More than 10,000

Well, I've made it to 10,000 views. Not too shabby for a Blog that I started about 4 months ago on a whim. It was a real rush to the end too, with one of my posts inexplicably gaining about 2,500 views alone thanks to an endorsement from Raging Heroes' Social Media (thus becoming about 10 times more popular than anything else I've ever written).

If there's one thing I've learned it's that the internet is really random like that. Often great posts will go by the wayside; completely unnoticed by all but about 10 people. Other times a throwaway post, or piece of shamelessly self indulgent drivel (40k pickup lines anyone?) will inexplicably shoot to the top of the "most popular" list. The secret seems to be quantity, and as much quality as you can muster. Mostly quantity though!

Anyway, the whole thing got me thinking - maybe I should mark the occasion somehow. I mean it seems like a bit of a benchmark for me. Is it time to start a new army? a crazy one off project? Only time will tell, although I'm certainly open to suggestions! 

For the meantime, I'm going to celebrate by inventing a new word "Blazmolicious".

To be understood in this context:

Dude 1: "Did you see that army?"
Dude 2: "Oh yeah, it was hotter than hot, it was hot Hot HOT"
Dude 1: "Yeah it was Blazmolicious!" 
Dude 2: Says nothing, too busy doing air guitar inexplicably. 

How good does this guy feel? Blazmolicious I'd say!

And there you have it. I'll invent a new word at 20,000 hits too, so if you value your ability to communicate in polite society stay tuned as this is going viral any minute .... !!....!!! (nope, not viral yet) 

The only thing I know is that I might have to change that banner at the top that proudly declares "The hobby blog that nobody reads". Whatever I replace it with, you know one thing for sure - It'll be Blazmolicious!
