A million reasons to thank spammers

To my dear readers,

It has been 5 years since I started this blog...  Who knew that I would one day hit a lot of pageviews?

However, though I know that there are at least 10 people out there who look at my blog on occasion I can't give them all the credit... because those spammers are really my biggest audience of all.  Of course there are also the occasional visitors from Google who have come to my site searching for:
  • Symbiosis list
  • Goldshire Inn ERP
  • angry face
  • sexy leather transmog
But those guys who visit me wanting to visit their dating sites in Canada, the girl from the coconut oil hair products, the cheap designer brands store, and that guy with that weight reduction tips blog - I have to give you a big thumbs up because you must have left more than 1000 comments each - each comment equates to a visit, right?  So, even though you visited for the sake of visiting (not really sure if you REALLY wanted to read about my World of Warcraft adventures) just knowing that you dropped by.. makes me feel loved and read LOL!

But, though I do thank you spammers, it's my current readers I must thank.  Each of you who visits and reads my verbal diarrhoea and crazy thoughts and talks to me through my blog make me immensely happy! So, to all my present readers, I thank you!  All my past readers I thank you too (though you wouldn't see my thanks because, well, you read me in the PAST but not the present), and to all my future readers... ok, I won't even GO there because there are all sorts of space time continuum issues and paradoxes that may occur with me talking to people in the future.



Now, I shall do a Greer Garson and do the longest thank you ever.  I think I may thank more than her 27 people so feel free to skip - I've made it easier for you by making the font small and unreadable.

Ok I tried to write a thank you list, but it was way to long.  There were like... 100 names in there.  I have decided not to individually thank everyone, because it would just be RIDICULOUSLY lengthy, so I shall take the easy way out, and if you are reading this, you'll know which category you fit into!
  • My guildies
  • My Blog Azeroth Buddies
  • My fiction co-writers
  • The well read and famous who dropped by and gave me squee moments
  • Everyone I've navispammed
  • Those who dropped by on my server to personally say hi to me
  • Those amazing podcasters who have read me, mentioned me or invited me to be on their shows
  • Those readers and bloggers who have emailed me
  • Those who are always there when I'm having game related dramas
  • AND OH CAN'T FORGET THOSE SPAMMERS
Thanks everyone for making me feel loved! :D

  2. Happy blogiversary and congrats on the million pageviews, helpful spammers or not that is pretty darned impressive! :D

    (And my amusement value of you having 'sexy leather transmog' as a keyword match is probably higher than it should be... ;) )

    1. Thank you Martha! Though you know, I wonder if people who came here looking for that were disappointed to find pictures of a tauren/cow dressed in leather clothing...

  7. Happy Anniversary!

    I'm a day late though, since my phone apparently decided that it didn't want to comment on blogs. (What's the point of having a smartphone if it won't let you leave comments??) Cheers to many, many more years of blogging!
