This Blog Is Dead (or Hot Chicks Weekend or The Happy 6 Month Anniversary Post)


After annoucing the death of Television, Email and David Krug I have one more obituary to mention, my own.

This blog is celebrating 6 months in the blogospere today and we all know what that means.

It's dead.


Now that the honeymoon is officially over I can expect to see drops in my technorati numbers and over all traffic.

It was fun watching graphs go up but now I expect to see then headed downward. Hopefully I can level off at a spot that won't be too embarrassing because hearing Brian laughing at me everyday is not good for my sizable ego.

In order to slow the downward spiral I will be having a party this weekend.

Hot Chick Weekend

Nothing but pictures of scantily clad chicks with or without computers.

That should bouy the site numbers for a month or so…

It's been a cool 6 months.

People think the tipping point for this blog came from The New York Times article but that's not true. It was Liz Strauss, 9rules, BlogMedia and the Blog Herald that made this site relevent. I owe those folks some gratitude.

When I find some they will be the first to get it.

 

Of course I missed out on some opportunities.

I blew off interviews and speaking engagements.

Even when I agreed to do interviews I blew them off. Diane is still not talking to me because of it.

Here's a lesson for you folks dealing with me both of my ex-wives will agree with.

I'm terrible at commitment.

While I still have an audience I want to say some thank yous to some folks.

Matt and the crew at WordPress.com, if it were not for you guys this blog would be on Blogger or something weak like that.

Everyone who has ever made a comment on this blog. I appreciate it.

Thanks to anyone who has ever linked to this site.

Thanks to anyone who has this blog in their feedreader. (I don't have one but word on the street is that they are important!)

And most importantly, hugs and kisses to Angelina Jolie for having a name which guarantees hits when put in any headline.

See you after the party.

    Happy anniversary! If you are grateful to the people mentioned, I for one is grateful for all the traffic that you’ve been sending my way.

  2. David Krug Says:

    You are going to freak out my friends and family members. Too bad they don’t read blogs, or know what a Technorati is. Or that Google even has a blogsearch.

    I’m definetly not dead yet. Thank God.

  3. chartreuse Says:

    Thanks Minic! 

    And David, maybe I exaggerated your death a little. Maybe. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Madame Death Says:

    Listen, I’ll be the one to tell you when this thing is done.

    Until then, keep typing baby…

    (congrats man. you’ve turned a few heads in six months. to say the least.)

  7. Loren Says:

    You’ll be back. They always come back. To survey the carnage they created.

  9. David Krug Says:

    Holy Crap The Reason this blog is dead is because AllJolie is kicking A**. I’m a stat junkie and alexaholic only lies a little.

  10. VampireFeet Says:

    Congrats on making six months. I am looking forward to the hot chicks weekend! You know how to satisfy your fans.

  11. Charles Albrtson Says:

    Anybody who owns a wordpress blog knows about the All Angelina Jolie blog. It’s been a top 5 blog for weeks and had more traffic than Scoble a few days last week. (Not that I I’m Jealous are anything๐Ÿ™‚ )

    Congrats on 6 months in. I assume the dead part was tongue in cheek. This site is a must read everyday. You have created a very influential site, no matter what Technorati says.

  12. Jennifer J. Says:

    When is hot guy weekend?

  13. Liz Strauss Says:

    Just like that guy in the Monty Python movie. You’re not dead yet. You’ve haven’t seen the rabbit with three pointy teeth.

    Happy 6 month-anniversary. That means Brian must be coming up on his soon too. Oh my God, the laugh from this end of the blogosphere is going to make hard to write over at my end.๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Roy T Says:

    This site will only die if you let it.

  15. chartreuse Says:

    Thanks for the kind words folks.

    And it’s not true that hot chick weekend is just an excuse for me to look at porn!๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Brian Says:

    Even your blog is older than mine, old man.

    Congrats on your first 6 months and keep up the great work!


  17. […] To handyman blogger Chartreuse, who celebrated his sixth month anniversary today. […]


  18. Congrats, mate!๐Ÿ™‚

  19. range Says:
