The Mark Of The Beast


I recently surpassed my 666th blog post.

That pretty much blows my mind.  Which admittedly isn’t particularly hard to do….. Everyone knows that I’m all looks, and little brains.

Nonetheless, I really can’t believe that I have regurgitated THAT many stories and recollections on these humble pages over the years.    Speaking of which, I ALSO can’t believe that I have been doing this for over 7 years now.

7 years!  Damn.  Besides ‘breathing’, I don’t think there is ANYTHING that I’ve stuck with consistently for 7 years, besides this blog.  And while we’re talking about breathing, I’m getting kinda sick of that, too.  Once I figure out how I can stop doing that without doing that whole ‘dying’ thing, I’m gonna quit THAT cold turkey, too!

Anyway, when I look back on this blog over the years, I can’t help but be very thankful for it.  Besides being the best outlet I have ever found to explain to large numbers of people how gorgeous I am, it has been an unexpected place where I have made some good friends, most of whom I have never, and will never, meet.

A lot of people will tell you that the blogosphere is dying, and in a way, that certainly sometimes seems true.  There isn’t a blog owner among us that won’t tell you that their visitors and commenters have gone down significantly over the last few years.  That’s certainly the case here.

But, for the most part, I still get what I need out of this blog.  While it’s true that I don’t post here as often as I used to, or see many of my old familiar faces leave a witty comment, I still regard this site as a place where I can relay big events in my life, vent, and remind everyone that I have a huge wee-wee.

So yea, I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon.  And that’s a good thing for YOU guys, because I am fucking HILARIOUS.

It does seem to be dying and I came in late to the show world of blogging BUTT.....I still get what I want to out of it and that's to jerk off to all the hot ladies that comment to me, I haven't told THEM that.....yet.

Congratulations on your "staying power", because I threw in the towel when my daily commenters started dwindling down to 50 individuals per post.

I just require MORE LOVE THAN THAT, DAMNIT....

Congratulations! I have been blogging about that long too. It's amazing how many people used to comment and slowly stopped being around.

i for one, cannot thank you enough for gracing my computer screen night after night. My world is a better place because of that. ====bahahaha! Yeah, whatever. Anyway, that's pretty cool, -seven years. Congrats to you! I too, have noticed that there's not a lot of blogging going on these days. And my followers have all but disappeared (sans the "old faithfuls")

Blog on!

Yup. I like this blog.

And now I would like all of your followers to come and visit MY blog. It's hysterical!! Go ahead. Take a look for yourself.

Could we get photographic evidence of your definition of "huge," please.

I have always said "Facebook is good for finding old friends, Blogging is good for making new ones"
I have met several of my blogfriends over the years.
I notice my number of comments has gone down, but I thought it was because I was commenting less.....
I think there are two types of blogs, news type and personal. I haven't heard any statistics about the numbers of either.
