Not sure where to begin really – this is all kind of surreal, because I really didn’t think that this milestone would see me where things are today with the blog.  Needless to say, the blog has succeeded beyond my wildest expectations, so thanks to everyone who’s made that possible.  Without further ado, here’s the big news (via YouTube video, so feed readers, stop in and get the news by taking a few minutes out of your day for this exciting video news bulletin!):

For the data hounds, here’s a rundown of some of the stats for a snapshot of what’s that’s happened thus far on the blog:

  • Posts = 500
  • Comments = 1107
  • 107 Categries
  • 544 Tags
  • Total Visitors = 231,000
  • Single Highest Traffic Day:  Thursday, April 10, 2008
  • Subscribers:  1006
  • Highest Subscriber Count Ever:  1018 (4 days ago)

That’s a lot of stuff when you think about it.  So, for all the thousands of you that have been tuning in regularly, thanks so much for all your kind thoughts, words, and contributions over all this time.  Tune in to the YouTube video for the contest news and some other fun stuff!  In the meantime, keep on shooting – you know what’s coming up in the next 500 posts!  Happy shooting everyone.  Have an awesome weekend and we’ll see you back here on Monday for post #501!

  1. Way to go Jason! I’ve already passed the 400 marker and heading on to 500. Still, miss my old blog with it’s readership and stats. But the new blog has come a long way toward being as busy as the old blog….so there ya go! 🙂

    Sounds like you’ve been busy. Can’t wait to see the new design, and the new multi-media! And I’ll be looking forward to more on the upcoming contest. Think I’ll enter and take a crack at that Think Tank system! 🙂
