattered to people, and to know that the message was received. Thanks for being on the receiving end folks! And please feel free to keep tuning in! The show’s just getting started…

Congratulations Matt…. You do indeed write ‘relevant’ material…!
Keep the show going…. 😉
Thanks, that’s what I’m talking about! Makes it all worthwhile 🙂
Congratulations Matt! Here’s to another couple of years of awesome sci-fi news and writing!
Hell yeah! And thanks for that, I wish I could tilt a glass right now. Tried this weekend, only made things worse for my cold!
Hope you’re taking NyQuil or something.
I got some Chinese cough syrup. It does the trick, plus the good kind of decongestant, the kind that gets you put on a government spy list if you buy too much. Know what I mean?
we’ve got him on record admitting guilt! take him down boys!
I’ll take that as a yes, but just for fun, it’s the kind with ephedrine, a key ingredient in the manufacture of crystal meth. Buy too many boxes, and boom! Instant handcuffs!
Never mind boys, he’s not working with the Chinese.
Woohoo! Quite the milestone and congratulations. The blog world would not be the same without you!
Why thank you! I gotta say, I’m going to miss doing regular chapters and having you come by to comment. What else would guarantee your continued presence?
Oh, I’ll be sure to check in all the same. I love reading your posts, just didn’t have the time to respond to all of them so thought I’d cheerlead for the zombie trilogy. 🙂 Now I’ll just bug you about other fun stuff!
Cool! Bug away!
Good for you. Looking forward to more and more and more. ;0)
