If most bloggers took 13 months to get 1,000,000 hits, they would probably keep it to themselves. Entertainment Weekly probably gets several million hits a day, and Reality Steve has said he gets something like 500,000 hits a week.
But for me it’s pretty cool — especially since the original idea for this blog was an epic fail.
Back in July 2009, The Famous Lisa Bradbury and I decided to start our own blogs and write short stories. I wrote one story — which ended up about “The Bachelor,” because everything I do ends up about “The Bachelor” whether I want it to or not — and The Famous Lisa Bradbury didn’t write anything or even launch a blog, for a while. (But she is writing things off the web, she just doesn’t want us to see them yet…)
After my one fiction story, I left the blog blank for a while … and then decided to write the same kind of pop culture recaps/gossip I used to write for Seacoastonline.com. I started when Jake Pavelka’s season of “The Bachelor” began in January 2010 — (Can you believe that was only last year?) — and I’ve been posting at least two stories a week ever since.
Anyway, thanks for clicking. I won’t flatter myself and think you’re reading everything. It’s probably best if you don’t anyway, since I just babble. I still just do this for my own amusement. No ads. No plan for ads. Just silliness.
