Approaching The Big 3-0

It is with some nervousness I approach this "landmark" number. To be honest, I never in the least expected I would make it this far or this long, and the fact I have made it just makes me smile. "Go Team Me" and all that. I'm not having a party, I'm not going to make a fuss - aside from this post here, and probably another when it happens - but it is impressive to me.

Some of you are probably scratching your heads right about now, thinking "I am SURE he turned 30 last September" and you'd be correct. But I am not talking about how old I am, I am talking about how many visitors I've had. See, this started out as a place for me to just ramble on waffle on, and I never knew people would actually visit me, let along visit regularly! Checking my counter this morning, I was very impressed to see the counter clicking over 29,000 visits, and well on the way to the Bog Three Oh, Oh Oh Oh.

If you have NO clue what I am talking about, scroll down the sidebar, and there, right at the end under various buttons and stuff, you will see a teeny little counter. That's how many visitors I've had since adding the counter on there.

Of course, I'd like you, The Reader, to help me out here. Everytime you visit, check the counter. I want to know which of you is my 30,000th visitor. If you log on and it is exactly 30000 (or as close as dammit), take a screen shot and email it to me. Why? Why Not! I might even offer craptastic prize ;)

To take a screenshot, have the screen open where you want it, then press the Print Screen button (it's on the top row, far right). Then open up Paint, or whatever art-software you have installed, and press the PASTE Button (or hit CTRL V), and save the image, then email it to me at my Gmail Address. I don't want 29,xxx, I want the 30,000 or as close to as possible - 30,000-30,010 range maybe :D

It's early, I am bored...

I may just sit here and click refresh until I hit that number. lol

So what's the prize?

Dan said...

Prize might be something crap, or completely non-existent. I've not decided yet. Free publicity maybe ;)

And you COULD click refresh over and over, but I think generally it will take a fortnight of average numbers of visitors to get the next 900 hits up there.

Plus, I can detect foul play through statcounter. If you suddenly visit my site 500 times in the next three days, you'll be in trouble ;)

Bugger you Nancy .. I was going to say I guarantee I will be the 30000 visitor and perhaps thinking of the same little strategy .. let the games begin.

Dan said...

ANY jiggery pokery to get the top spot will result in a ban :D

I might give the person with 30,000 a week on top of the blog with a big link back to their blog OR site of their choosing... Plus the honour of having the screenshot saved for all time ;)

But NO jiggery pokery!

Emma said...

I cant even see your little numbers

Em's way said...

Do you want to borrow my glasses Emma ?

Dan said...

They make glasses for garden gnomes?!

Terri said...

I'll have to start looking and see where I'm at!
God knows I come here enough!!

Dan's blog was the first blog I started hanging out at! He got me started. I started going to all his "blogs he reads"...
now I'm addicted.

Flawed & Disorderly said...

Terri or Nancy are definitely going to sit on your stat counter until it turns to 30,000. You can tell Terri wants a craptastic prize so much she can taste it. And what else has Nancy got to do other than hit refresh?!

I don't stand a chance, and I'm the only one who has a legitimate need for a craptastic prize seeing as how I've been shopping all the stores for such an item for my coffee table!

Personally I think you should shoot me an email when it gets close so I can hover and get the craptastic prize. I'm not saying you need to cheat. I'm just saying maybe the love and attention needs to extend beyong Terri and Nancy for once. Okay? I'm just sayin. After all, I did let you be on top!

Dan said...

Terri - don't blame me for the addiction... You COULD have just said no. Don't they teach you that over there ;)

Jenny - I will see what I can do about the "advanced notification" of when the numbers creep up closer to the mark, but only because I got my way with you and ended up on top! hehehe

Nancy said...

The smut on here just gets thicker and deeper, doesn't it?

And don't forget about TIMAAAH! He had the same idea as I did but yelled at me because I posted it first.

Jennyhaha, your craptastic prize will probably be a dead squirrel so I wouldn't be too excited about getting it if I were you.

I think the last craptastic prize was dirty socks. I can't count the times Dan has offered to send me dirty laundry. I say, if he is willing to mail a package to me, make it something good.... like the candy and goodies that Jo sent Jessica. Now THAT was a GREAT prize!

Dan said...

Smut?! hehehe I don't know what you are talking about dear... And poor old Tim probably got the idea because of you, so that is your fault too. Poor little Timmah!

And I wouldn't send her a squirrel, but heeeeey another person to do laundry COULD be handy now I think about it ;)

And Jo is evil - she probably sent that package with ulterior motives.

Terri said...

Allll right....

I think Underwear Girl is trying to hone in here!!!

Humm....
Dan... remember you didn't have to even ask ME to be on top!!!

Back off Underwear Girl..

*giggle giggle*

PS...yes I'm going to be 30,000th...

oh and Happy Birthday again Danny Boy

Dan said...

Hey, I am a shallow git that is easily bribed... I might not have to ask to go on top with you, but Jenny admitted she was wrong (which is a big thing for a female!) AND put me on top!

(But it's not my actual birthday till September!)

Be interesting to see what bribes I can be offered to get advanced warning ;)

Flawed & Disorderly said...

What about on top AND backwards? Wait, that only works...never mind.

I'm going to have to think about this one. I'm not used to guys that prefer to be on top.

(Nancy's comments always crack me up! I want it noted that I don't want a dead squirrel OR dirty laundry!)

Terri said...

I like to get my birthdays taken care of early... or I will forget...
that way when September comes.. I'll have already wished you a Happy Birthday! My birthday is the 25th and my older sons is the 16th...

Can you tell I'm a Libra???

Jenny... what a goofball!

Dan said...

Jenny - I nearly said "I won't rise to that" but couldn't type it without my mind in the gutter :D

Terri - Don't worry, you'll get plenty of notice. Nancy insists that I am older than her, so the battle of wills will start early!

Flawed & Disorderly said...

You mean your mind comes out from time to time?

Dan said...

Actually, it generally lives in the gutter anyway - I just tend to be a good boy on here ;) I think people suspect bad things about me though :D

Other than that, my brain stays in all the time. Unless I need to pee.

Flawed & Disorderly said...

I don't trust men who don't openly admit their mind is in the gutter. All men are like that. If they say they aren't, they're lying and have something nasty to hide!
