20,000 Readers Under the Belt

Sometime today I'm going to hit 20,000 views on my blog. When I started this version of "Crazy Politico's Rantings" in August I didn't think I'd get that many in a couple of years. I'm glad a bunch of you have found this place and made it a regular stop.

I've also found, as evidenced by my blogroll, a bunch of places to check out interesting folks, who I try to get to as often as possible, though I've been a little slow on it lately.

When I restarted this in August I hoped to see 25 or so readers a day, when I started averaging nearly a hundred by December I was thrilled. I didn't think this would get me mentioned in the NY Times and about 8 other newspapers, and a bunch of magazines (The Wal-Blogger story), or onto Charlie Sykes blogroll. By the way Charile, I still consider being on your roll a bigger accomplishment than being mentioned in the Times.

Thanks again everyone for stopping by, leaving comments, and adding your insight and thoughts to my ramblings.


Update: Visitor #20,000 logged in from a Level3.net account in Los Angeles California, and was referred by this Newsweek article, and left by visiting Common Freaking Sense

Congrats to you Bob. I started in June and here's the latest count: 9,047. If it was just one visitor that cared that at least this American loved his country and supported it's military. I wanted the kids who defended our country know that we appreciated them.

You have done an excellent job. I am glad to know you.

Congrats my man! Keep up the great work! I depend on you to read the paper for me for I'm quite positive that we'd re translate their propaganda exactly the same way...

*highfive* Nice work brah!

Thanks All! Not sure if I'll beat you to 100k Paula, but I figure I gave you a fair headstart :)

Griz, thanks very much, I'm glad to know you too.

Peakah, All the news today fit into 2 categories, bad or slanted, at least according to the papers I read :)

Jeff, there are lots of ways to go Crazy... Wait, you had a comma in the sentence, never mind.

Congrats Crazy. Glad I could be a small part of your 20K victory. Your blog is great and informative. Of course you already know that. Just kidding. ;)

Congratulations Bob! You do fantastic research and you explain things very well. We need to get you to brief the President in the mornings!

Thanks Sgt. and Shoprat, glad you guys are around.

LP, I can do that morning briefing for the next month, but after that I won't be living close enough to DC for that to work.
