Happy Birthday to my blog!
I just noticed that today is actually exactly two years since I started this blog with this humble little post. So I think that I should congratulate myself for actually keeping this up for the two years I've been doing it, and I have no plans to stop in the near future, at least not as long as the craziness continues all around me.
It's nice to see that the visitor number has been growing, at a humble, but steady rate for each month and regardless of number of visitors dropping in from the link, it's always very flattering and nice to see when people start to link to my site (thank you very much to the latest additions; Karen in Praha, Our man in Abiko and DJlosangeles, I'll get around to linking you back eventually), also fun to see that people from different age groups can find something to like here.
It's always really fun to see a visitor dropping in from a random link and then see how that person spent several hours reading through all my previous posts (but for some reason most people work their way back in time, but if you're going to read through all of it, it would be better to do it from the start, but hey, whatever makes you happy!).
Also, I would like to thank all the people who sometimes leave comments, seeing feedback on a post is one of the really fun things in doing a blog, however, as a pretty rare comment poster myself I fully understand people who are content with just reading the stuff without commenting. I should give a special mention to my favorite comment of all time Kaiju on this post who showed that being a grown man doesn't stop you from throwing random personal insults on the Internet, good man!
It's always hard to know what posts have been most appreciated, if I count "popularity" based on the number of comments a certain post received I find it a bit strange since some of the posts I find most amusing myself generally get the least comments...
Personally, I would probably rate my post on advice in handling large amounts of jizz, the Ikea picture post, my discussion about the shitty box Sapporo sex scene, me taking on stance on the human rights of pygmies and my foray into the always hot topic of Manpanzees as those posts that makes me giggle a bit when I go back and read them again. For some strange reason, those posts received very few comments... It seems like me and my readers are not always completely aligned in our interests here...
Also, I'm pretty satisfied with my choice of pictures and fitting in Ted Bundy, My little Pony, retro Superman, Nazi war criminals, God-Jesus and Fix und Foxi in the same blog is a feat of its own. My own personal favorite though is probably the screenshot I took from the movie "Meet the Feebles".
So, Happy Birthday to my blog and let the congratulations pour in!
