Ten thousand!

Woo hoo! I've reached 10,000 hits, in a bit more than three months. That may be chump change to some bloggers, but I'm pretty happy about it.

Number 10,000 was a Roadrunner-NYC user, according to my referral log and Sam Spade's reverse DNS lookup. If that may have been you, at around 8:15 PM CDT tonight, please drop me a line.

My friends did their best to help out. Larry, who is approaching 10,000 hits as well, was number 9999, and he sent me a screen shot to prove it. Either Ginger or Michael came in at 10,002. Thanks, guys!

And thanks to everyone out there who's stopped by, especially those who visit regularly. When I started I figured I was just doing this for my own exercise and amusement. Once I discovered there were people who actually made a habit of reading, it was a huge thrill. It was also a bit daunting. I feel a responsibility to my audience, and I hope I've held up my end of the bargain. I really appreciate the time you've taken, the feedback you've given, and the faith that you have in me.

On to 20,000!
