50,000!

Well, I hit this yesterday, a day or two sooner than I thought I would. Wow! That's seriously crazy. And yes, I've been doing this well over 2 years, but still. I just love looking at my site meter and finding visitors from other countries and continents. =) I have some loyal visitors from Sweden, Canada, and Australia (shout out, girls!) Yesterday, I even had some visitors from Germany and Hong Kong. My nonsense travels to other countries apparently.

About three weeks ago, I started using Google Analytics to track where in the country my visitors come from. Just in the past 3 weeks, I've received visitors from almost every state. (Still missing Alaska, North Dakota, West Virginia, Delaware, Vermont, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire.) I've made friends in Texas, Utah, California, and Louisiana. Isn't the internet great?

Anyway, I know that's not why you came to visit my blog today. You came to find out who won the blog candy, am I right? I had 84 comments left since I opened up the blog candy last week. Using a random number generator, the winner is #42 who was:

#42 tif-do has left a new comment on your post "stuck on me...and my charred flesh":

ouch! But mostly I'm impressed with your muscley arm!

Tiff and I have been friends since we were about 4 years old, so I'm very pleased to award her with the $25 gift certificate to the Olive Garden. (I'll send it in your Christmas card, gal!) She's lived very far away for the last I-don't-know-how-many years, but I am happy that she'll be moving much much closer in a couple of weeks.

Thanks again for participating with me and humoring me for the past couple of years. More goodness to come. Up on deck for tomorrow's blog: "what happened to the food I just ate?"
