Here in my little room behind the scenes (picture the great and powerful Oz hiding behind the curtain), the stats counter is telling me that the site has had 893 comments.
Just think about that for a moment. A little blog about a little town, and it’s not even a year old yet, and we’re creeping up on 1,000 comments. (Heck, one more snow day and Bob C. will probably be bored enough to add 107 comments all by himself!)
And yeah, I still have to go through those 44 screens of comments and do some counting. I know the top commenter is probably me — I do a fair amount of talking back — but who else has the most identicons lurking backstage?
I’m going to have to come up with some kind of prize for the commenter who hits 1,000. Anyone have any ideas? Donations? You can submit them, of course… in the comments.
EDIT: All right, who frantically Googled “Grafton midget porn” seven times? You know how much I laugh when that pops up in the stats, but what is your boss/wife/husband going to think?
