Congratulations to the individual who visited Just Like the Nut this morning at 9:15 ... according to my SiteMeter statistics, you became my 1,000th visitor!
Anyway, whoever you are, thank you for stopping by!
What does it mean that I now have had 1,000 visitors? It means a few things:
1. My blog opened on May 6 and it is now July 1. If I continue attracting visitors at this pace, come August 27, I will hit 2,000 visitors and will be able to say with a straight face that my blog gets "thousands of visitors."
2. Miss Snark retired from the blogosphere when her site reached 2 million visitors. If I continue at this pace, I will be able to hang up my keyboard on October 29, 2319.
3. Even though Miss Snark is certainly one of the Big Dogs in the publishing blog world (or would that be Killer Yapp?), she doesn't even hold a visitor-attracting candle to Michelle Malkin. So apparently the ability to attract visitors doesn't necessarily mean a whole lot.
Truly, it is the quality of visitors, not the quantity. And as far as I can tell (because I do know more about some of you than I was able to discern about this morning's visitor), the quality of folks who've paid me the honor of their visits over the past two months is up there. Way, way up there. Thanks, and here's to 312 more great years!
