Ammo For Sale

« « Gustav | Home | Palin Pays » »


Six years ago, I started this blog. I almost forgot it was the anniversary. I usually number crunch the anniversaries but just ain’t feeling it this year.

One year ago, I joined NRA. You’d think they’d send me a notice to renew. You’d have been wrong. I still outsmarted them and re-upped for a few years.

Update: ok, some numbers:

16,663 posts


2,424,771 visits

4,326,722 page views

662,290 spam comments

Hacked twice

$1,084 spent on software and hosting

$7,669 income from the blog.

A whopping $1,278 per year. but I only started selling ads like three years ago so it’s more like $2,556!

    Almost makes me wanna “go big time”… but my blog, for now, is far too specialized.

    Congrats, and here is to six more.

    Of course, back previously when I was a member of the NRA, I could not go a month without renewal requests/spam mail… And after I let the membership lapse, they started getting rather abusive with the letters. Consider yourself lucky :).

    I’ve enjoyed reading here, so I raised a glass of Highland Park in your honor.

    ‘$7,669 income from the blog.’ In the interest of full disclosure, you should also include the wheelbarrows-of-cash income…

    My congratulations as well, to someone even more personable IRL than he is online. I’m glad the inner-tubes allowed us to meet, and I feel the better for it.

    Here’s to the next six years!
