I demand the sum of…..ten MILLION visits! Muhahahahahaha!

Yes, I know I did that bit beforetwice, three times, even!—but I liked it so much that I wanted to do it again, at least until my readers run screaming away, annoyed that Orac, of all people, would recycle the same old joke over and over.

Of course, after 3,000,000 visits, I basically gave up even noticing at each new million visit mark; so it’s been nearly three years since I recycled this particular joke. This time’s different, anyway, even though it’s been six years, four months, and ten days since December 11, 2004 that I’ve been at this.

Sometime yesterday while I was in the O.R., this blog hit another milestone. Sometime yesterday afternoon, Respectful Insolence™ recorded its 10,000,000th visitor. Hard to believe, isn’t it? Sure, I know there are for whom 10,000,000 visits equal about three or four months’ worth of traffic, but this box of blinky, multi-colored lights does what it can.

Inferiority or superiority complex notwithstanding, I still remain incredulous that there are that many out there who are willing to read what I lay down almost every day. (You might have noticed of late that I rarely post on weekends anymore.) All I can do is thank you all for reading and hope that you keep it up as I continue to lay down the Insolence, both Respectful and not-so-Respectful, on those who need it and crave it most desperately. In the meantime, maybe I’ll take a day off…

Or not. Stay tuned if you want to find out.
