Yesterday I had my 10,000th hit since May 18, 2007. I started blogging in September (I think) of 2006, but didn’t start tracking until May. Yes, I track my traffic. I may not know who you are, but I know where you are. In any case, in honor of those 10,000 visits, I’m going to do a little give away. I will be selecting TWO LUCKY WINNERS; one will be the first person to post a comment to this post (all you night owls…this is what it’s all about) and the second will be chosen at random (names in a hat) from all of the comments* made on this post between now and Thursday at midnight. Hopefully this will encourage some of you lurkers to leave a comment…if you don’t have a gmail/blogger profile, just leave an anonymous post and include your name (it can even be a fake name if you’d prefer to remain anonymous to the public at large…aka my other readers, although if you win, I will have to know who you are, so don’t comment if you don’t want me to know you read my blog).
And, what do we have for them, Bob? Well, as I am a lover of music (and concerts) and I just got home from one and have music on my mind, you will receive a special 2-cd set of my favorites from the tours of ’07 (meaning the concerts I have been to thus far). There may be some other surprises as well, but no guarantees other than the cds…although that alone should make you all want to leave a comment as I have been to some great concerts this year, including, but not limited to, Joshua Radin, Pete Yorn, Dashboard, Muse, and Young Love**.
After selecting the winners on Friday, I will post your names to the blog and you will then need to email me your info (real/full name and mailing address) so that I can get your prize to you.
Thanks for being such a great audience and for giving me so much encouragement and so many things to think about!
*Each commenter will be counted only once, regardless of the number of comments he or she makes.
**Please be aware that some of the music may not be suitable for young ears…I will do my best to filter, but no guarantees.
