A Good And Bad Day For This Site

Several months ago I had decided that as soon as my feed subscribers had reached 500 I would start displaying the feed count on this site. For months we have been hovering right under 500, but no matter what happened, it just seemed like 500 was an impossible goal.

Thankfully my last article got picked up on StumbleUpon and this morning I woke up to 502 subscribers. I was so stoked, but just as soon as that celebration began, I encountered another problem: the domain name server went down. The day I'm having unusual amounts of high traffic, my domain name gets screwed up and no one can come and visit. Fabulous.

So, I have no doubt that the subscriber count will be down below 500 tomorrow, but I'm going to go ahead and post the subscriber count. So here's where we stand: I began six months ago on April 1st of this year. Since then we've seen somewhere around 48,000 unique visitors, and we currently sit at 502 subscribers.

That's incredible guys. Thanks.

  1. I would not be sad at 500...I wish I could get to 100 (sigh) but alas, such is life I guess! Congrats though!

  2. Wow! Impressive. Congratulations!

    It is very frustrating when that kind of thing happens, and it happens at the worst times too. Ugh. Hopefully people come back despite the issues.

  8. Mike, I appreciate you asking. Life's been kinda hectic lately and I've let this one slide to the back burner. I intend of getting back into my writing schedule today.

  9. I'll add another to your list. I'm a first time reader. Although I'm not a husband, I'm a wife. It is hard to find a good blog about marriage and sex written by a man, so I hope you don't mind if I participate.

  10. Jane, I absolutely don't mind you participating. I would try to get your husband on here too, though.

    I appreciate the subscription!
