Stop In and Say Hello


This seems kind of lame, but I'm getting the feeling that somehow, someway this blog address has hit the mainstream public and is getting spread pretty quickly. (And not just a 3-way conversation between me, Joel and Adam) Case in point: Before a few days ago, I had never had more than 50-60 hits in a day...yesterday I had 150.

Anyway, just for fun, please respond with this post and tell who you are and how in the hell you found this place. Some of you I know...some of you I don't...but I would feel better knowing who my audience is. Either way, thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy reading the thoughts in my head put to screen, and I hope they are far less disturbing than that guy in Idaho's blog who killed that family and kidnapped that little girl recently.

Did you see that thing?

JEEZ, mix in some prescription drugs or 50 and don't stop taking them until the demons stop talking to you. Yikes.

Welcome again, I hope you have as much fun reading this as I do writing it. And if you think THIS is angry...wait til football and hockey season. :)

How do you know how many people visit your blog? I'd like to know how many hot, single women are checking out mine...

Site meter at the bottom of my main page. It tells me how many hits, how many pages, from where they are coming from etc. Nothing personal information or anything..but gives you an idea as to who is logging on.

There are also some other counters for blogs at the help portion of blogger.com

Not to focus on the wrong thing, but what the hell kind of a name is Shasta for a girl? It's a soda for God's sake!

I was surprised her brother wasn't named "Mountain Dew" or something...

They're kind of funny up in those parts. Too much Jerry Garcia and Joan Biez music.

Hope that put that fucker on Pay-per-view when they fry him. Scum.

AJ ... Mavpuck drives your traffic.

You leave MP, your traffic goes down. You come back (and Adam mentions your blog yesterday), and traffic goes up.

You're welcome.


PS - We'll negotiate your royalty payments later. *smile*

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I see. And here I thought I was doing you guys a favor by putting my more profane and bandwith-guzzling rants over here? My bad. :)


PS - You didn't say hi.

Blogger AJ said...

Oh, and PS...my referals yesterday were ALL OVER the place. CRAZY stuff coming from all over, and people I don't know posting here.

I think it's awsome...I want to get the biggest audience possible, but I'm curious as to where some of these people came from. That's all.

Aj just out of curiousity, what counter do you use?

Blogger AJ said...

Site Meter. It's pretty cool, and measures the traffic pretty well. You can get it from the help menu on blogger.com

OK...according to my site meter, somebody is accessing my blog with a UMich.edu ID. Uhhhhh....Al Montoya? is that you?

Blogger Emily said...

found your blog through Adam's, whom I met while working in SID @ Nebraska.

Blogger AJ said...

Cool. Props to you for sticking around and Adam for pimping like the mad billboard that he is.


PS - You run the baseball blog right? I've seen that as well...very cool stuff.

I'll take a bow...

I'd like to know how people from Maryland have foudn their way to my blog-- unless they are just networking through your blog to mine, or something.

Blogger AJ said...

Never know.

Blogger.com puts a changing list of blogs on it's main page...plus, they all get put on google, so there's a pretty good chance that something you said got picked up by somebody.

I'm still looking for who the hell at University of Michigan is cruising this blog.

Blogger Lalu said...

Green Day fan eh?!?!

Now you're talking. :)

Welcome to the board. How on earth did you find this is what I want to know. :)

I should start using that counter on my LiveJournal account (you might not like my post from yesterday, btw :p). I can't stand it when people comment without at least leaving a name.

Like you said, 'Anonymous' is French for 'Pussy'.

Blogger AJ said...

Hey now...I'm not complaining about anything...just dumbfounded by the power of the internet.

Thanks for stopping by. Appreciate those especially from out of the area stopping by. Maybe I should be a little more global in my rants..whad'ya think?


PS - Agree with you Matty

AJ I use to post on mavpuck but just lurk there now for obvious reasons. I was a season ticket holder for the mavs for a few years and now live in the Portland,OR area after relocationg from Omaha. I've been reading your blog for a few months now, daily.

former mavpuck poster, now more of a lurker there. Always seemed I was on the same train of thought as you but dont quite have your gift of talking shit in a fun manner.

So, hi.

Awsome. Thank you guys for stopping by. I appreciate it and hope you enjoy swinging by from time to time. Like I said, it's tough in the summer when nothing is going on.

Fall should be fun.

I got a rash of hits from all sorts of weird blogs yesterday evening as well, but it was just a 2 hour burst. Weird...

Blogger AJ said...

I have a feeling that Blogger puts a random sampling of blogs up in random places.

I was beginning to think these were nothing but spammers or some sort of randomizer hitting the site, but low and behold, it seems they were atual users....which is cool.

You know who I am and you know how I found my way here.

You didn't say "hi" though.

Ungratefull prick.

Hi AJ you mad ranter you. Your humor overwhelms me. You should be a writer for the "Detroit Free Press". Things are great in the evil empire of Michigan. Sparty is waiting for you and will see you in Nov. when the Spartans kick your teams ass. Lucky for you you have Nenad because he is what's happening.
