Half a Million


I typically don't indulge in self-promotion or self-recognition, but I'm going to just this once because this issue has been a longtime goal for me.

This past weekend, "More Than Fine" surpassed an important milestone (in my mind): This blog received its 500,000th visitor.

I first started this blog about 8 months ago on a whim and a prayer. It started with a post about The Wire, which, in general, was poorly received because many people violently disagreed with me. But that post basically set the tone for what I was shooting for: A unique point of view that probably disagrees with you, but that's unabashedly presented anyway. Since then, this blog has been featured in a wide variety of exotic locales, such as Digg, Neatorama, and even Defamer(!) recently.

Blogs like Gizmodo get several times 500,000 users every single day. I don't anticipate I'll ever reach anything close to that number but it's just one of the most gratifying things in the world to be able to write and to have people read and reflect on what you have to say. What else is blogging for?

Thanks so much to all of you, my readers, for making this possible. I'll keep doing this as long as people keep reading; it is you guys who make this blog possible.
