mm486: 20,000

As I write this, mid-day Monday, 01-September 2008 U.S. Central Daylight Time, the good people at WordPress.com report that Left-Handed Complement is responsible for a total 514 posts (this will be the 515th when posted), 1,007 comments (admittedly, many self-generated), and a total of 20,226 views.

Now, I understand tht many bloggers are accustomed to 20,226 views in a month, or week, or day, or even every hour. We arrived at this number in about 16 months of everyday blogging, and I’m actually quite astonished that so many have found their way to this nanocorner of the ‘Sphere©.

Much of this traffic, which has been increasing over the past several months, can be credited to the churn created by BlogExplosion.com, with whom I am an all too willing co-conspirator.

But some I prefer to believe has been drawn by merit, as evidenced in our recent inclusion in the Carnival of the Liberals #72, which Faithful Reader should check out if you haven’t yet — good writing abounds.

Thanks, readers, both faithful and new, for coming along on the ride. We’ll keep at it regardless, it’s an addiction after all, but this pesky blogging jones is definitely more rewarding as readership grows, and quality comments increase.

It’s it for now. Thanks,

Recognition is tonic.

Yes, yr (justifiably) humble svt is happy to announce that a recent post, “mm454: It’s going to take a liberal quantity of BOLD” has been chosen as an entry in the latest Carnival of the Liberals #72, hosted this time around at one of my favorite blogs, and a longstanding member of the L-HC blogroll, Jason Buckley’s Washington Interns Gone Bad.

Thanks, Jason, I’m grateful, and while I am indeed justifiably humble most of the time, tonight I’m darned proud. I really liked that post, and I’m glad it made the cut.

Check out the Carnival — good reading in a variety of styles and points of view.

And be sure to bookmark WIGB. It’s worth making it a regular habit.

It’s it for now. Thanks,

–MUDGE
