seven hundred.


I don’t really care about stats so much that I check them constantly. But I do notice when I hit a big fancy round number.

700-follow700 followers.
(Ignore that number over there on the sidebar → where WP insists on adding in my paltry twitter followers…)

Thank you, freaks! Oh, you’ve got to have some freak in you if you’re reading this. You know I’m right. Even if you didn’t when you entered… you do now. I’m the freakmaker. (Now I’m just making up words.)

Of course, I know 700 is nothing to some. I don’t care… it’s a lot to me. And of course, I know less than half (oh, probably less than less than half…) of the 700 read a damn word I post. But I still don’t care.

I know I say this every time I pass what I consider to be a milestone, but I just have to repeat it. I never thought 700 people would click follow. Hell, I never thought 20 people would.

So then I looked at my other numbers… because the 700 looked so fancy…

429 posts

That just looks huge to me. It feels like prom queen all over again. Unlikely, unexpected, and a bit ridiculous. (I have got to find a picture of that dress… since it was apparently tiara-worthy…)

Thank you all again… I appreciate you. I wish I could send you all flowers… or wine… or chocolate… or whatever gift you prefer. Coffee? Tea? Me? Ha!

I thought I’d share these, too, since I find them so amusing…

search me.

And on a completely unrelated note, I heard this song today and was reminded of how much I love it. So you get it, too, should you choose to listen to it.

    I love Echo and the Bunnymen! I have a short story based on this song in my archives. They (well Ian McCulloch and one other original member…) came to Philly a couple years ago. I dragged a very unhappy H to see them in concert. They were ok… Ian is bitter and he got super drunk during the show… Ah, well.

    Congrats Sandra! I always wondered why the WP numbers and the followers don’t match! Thought it was including email subscribers! I don’t care about numbers either BUT I’m sure that lots may read your great work but simply don’t comment or take the time to click Like. Where did you find the search terms???

    • Yeah… I think at one point I searched WP help to find out why the numbers don’t match… I didn’t get that at first either! I found the search terms on the stats page… I went to the year tab… and got the list… 🙂


  9. Yay, congratulations! I think 700 sounds like A LOT, but then again, I’ve yet to reach 200 😉.

    Also – “forceful neck kiss”? Lol!
