1,000,000 Hits On Caffeinated Politics!

January 21, 2010

When this blog started on July 14, 2006 I could not have thought one million hits were possible.  I could not ever have envisioned that Porter Wagoner’s daughter, WSM announcer Keith Bilbrey, great grand-daughters of Madison’s Bascom Clarke (B.B. Clarke Beach), or Diana Nightingale (wife of Earl Nightingale) would find Caffeinated Politics, and be moved to the point of responding to something I had penned.    I could never have thought such kind words would come my way as they did when Belle Marie from Georgia wrote the following in March 2009.

I just want to say a deep thanks for the kind way you honor the singers on the Grand Ole Opry. They have meant so much to so many and you treat them as kindly as we all feel about them at these hard times. It has been many years since I have been able to go to the Opry since I am not able to travel. But the memories you bring back with the movies here are precious to me. I looked over your other writings on those who I heard so often and I cried a bit. But like you write they are on a bigger stage now with God.

Thank you and God Bless You.

When Caffeinated Politics started the scope was intended to stay just on politics, but in time the blog expanded to cover just about every topic imaginable.   While the New York Times is limited to “all the news that’s fit to print”, I am glad the internet allows me space to post on every interest and thought that comes to my mind. 

I am also very pleased to have such a loyal, and it seems ever-growing readership. For that I am grateful.  Last year I was honored to be voted second place in Isthmus’ Annual Manual Poll for local blogger.  That meant a lot to me! 

Posts on Caffeinated Politics can veer from testy and barbed, to sentimental and fluffy.  I truly have as much fun posting on the thrill of throwing boiling water into frigid air as I do on the latest scandal in Washington.    Whatever the reason one finds their way to this blog I am humbled my readers seem to enjoy the efforts.

Thanks to you all!

    Congratulations on all of your hard work over the past three and a half years. I am lucky to live with such a famous blogger–but we have to do something about that paparazzi!
