A Milestone Worthy of Mention

As of 2:45 pm today, 50,000 people have clicked onto justaskjudy since it's inception in January 2005, and it makes what was a sad day for me a little brighter.

Only a small fraction of you have left comments. If you are one who has, know that I am pleased and grateful for the attention you give this little corner of the web. Here's hoping you will continue to find it a pleasant place to stop and visit.

Something just occurred to me; I didn't put the statcounter on my blog until June 3, 2005, so the time was shorter than I first stated.

Thanks to my blog-friend Hope, I now have the Judyism sign!! I should mention that Greg Finnegan of http://hastyruminations.blogspot.com/ also did it for me, but I couldn't open his file. Sorry Greg, thanks anyway.

My sympathies on the loss of your dear friend, Judy. I hope you are finding comfort knowing she is happy, healthy, and whole right now.

And congrats on the comments!! Isn't it fun to hit milestones like that? I love to read your Judy-isms....you always brighten my day. =)

Carol could do it in Photoshop -- probably in about 10 minutes. Me, it would take 10 hours!

Your site is a favorite stop!


sage said...

wow! that's a lot of hits. I didn't put a counter on until mid-january 2006 and have maybe 10% of that many hits.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend. You wrote a nice tribute and I'm glad you got to take to her recently even if she wasn't able to respond due to her stroke. Blessings to you, Kenju.

Kristi said...

Wow-that's a huge number of people. That should make you feel really proud of your blog and your writing ability. Congrats!

Greg Finnegan said...

Sorry about your friend. If I can find your email address, I will send you something nice.

Hey! That is pretty good.
I think I have had about a dozen visitors on my blog since November - of course half of those hits (6) was me checking to see if I had any visitors.

Laura said...

I always feel at home here. I'll bet that's why everyone keeps coming back! :)))

Congrats on the "hit list"

I am so sorry to hear about your friend.

Carolyn said...

That's quite a traffic toll, congrats!!

Your friend was a beautiful lady. I'm so sorry to hear of her passing, but she is undoubtedly in a better place. (((Hugs Judy)))

WordWhiz said...

Congratulations!! Oh yes, I'm not particularly reliable or predictable of late, but I'll always be back eventually!

I've been thinking about you!

Inanna said...

I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of your friend, but, I too believe that just around that next corner is an afterlife without sorrow and without pain.

I imagine with a smile like that, she lived a very full life.

Sue said...

That's a huge milestone. I've never installed a site meter, but I'm sure I'd never come close to that.

Malinda777 said...

WOW Judy. I've only been on 7 months and I've just topped 6500.

I love your blog, it doesn't surprise me that 50,000 other people do too :)


PI said...

Congrats Judy!
I used to think the photo on your blog was you until I saw it on someone else's. Who is she? My guess is Gertrude Stein or some such writer.

Raggedy said...

Congratulations on the blog stats!
I am so sorry that you lost your dear friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I hope the tire thing worked out.
Your photos are great!
Have a wonderful day!

Very nice sign, Judy. The one I did was similar; sorry that you couldn't open it. -Greg

I see some familiar names over here. Merle for starters who sent me your way.

Congratulations on reaching 50,000.

I was late learning about stat counter too.
