I've Been In This Country For The Past Two Months

First off, the title is a reference to The Simpsons where Bart is in France. Second, Around this time last month, I celebrated the fact that I had been blogging for a month, and this time this month (right now!) I am going to celebrate the fact that it has been 2 months.

Why you ask? Well, why not really. Plus it gives me the chance to ask you guys to do things for me, mwahahahahaha! Well as well as blogging for two months when I was first worried I wouldn't even last a week, I've also managed to put a post up every day, even when on holiday, for the past month. So I consider that also something to celebrate.

I do plan to make this the last time I celebrate an achievement in the longevity of the blog until I hit maybe half a year, or a full year, if I do. I would consider that a massive achievement, especially if I could keep up making a post once a day. If I managed that I think my head would explode. Just which one is a fun way for you to pass your time.

Anyway, on to doing things for me. I'd just appreciate it if you could share your favourite post (or just the entire blog >_>), just clicking the Stumbleupon button would help a lot. I feel kinda bad asking that because on some sites I go on, mostly webcomics, the authors would often ask on their birthdays (it's not my birthday until next year, I have to make do with this) for people to do that, that just telling one person would be an amazing present for them, but I never did it, mostly because I never really had someone to share it with, although I would still share my favourite ones on Facebook for Jesse to see, as she is about the only person who checks my Facebook, and me hers. I see people that get like 40+ comments per post, and I wouldn't mind me a piece of that pie lol. I have 100+ followers but so little views. It's why I like to differentiate between followers and viewers. That and not everyone who reads is a follower...yet.

So yeah, share it if you can, and here's to another four months together before I throw it in your face again that I survived that long. If I do survive.

Oh, and, once again, maybe look in the archives, you might find something you like that you didn't notice before. It's a lot easier to ask people to do that when I only have 80-something posts than when I have 800 lol.

  3. Dang, a post every day is really ambitious, I could never pull something like that off but you look like you're on the right track.

  5. If you want comments and views, I wouldn't recommend stumbleupon. Commenting on other blogger blogs, posting articles on digg/reddit, using images in your posts that show up in google image searches. These are all good ways of getting comments and views I find.

  7. @ShawI'm not on Digg or Reddit, and I type up phrases instead of just posting the images. Maybe I should just post the images. the only ones I've posted are the ones I've made off my own webcam, not likely to show up on an image search lol. Thanks for the advice though.

  10. Great job on the milestone, I tried to do the daily blog post and just couldn't keep up with that and the summer schedule i was keeping, hopefully i can get back into something weekly or bi-weekly now that I'm in a regular semester.

  19. It's easy to get bored updating the blog and commenting etc., so reaching 2 months would be a good thing to do :)

  20. I don't have a stumbleupon account. seriously, ask the same thing of us regarding reddit, and I'm all over it. (and you'll get more hits)(because reddit is the better site)(WHY AREN'T YOU ON REDDIT YET!?)

  21. Mr. and Mrs. Simpson, we have transcended incorrigible. I don't think suspension or expulsion will do the trick. I think it behooves us all to consider deportation.


    I find my comments and views fluctuate as people leave their blogs in limbo and return abruptly, and then leave again. It's a cycle.

  22. @Generally Disgruntled Woo Simpsons fan! I like to think I've never left my blog in limbo, no matter how much I find myself there. Although my views did go down when I was on holiday, even with new content being up each day. Guess people weren't interested in them, or I didn't get away with whoring myself out even when I'm not here to do it lol.
