"...having readers makes writing a hell of a lot more fun."
At 11:34 last night, Shamash Says got its 6,000th hit since its birth in November.
Most readers know that numbers like the number three are important, and they are a big thing to bloggers in general. Thanks to a growing readership of friends and acquaintances, tagging and other bloggers out there who mention the site at their blogs, the numbers have been rising.
The 6,000th person found Shamash via a google search, and stayed around for a while. Check out how this reader found Shamash Says as the first hit out of 86,200. The irony of ironies is the juxtaposition of terms in this search: a metaphor, of sorts, for life. I had to smile.
So, thanks to all of you who take time out of your busy day to check out Shamash Says, and especially those of you who comment. I'd still be writing, even if I didn't have readers.
But, having readers makes writing a hell of a lot more fun.
