Can you believe it?

I can hardly believe it myself. No I am not talking about the snow we had in Charleston yesterday although that was pretty amazing too. But this was bigger. Much bigger and almost earth shattering. Well for me anyway.

It is hard to believe that something this big started less than two years ago. I mean I never dreamed that it would come to this. At first I just hoped it would happen. Then I wished it would happen and finally I almost prayed that it would happen. But until it actually happened I don’t think that the magnitude of it actually set in. And I owe it all to you. Yes you made it happen.

Confused? It’s ok, I stay that way. No I am not talking about the presidential inauguration. No way. Those things happen every four years just like locus swarms but this is a once in a lifetime event. This is bigger than that. Much bigger. Let me give you a hint:




Figured it out yet? Here is another clue.




That’s right. Last night, I passed the 10,000 visitor mark. So who was the wonderful person who put me over the top and helped me reach that 10,000 visitor milestone? Was it a thief in the night that popped in and didn’t leave a comment? Was it someone who was visiting my blog for the first time? Or was it someone who visits regularly and always leaves a comment? I may never know…..but wait. There is hope. The same Sitemeter that logged the 10,000 visits also logged some other information. I quickly went to the location page which logs the location of the visitors. And after subtracting the number that I was over 10,000, this is what I discovered.




Yes the person was from Canton Ga. Now who could that be? Well by process of elimination and since I only have one reader from Canton, I can deduct that my 10,000th visitor was Chel from Chel's leaving a Legacy. Whooo Hooooo. Time to celebrate.

Thank you so much Chel for being a faithful (in more ways than one) reader. And thank you everyone else for coming back time and time again to read my blog. Now if I only had something to give out as a prize. Maybe I can come up with something. Maybe I already have. Who knows what surprises God has in store for us tomorrow?


Have a wonderful day,
Greg

Uh, wait a minute. I think I live in Canton, too. And for a prize, I would like gourmet chocolate, a new pretty coffee mug and a $100 certificate to Starbucks. Looks like someone has some shopping to do.

Ha ha..I pop in occasionally from Sandy's place, and have commented from time to time. I would have to add you to my sidebar to visit more often, because I have become hopelessly lazy about only checking out folks on my sidebar. I enjoy your posts when I come visit, so I think I will add you if that is okay.
Congrats on the 10,000 mark!

Kim said...

Greg, that's awesome! 10,000 visitors?!? I'd better step it up a bit, eh? :)

Chatty Kelly said...

Wow - 10,000 hits. Congrats! Very interesting.

Smiling with you.

Chel's Leaving a Legacy said...

LOL
You know this means I expect a return favor, right??? You'd better get busy. I expect if you were to click on over about 50 times a day, it would only take me about 168 days to reach that point.

Just kidding, just kidding. I'm glad to have been the one. :-)

And BTW, Lid's only trying to vie for a "new pretty coffee mug" because of the insecurities she's incurred from her "Ugly Mug Contest."

I'm just sayin.
:-)

Congrats Greg. What fun!

Katherine Aucoin said...

Rachel said...

Congrats Greg! :)

MGBHLH said...

Congratulations!!! That is wonderful. I think you need to celebrate. Could not have happened to a nicer SC boy.

By the way - didn't you love our snow yesterday? I know people laugh at us, but we SCarolinians just don't get to see that beautiful fluffiness floating from the heavens that often - and when we do we have to enjoy it!

Enjoy your accomplishment!

Jamie Dawn said...

You have a good sense of humor which is a must for non-boring reading.
Snow in Charleston??!!
WOW! Global warming must not be happy about that.

B His Girl said...

How fun! I was thinking about stopping by last night but my computer time ended. Wait...how long have you had your store open? Looks like the economy is not having any effect on your traffic!

Beverlydru said...

My heartfelt congratulations! Who knew blogging would be so much fun?!

Hi Greg,

You asked if men could participate in the Thankful Thursday Meme, YES! God instructs all of creation to give Him thanks, not just the ladies!! We'd love for you to join in. :)
