I woulda been tickled pink if I could roll over 100 000 on the blogometer in 2016 but it wasn't meant to be. From the score board (and for the record, I think Uncle Bob or BW or possibly a rogue chimpanzee are running it):
Pageviews last month
Pageviews all time history
...missed it by that much....
As I may have said before, most of my readership appears to be ignernt redneck knuckle draggers from Wirecutter's. Uncle Bob and Neil and even PP send in most of the rest of my deplorable readers.
I seem to have picked up a 150 readers somewhere - possibly Russian hackers and maybe some Nigerians who want to send me lots of money if I give them my credit card number first.
Oh well. If it was all about numbers I would just go to the Big Guns to increase my traffic but to what end? I have such a ropey mouth and bad attitude that it's probably BETTER if I have less readers than more, HAR HAR HAR!!! I don't have the time or even the personality or disposition to run a high volume blog.
I DO love the idea of a slowly increasing membership built up by old school methods! If you like what you see here, and ya don't mind Mort drooling in your lap, wanting to be petted - or Filthie spraying it rather than saying it - see if ya have any friends with a sporting attitude and send them by too. Smoke 'em if ya got 'em, put your feet up and say hello in the comments if you're so inclined.
Mort is traind psychotherapy dog. He cares deeply
about his patients their life challenges.
He will listen to every word you say! He only looks like he's sleeping...
It's too bad that he stinks like a farm dog. My first
New Year's activity will to be getting in the shower with him
and soaping him down. GAH.
I'm not looking forward to it.
Unlike the bigger blogs that get thousands of views an hour and millions per year - everything said here is in the strictest of confidence! Mort won't say a thing.
We take privacy and security seriously here at the Thunderbox.
An unintended side effect is that responsible adults
don't have to listen to the noise! HAR HAR HAR!
Try not to work too hard today, and have a Happy New Year.
