A milestone: My 1,000th Post (really, no kidding)


This is my 1,0000th post. Frankly, I can’t believe I am saying that, but it’s a fact. Seven months ago when I started this blog, I never quite envisioned having that many posts. But then again, unemployment does bring certain benefits beyond the monetary ones.

As of 1:21 p.m.,  there have been 330, 173 views at TAE., with 18, 493 comments.  Readers from 169 countries–including some I frankly never heard of before–have viewed the blog at least once.  (There’s a country called Reunion? Well, yes. It’s a French island in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar and southwest of Mauritius. And I’ve gotten eight hits from there. Blogging is also an educational activity.)

The largest number of hits have come from right here in the good ol’ U.S.A. followed by the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Germany, Belgium, Hungary (I think Judit accounts for most of these), Ireland, Netherlands, France, Poland, Spain (thank you, Leigh), Italy, Austria, Brazil, Finland, India, Turkey, Switzerland and the Philippines rounding out the top twenty.  Quite the international set.

Of course, not all viewers have come to learn about Richard Armitage. There’s Ms. James’ book, which has drawn a ridiculous amount of traffic which now, thankfully, seems to be dying down; my posts on art, particularly Monet and the Impressionists, have drawn quite a few readers. Outside of the home page and archives, the RA-related post drawing the most viewers was the one titled “In case you’re interested . . . here’s Miss Capper.” Just recently I have noticed an upswing in search engine terms related to “Richard Armitage girlfriend.” I expect that might increase over the next few months.

Of course, there are those faithful readers who keep coming back no matter what the subject of the posts may be. I appreciate everyone who stops in, whether for a single visit or as a daily habit; otherwise I’d be having this party all by myself.  And if you write, vid, do artwork, if you create, you want to have someone with whom to share it all.  If you love a subject, if you are passionate about it,  you want to share it and celebrate it with others. And if that subject is Richard Armitage, well–he’s just too good to keep to yourself.

For my 1,0000th post, I share a bit of artwork I did last night, a fake movie poster for Black Sky based on the latest image released by Todd Garner:

Oh, I know there are other people in the movie. But this IS The Armitage Effect, after all, isn’t it? Again, thanks.

  2. Congratulations, my dear!!!!! 🙂 As Leigh said, thank you for feeding our addiction in such a glorious manner. And thanks, too, for all the encouragement these past couple of months.

    I, too, am amazed at the educational nature of blogging. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve looked at the country map and gasped at the number of countries. Incredible!

    Happy 1000th!!! Here’s to *at least* 1,000 more! *hug*

    • Thanks so much, dear. 😀 Nothing like the addict helping other addicts, is there? Or the blonde leading the blondes (and brunettes and brownettes and redheads and grey foxes and . . .) I’ve been happy to help in whatever way I can. You do realize it is something of a small world after all when you see all the places your blog has been read. 😀 Hugs backatcha!

  4. Congratulations, FedoraLady !!! 1.000 posts. You are really impressively creative ! Keep the good work up! I like to follow, but am surely not alone to get my country to 5th position ;o)

    • Oh, thank you, my dear. 😀 I’m not sure if it’s impressively creative or just obsessive at this point. 😉 I think several regular followers do hail from your country. 😀

        • And as much as it drives me batty sometimes with all its restrictions, I do have YT to thank for our friendship and I do be believe that is where several of my readers and I first “met.” And it’s been great having you along for the ride, Judit!! 😀

  9. Well done you!!! SO proud of you Angie! You know this is a daily thing for me too. Where would we be without you and the others who do such great work feeding – what seems to be – our ever-increasing addiction? 😉

  10. You have a lot to answer for, Angie, my love! What do I do every morning I sit at my computer? Anything work-related? Nah. You’re the most addictive and wonderful time-waster! And here’s to 1000 more.

  11. Congratulations ! Oh Angie your blog holds a very special place in my heart. This was the first place I could share my foolish addiction to that wonderful, beautiful man. Thank you again for the fun and love from Belgium !!!
