Friday the 13th

...also happens to be my two year blogiversary. Hooray! Sadly for the public, I have stuck with it for two full years. This, in fact, is my 400th post, which means I've written about 50 posts of iffy quality and 350 posts of stupid shit I do pretty much on purpose.

Oddly, my most-visited blog page involves the death of Osama bin Laden. I have no idea why; I didn't write anything of particular note or thoughtful insight. I assume that whatever I wrote hit Google's word algorithm in just the right spot and made its eyes roll in the back of its head. My other top posts are a hearty mix of candy bars and board games.

Speaking of: there is a slew of board game releases coming this fall. Hopefully I'll be able to not only purchase but play them and get them up on this site. People seem to enjoy it.

Anyway, if you're new to the blog and looking for a primer on some of the things that go on here, take a look here when I wrote my 250th post. Most of the things still apply, though I've tried to cut down on the political blogging so The Pledge hasn't been drug out lately. Don't worry, though, 'cause it's an election year! (Yay?)

I enjoy this, though I'll admit it's frustrating at time. Blogging's always been a sort of vanity project, and there are precious few who get significant readers outside of a core plus bots from Russian porn sites, and barely any make a living off of it. Last month, for some inexplicible reason, my overall viewership dropped like a rock, and is still well under the norm, and I'm not certain why. It could be because people are bored with it. Could be because Google changed their formulas. Who knows?

Anyway, I'll still keep plugging away. As always, contact us here if you have any comments, concerns, or emotional outrages. Until then, looks like it's candy bars and cleavage jokes for all!

I also never formally adopted Pimpin' Abe Lincoln as this web site's mascot as I promised on post #300. That will have to be rectified. Sadly, I still haven't gotten anywhere with podcasting, which is probably just as well.
