Today is the 1 YEAR BIRTHDAY OF THIS BLOG!!!! My Anni-blog-iversary if you will. A day of joy and celebrating throughout the land. To those of you who have been reading since the beginning, thank you so much! And to those of you new here…
If you are looking for insights into life and the richness of the human experience…then I’m sorry this is probably not the correct place for you. However, if your quest is for borderline appropriate nothingness and made-up statistics than WELCOME FRIEND!!!
In honor of our occasion I made you all this card:
It makes me so happy that people have read and enjoyed this blog throughout the year, and I truly hope you keep reading. When I started this thing I kind of thought it would peter out within a month, but the feedback has been PHENOMONAL and I am having soooo much fun writing it!!! I want to blog for your amusement for the rest of my life.
Well, as promised in last weeks post, here are the results of those polls:
WHICH POST FROM THE LAST YEAR WAS YOUR FAVORITE?
You guys LOVED the Eavesdropping post, which I kind of thought would be the winner because that is the post everybody always mentions. So verily I promise you that I will try to be creepy whenever I am in public from here until the end of time and listen in on everybody’s conversations, because the answer to the WHAT WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TRACY TO BLOG ABOUT NEXT question was:
“More Eavesdropping! We demand more eavesdropping!”
The answer to the last poll of DID YOU CLICK “SHARE” AFTER READING POSTS was: “Why do you hate pants so much”, followed closely by “Yes of course, I want you to be happy and blog all the time”.
I would love it if you guys would share the posts you enjoy, because when you share a post a new person reads the blog, then they share a post and so on and so forth until eventually Mindy Kaling reads the blog and asks me to be her best friend. It’s all riding on you.
In 1 year and 58 posts FOR A RAINY DAY has received 3,486 reads!!! That is pretty impressive to me. So I love you guys for caring, and I feel like I should give you something in return for your awesomeness, but I don’t have any money. Wait, you know what, screw you downed economy, I will give gifts! The 5th, 10th, 20th and 8,000th person who follow the blog will get a gift!!! Verbal contract, legal and binding.
(*****Sidenote: and I promise this is the last time I will mention this. A friend asked me if you had to have a WordPress account to follow, and the answer is no. Just click FOLLOW at the top of the page and put in your email. All that will happen after that is you’ll get an email when I post something new. And also I will love you forever! *****)
So how should we celebrate this monumental occasion? With cake and ice cream of course, but all eaten in the privacy of our own homes. Yup, that feels right.
I freakin love you people!!!
