100,000 Views and the End of the Year!!

10, 09, 08, 07, 06, 05, 04, 03, 02, 01... Happy New Year!

So bring it on 2013 I am trying to be ready for you, your 2012 sneak attack was met with some great ninja moves and great friends. I had thought to do a reflection of all the cool things that 2012 had to offer or the fact that last year my sites generated around 700 to 1000 hits in December and this year... combined is 13,000 to 15,000. That is an amazing jump, I know some of you hit that type of numbers daily and to you I say congratulations. I am so blessed being able to bring people here, to any of my places... you who visit are good people... thank you.


The question to you is what do you have planned for your site, anything going to change... what do you see that you might change? So my reflection and my little bragging on people I have met over the course of last year include; Chris Sarandon [Actor], Bianca Barnett, Dave Sills, Frederik Wiedmann [Composer], Guy Maddin [Director], Imran Ahmad, Judgehydrogen, Nathan Johnson [Composer], Panu Aaltio [Composer], Roxy Gunn Project... the list goes on. Went to a handful of cool places; Days of the Dead and Kollision Con,... and met some cool sites like... HOLLYWOOD-SPY, THE GEEK TWINS, WRITING IN THE CROSSHAIRS....HEROPRESS, ZOMBIE BITES, LET'S GET OUT OF HERE, CAPES ON FILM... this list goes on... On a sad note, I found myself visiting less places do to a few things... one that damn captcha being on and my lack of extra time. For those who are regulars [You know who you are] here I wanted to thank you and to all the new people I hoped you come back.

  5. Congratulations!! For two blogs, that is impressive.
    And you've never failed to come visit me.
    No changes at my site. What's working now is what I'll stick with, although maybe a little shorter. Never really paid attention to visits or hits though, I'd say I'd want to increase comments, but I can't keep up with what I get now! Need to crank out a few more clones...

  11. Losing Stormin' Norman was such a shock the other day. So many tragic losses this year.

    Congrats on your 100,000 views and Happy New Year!

  12. I read that list in a magazine and realized how few I heard about at the time they passed away. Makes me feel a lot older.

    Congrats on the 100k and Happy New Year!

  13. Congratulations on the 100,000 views! As a newbie blogger still struggling to learn all the tricks to adding traffic (and OMG there's a lot of them) that number really encourages me. Maybe at some point you could be persuaded to create a post detailing what methods were the most effective for you in your march to 100k (and which ones ended up being the biggest wastes of time LOL). Here's to your continued success!

  14. As a follow-up to my previous comment: I've added you to the Blogroll on my own page, so you can probably expect another two or three views a month from my gargantuan stream of traffic. LOL

[Retro] Love the Comments, not so much the Spam... so I have enough man-pills, fake gold watches and link-back options that I need. Thank you!

No More Anonymous Monkeys to much of the above mentioned, sorry sometimes I get some nice things.
