It seems like only five months have passed since I posted that the blog had finally reached 2000 views (and counting). Probably because it has been five months. And 20 days. But the fact remains that the little ticker on the lower left-hand side of the page now shows 3900+ views. Which, frankly, is shocking. In less than half a year, I had 1600 hits here. According to the handy summary tables that WordPress provides, it took me all of 2009 to reach 1000. And then another 1000 were added on during 2010. But now, after 4.5 months of 2011 have officially passed? A staggering 1769 page clicks in total. Keep in mind that is the first 1/3 of the year. April was my highest month ever, registering 530 views. More than half of all of 2009 and 2010 respectively. I must say, the webcomic has really been the thing that has driven the views up so high. Of course, I have done other stuff. And I am meaning to get back to some more thought-provoking posts, I just have not had the time. As of now, I plan on posting one post with words and one comic every week. I would eventually like to be updating Overheard more than once a week.

But before I digress.

  • The average per day per month has gone steadily up, from 3, then 13, 14, 18, and now 19.
  • The average per day per year has gone up from 3 to 13.
  • My busiest day was February 19, 2011. 92 views. That was the day of Overheard #1.

Thanks to everyone who has checked me out, and an extra special thanks to those who check back every week for more Overheard and other things! Comment with your thoughts on these numbers, and if you liked this post, subscribe in the top of the left hand toolbar!

P.S. Weird tag of the day: “Canadian Cancer Society” was suggested.


I am slowly starting to consider changing my theme here on WordPress for my blog. I’ve had this theme since the beginning of my blogging career, but I have slowly gotten tired of it. Maybe because I just randomly picked it because it looked good and I wanted to say something sarcastic that I thought was funny.


If you have followed me since the beginning, you’ve known that my writing has changed a lot since the start. I began writing The Chronology of Ainigriv, and thought I was a genius for coming up with a name that was “Virginia” spelled backwards.

I moved into football writing, trying to act like the sports columnists I didn’t read and had no idea how to write like. My favorite part is that the whole time I didn’t edit my posts very well and seplled vrey poroly.

I tried to get my audience (Mom and Dad) in on the action, then after 2 votes (great poll) came up with Discovery.

I previewed some baseball.

I recapped 3 weeks of The Amazing Race that no one really cared about. If you didn’t watch it, you didn’t watch it. What was I thinking pretending to now be an entertainment TV critic?

I finally finished my book and began posting.

I started The Commenting Page with this post.

Celebrated my birthday. I turn 15 in 6 days by the way. Hint.

I then reviewed Madden 2010. Speaking of which, I haven’t played that in a while…

Then I started a new blog. 360sportsjam. By the way, I probably will never post there again. Watch me eat my words in a year or so.

I also conducted a National Pie Day poll. Chocolate Cream Pie got the win.

And then one of my favorite posts of all time. This is where I believe I want to really take my blog to. A place of musing, philosophy, thoughts, jokes, and random stuff. I talked about Heroes.

A flurry of posts came in May. I first posted about running my first 5K and some tips about it. Posted a parody video of Sunday Morning worship services.

Then I released the announcement of The Liberation of Cruinne. Here is the first part.

Then I began Plinky. First Plinky Post.

Posted the second part of The Liberation of Cruinne.

Then I talked about my life in 10 years. This one got a lot of views and some comments.

I Hulked up.

And then my most recent one. This one was odd. I don’t know why I posted this. I was trying to go somewhere with it, trying to make it sound cool, or thought-provoking, but it never really came out the way I wanted it to sound. I posted it anyway.

So after all that….

What was the point? I wanted to show everyone where I have come from and how my blog has evolved over the years.

Now for where  it is going, I already said that. Scroll back on up.

Oh, by the way, Liberation of Cruinne Part 3 IS coming. I finished writing it and am editing now.

No longer posting Discovery. I will post the first few chapters though, for pleasure.  Still writing it however.

And with that I’m done for the night. Post a comment below, subscribe to my blog, Like it above or below, follow me on Twitter, etc.

Gimme some ideas for a new theme.

Writings And Other Musings 2.0 is coming soon. The answer is not 42. Look up.

“It” Has Returned…

Posted: December 3, 2009 in Random Stuff

It’s white. It’s fluffy. It tastes like water mixed with data bits and programming language. That is because its chemical formula is H2O101010 It is taking over WordPress blogs everywhere. What is it? I dread to tell you the name. Today marks the return of…


An old effect that WordPress has put back on, you can change what direction the snow is moving just by waving your mouse this way and that. To do so, imagine your mouse cursor is the wind. Then “push” the snow to fall to the left, right, or straight down. Enjoy the CYBERSNOW!*

Get yourself some hot cocoa. With whipped cream and marshmallows preferably.

*Imagine a robot type voice.

“Discovery” wins!!!

The votes are in and after only one vote from a reader and one vote from myself, I have decided that the name of my book will be called “Discovery”. I chose this title because it envelops the entire story into one name. The book is almost done, and as I have a whole two weeks vacation from school, I can hopefully finish it by New Years’ Day! Then it will be copyrighted and I’ll start publishing it here on wordpress.

Till then,
