761 Short answer; no. Long answer; no, but it wasn't a waste of time, and it was kind of fun.
24 hours ago, as of 0800 on 10 Apr, I issued a call, with my eye on the 20,000th visitor, for anybody who had a moment to spare to hit on my blog, here. At the time the deficit was about 125, and I decided to go for broke.
Well, we didn't quite get there. As of 0800 this morning, I'd found that I'd notched 19,958 hits, in total, getting 85 hits in a single 24-hour period, almost 70 per cent of my goal. As that's well over twice the amount I usually get in a day, that's a qualified success.
Also, as I've mentioned, I've got three URLs which I'll be linking to. Most bodacious of course was Josh Bancroft and tinyscreenfuls.com.
I will admit to a bit of disappointment on one angle; there aside from Josh and a couple of others, there were no comments at all. Sad am I at this; I was hoping for at least one conversation to come out of this, and a couple of links; if I got any new links, they aren't showing up (well, at least not yet...some of those monitoring items I use take a day or two to show up).
But I do have a takeaway here. Sure, I'd love to be popular and linked- and subscibed-to, but above all I should be probably doing this because I like writing and I have passions.
I do. And, I do.
Now to update the blogroll.
