If you look to the left-hand side of the page, scroll down a bit, you will see a new milestone that Not For Nothin’ has reached. Not For Nothin’ has reached 50,000 views to the web log! What started back in August 2008 as a way for me to write down my thoughts on various news stories and bits of information, it is still going strong, 50,000 strong.
I’d like to take this time to thank a few people. First I’d like to thank you, the viewer and the 50,000 times you have viewed one of my pages on this blog. I’d like to thank my employers over the past few years. All of whom have kept my interest in news. I’d also like to thank all of the crazy people out there in the world who have given me tons of material to write about. I’d like to thank the dozens of interesting topics that strike my interest enough for me to write about and for people to want to know more about. And I’d also like to thank God, for which no page view is possible.
Yes, back when I first started I was consistent, posting something new and fresh everyday of the week. Yeah, it got a little tough over the years, may have been burnout, who knows. There may have been maybe a year where there was nothing new at all. But I do have a refocus and I want to continue making this website something informative for more than just the 50,000 that have already clicked on it. From a tropical storm slamming a man against a building, to the Casey Anthony case, to presidential elections, to what the chief of staff does, or even just to find out what “not for nothin'” is, I am glad that my product has been entertaining in some aspect. I know some people click here on accident, some search for some kind of purpose here, but hopefully all can come away with knowing something they didn’t know before.
Not for nothin’, but it’s now on to 100,000!
