I did some math earlier in the week and realized that my 800th post was going to happen over the weekend. I had some choice as to what to actually post as number 800, but decided to go ahead and let the 800th post be about various milestones happening this month. Tomorrow (July 25th) is also the two year anniversary of starting this blog. If you’re at all curious, go take a look at the very first post (appropriately an early comic strip) I made on the blog way back on July 25th, 2014.
A milestone that occurred earlier this week… ‘Sects had its 500th episode! I also realized counting the ‘Sects milestones are tricky. I have skipped some days here and there, and that’s easy enough to keep track of… but there was also one day last year when I actually posted two episodes in the same day! So… the 500th new episode was posted on Wednesday this past week… but the 500th day of unique episodes actually happened on Thursday.
An honorary mention is the hit counter… I’m just under 24,500 hits on the blog in two years. It has been a slow uphill climb, gaining followers and regular visits over the years. I’ve definitely got a strong loyal following now, but I’m always hoping to expand… hence why I gave up the ghost and joined Facebook last year to provide additional promotion for my work.
Thank you to everyone who has been here for the long haul… thank you also to all the newly following! I hope I continue to create things that engage you in some manner, whether it be in quality of the art or the silliness of the idea. Please, if you really enjoy any of the things I do here, tell your friends and let’s see how much we can blow this thing up for year three!
