10,000 strong...and growing*

*to be sung to the tune of the Flintstones Chewable Vitamins jingle

My modest blog reached the 10,000 visitors milestone this evening and I just wanted to extend my thanks to everyone who's dropped by. Near as I can figure, my total audience breaks down as follows:

-90% are BE, BC, and BZ folks waiting for 30 seconds before moving on (hey, I do the same thing)
-3% are friends and well-wishers
-2% are those coming here from a Google search for Rachael Harris or "huge sweatermeat"
-5% is me constantly checking for new comments (I'm a ho)

While I'm feeling all misty-eyed, there are a couple of thanks that I need to give. First, thanks to Flirt in a Skirt for my jazzy new button:



Next, I'd like to thank Charity over at Red Designs for my swanky new banner:



Basically, dicta are the parts of a judge's opinion that aren't essential to his decision. In order to justify my huge student loans, I figured that I may as well utilize my law school education somehow. Also, "Mustache rides - $10" seemed too crude for a banner. Thanks again, folks!

Can I borrow that audience list?

Except for the 2% Rachael Harris and sweatermeat and 3% friends and well wishers I think it fits mine. Except for maybe I get 85% BE and 15% me checking if all is well...

- Once I did have Hugh Hewitt link to my site but the link got buried under 20 feet of "more important stuff" real quick. - Keep on blogging and have fun - Paul -

Mindy - You knew that I had to incorporate our law school rallying crew somehow, didn't you?

Paul - It's all yours. :)

Kate - Well, I actually have a mustache (and beard) at the moment, so techincally...

I actually Laughed Out Loud at "Mustache Rides...", and given the rest of the comments I'm thinking you made a tactical error by NOT going with it.

Congrats on the 10,000. I've been meaning to tell you how much I like the Hula Chicks!

panthergirl - Thanks. Maybe I'll make (or have made for me) another banner. Doubt it would get approved, though!
