You like me! You really, really like me! Sometime after 10pm last night I hit 5000 on my visitor counter. This is truly a momentous occasion! I remember when my blog was young. So innocent. So little responsibility. Now it's all grown up. Out in the world. Meeting new people. Developing and maturing right before my eyes.

OH WHY?!! WHY DO THEY HAVE TO GROW UP SO FAST?!! It seemed like just yesterday I was nursing it along, trying to get it on its feet for its first few shakey steps into the world. AH! It all happened so quickly!

*deep breath*

OK. I'm just transferring my anxiety about my son starting middle school today onto my blog. I'm better now.


Thanks to all of you who have so faithfully visited to hear my insanity posted on a sort of regular basis. Without you, this blog just wouldn't be the blog it is today.

Congrats on 5000! I know the feeling. When I began my first blog, I was writing for myself because I didn't believe that anyone else would ever read it. Unbelievably for me, I have regular readers for both my blogs! They are all great people. I've become a real comment junky.

MacHeadcase- last time I bought the beer, everyone brought their own. Either they thought I was too poor or my taste was too awful to get the good stuff. Or maybe, I just have very particular friends. YEAH! That's it!! Very choosey, tha's why they picked me to be their friend!

OldRoses- yeah, I likes the comments! I feel like my babbling is actually accomplishing something other than a personal diversion.

Congrats on 5000! Syl the cyber superstar! Try to remember some of us common folks, don't let the fame go to your head. My counter is at 1500...and let me tell you my wrist is pretty darn sore from all that self reloading.

Congrats Sylvana. Oh, when we were young. And congradulations to your son. That's a serious change in his life.

Don't worry.:) There is plenty more left.:)

I'm with drmax here... I'm also a big-time reloader.

DrMax, I have mine set to ignore my computer address so I can't affect the count unless I use another computer.

Beo, thanks. I will certainly let everyone know how things went today in school! He gets out in an hour and a half. I plan on taking him out for icecream later!

Sierrabella, thanks!

Wow, your counter just keeps pushing into the mid-to-high eschelons! Also: congratulations about the whole middle-school thing. After a few months, everything will be fine, but in the meantime, may I suggest you stock up on bulk ice cream?

Congratulations! I am almost at 5,000. Almost a big girl now...

Blogger Sylvana said...

TheDoc- That is good advice no matter what the occasion!

Maria- I'll have to go hit that counter a few more times for you.

Thanks. I never get tired of hearing that from you.

Congrats on 5000. I can't even figure out how to get a counter on mine.

Blogger Indigo Red said...

Wow! 5000 hits. Very nice.

I just looked at your sitemeter stats and they are impressive. Many blogs have more hits per day but are very localized. You have readers from Finland, Korea, Japan, Chile, Canada, England - like The Wide World of Sports, you are spanning the globe.

I predict 10K by years end.

Sandy, thanks. There are several counter meters available for free. You have to become a member (just costs you some info). And they give you a code to put in your blog template.

Indigo Red, thanks. I am a well-rounded individual. Perhaps that is what fuels my wide appeal.

Sorry I'm late to this party, Sylvana, but congratulations! In a funny coincidence, I've also just hit 5000 on the 13th. Guess who was my 5000th visitor?
Actually, I'm not sure. It's either you or Sideshow Bob, but it was definitely from River Falls. Thanks for helping me hit my own milestone! I'll have to dig up a ribbon or medal somewhere....
