Chris and I joined forces and moved Mr. I to WordPress almost three years ago, all the way back when Flight of the Conchords was topical.
Since then he was hired by Sporting News, and then SB Nation. I left AOL for Yahoo!. He relocated to Charlotte, and I to Wilmington. He bought a house. I became a dad. And between then and now we’ve made 2,000 posts on this blog.
The milestone post happened last Monday I think, probably with that day’s DMV. It was like all the rest, except it marked the passage of time, specifically all of our time
wasted spent blogging since July 2007.
Coincidentally, Mr. Irrelevant has reached a few other milestones lately:
1,000 followers – Maybe more, actually, but there’s at least 1,000 via Google Reader, Twitter and Facebook. Followers are the best.
10,000 comments – My favorite emails are the ones alerting me to a new comment, usually telling me to stop picking on Rob Dibble or something. We don’t get that many though, about five/post over time.
4 million page views – That’s 2,000/post, which sounds a little better.
But those are just numbers. What matters is that we enjoy doing this, and that you enjoy reading it. Nobody pays us for it, you know, and the prospect of some sort of jackpot is pretty far-fetched. It’s worth doing still.
Do me a favor though: Let us know what you like about the site and what you don’t. Fresh ideas are welcome too. Oh, and if you could find our gray sweatpants that would be great.
