This blog now has 10,000 hits.
It's a bit too soon after my one-year anniversary to get all philosophical. But I will give shout-outs to AbbaGav, Zibbibo, Redneck Texan, and Ze'ev for their nice comments then, in an attempt to pump up their rankings as well.
You might want to check out Blogshares, which is another interesting attempt to rank blogs by popularity. I added a chart on my sidebar to show how my blog has been doing lately in the blog market. People who actually play that market probably have way too much time on their hands, but it is still a cool idea.
